As of this hour, Christmas is just 2 weeks away. To you three, my dearly loved children, I know this still seems like an eternity of waiting. To my amazing husband, yes, it really is only 2 weeks away…hint, hint.
The next few days, you will see me doing many activities in and around our nicely decorated home. I will be baking several dozen Christmas cookies for teachers gifts, cookie exchanges, neighbors and friends. You may not eat these finished products. You may not lick the mixer, the bowl or the drops that may have splattered into the counter tops. Yes, I love you too. But seriously, no.
I will be making a Christmas Eve and Christmas Day meal list. Just because you never had this dish prepared before does not mean it isn’t worth trying. Can you imagine if your birthday was celebrated the same exact way every year? I think Jesus us perfectly content with us changing things up a bit.
And to my kids, I purchased two stickings for mommy and daddy this year. We decided we have been really good and Santa should share a bit of love with us in this way this Christmas too. Do not move our stockings. They make me smile. Yes, I love you too. Don’t move mommy’s stockings.
The reason I prepare these things is so that we can welcome Jesus into our traditions and into our home each year. I get so excited when I think of what God is doing in each of your lives. I love you and I can’t wait to celebrate Jesus’ birthday as a family in a few short weeks.
But seriously, no more climbing the Christmas Tree. You have been warned.
Just consider this as my 2 week notice.
