Christmas Memories

Children’s excitement as Christmas approaches is so contagious that it is impossible not to feel giddy this time of year. I confess that, like the kids, I had a hard falling asleep last night, anticipation of Christmas morning keeping me awake. William was so anxious he was up at 1:40am and then again at 3:00. We finally let him get up at 6am.

The day was spent grazing on candy, playing games, watching Christmas movies, cooking a feast and enjoying being able to spend the day together. Bailey gnawed on his Christmas bone, Remi gorged on catnip-flavored treats, Wiggy Wabbit enjoyed celery and sunflower seeds. Even Flash shared some meal worms with his fishy friends. We laughed, we stuffed ourselves within inches of popping, I even confess to catching a small nap after lunch.

And just like that, it is all over. After months of excitement, planning and preparation, Christmas has once again come to an end. The presents have all been opened, the feast consumed. Kids will once again be able to sleep at night. The memories of the day will last a lifetime, though. Memories of a day spent together. A day of dreams come true and wished granted. A day of magic. A day where anything seems possible. Special memories. Unforgettable moments. Knowing that no matter where we are, where we live or what we are doing, as long as we have each other, things are just as they should be.

I hope all your Christmas wishes came true. Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.

  1. Christmas may be over but now we have the New Year to look forward to. The anticipation of things to come.

    happy New Year

  2. Merry Christmas! We love all your Christmas pictures. We don’t think there was room for another present under the tree. It was packed! I really like the one outside your home. How cute. We’re glad you all had a good day and were able to enjoy the day just being together. We love you. Now, on to Happy New Year! We look forward to many more blogs. Glad you figured out a way to make them happen.

    • Our tree was pretty packed! The sunrise yesterday was beautiful, Remi was watching us through the window and Nathan was playing with his sea turtle puppet – what’s that country song about the best view being the one outside looking in? That was exactly how it felt. Love and miss you!

  3. Lonestar is the group with the song you’re talking about. I like that one, too. I was just wondering, where on Earth did you sleep?! It looks like your bed is a little covered with presents!
