Merry Christmas 2013!
I love Christmas; the nostalgic music, sweet smells coming from the oven, children who are buzzing with anticipation, little fingers that are eager to destroy ornaments, the UPS truck, Christmas movies that never get old, snow, twinkly lights, rosy cheeks, but most of all I love that my son sang “Happy Birthday Jesus” just before he tore open his gifts.
We snapped this picture Christmas eve (yesterday):
My son loves his snuggles from Mama before he goes to bed (and I’ll take what I can get before it becomes uncool to snuggle mom at bedtime). Here’s how last night’s conversation went:
Me “Did you get everything you wanted for Christmas?”
he said: “I want one more thing…”
me: “what’s that?”
he said: “I just want you….. and Tato (Dad) and God and our family.”
me: ” 🙂 ” followed by extra snuggles
He’s all sugar.
Wishing you and your loved ones a warm, beautiful and blessed Christmas.
Yeah. Happy Birthday Jesus!
Tomorrow we’re off to church and then dinner at my parent’s house. How are you celebrating Jesus’ Birth? Are you churching? Feasting? Gifting (re-gifting?)? Working? I’d love to know what you’re up to on Christmas.
