All is calm.... All is bright...


Is it though? Really?

Man... I dunno about that...

Our culture keeps us GOING GOING GOING until we dang near drop!

I just told Laura tonight - "The real rest comes between Christmas and New Years..."

We DID manage to slow down and roll out as a family to church tonight... and I loved it.

I love when the kids get to come to big church with us and sing and hold burning candles!

And as a bonus - we sang "O Holy Night" - and that second verse gets me EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

Simply cannot sing it without crying - and standing next to my beautiful brown kids... well that just elevates the whole thing!

Equal parts righteous indignation and hope.


But as the night came to an end (for some of us) - it was nice to see the big jolly dude was getting taken care of!

"Dear Santa ~

I hope this is a good little treat and a quick break.

Love - the Hoffman Kids"
I love their joy and excitement!

And honestly... it's contagious!

Here's to wild mornings for everybody and lots of batteries when needed!

Merry Christmas Eve everybody!
