The Christmas season this year was slightly hectic. But also, it was filled with memories. Some memories were captured with my camera, but many were captured with my heart. They couldn't have been photographed.
I made delicious sugar cookies and incredible paper snowflakes. I inhaled the chilly air and let snow fall in my hair. I put Christmas lights and ornaments on our tree. Received anonymous gifts on our doorstep. Quoted Buddy the Elf quite frequently. I watched holiday movies with my family. And I ate WAY too many chocolates. I sent a letter that I had already written but procrastinated sending in the mail. I knitted a hat that I gave as a present. Witnessed an elf grilling hamburgers. (yes, I really did) I got a long awaited journal. I devoured one too many cookies and treats but never regretted it. Stayed up until 4 AM two nights in a row. Ding-dong-ditched someone's house and left a baggie of scrumptious goods. I took as many pictures as I could, but not as many as I should have. I gazed at Christmas lights in the dark.
Christmas is beautiful. And I'm thankful for the birth of Jesus Christ.
How was your Christmas, darlings?
