12/12/12 is officially my Christmas!

Raise your hand if you finished your finals and closed on your house today.

It's kind of hard to type this while simultaneously doing a happy dance.  The grass is browner, the trees are deader, the sky is greyer - it's all just so beautiful!

And, apparently all my daughter wants for Christmas is a book light - score!
And my son thinks he can play baseball for the Yankees with a bat growing out of his torso - what a wonderfully realistic goal for his life, I love it!
As I type this my oldest is teaching forcing my youngest to learn a very complicated Christmas song that he will never be able to get right and in about two minutes he will get frustrated and revolt against her demands and she will scream and cry and beg him to JUST DO IT RIGHT and will fall to the floor in a heap of tears.  
And guess what?  I don't even care.  And I'm not going to get annoyed because it is distracting me from my studying, and I'm not going to remind them that we own another house down the street that I can send them to, alone, if they don't shape up.

The Lord is faithful.  I feel so blessed.

Yeah!! That is so exciting! I'm so happy for you all to close on that house finally! (I've noticed that Cooper makes Maddie do "homework" reminds me of Mia and Bode)

Praise God that the third time was a charm! Or was it the fourth... Anyway, so happy that your house finally sold at last. You are so right...God is faithful. And one day this will make a good story/testimony. It's always easier to look back on stuff than be in the middle of it. Merry Christmas!
