Christmas Eve.

by Amy M.

The kids and I really, really enjoyed the beautiful day.  Cooking, Christmas music, playing outside…it was just so lovely and perfect!

Though we missed being with our extended families, it was nice to stay home and have a cozy little Christmas.  Uncle Michael was able to join us, which made it even better!  The kids adore him!

Gosh, the month of December flies by.  It can be tricky to find a balance between getting everything done while simultaneously soaking up every single minute.  I think we managed just fine, but now I’ll (hopefully) be better prepared for next year!  In any event, the kids seemed to love it!
