I don't know which is more magical...being a kid at Christmas time or having kids at Christmas time. It has truly been one of the best Christmases I think we've ever had (-) the hacking & nausea;) I think December just comes with sickness or else we'd all be so joyful we couldn't stand each other!
Never in my wildest dreams did I think Cade would be able to stay home the e n t i r e month of December! We've actually had time to watch Christmas movies together, go Christmas light lookin, <attempt> to visit Santa & sit in his lap, Christmas shop, wake up to Spider shenanigans, decorate our own house & tree, + bake lots of goodies! Can we just repeat this month over again??
As I mentioned before, we've all been passing cold symptoms around. I've coughed my head off & felt nauseous for days. The boys seem to feel cruddy in the mornings, but thankfully they lose it by lunchtime. I'm just thankful it hasn't been worse!
When we got back to Tennessee Christmas Eve night, the boys were totally OUT & I had (unknowingly) taken a dose of nighttime cough syrup which completely killed my momentum (thanks hubby!).
Since the boys were asleep, I admit I was a little bummed they couldn't put out cookies for Santa or sprinkle the reindeer feed Cam had made at school & was so excited to throw in the yard.
My heart is always sad when December 25th rolls around. So many people are already moving on to other holidays & future agendas. Shoot. I ran in to get wrapping paper at Target December 23rd & they had b a t h i n g s u i t s hanging in the front of the store. Come on people! The first day of winter was the 21st! I just want to linger in the Christmas spirit for awhile. Tree, garland, Holly channel & all! And that's just what I plan to do this week:) How about you? I keep a bit of Christmas cheer in my heart all year long!
