Santa Claus is Coming to Town

This will be my son's 3rd Christmas and my daughter's 1st. These really are the years where the foundation of wonderful memories are built. I am excited about the season for, what a lot would say, superficial and shallow reasons. Allow me to list them down.

1. I love Christmas because of the lights and the songs and the beautiful decor. No matter how sad I am, looking at such festive designs always lightens my mood. This is given even more emphasis now with the 2 kiddies looking on with me. Two Christmases ago was stressful because we had just moved into our house. Because of that we weren't able to set up a tree or even lights. Last Christmas, we made up for it. I am determined to make this Christmas even better.
2. I love presents. This time, I am looking forward to seeing the joy in my son's face when he opens his gifts.
3. I love the food!! There really is no need to further expound on this point.
4. Finally, I love the general feeling of love and laughter and forgiveness that is present during the Christmas season.

I hope my reasons for loving Christmas don't change and instead just get longer and better.

And the Baby is Born

(this image comes from here)

I am now a mother of 2 adorable children- officially. So many thoughts are running through my mind. Her coming was an unexpected blessing. And I am overwhelmed. Will I be able to successfully raise 2 beautiful kids? 1 is already a challenge. And in today's fast-paced, price- ricing scene- the challenge is an ever-rising mountain. Thankfully I have a supportive husband who deals with my moods, takes my word for it when it comes to mommy tasks (well, most of the time anyway), and just tries to still surround me with humor and light. I am looking forward to my son's and daughter's many tomorrows.
