"The Stockings were hung by the chimney with care"...

Can you believe it's almost Christmas?!! Goodness, this holiday season is just flying by! Luckily, I just wrapped up my last gift...hooray...and I have my boys' stocking and "Santa" gifts organized so I can just dump them in their stockings/lay them out by the tree and I'm D-O-N-E for Christmas morning. I have my Christmas morning casserole all ready to pop in the oven tomorrow morning and I just finished ironing clothes for tonight's Christmas Eve celebration. And the list goes on! :)

When you're a mom (and honestly, aren't moms the ones that make sure it all gets done??) there is a lot to do around this time of year. It's a whirlwind of shopping and wrapping and making and doing...and somewhere in the middle of all the chaos there are moments of remembrance...moments where the TRUE meaning of Christmas stares you in the face and beckons you to slow down and just reflect.

So, on that note, I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. Aren't we blessed that the Creator of the universe humbled himself to come to us as a helpless baby, came down to earth to grow up among us and to save us from our sins?!!

Merry Christmas to All, and To All a Good Night!!!

Nicely written, Gracie, and good job getting it all done! My list still has a few things yet to be crossed off....breakfast for one. ;)

Love you and can't wait to see you later! ;)
