'Tis the Season

Tis the season for watching the snow fall in your pjs,

for kid's vanilla steamers with a straw,

for sleepy snuggles and warm hats.

Tis the season for looking back on blessings from years before.

Tis the season for overindulging,

for sweet lil' bald spots

and for busy, messy houses.

Tis the season to read by the fire side,

or play under the tree.

Tis the season for making memories and starting new traditions.

This has been a busy holiday season for us this year. Even during the business, I think we've done a better job this year than ever before on staying true to the real meaning for the season, thanks to our sweet two year old and her love for the story of baby Jesus. I'm so thankful for her active mind that's so willing and eager to learn. 

We've had a busy month, our calendar is full but so are our hearts.

I loved this post. So, so sweet. I'd love to hear more about how you started introducing her to Jesus. There's a lot of hype for Christmas (the elf, santa, etc.) and I need to start thinking about how we want to approach it.
