I read this quote and just smiled. "The best Christmas of all is the presence of a happy family all wrapped up with one another." I surely have felt that this Christmas season and we haven't even gotten to Christmas day. Our house last night was full of family and full of good times and giggles. Watching our two grandchildren interact with each other, watching our adult children just hanging out and talking about some of our past Christmases was so much fun. I was even scolded for allowing Morgan Kate to open a gift early. I laughed. I am the grandmother and I can do that :) :)
I want our grandchildren to know the real reason of the season. I want to tell them about the birth of Jesus. I also want to see the excitement in their eyes of "Santa" and the gifts he will bring. I want to soak up every minute with them. Enjoy time with everyone. We don't have everyone together yet but they are coming. In the meantime, the dishes can wait, the house can be cluttered....after all we are just enjoying being wrapped up together this holiday season. Loving each other. Talking to each other. Getting to know each other better and it doesn't get any better than that! Merry Christmas!
