Christmas is here!

Christmas is almost here! 

I can't believe we are about to spend our third Christmas with our two little munchkins.  This year is, by far, the most fun we have had with them.  They love seeing all the Christmas lights and reindeer and stars and snow (what little we have had).  It is the first year we can really see their eyes light up with wonder.  And boy, does it make it so much more fun to celebrate with little ones. 

The season has been full already, but not too busy.  My planning and scheduling kept us afloat. We have had a few parties, sent out our cards, bought and wrapped most of the presents.  This next week ahead slows down for us just to enjoy.  We will go to a Christmas display tonight, drive around and look at lights this week, maybe pop up to the mountain to play in some snow, sip hot chocolate by the tree, and then look forward to the candlelit Christmas Eve service and the festivities of Christmas Day.  We will spend those days with family, but shortly after some friends will arrive with a little one to play with the boys.  That sounds just right! 

It's also my husband and my 10 year wedding anniversary right after Christmas!  Can you believe it?  What a way to ring in the new year.  I'm really excited about this season and already enjoying the special time we have had.

Merry Christmas everyone!
