Finding the Christmas Joy — 3 Comments

  1. Looks like you had a great time picking out your Christmas Tree. We have never had a real tree, even when growing up. It can be hard to find your own traditions as a family. Some things we want the same and some things we want different – making those choices is always hard for us. We will have Christmas as just the 5 of us (me, husband, and 3 kids) this year for the first time in 9 years – since my daughter was born. We hardly know what to do, but we are figuring it out year by year what Christmas looks like for us – and it is less and less like mom’s each year, but it is ours and you are right you are building precious memories with your kids and think all mamas are guilty of grumbling at least some of the time 🙂 Merry Christmas.

  2. oh girl – I was TOTALLY grumbling the other night. It was my bright idea to go out and look at all the lights – and then I was cranky because no one was getting ready, and where were all the mittens/hats, and hello??! The camera?


    We rebounded and it was nice, but I was so aware that the kids were picking up on my cranky mood. Sigh.

    It’s a great tree 🙂

  3. Oh, I get this completely. How many times have I grumbled this season….and for what?
    You’re right. Christmas is coming. I can feel it, too. And I’m striving to be ready….
    My Christmas cards aren’t done. I didn’t get as much baked as I had hoped. But I’ll be ready to celebrate the reason behind all the drama. I will.

    And I love your tree….. 😉
