Sunday morning, we'll wake up and finally get to put baby Jesus where he belongs.
The advent calendar I had growing up is one of my favorite memories of the Christmas season. My dad carrying me out of bed to the calendar and helping me hang the little bear in the next room of his little bear house... as every day, he tried to make his way to finding his very own Christmas tree set up for him on Christmas morning. It's been fun carrying on the tradition with my littles.
After our own four-person gift opening on Sunday morning, we'll head to my parents' to celebrate Christmas #3 with them. And then it's another week off of work, and looking forward to a New Year's Eve welcoming Cassi and James home from England and Christmas #4 with the Ubbens. I love that our Christmas celebrating is being spread out three weeks long.
I love that I'm getting some extra quality time with my goofy boys who are growing up so fast.
I'm doing my best to take it all in - knowing that at this time next year, their little hand prints will be that much bigger, but praying that the magic in their eyes during this time of year never fades away with age.
We're making memories this week.
Wishing you a magical, sparkly, safe, celebratory weekend.
Merry Christmas everyone!
