Places We Are Going
We did not spend an entire week in our pajamas - we also saw friends, went for walks and saw an amazing Chinese dance show Shen-Yun (another Christmas present from me for an entire family). We all really enjoyed the show even though we wished that this American based company refrained from heavy handed political commentary on modern China and just focused on the beauty of Chinese culture. There was one number that actually gave Smarty nightmares.
What We Are Reading
Smarty mostly enjoyed the books that she got for Christmas, and I finished a thought provoking semi-fantasy This I Know by Eldonna Edwards.Disclosure: I am an Amazon affiliate, and this post contains Amazon affiliate links.
Favorite Moments of the Week
It was really heart-warming to see Smarty so grateful, happy, and relaxed. Often, I feel that she is wasting her time, but this Christmas week it felt that we all really treasured this opportunity to just enjoy being together and doing what we like. I almost want to "bottle" this feeling of happy relaxation to use as needed once we go back to work and school. But, in the meantime, we have another week to enjoy and we fully intend to do so.
How was your Christmas week?
