Merry Christmas Loyal (and New) Readers –
I’m fortunate enough to be spending this beautiful holiday with my family.
Every Christmas morning my parents would go down the stairs first to see if my little sister and I had made the nice list. We stayed up stairs in our rooms until we heard the call, “I think he’s been here!” We’d rush down the stairs to see presents under the tree, but before ripping into them we’d stop at the Nativity.
My sister and I would put baby Jesus in the manger and sing Happy Birthday.
We may both be old enough to legally knock back some spiked egg nog, but we still sing Happy Birthday to Jesus every Christmas morning (and get the “I think he’s been here” holler).
To respect both my family time and the season, I will be disconnecting from the blog this week.
Thank you so much for reading this year and I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!
And here is a fun awkward family photo for your viewing pleasure.
And one of my favorite (non-traditional) Christmas songs!
