This year we did not go all out with decorating since well you know, we have a TODDLER who gets into EVERTHING!
Christmas is my favorite holiday. Not because you get presents but because you give. I have been teaching my boys since they were born that giving is important. We adopt a family or a child, donate to toys for tots and recently started to donate all of our outgrown coats. I am very proud to say that Dominic has taken to this with delight. He loves to help out others and be giving. Christmas is also a favorite of mine because of the lights and decorations. Seriously, who does not like to drive around all the neighborhoods and look at everyone's lights? I love the shine, glimmer and feeling that you get at this time of year.
Our decorations are up and my kidlets are getting excited. Okay, I will admit, I am getting excited. We are almost done shopping and are well on our way to being fully ready!
