I love Christmas. From the perfect number of lights on the tree, the hand decorated cookies, driving around looking for the house with the most lights - it is all fun. I love how traditions that we started as a young family 30 years ago have shifted to my children. We always got new jammies for the kids to open on Christmas Eve. It's been fun to watch my three children do the same for their children. We also purchased a new ornament each year while the kids were growing up. They have these ornaments on their trees now, and do the same for their kiddos. It is hard to not all be together on Christmas each year, but I love waking up on Christmas morning knowing that some of these traditions carry on.
May you have a blessed Christmas and remember the true reason we celebrate is because of the Savior that was born that night.
