Christmas 2009

Now that I am a parent, I do love Christmas more than ever! It's always so much work decorating the house and the tree, family pictures, Christmas cards, baking cookies, letters from Santa and of course the presents. Every year, I eagerly plan each and every detail for each day of December and at times asking myself why do I do this to myself. Then, Christmas morning comes and it's the best feeling ever to see the excitement in all my kids' adorable faces. Christmas morning at about 5:30am and they all run downstairs just beyond excited! While John and I wanting to sleep in because we were up until 1 am wrapping presents the night before. Buffy reading the letter from Santa with such great belief. Chloe and Piper just cannot contain themselves with excitement. And Chad just is happy no matter what day it is. We just love him so much!!! I do feel so blessed, beyond blessed for all that I have in my life. I am especially thankful for my family at Christmas time.
