..about Christmas time:
Catching that oh so adorable 5 year old daycare girl quietly singing "Away in a Manger."
The hunt for the PERFECT gift and that feeling of joy when you think you've found it.
Tearing up during that BEAUTIFUL favorite Christmas song.
The breathtaking candlelight services. I'll never forget the candlelight services at our church, and the beautiful sight of all those candles lit. One year, I remember holding my dad's hand, and pretending to sing, but really just mouthing the words, listening to my dad sing harmony to Away In a Manger, thinking it was the coolest thing I had ever heard. (I still think that, by the way.)
The magic of Christmas snow.
The memories of Christmas Eve dinners at my grandmothers house. This is a tradition I now do at my house, and is so special to me. I remember how my brother and I would always listen so closely as we were leaving her apartment, listening oh so close for bells from Santa's sleigh.
Cookies and candies taste SO much better around Christmas time.
It will be over before we know it!! Enjoy the season and make some memories!
