I hope you are all enjoying your December and counting down until the birth of our Savior! What a wonderful and blessed season it is!
We are planning to get and decorate our Christmas Tree today, and I’m so excited to see my kids eyes light up as we light the tree. This year they both understand and are super excited about Christmas, and it’s so fun to watch them share in the joy and magic of this season!
Remember back in October when I was going to start early on Christmas stuff? Yeah, ahem. Well, when my first trimester of pregnancy kicked in full swing, all plans and motivation when right out the window.
Although I, of course, wish that I had been able to do more, it’s okay with me, because there is always next year. And I’m still looking forward to doing some Christmas crafts with my kids, teaching them true meaning of Christmas, and making some homemade gifts. Here’s a few posts that have inspired me recently.
