Well, it’s Christmas, and I can’t wait to see how Avery reacts to what will surely be a mountain of gifts from Santa. He has, after all, been a very good boy this year!
I’ve always loved Christmas, and, though it’s been even crazier than usual this year, it’s also been more magical. This is our first year as a family, and I wouldn’t trade that for anything. I try to look at things as they must appear to a little boy seeing them for the first time, and I can only imagine how exciting it all must be! The lights, the music, the presents…
We’ve had a busy few days, going house to house, visiting friends and family, spreading holiday cheer. This morning we’re heading to my parents’ house for breakfast and presents, then people are coming to us, so we can enjoy a relaxing afternoon filled with food and fun. The house I worked hard to clean will get destroyed again (but that’s why we get another week before New Year’s hits, right?). We’ll eat too much. We’ll stay up too late. But that’s what this day is for. And we’ll enjoy every minute.
I can only hope that each of you has a very merry Christmas. No matter where you are or how you plan on spending the day, take some time to just enjoy yourself. We all need a holiday once in a while! And, conveniently, today just happens to be one. Enjoy it!
