I don't mean the holiday season as a whole (although I not a holiday hater by any means).
But I love this time specifically...the few days before Christmas when the work is pretty much done. The decorations are up, the presents are bought, the packages are mailed, the cards are sent, and the menus are pretty much planned.
I still have a pretty serious amount of wrapping that needs to happen, but there is plenty of time to stop for a moment and just enjoy.
My kiddos are definitely bouncing off the wall with pre-Christmas excitement, but I think that's pretty normal. I'm sure all the sugar cookies aren't helping matters... But really, it's just nice that they are old enough to enjoy the season. Sometimes it's hard to be the one that makes all the magic happen, but there is undeniable magic in the air right now.
My in laws arrive tomorrow and then our celebration will officially begin. I'm going to try my best to enjoy it all and not stress over the little stuff. (Or even the big stuff...)
Happy Holidays everyone! I hope you and yours have a great holiday.
P.S- While I lost my blog mojo, this happened...
My baby girl turned 2! I am experiencing the bittersweet reality of your baby not really being a baby any longer.
