An agreeable mess

The living room floor is littered with toddler toys.
The dining room table is overrun with a half-finished jigsaw puzzle.
Books and magazines are scattered on various chairs.
Sections of the newspaper are crammed between sofa cushions.
Dirty clothes are piled in a corner of the bedroom.
Bath toys stick to the side of the tub.
Cookies, bread, and candies have taken over the kitchen counters.
A small electric Christmas tree flashes unnatural neon colors.
I look around the house, surrounded by the happy chaos.  
The scene screams of holidays with family – and I delight in it.

  1. This is the greatest picture I have seen yet! I absolutely love it. “…the kids are making memories” describes the craft chaos all visitors see when they enter my house! What a beautiful saying! Thank so much for sharing it!!!
