Wow, I can’t believe we are days away from Christmas. 5 days to be exact. Crazy how time flies, the year has literally FLOWN by. In a way I’m not ready to let 2012 go, but then again, no time but the present to move on.
Christmas is always such a fun time of year. With this year being the busiest year of our lives we’ve played quite the socialites and been to nearly every party imaginable. (Ok, not really but it feels like.) 4 work Christmas parties, 3 friend Christmas parties, and a Sunday School party scheduled for after the first of the year! We barely meet ourselves coming and going and tonight is going to be a quiet night at home. The plan is to make chex mix and watch Christmas Vacation. We’ll see…these days nothing seems to go as planned.
We barely have any Christmas decor out, my tree is decorated and beautiful but that’s about the extent of it. In fact I’m ashamed to even say I still have a fall wreath on the front door. HA! Whoops, oh well nobody ever comes to see us. I feel like we haven’t really gotten to enjoy the holiday season at home like we did last year…but then again this year is so much better than last.
A year ago I was so sick from medicine I was on and became practically a vegetarian because of it…and was just all in all depressed that we didn’t have a baby yet. I’m ready to start those traditions with my household family. The dogs just do not get it! ;)
This year my dosage is smaller so I’m not sick and can handle to eat meat again. We still don’t have a baby, but I’ve been too busy to really think too much about it. Here’s what I do think about though…
Sunday in church standing and singing Christmas songs I kinda got teary eyed thinking how last year I just knew we’d have a baby of some sort for this year. My dream is to have a beautiful baby either dressed like this…
I LOVE Christmas plaid and green corduroy and anything monogrammed. *Side note* Kody does not like the little southern boy outfits, but he knows he’ll have to just live with it. Smart man.
So I get a little upset that I don’t get to hold a baby on my hip all dressed to the nines Christmas Eve, but it’s ok. Our time will come. We’ll be in serious trouble whenever the time comes, I won’t be able to hold back from buying adorable clothes like this!!
I’ll continue to dream this Christmas season and know that the season is filled with HOPE. We HOPE 2013 will bring us something special. I also hope for continued contentment. I feel like I’ve been patient and continue to remain content, regardless of how you read this post. My biggest peeve is when people have healthy happy babies and continuously talk about having more so they can ‘get’ a girl/boy…or planning baby # whatever when they leave the hospital. My prayer for those people is to KNOW you’re blessed and to be content.
What are you HOPING for this next year?
