Christmas is OVER

I remember growing up as a child how excited I got for Christmas and how it was always a bit of reality shock when Christmas was over.  now it seems to be the opposite, I am stressed out leading up to Christmas and always a bit relieved when it is over.  I started thinking about that this weekend and realized that I really enjoy the way that michael and I celebrate Christmas with the kids.  santa does not come to our house and we only buy gifts that can fit in the stockings.  which means no presents to wrap, no three-page long wish lists for santa, and there are only a few gifts to get and receive.  sometimes I think that our kids may be missing out by not having the big Christmas and santa, but they get plenty of gifts and they don’t seem to be traumatized by not getting gifts from santa.

    we don't do Santa either…it's amazing what a hot topic that is though…you can really make people fume by telling them you don't do santa with your kids. Crazy! Happy Birthday Jesus in our house! Wish we could have seen you guys more…the boys are really growing up! all of em are! Merry Christmas and enjoy the nice lull afterward 😉 luv, holly
