This Christmas party.
That Christmas party.
So easy to get lost in it all.
So easy to lose its meaning.
Yesterday, I had one thought in my hustle and bustle:
I just want to put it all aside and throw myself down at the altar of Jesus Christ.
Experience His peace.
Delight in His joy.
Bathe in His love.
Just for a moment.

What up party people? Oh, perhaps, that’s just us. We celebrated Anna’s 5th birthday and Kris’ 36th birthday this weekend. I was actually scheduled to be induced with Anna on Kris’ birthday, November 8th, but my little girl had a mind of her own and came one day early.
That mind of hers, it has not changed. And, I’m sure she is thrilled she has a day all to herself. She was quick to inform us that birthdays mean you “can do whatever you want.”
I tend to agree.
Her day only went uphill after waking up to this.
Kris moved the beauty to the living room, and I’ve kindly asked it be replaced back in Anna’s room. I cannot continue to nearly pee my pants every time I walk by the animal. I have enough trouble with that when I sneeze for crying (or sneezing) out loud.
Kris had a lovely day yesterday. However, I do feel a tad sorry for him. It’s rather difficult to enter the spotlight once Anna’s show has concluded. But, he doesn’t seem to mind. He’s pretty fond of his 8 pound 5 ounce birthday gift.
He’s also pretty fond of John Henry. And, I do have to share a picture he drew for Kris yesterday.
This made me laugh out loud. I did ask Kris’ permission to share his sweet gift. He said, “It’s okay since my confidence level is pretty high that my feet clearly do not stink.”
I appreciate the Shrek-like feet even more than his appropriate, possessive use of “Dad’s.”
Annnnd, that’s all I got. Or have. Or whatev’.
Just so completely happy Kris and Anna Takle were born.
