Christmas Break

I wish I bought these pants in every size.

Well, Christmas is just about here. The advent calendar is almost finished and the excitement level is SUPER high. We didn't get everything on our Christmas Time To Do List done, but we did a lot and had fun, and sometimes just making the list gives me a thrill.

We have been crafting like crazy and talking a lot about the giving part of Christmas. I think they are getting it a little bit and seem genuinely excited to make and share gifts. We donated toys to an agency that works with children in foster care and the kids have been talking about it weeks later. They were disappointed that they didn't get to meet the kids, but we did get a tour of some of the visiting rooms. Drew has even set some toys aside that he wants to give to others, on his own. I couldn't be more proud.

The next few days will be filled with more preparations. We are co-hosting Christmas Eve dinner and hosting Christmas Day. Then Aunt Melissa's wedding is the day after Christmas - can you believe it?! If you feel a little post-Christmas let down, just prepare yourself for the pics of my two boys in Tuxedos! I can't wait.

So, Happy, Merry, Joyous Christmas to you. May it be filled with Family and Love, exactly as it should be.
