Early Christmas Break

Today I'm on my third snow day this week.  There is so much snow coming down that more than likely we will be out tomorrow, Friday, as well.  That means that we are officially on Christmas Break.

It would be nice if I could get out of the driveway.  My little Honda could probably get up the hill, but it's not worth trying it today ~ maybe not even tomorrow.  Therefore Nugget and I will be snow bound for a couple of days.

Being stuck at home never bothers me.  I am a homebody ~ I love being home.  Nugget and I will play and maybe do some coloring.   We can also get an early start on some baking.  Today both of us are trying to get rid of a cold.  I can't begin to tell you how tired I am of being sick.  Hopefully the extra time off will help us all get healthy before Christmas.

Several years ago I heard a Christmas song by Third Day.  If you followed my old blogs you may remember the song.  The title of the song is Merry Christmas.  The song was written by one of the band members while he and his family were waiting to adopt from China.  Last year I don't think I listened to the song once ~ I couldn't.

This morning I had my iPod on playing some Christmas songs.  I was in the kitchen and Nugget was playing in the family room.  The song by Third Day came on and it surprised me.  I haven't heard it this year.  When I looked into the family room this is what I saw and thankfully the Flip was nearby so I could capture this memory:

This time the tears were coming for a different reason.  It's hard to believe that our wait is over and that this Christmas we can finally hold our little miracle.  Here is Nugget during the third verse, the verse that, at times, I never thought would come true for us.

I know Nugget isn't doing anything really cute or exciting to watch.  I do love how he keeps pressing buttons on the remote and then looking at the tv to see if he changed anything.  :o)  This video was more about me and the fact that I am really looking at him while this song is playing.  It may not make sense, but it does to me.

Here is the full version of Third Day's song in case you haven't heard it, or if you'd like to hear it again.


  1. Watching this gave me the chills. What a miracle Nugget is.
    Enjoy your time together while you're snowed in.
    Blessings to your family.

  2. Oh my goodness, that made me cry. Knowing you - I totally get what this means to you. It's beautiful...

  3. You put a tear in my eye! I'm so happy your sweet nugget is home this year for Christmas. :D

  4. Oh sweetie! Tears of joy here for you! Precious, sweet Nugget joy! God is so good and this year Nugget is home....FOREVER! Love you! SOOO happy for you! xo

  5. Oh boy... tears.
    I get it. Totally get it. What an amazing and surreal moment.
