Well, we survived Christmas again this year. I know that sounds so dreadful and I really shouldn’t use that phrase because we actually had a wonderful Christmas ~ just different.
I always wait till the last minute to do my shopping. I finished earlier than usual this year, but still had to rush around.
Briar and Brad are also at the ages where the “magic” of Christmas starts to go away. I can’t use “You better be good, Santa is watching” anymore. They don’t believe me. No more leaving cookies for Santa, no visiting Santa… They don’t even want to watch the Christmas movies we normally enjoy. They don’t want anything with Santa at all.
I told them Santa would be disappointed when he stopped by our house, and they would be lucky if he left them any presents.
Of course the excitement of receiving presents never goes away. I was pleased that they enjoyed spending time with our family and friends as well as remembering Jesus’ birth. After all, that is what it is all about.
So, even though Christmas was different for us, the boys have deemed it the best Christmas ever.
