Magical Moments in December

 

Is there a month more magical than December?  I try to make BIG things out of little things all year long.  But, nothing I do from January through November can top what happens naturally once December 1st hits.

We haven’t put the village up the last couple of years… the kids were completely enamored with it.

Now truth be told even before I had children December 1st would hit and it would have this effect on me… Mike will tell you our first Christmas I had him up at 4:45 AM on Christmas morning.  It makes perfect sense that my engagement ring was strategically placed on an ornament. Kathryn even arrived 5 weeks early making her the best Christmas present ever!  See… lots of magic happens in December.

December is full of family traditions.  Making Christmas Cards is one of my favorites… although I am just not sure they are going to make it in time this year.
