Merry Christmas from The Conovers

Well, another Christmas day has come and gone.

There are toys on the floor of every room in this house; shiny gift bows are rolling through the main hallway like tumbleweeds; and I'm still in my fleece duckie PJs (please see the right photo, above).

But the kitchen is clean; the dishes have been put away; and I'm enjoying a glass of sweet red wine as I write this...

We are tremendously blessed.

And I take absolutely nothing for granted.

Not our health, not the Italian feast we inhaled at dinnertime; and certainly not each other.

All I wanted for Christmas is what money can't buy...and I'm grateful to have received it.

I hope your day -- and those that remain of this holiday season -- are filled with the things that make your heart full and light.

I'll be back on Monday with another brand-spanking-new post, my last of 2014.

In the meantime, tell me this: Is the old adage really true? That kids enjoy playing with boxes and wrapping paper more than the toys inside of them?


Yeah?

Thought so.

But will she still be this way at, say, 17?

Because giving her a bow and a roll of wrapping paper as opposed to an iPhone 37 will save her father and me a on of money.

Merry Christmas to all of you!

  4. Hahaha, you can try giving her the box verses the phone and see how it goes. I would just enjoy now and that a box bigger than her is an exciting toy. About 6 years ago I would for summers buy packing boxes for the summer. The kids in the neighborhood would come over and the boxes would be transformed for the entire summer. Trains, rocket ships, castles, log cabins, ships, forts and so on and so on...... It was fun to see what they were turned into next. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!!!

    1. Yes!!! Cab't WAIT to get more creative with the boxes this summer...Scotty knows what can be done by way of putting three large boxes together: He saw an AMAZING cardboard rocket on Nick Jr. TV a while back, and we've been itching to recreate it.

      Merry Christmas -- and Happy New Year -- to you and your lovely family, Ray, and thank you for commenting!
