You are a mere two weeks away and I find myself a bit giddy thinking about all of the possibilities. I am so excited to capture every moment with my kids in the days leading up to Christmas.
I made a promise to them that this year I will enjoy our time. I vowed to slow down and listen more. I expressed my excitement about reading Christmas books, eating cookies and sleeping under the tree.
I declared to thousands of people that "this year will be different, this year we will have Christmas."
I really, truly, meant every word of it. I promise. I believed it whole heartedly until it hit me.
Holy crap! Christmas vacation is 10 days longer than Thanksgiving break. If it is going to be anything like Thanksgiving, we are going to have to establish some ground rules.
