Lizzie: Mommy, are we late?
Me: Yes Lizzie, we're already 4 minutes late.
Lizzie: Wow. And you're not even yelling. That is SO awesome!
* * * * *We're watching The Grinch Who Stole Christmas (original animated version) the other night and it gets to this part in the story...
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before! "Maybe Christmas," he thought, "doesn't come from a store. "Maybe Christmas...perhaps...means a little bit more!"
Lizzie turns to Jeremy and says in her most meekest serious voice, "Daddy, all I want for Christmas is my family."
What a sweet moment it was - she got it. She really really got it! Who needs all that "stuff" on Christmas morning anyway? All we really need is our family!
