Wanted: Christmas Spirit

Last night we attended Chris' work holiday party. It was a nice night out and a lovely party (apart from the magician). Although I enjoyed myself at the event, I just couldn't wrap my head around the fact that Christmas is coming in 20 odd short days.

While I want to make this first Christmas with Milo a special and memorable one, I also realize that he isn't going to know what is going on. Chris and I bought him only one gift, along with some stocking stuffers. We'll go see the lights at the Zoo and we're still debating a trip to see Santa.

Really, I guess I want this Christmas to be a remarkable one for me. If that is going to happen, I better lighten up, accept that the holiday season is once again upon on, and try to enjoy every moment.

Maybe baking cookies will help.

From one Mom who completely burned herself out last year trying to amethe "first" Christmas memorable for all....

Definitely take your own advice and relax!!!! By Christmas night last year I was fried and in tears, for no good reason. This year, I vowed to step back, enjoy it,and remember what it's all about (awesome husband, great fam and friends, healthy kid - even though mine doesn't sleep either)!!!

And, if you decide to do Santa, let me know how it goes......Little L LOVES Santa in real life, not so much!!!!
