Christmas Eve

I am so excited, our third Christmas as a family! I went a little nuts with the shopping this year. However, it really makes me happy to watch Charla open her presents Christmas morning.

When I was a kid, my brother and I would enter the living room to find two piles of presents under the tree. One for me and one for him. There would be wrapping paper everywhere when we were finally done opening them all. Breakfast was all but forgotten as we played with our new toys. Most of the time, I got exactly what I wanted plus more. This is what I want Charla to experience. This is what I want Charla to be able to pass down to her own children.

Tomorrow morning, after the gifts have been opened and played with, we will drive over to my parent’s house. There, the entire family will come together to enjoy the day. I plan to soak up as much of it as I can. There’s  no guarantee what tomorrow will bring, so enjoy the here and now. Memories, those are my gifts for the holidays now that I’m older. And I plan on getting a lot of gifts this year!
