It’s Dec. 17th. 8 days until Christmas. Yesterday in our house we barely set up the tree. We hung the stockings just in time. And yet-Yesterday I watched my son hang his first ornament on that same tree he helped pick out and tonight he pointed to the dogs on those stockings. Yesterday we went to Disneyalnd– 8 DAYS BEFORE CHRISTMAS! And yet, Austin got to silly dance to some big band and we all got photos in front of the snowy castle, the light up christmas twice and even Mickey Mouse!
Christmas came quick (and early but late) this year. So instead of taking millions of photos and getting sucked in, I decided that “making memories” is more important.
So as the season brings the year to a close, think about the things that matter. I know I don’t want to miss my son dancing and jumping to music, to giggling or getting excited about Mickey coming, or thinking starry-eyed thoughts while we smile for that tradtional photo in front of a glowing sparkly castle.
