We have fresh white snow, we have been enjoying all of the holiday activities, and the magic of Christmas is definitely present at our house. I absolutely love this time of year and sharing it with my kids is definitely at the top of my list of all time favorite things.
Seeing their excitement for the first snow this year was like how many things are with them. You have to stop and remember to enjoy the little things. Live in the present and enjoy what you have. All of the these things I need to remind myself of constantly and they do this for me so easily. I get a little sad when holidays are over with them because I see them growing up before my eyes but this season I have tried to soak in every little thing and not get ahead of myself. One of the best moments came today when my son gave me a present he had wrapped in a box himself and it was piece of paper with him and me drawn on it and the words "love you". That was it...that is all I needed for Christmas.
I love how these photos represent the magic of Christmas, childhood and enjoying the little things in this life that goes by WAY too fast.
