I haven’t watched “It’s a Wonderful Life” yet this holiday season–and that is just not right. I went to Wal-Mart today to see if I could snag a copy–but the only version I could find was the fancy-schmancy, extended, golden- type version that would cost me an arm and a leg–it even had a bell that went with the dvd–cute, but no thanks.
so, this Christmas we will go without viewing my all-time favorite Christmas movie….but that doesn’t mean this Christmas will be any-the-less wonderful…
all sickness has left our home..and we are pumping up the Christmas spirit like a reebok.
I so love her face.
You know you’re high on Christmas when you go to bed with “Silver Bells…” playing in you head and wake up to “Ra Pum Pum Pum..”
I keep having visions of playing Santa Claus on Christmas Eve….I can see it now–Tony and I tip-toeing the presents with cheesy smiles into the living room—taking a step back, arm-in-arm, feeling the anticipation grow in our hearts–for that magical moment when she first beholds the tree in all it’s glory Christmas morning.
It’s gonna be good.
this is the last Christmas where it is just us and her….next year I will be cuddling her precious new little sister in my arms in front of our tree. Everything is about to change again…not just for us this time, but for her as well. I know it will be good…she’s gonna adore her baby sister….and enjoy not being the only little in our home anymore.
But, I also know she will never again be so much the center of our world as she is right now….so this last solo Christmas with our little Anna Lynn…we are gonna drink her in–and inhale these last precious family events that are just with her…our beautiful first born.
Merry Christmas Eve Eve friends..
We’ll talk soon,
