Christmas Feels Over Already!

Why does it feel like Christmas is pretty much over? It's not, but it feels like it. I LOVE Christmas time and I can't wait for Emily to open her presents yet I CAN wait at the same time. This is just the best time of the year and I can't help just being so excited every day. My kids are the cutest things out there! I love being a mom. It is tiring, it is hard some times and some days my Emily knows just how to push my buttons and the baby won't let me put her down, but I love it at the same time. Like yesterday was just a perfect day. I was able to get all my house work done early that day and then my house was nice and clean and we could just spend the rest of the time playing and enjoying each other. We tickled and wrestled and laughed and played Christmas music. This is where true happiness comes from. We are not any richer than yesterday, in fact probably a little more poor. Haha! We are still in the same situation as before, but there are the times when I realize just how truly blessed and happy my life is. Especially during this Season I am grateful for all that I do have that so many people don't. If I really could remember that more often I would complain a lot less these days. Life really is beautiful. I shouldn't ask or even want for more than I already have. I have the best husband in the world who loves, supports and serves me. He works hard at his job and school and loves his kids and plays with them all the time. I am happy everyday that I married him. My girls are so precious and we do want more someday, in a couple more years, but if we were never blessed with more we would feel so blessed and happy to have our two sweethearts. Emily is such a good kid! Even when other kids want to pick on her, most of the time she does not retaliate. She is so good and loving to her sister. Lindsey is just all around sweetness. She is so cuddly and soft. What a fun baby to have around! I now know what it feels like to experience joy and bliss.
