Christmas this year has definitely been quite different than last. Each passing year is full of changes! The picture above really captures that in Cohens size difference alone!! I used to feel like a week went by slow, but now with children, I swear each year is truly a reminder of how fast life goes!
Christmas is a great time to reflect on your year as a whole. It is also a great time to reflect on why we celebrate! Parenting a 3 year old and a one year old at this time of year, and trying to teach them that presents are not the reason we celebrate definitely has it challenges. Teaching our children the true meaning of Christmas being Jesus' birthday, and that Christmas should be about presence, not with a t! I love seeing the joy the morning brings on a child's face, but it's really the time spent together, and how loved we are, that should really take centre stage.
This year Grayson was (and I've heard) the best age for really engaging in the joy it brings!
I can't be more thankful though to have been surrounded at home with my family! I have everything I want, and that's what I love most about this time of year! How ever you guys celebrated or wherever you are in the world, I wish you all love and happiness! I hope you all had an amazing Christmas, and Happy New Year!!!
Thanks for stopping by!
