Pre-Christmas 2011

As you have all read, I have preached that the season of Christmas is not just about receiving.  The girls have listened and have enjoyed making traditions and giving back to others to learn what it is all about to truly celebrate Christmas.

I would be lying if I didn’t say how fun it is to watch the girls excitement as the holiday unfolds before us.  We are lucky.  The girls have presents under the tree and we have thoroughly enjoyed picking out a few things that we know will make them smile.  With a 5 year old and a 2 year old this year is going to top the excitement charts. It is sure to be an exciting few days watching our girls tear into gifts and squeal with delight when they see what is waiting for them under shiny paper and inside cardboard boxes.

I cannot wait.

She opened one gift this weekend and check out that smile!

Kentucky comes home in 6 days.  That means Mallory will be able to wrap her arms around her cousins that she has been missing so much lately.  She told me yesterday that the first thing she is going to do is “run and give them the biggest hug ever!” 
If this moment plays out in front of me like I am envisioning, I am going to be a mess of tears.  We are going to drink in as much family and fun as we can over the holiday weekend that is to come…
