Christmastime

069

In some ways, I’ve looked forward to a December like this December for a few years.  I wanted to enjoy the holiday to the fullest extent, starting from the day that the local station started playing Christmas music.  In October.  Christmas day is great, but nothing beats the build-up.  The months-long preparation, the decorations in Target, the random acts of kindness, the holiday cheer, family time, carols, ugly Christmas sweaters, parties.  Really, I could go on and on.  I just love it!

Oh, and did I mention that I turned the big 3-0?  As in THIRTY? As in I am no longer a 20-something?

It’s true.  And I’m so okay with it!  Twenty-nine ended up being a pretty crazy-amazing year, and I believe that God has a few things up his sleeve for 2013, too.  I can’t imagine what, but I’m going to keep the faith.

Until next time, here’s a few pics of my boy over the past two days.  And, no, he hasn’t been out of his jammies since Christmas Eve at 8:30pm.

Happy Belated 30th Birthday!! 30 has been a great year for me so far- I know it will for you too. I am already so sad it's over- I feel like we have so much anticipation and then it's suddenly its over. Now I can start my countdown to summer.
Becks looks like he had a great Christmas!
