School is out. The plays and concerts are done. The class gifts have been given, the parties attended. Now all that is left to do is sit back and enjoy the magic of the Christmas season. Well, that, and wrap ALL of the gifts, clean the whole house and make all the goodies for the Christmas I am suddenly hosting, do laundry, go grocery shopping. You know. The usual. Oh, and Tommy has come down with some sort of stomach virus, so there is that too. But OTHER than that. Christmas magic.
Every time life gets a little too hectic and a little too busy there is some reminder of what is really important. This time it came as we were watching old home videos of the kids when they were babies. It drove home just how fast this time goes by and just how precious these little kiddos really are. So no matter how crazy this Christmas may be, I will be enjoying the magic of it all. I hope you do too.
