It's Holiday Time

I'm not sure why, but I had a hard time getting into the Christmas spirit this year.  I dreaded digging the tree and decorations out of the basement and lugging them up.  I did it for the kids, just like my Mom always did it for us.  After we were done, the looks on the girls faces made all the effort worth it.  They had so much fun.

The girls have been having a grand time moving the ornaments around the tree every day.  They love playing with the Winter village and moving the people around from house to house.  I've also been allowing them to wrap one or two presents each day, for our friends and extended family.  They get so excited to see what they'll be giving to their loved ones, and haven't once asked if they can have the presents for themselves.

So, even when I don't have the energy, or feel in the holiday mood, these sweet little faces get me out of my slump and make the holidays cheery and bright!
