It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… everywhere you look! And this year for the first time in a long time I’m actually getting into the spirit of the season. For the better part of the most recent years I had either been too busy, too tired, or too Chritmased-out to actually enjoy the holiday, and every December 25th came and went without really feeling like a major occasion. Este año, though, all the happy faces, the festive lights and colors, have proved to win me over.
¿Qué les puedo decir? I’m a sucker for wide-eyed children and the magic of Navidad.
In fact, this weekend we spent some time with familia doing a lot of Christmas-type stuff. I’m especially feeling all fuzzy inside about the Santa and Mrs. Claus picture below. The little town square where we had the foto taken was all picturesque with the charm of small town America and hanging lights across antique-lloking buildings. It was pretty cool!
This Sunday was also my mother’s birthday. Having my siblings, nieces and nephews, all under one roof celebrating the occasion just made me even more excited for Christmas Eve! Now if I can just figure out how to get the Christmas shopping done without running into crowds, that would be a Christmas miracle 🙂
