There comes a day when we all will stop believing in Santa Claus. It’s the unfortunate part of having to grow up, I don’t remember exactly when I stopped believing but at some point I grew up. I have often said to my kids that they should enjoy being a kid for as long as possible.
Watching Jennifer and Austin get so excited when I brought home the Christmas tree this year and they both immediately started to dance around the house and get excited about decorating the tree. My mother generously donated all of her Christmas items that she has been collecting over the years, including more musical and dancing Santa’s that I can count.
It brought a warm smile to my face to see these guys dance around all afternoon, hitting every button on every Santa over and over again while they decorated the tree. Aside from putting the giant Santa on the top my five and three year old decorated the entire tree. It was so much fun to watch and reminded me of the magic of Christmas.
This year is going to magical.
