Celebrate the Small Things-December 27, 2013

It's Friday, which means it's time once again to Celebrate the Small Things with VikLit!

My husband has vacation until after New Year's, so that's throwing off my whole schedule, hence why I'm posting so late today.  Still, the quality family time is nice, so I'm not complaining!

Overall, we had a great Christmas.  We spent Christmas Eve with my in-laws, Christmas morning at home with our super excited kids, and the rest of Christmas Day with my dad.  There were lots of great gifts, good food, and interesting times all around.  That's something worth celebrating.

Also, something amazing happened.  I'm sure at least a few of you heard about the meteor spotted in Iowa and a few surrounding states on Thursday.  Well, guess what.  We saw it!  We were driving north on our way home from shopping when something bright caught my eye.  This meteor was one of the best I've ever seen, and it glowed a bright green.  Seeing it streak through the sky, and then break up right before my eyes, was so cool!  I wish I'd had a camera handy, but those things happen so quickly you don't have time to react.  All you can do is sit back and enjoy the splendor.

So, overall, it's been a pretty great week.  What would you like to celebrate?
