The carols are cranking, our Christmas cards are addressed, our tree is twinkling, the stockings are hanging, the lights on the outside of the house are glowing, & CHRISTMAS is in full swing here in our home!
Christmas time is most definitely my favorite time of year & I get all warm & fuzzy inside every time it comes around! When I see those white twinkling lights, smell sugar cookies baking in the oven, feel the warmth of a fire crackling in the fireplace, hear the jingle of bells in the distance, my heart goes pitter patter & I can't help but be filled with giddiness! My excitement at Christmas time is like that of a child, & I can barely contain it!
But this year in particular, I'm not just excited- I am over the moon, bursting at the seams EXCITED! I have dreamt for years of the day that I would have my own children, all cozy in their warm Christmas jammies, singing Christmas carols while decorating the tree, making sugar cookie "masterpieces" by using loads of frosting & sprinkles, snuggling under big heavy blankets watching Christmas classics, sipping hot cocoa with tiny marshmallows piled on top, & carrying out all kinds of Christmas traditions-both old & new! Well, guess what?! This is the year all of that finally begins! If I thought Christmas was amazing before, well then, I simply have no words for what it is now! Now that I have my own child, Christmas has become even more exciting, more fun, more merry, more joyous, & much much more meaningful! Getting to see Christmas through Jett's eyes will be my most favorite gift this year- I am sure of it!! This Christmas season is definitely going to be a special one, & I can't wait to make the very most of it!
It really is "The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year"!!!
Here are a few pics of us "decking our halls" this year!
