Merry Christmas Eve

12.24.2010

Christmas eve, you  always seems to sneak up on me...

...but presents are wrapped...

...the stockings are hung by the chimney with care...

...ornaments glitter in the fire light...

...and some of us are already enjoying early Christmas presents..


I love Christmas eve. The older I get, the more I appreciate it. Sure, it used to be all about presents {and maybe I still like that part...}, but now I look forward to spending time with my hubby {and dogs}, Christmas service tonight, spending time with family and friends. Yes, I realize how cheesy I sound, but there is really no other way to say it. Christmas is so much more than what's under the tree or isn't. I overheard more than 1 person this week saying that they were ready for Christmas to be over because of all the presents they had to buy. Are you kidding me? This is an awesome season and I am so sad that it's going to be over in just a matter of days! If present buying ruins it, then stop. Don't buy anything. Bake cookies to give to people. Invite friends into your home for dinner. Take the time to realize what it's all about. I assure you, I will remember the people I spent this holiday season with more than what I received as a gift in the years to come.

So with that, I hope that each and everyone of you have an amazing Christmas eve and day tomorrow. Give hugs and kisses and 'I love you's'. It's worth way more.


p.s. I'm still holding out for snow tomorrow though no one seems to know what's going to happen.
