*Haley is sooo excited…it’s Christmas Eve and it couldn’t get here fast enough as far as she is concerned.
I remember what it was like as a kid and I got excited too.
There is something about about Christmas that is just so magical and some may say the magic comes from all the gifts but you know, looking back, my memories are not about the gifts (though I had plenty) the memories that stand out most in my mind are of other things like the way things smell …. the smells of Christmas, LOL
For real though…Christmas wrapping paper doesn’t smell like regular wrapping paper, not to me anyway LOL Chrismas has it’s own distinct smell. (So I’m a dork, you all knew that already.)
I love decorating the tree and turning off all the lights and drinking hot chocolate, I love the music and driving around looking at Christmas lights, I love making Christmas crafts out of weird things like baby food jars and making pine cones look like little Christmas trees. It’s all the little things that make the holidays special.
For me…Christmas is about love and laughter and coming together like at no other time of the year, that’s what I remember when I think of Christmas and I hope when Haley is older this will be what she remembers most as well.
I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and I wish you all good things for the year ahead.
