1. watching and savoring the moment...of putting up the Christmas tree with the kids. Seems like such a pain to us, but they bring out the wonder & excitment of it. Seeing the 1 yr old's face light up in awe when Daddy plugged in the lights!
2. the rare opportunity to go out with my husband. True, it turned into a group thing, but was still nice. And this way, he knows he still owes me a date!
