Christmas markers time passing for me....
Well Christmas came and went too fast as it always does. The kids had a blast! We just finished up the third Christmas celebration. We have been at my mom and dad's house since Christmas day(in the afternoon). Z went back to our house on Sunday and I have been spending time here ever since, as is the tradition goes.The kids enjoy time with their Gannie and Papa! This year was great! The older three kids really get it and the excitement upon Santa arriving is AMAZING to watch. Baby Q gets excited and is all smiles because he feeds of them. So, that made this years Christmas so heart-warming and memorable. I know that time is slipping away each day and there will come a time that none of them will believe in "The big Man in red". I dread that day. Because of that, this year I immersed myself in all the season had to offer. We watched every Christmas kids movie made(I think), made Christmas cookies, saw him several times, visited live reindeer, went on the polar express and drank hot chocolate, went sledding, made snowmen(and one snow girl), and even had Santa send them an e-mail. He called the house several time(thanks guys) and wrote him several letters. I already miss the anticipation.... but at least I enjoyed it! I hope you all had a magical Christmas and dive into the new year with reckless abandon as these precious years are so few numbered! Happy New year from my crazy family to yours! Enjoy the pictures of memory lane!!!!
