I woke up normal this morning. Same time. Normal time, thinking about my gym time.
Then it hit me
This is it!
We spend so much time planning, and decorating and preparing our hearts each December and I realized this morning….THIS IS IT!
THIS IS THE DAY!
Well, one of them.
Time to make some memories for our young (and old)
LOL so I changed my focus for the day, put on my Santa hat and opened my mind to ‘experiencing’ this year’s Christmas holiday.
Yep, we are all ready!
My elf is ready!
Even our greyhound got in the spirit of things this morning!
And, if your house looks like ours this Christmas, you have a lot of this…
And, for me, nothing spells ‘celebration’ like..
If you have been following this blog for a while you know each Christmas starts early for our girls.
That’s right. The week before Christmas boxes and boxes and cards and gifts come in from our girl’s many special Grandmothers, each with their own very special version of ‘Love’ for their adopted granddaughters.
The more love the better!
Yes, our girls are blessed with about 5 very special sets of grandparents. And the love and generosity they show these girls is touching.
This year that received everything from sweets, high-tech gadgets, clothes, money, toys, gift cards and even a Movie Night or two in the mail.
So we wanted to send each of our adopted family a Christmas card and a glimpse of some of the smiles and kid quotes that happened when opening these great gifts. And one very special version of ‘the spirit of Christmas’.
Thank YOU so very much ladies!
We love you all so much!
And as you can see everything was a big hit with the girls.
OK, I have dilly-dallied long enough. Its 11am and I am being called out to the living room. It seems Grandma #5 is taking her turn at
spoiling spreading some Christmas cheer for our girls.
I hope your holiday is filled with lots and lots of happy smiles.
Time to be a kid again.
And remember the reason for the season.
Merry Christmas everyone!
