In years past, I've been very organized about Christmas. Just last year, in fact, I was done with all the Christmas shopping by the end of November and had the cards send out the first week of December. Unfortunately, It has not been one of those years. We've been so busy with life that the season has flown by. Luckily, we've made time to enjoy some of the festivities that go along with Christmas.
I was in charge of and participated in the musical Christmas program at church
We Bundled up the kids and took Leah along to see the lights at Temple Square in Salt Lake City.
We enjoyed Alfie's Christmas Recital, where he sang songs, danced and showed us how he learned to run away from strangers in karate.
And, of course, we took the babes to sit on Santa's lap. Alfie was a lot less nervous in comparison with last year when he would only repeat what Santa said to him (think Christmas Story).
So while there is still shopping to be done and cards to be sent, I think we've squeezed in a few good memories along the way. I'd like to say I'll have some inspiring post before Christmas, but let's be honest, I don't think I'll find the time.
Merry Christmas to you and yours.
