It's Christmas morning. The house is QUIET. I'm up before even the dog, enjoying a peaceful coffee beside the tree and the Christmas explosion underneath it. Life is good.
Gearing up for Christmas has been oh-so-fun this year. The kidlet is finally starting to get this whole Santa=presents=fun thing. She did draw the line at actually wanting to see him in person, but in a storybook or on TV she's all over it. Now the whole present thing has resulted in at least an extra dozen time outs in the last week, as she thinks anything wrapped is hers. Pretty tough prying a present out of your toddler's hands, especially when she wants to take it to bed : )
I can't actually believe another year's end is here. Wow. "They" aren't kidding when they say time moves fast when you have kids. Like, super fast. But at the same time she's still our little baby girl. Even though there are times when she seems much older and more mature, there are still plenty of reminders that she's only wee. Like when she sings 'Frosty', with this line: "...and two eyes made out of toadddd..."
I'll do a more worthy update of where she's at as we come to the end of 2010, but today all I'm really here to do is to say, "Merry Christmas!" to those who celebrate the holiday. Hope life is good!
