A tree lighting ceremony that we missed the moment of lighting for because we were standing in line for refreshments and facing the wrong way.
And finally, fireworks, which we managed not to screw up, enjoyed with an obligatory cup of hot cocoa for all.
While my first inclination was to beat myself up for fumbling my self-imposed parental duties, Kevin reminded me that the only thing they are going to remember is the cool light show, the huge Christmas tree aglow in the middle of town and spending it with us- nibbling on chocolate chip cookies and sipping their sugary concoction.
Of course, he is right. For that, for them and for him I am thankful!
*Everyday this December I am striving to post a picture-a-day in the hopes of capturing the little moments that may seem ordinary at the time but, when strung together throughout this naturally hectic month, become the extraordinary ones that keep me ground until the new year. If you want to join me go here. I would love to share in your days as well.
