The other day we had our first real snow, got out and played in it, made a baby snowman, sled, and enjoyed the winter wonderland, we also baked cookies together and watched Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer for the upteenth time.
It was perfect, really it was. One of those days you wish could go on and on. One of those days that makes all the other exhausting, demanding, less than fun days worth it all. I have the honor and privelage of being home with my boys full time. I have the joy of being the one who plays in the snow with them, watches Christmas movies with them, and snuggles up with them.
I’m also blessed with a husband who is a great cook/baker, and isn’t afraid to get in the kitchen, get his hands dirty, and enjoy the cookie baking experience with us.
I’ve also got to experience the fun of your child wanting to brush your hair to make you perrrty, do up your makeup, and all that fun stuff. I thought I’d not get to experience that since I have boys, but my oldest has gotten into making his Mommy perrty the past couple of days, and it’s such fun!
This time of year is a special one for me. I’ve always enjoyed this time of year and being able to celebrate family, traditions, and Christ. What about you? Have you been enjoying your family and traditions even more than usual?
