We all know that Jesus is the reason for the season and I of all people don't want to downplay that for an instant, but tonight I had so much fun with my boys...with these...
The two oldest boys have a tree they have in their room year round and they plugged it in tonight...I gave them these glasses that when you look into the Christmas lights you see little snowmen...and we sang the Frosty the Snowman song...they loved it..I loved it...it's moments like these that are the true meaning of Christmas to me..not presents, not shopping, it's about family and enjoying one another...and of course celebrating the birth of Jesus.
It's snowing like crazy out tonight...I'm honestly praying for a snow day...the boys need it, especially Austin since he's been doing so much at school...(they push these kids too hard, but that's another soapbox for another day)...though we don't have an official tree up...if the boys are home tomorrow maybe they could help me get the tree out and set up anyway. Not doing much decorating since we won't be home since it's only...17 more days till Disney! I'm getting so pumped about this vacation! We watched the Travel Channel tonight and they had this 2 hour show on Disney World...how cool was that...and it looked so cool, but I think hubby and I truly at that moment tonight realized there is no way we are going to see even a tip of the iceberg in this big huge place. I told him tonight that I don't care if we don't see even half of it, I just want to spend a memorable week enjoying my family and having fun. I watched that TV show tonight and about cried...it looks so beautiful at the holidays and I can't beleive we're going. Thanks Dad!
Well I'm going to try to finish a scrapbook page actually that is about the true meaning of Christmas...hopefully I'll get it done and post it on here soon.
Take time to make those true Christmas memories.
