Happy Holidays!

I can't believe it is Christmas Eve! I also can't remember the last time I was this excited about Christmas morning. This is the first year my daughter has shown an interest and understanding in Santa Claus and the whole presents thing. She does know that it is Baby Jesus' birthday, but as a 2 year old, she is definitely more concerned about the presents! I wrapped all but one of her gifts Friday night and her stocking stuffers are ready to go in her stocking. The only thing not wrapped is her big present she has been asking Santa for - a Dora Doll House. I hadn't planned on wrapping it, I was just going to set it up and put a big bow on it. But, she has never seen the dollhouse out of the box, she has only seen the box in the stores, so I thought that it would be better to let her unwrap the box and see that it is exactly what she has been asking for. I know, a bit silly, but I really want her to know that Santa came through on his promise to get her exactly that if she was a good girl. Because she has been a good girl. Sure, she can be a pain in the you-know-what at times, but isn't that the case with all 2 year olds? At the end of every day I have to admit that she was more good than 'bad' and that I would not trade my time with her for anything.

Now we just have to get working on what she wants for Christmas next year - a baby brother or sister!

Happy Holidays everyone! Enjoy your time with your family and/or friends and make some wonderful memories together......
