Holiday parties, presents under the tree, Christmas lights all aglow and carols being sung. It is a spacial time of year. From the smile on your little one's faces to stolen kisses under the mistletoe if you are so lucky as to find mistletoe these days. I love celebrating the birth of my savior with my loved ones. I love wrapping presents with my mother and sister and taking my son out to see the Christmas lights around the neighborhood. I like the Christmas music on the radio and the hearing from people you only hear from once a year.
This time of year is full of magic that lets all of us see a world of possibilities rather than miseries. I may be bias as this is one of my favorite holidays and all my favorite parties take place around it as well. My birthday, Christmas Eve, and New Years to name but a few.
I do my shopping two weeks before hand to skip 'Some' of the rush and crowded shops and still it is nightmarish but how I love finding a gift that I know my love will fall for. I'd say I love the snow on the ground as well but where I live this time of year is rainy, cold and muddy. No I do not like the weather but the idea of how nice it would be if it did snow.
The cheek biter in the picture above is my little monster and this year he is asking for Transformers, Spiderman toys and anything at all fireman related and I am just tickled pink he understands whats going on this year enough to ask and sad too because he's getting so big so fast. I think that is the real reason for this nostalgic post along with the desire to wish all of you out there a very Merry Christmas and a Bless New Year
