Why does time seem to pass faster each year? How do kids get so much taller? When did I become so much older?
With the beginning of a new year, I am excited at the possibilities. I feel optimistic. Maybe that's just the residue of all the Christmas cheer... Speaking of Christmas cheer, here are a few highlights of this year's festivities. It was a year of the usual... spending time with the ones we love, presents, good food (and a "good" 5 pounds or so), pictures, cousins, puppet shows, Christmas jammies, games, and laughs. It really was a good time.
This is why I make this blog. I want to remember all the little things.. Things like, my mom keeping a can of febreez by her side while we played cards because she had to sit by Taylor. :) And the little girls watching "A White Christmas" with Nana one quiet afternoon. I want to remember Lexi watching Dora from her new Dora tent. I hope I will always remember the Santa's helpers (mom and dad) who came over Christmas Eve and helped put together a kitchen and doll house until 2 in the morning. I want to remember Ruby running around with the characters from Toy Story yelling "Run from uncle Taylor!" I will never forget seeing Santa in Crampa's backyard, with the girls screaming and jumping up and down on the bed. It really was a wonderful Christmas season. It was over in a flash, but I am glad for the memories that last a lot longer.
