Christmas Dreams and Broken Wings

. .... .. .... .... ..... .. ... .... .. .. .. . . ... ... ..  .

So, it's that time again!  Christmas!!  Where the kids have each shared their Christmas Dreams or Wishes and one of these is on Caleb's list.  (You might want to check it out!! - please, if you can take a minute...it will be helpful for understanding - what this post is about.)

Guess what we found him playing with over the weekend?
Why, this hanger - of all things... or part of it, thereof.

We should probably return the store-bought item which just so happens to be hiding in the closet.  What do you think?  We could save ourselves a buck or two...

He has been having such a blast with this..this plane-hanger... and honestly, I'm kinda glad my kid can be content with a simple ole clothes hanger.  
Because, even I can't wait for Christmas this year..

In fact. This was funny...
So, he's standing in the kitchen - Sunday Morning... just hanging out off to the one side of the room.  A bit odd, I thought.  Here he is ..kind of glancing off into space, with the said hanger-turned-plane in hand, when my husband walks through the kitchen, just in front of him, and we hear, "Dad - stop messing up the galaxy."  What?!?!?!?! 

((Scott and I - We just rolled with laughter...))

Here all the "dust particles", that he could see in the sunlight had become his star studded outer space.
With the single shake of a kitchen towel - I filled his universe once more!

Oh boy!!  Wait till he sees what will be hiding "under the tree"... on Christmas Day!

Here he is showing me all the imaginary controls, and all the seats and all the "whatever else" goes into a plane...

And... yes!  We're sporting a broken pinky.  This happened about a week and a half ago, while playing catch football... with one of his uncles.

He goes back for follow up x-ray's, sometime today.

I'm praying for "healing in the wings"... that his finger will be fine and we can resume to what is called normal activity.  Can you believe me if I say - not much has changed, though, in his busyness. He is STILL all one bundle of action packed fun... and not much stops him.

Until next time...

UPDATED to ADD, regarding Caleb's broken pinky finger:
The Dr. visit today entailed more xrays.  The finger is healing - slowly - it appears we'll still be on activity "restrictions" and a bandaged splint will be "our friend" for the next two weeks.


  1. Joy thru a child's eyes... so amazing... I love how he is using what is simple and given... it can take him so far in life. Let the fun continue and to think about the dust as a galaxy... loved it... He reminds me so much of my brother when he was small Blond hair and all... Lovely boy...
    Praying his finger gets better.... XO

    1. Prayers for Caleb.... hopefully it will heal soon... Prayers for family too...

    2. Thank you, Connie!! Thank you for your kind words and heartfelt prayers...


  2. I hope his finger heals nicely. My ganddaughter finds simple things like that to play with for hours too. I wish I could find the joy in the most mundane of things like a child does sometimes.

    1. All three of mine are like this - but Caleb is certainly the most entertained in this way.

      Thanks for stopping by!!

  3. Oh, that is so sweet. It's amazing what kids will find to play with! :-) Hope Caleb's finger will heal up quickly and without any problems. Hope you all are enjoying this beautiful season. Take care.♥

  4. Aww...a broken pinky? Such a sweet post, Bevy. I hear you on the "can't wait for Christmas Day" from your perspective...these are such FUN days when the children are little!! Enjoy every minute of it all!! Merry Christmas to you from us. Hugs, Camille

  5. The joys of childhood. They are so content with simple things. I wish adults could be more like that. Praying for the healing of Caleb's finger.

  6. Wow! What a GREAT imagination!!! So cuute!! But it was even better to hear this story straight form you!!! But you didn't mention his finger! I'm sorry! We'll pray it heals quicker and doesn't interfere with present opening! ;) Dave says, "See, football, it's evil!!" (in reference to Caleb's finger and also when Dave sprained his ankle playing touch football the day after we moved to this house! lol!!)

  7. Poor Caleb! and his poor pinky!

    I love when kids use their imagination and play with ordinary things.


Thanks for coming by, today! You're visits always mean so much...
