The tree is up and filling our home with light and beauty (and endless fun since Maya and Anna have been playing with the ornaments daily since we put the tree up 3 weeks ago). Beautiful lights outside bring a little holiday cheer to our neighborhood. Presents are wrapped and hiding in the closet. All the ingredients are purchased for a what promises to be a very yummy Christmas dinner.
I love this time of year. All the holiday cheer. All the smiling faces. Finding the perfect gifts for everyone on my list. I’ve always loved this time of year, but seeing it and living it through the eyes of children just make sit that much better.
I hope you’ll have a wonderful weekend and enjoy all those last minute preparations. If you are traveling, safe travels.
