I always feel like it is hard to truly get into the holiday spirit when lives are so consumed with the mundane day to day things that have to get done. Which is always so sad. My little empathetic middle child, Luke, came up to me on the evening of Christmas and began to cry. When I asked him what was wrong he said "Christmas is over and I want it to be Christmas again." We talked about all of the fun time we will have between now and next Christmas. He was still sad but thought it would be fun that next Christmas he would be in Kindergarten. Now... onto the gift part..
Does anyone else have children that create these elaborate lists, then you get your shopping done early, and then their lists change? No? Just me... okay.
When Luke was asked what his favorite gift was he said it was his Fingerling from Santa (thank you Facebook world for telling me what to get my children!) Aiden could not decide on a favorite gift and said everything was his favorite. Leila's favorite (I think) was "Moana Dog" a.k.a. Pua, the pig from Moana.
I cannot wait to see what this next year brings for us. I am going to put together a list of New Year's Resolutions and how we did on our resolutions from last year. But anyway, here are some of my favorite pictures from our Christmas holiday this year:
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas or whatever holiday you celebrate!
