Go Ahead and Pin This
We had a wonderful, exhausting, fun-filled Christmas vacation. Vic wasn't able to take as much time off of work as we would have liked, but we still managed to get a lot of quality time in with the kiddos, Vic's family (all but one of his siblings came to Utah), and then my parents who came from Russia for a visit!
We held our famous annual gingerbread competition (more on that later), ate far too much food, and had a great time watching the cousins play (and fight). But the highlight, for me, was one of the gifts Vic gave me.
Amongst the wrapping paper chaos, Zoë lying sickly and out of energy on the couch (the poor girl has an abscessed tooth and has to have surgery this week!) he waited until the end of the unwrapping fanfare and handed me this folder but told me I couldn't flip through it yet. He then got out a little brown scroll (we wrap all of our presents in brown paper) and read/sang a poem to the tune, "The 12 Days of Christmas" that he had written, that coincided with each date he had planned.
