I guess it is time to start getting back into a routine. I enjoy the Christmas season so much and all of the special events that go along with it, I do feel a little let down when it is all over. I saw a quote earlier this month that said something about making Christmas a magical time so that the magic can last all year. With E getting older, I really enjoyed our magical moments with Santa, our advent calendar and corresponding bible readings, and doing simple things like baking together and wrapping gifts.
I am looking forward to cleaning up our decorations and organizing our gifts. I have had my fill of cookies, egg nog, and Irish coffees (at least for now). The magic that we created this month will sustain us throughout the long winter.
Tomorrow I'll do a recap with some photos of our Christmas celebrations.
