Christmas Eve Thoughts

As Jeremy so helpfully pointed out a couple of nights ago, I haven't done all that well with my promise to get back to regular blogging this month.  Like most everyone, we have been busy, busy, busy with holiday preparations and activities.

We accomplished many of the things on the Holiday Bucket List this year, but as usual, there just aren't enough hours in the day to do it all.  I think that's the theme of Christmas this year:  We don't have to do it all.

As I sit here on Christmas Eve afternoon, in my warm house with the tree lights glowing, my children playing with gifts from this morning's celebration, thinking of all the joy that is yet to come over the next two days, I can't help but feel that we already have all we could ever need.  Why worry about that one last gift I meant to buy or that dessert I intended to finally make this year? 

Here's to a fabulous Christmas full of family, friends, food, and the celebration of our Savior's birth.  Indeed, we do have it all.

From our family to yours, we wish you a very Merry Christmas!

    Merry Christmas!

  2. It's so easy this time of year to run and run and run...it's all good and fun...but we need to remember to step back and enjoy the trees amid the forest.

    Beautiful post, Deanna!

    Hope you had a magical Christmas with your amazing girls! :) :)
