Merry Christmas to all!
As the holidays fly by and the New Year approaches; I, as many do, start taking a look back and the past year. And what a year it has been. My life was changed forever this year when the Hubby and I found out we had made a baby. This Christmas will mean more than any past Christmas ever has.
For that reason I couldn’t be more excited for the next two days. I LOVE the holidays. I really do. I love the food, the cookies (they cannot be under the same category because Christmas cookies are a special food group all their own) the shopping (yes I am one of those crazy a$$ people on Black Friday standing in line for hours in the freezing cold just to save a few bucks. And I have to best time doing it) the lights, the decorations. I look forward to seeing family and the friends I only the to see this time of year. I thoroughly enjoy the the mass chaos of and feeding frenzy that is the “gift opening”. The fun cocktails and wonderful winter beers. I absolutely love the holidays.
This year, although Parker is too little too know what is really going on all around him, he brings a whole new meaning to Christmas. There is only one 1st Christmas for a child and you can never get it back. I fully intend to annoy everyone around me by taking far too many pictures and I’ll try not to cry when we open his first Christmas ornament. There are those who can’t be with us this year and it breaks my heart that they are missing something so special.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours. May it be filled with wonderful family, great friends, and really good beer!
