Merry Christmas and I love you~

It’s dark.

Christmas morning technically.

But eve, really.

We’ve shopped, partied, wrapped, taped, stuffed and cleaned to exhaustion.

Our only little one is theboy and yet we still find ourselves at this hour of the night finishing

the tasks required…

not sleeping

not watching a good movie

not relaxing.

I think, perhaps, life and Christmas is supposed to be a little chaotic.

It’s part of the Christmas rule.

Then the kids..no matter their age…wake you up and force you to come downstairs to the tree at a ridiculously early hour to open presents.

Enjoy this time.  This might be the one thing you miss when they move out.

Run on…and have a beautiful day

    Merry Christmas, I agree. I miss Harley being little. Christmas Eve and Christmas morning was full of magic, excitement and joy.

    Might be hours before my son gets up.

    Enjoy the day with your family!!

      I really don’t know why we love it so much! It’s a human torture but it’s so darn fun. My son, he’s seventeen and he stood in my doorway this morning until I got up. Dude. I’m getting up. I swear. I went to bed like…four hours ago. Give me a break. 🙂
