15 days until Christmas

Christmas is such a special holiday for children. The joy and awe they experience in the world around them is especially heightened this time of year. We went out to look at Christmas lights tonight and my littlest was squealing with joy at all of the decorations and festivities. And my son, a big boy at almost 7 years old, just loves to decorate the house and has taken to creating little pieces of art with his markers and crayons and wrapping them up as gifts to give under the Christmas tree.

So although I feel totally overwhelmed with all of the preparation that occurs for this holiday, experiencing my children’s joy over it all makes it worth it.

She’s really figured it out this year, she’s even shaking those presents to see what’s inside…

Mr. “all boy”, I’m telling you…
