I do have Christmas cards printed and in envelopes... just not all addressed and in mail quite yet! I'm always last minute getting everything done... just a flaw of mine I guess.
Anyway--I hope that everyone has a wonderful Christmas and very Happy New Year! I am sooo excited.. Today is the last day of work for me for about 2 weeks or so. I can't wait to spend some time with my kids and husband. It always seems that this time of the year is so hectic and busy... party here, party there, gift for kids teachers, gift for this, gift for that.. I really enjoy it all, but it can get exhausting. Once again, I waited to the last minute to finish the kids gifts for their teachers and was up until 1 this morning completing those. They turned out cute although I'm pooped today.
As I was working on some other gifts Wednesday night, right in the middle of one of Gavin's serious "Tom and Jerry" marathons that he enjoys, he walks over to me and and we had this conversation:
Gavin -- "Mommy, you know that Christmas isn't all about the presents huh?"
Gavin --"It is really ALL about Jesus' birthday!"
How sweet! Melted my heart to know that my baby is the one that reminded me of the real meaning of this season! I am so glad that we had that little "moment" together.. He made sure I understood and walked back to his little chair to watch t.v. It was so sweet and innocent of him... but took that to really make me stop and think about how caught up in things I had gotten and how I really needed to slow down and think about the meaning of Christmas!
Please take the time to do that! STOP and think about the birth of our Savior and what this season really means!
