This time of year.

I love this time of year. Everything about it. I love finding that perfect gift for that special someone. I love spending extra time with my family and friends. I love the music. I love celebrating the birth of Jesus, my Lord and King. It seems like most people are happier this time of year too and more friendly. I love the snow, when we get it. For the first time I have all of my shopping done and most of them wrapped too. Last year was the first year we stayed home on Christmas day. We really enjoyed it so we decided that we are not going anywhere on Christmas day as long as we can. My parents stopped by last year, and I hope they are able to stop by again this year. Friends of ours are empty-nesters this year and so we have invited them over for Christmas dinner. I am so excited. I can't wait. I feel like a little girl again, waiting in anticipation for Christmas eve, so I can look out my window late at night to see if I see the red glow of Rudolph's nose headed to my house. I have so many special memories of this time of year maybe as the week goes on I will share some of them. My prayer is I am able to explain and show my children how Christmas isn't really about getting but about giving. So, I hope everyone has a GREAT Tuesday, and have fun getting ready for the birth of our Savior - Jesus Christ!
