Christmas Season in full swing!

Our family is in full swing Christmas mode. The cards are on their way to the mail, the trees, lights and wreaths are hung (mostly), the parties are starting, and the food has been bountiful! But, if Im being honest, Im kinda not that into it. Sigh.

I said it.

I know Im not the only one out there who feels this way. This year has come and gone so quickly. When I sit and think about it... its kinda frightning! I have been pregnant, had a baby, that baby is now 7 1/2 months old and crawling, had a 2nd bday party, potty trained a toddler, gone on one close-to-home vacation, 2 ER visits, started working again (just a little), another dance season started, and now its December and Im supposed to be ready for all that comes....


I do so much love this holiday. But I wish I could slow down to celebrate the real reason for the season. I want to sit down and talk to my girls about Jesus' birth. How lucky were are that we have a home and a place to stay warm. While Jesus was born in a stable. Tell them how we give gifts to people to show them the love that came with the birth of Christ.

I will find that time. But for now Im just gonna try to take a big deep breath and cherish the moments I can.

Yesterday we started a new small group. I am so excited to be back into a group of fun, young Christians. Our small group had been such a big part of my growth as a young adult. I will miss them, but this new clan will surely be just as important at this time in our lives.
