This was the first time I have ever spent my Christmas at home since having kids, and I can't even begin to say how full my heart is.

Some days as a parent are just...mind numbing. I mean, don't judge, you feel it too. But there is so much magic in the everyday. The early wake ups just mean I get to watch the sunrise with them. I really try to capture that. I hope my kids look back at all these pictures and can see all the joy they brought into my life, and forget al the times that we doggypaddled through our days.
Remember to find the magic in your everyday. Remember to cherish common. Train your eyes to see the beauty and your heart to be open to it.

Carter is recently obsessed with the Avengers? Well he wrote a new character into their stories. "Stick Ninja." (which is totally suspish, because Carter resembles a stick and has been a ninja for a couple of years now.) He actually designed a comic book last night, and wrote the first episode about how Stick Ninja came to be. Obviously he was a good student, dinosaurs and gamma involved. I feel like a psychologist would have a field day with this.
Carter was appalled to hear the "C word" come out of my mouth yesterday. (Crap) Chris assured him that there are much more interesting C words.
He is learning all these new words at school and he comes home and whispers "Mom, So-And-So said the A word today." Sometimes it is hilarious. For instance, H- hate. S-shut up. I-idiot. So I always have to ask, "what is the A word?" He surprised me and said "A S S" I assured him his ears won't fall off, but if he starts using them him lip will get swollen.
