A Good Kind Of Busy

AE92 Christmas be blessed
This time of year we are all so busy but for me & probably alot of others. It's the good kind of busy. You have so much to do,things to bake,gifts to buy,gifts to wrap & my favorite part...family to visit! I have all my shopping finished. Nothing wrapped yet but Matt & I do that on Christmas Eve night. We stay up have the night laughing & wrapping. It takes forever,we're so tired but we have fun. I love seeing all the gifts under the tree when er are all done. I always take pictures of it because I know bright & early the kids will be up & in just seconds those gifts are everywhere!!!! Nothing like seeing your childrens faces on Christmas morning huh?!?! Not to mention the real meaning of Christmas. The celebration of the birth of our wonderful God. I mean could there be a better day of the year? I need to thank God for all he has given me. He has blessed me beyond belief. I try every Christmas to explain the true meaning of this day to the kids. I think this year I'm going to start a new tradition. We won't have any time on Christmas day but Christmas Eve I think I'm going to make a birthday cake for Jesus. Have the kids blow out the candles,wish him a happy birthday & thank him for all they have. I'm really excited about doing this & I hope it helps them understand more about this special day=)
Well, like I said I'm busy busy! The kids & I are getting ready to go to my Grandma's to open their gift. We'll be going there Christmas day but she gets them an outfit every year that she wants them to wear Christmas day. We are celebrating at Matt's moms on Sunday because thats when everyone will be in. Matt's mom is so excited to have 4 of her 5 kids home for Christmas this year. His sister from Oklahoma can't be here. She's almost ready to have her baby girl in just weeks!! Christmas Eve my parents are coming over for us to exchange gifts. Then Christmas day we are going to both my grandma's. Shewww!!! I'm tired just typing about it. I hope everyone has a very very Merry Christmas!!! May God bless you all this New Year & know that as I count my many blessings I count each & every one of you♥

Wow! You guys are going to be having so much fun in the next few days! Your kids must be out of their minds excited!

Eve has asked a few times to make a cake for Jesus and another one for when the baby is born... I have a feeling we are going to be eating a lot of cake here shortly. :)

Have a great next few days, Courtney. I am so glad that you have a good family to enjoy and laugh with. I'll be thinking of you Christmas Eve as I wrap presents with Daniel :)
