The Spirit

As I talked about on Wednesday, a couple of things have been weighing me down and messing with my Christmas mojo....
Now Christmas hasn't always been an easy time for me, regardless. I have two sets of parents to make sure that I spend equal time with, buying gifts always makes me anxious that the person won't like what I bought them, and addressing Christmas cards is the bane of my existence (pretty trivial issues, but they make they can make the holidays a little less fun).....

But as luck would have it, I married Mr. Christmas....My husband started talking about buying Christmas presents in September, not only because it was helpful financially, but because he honestly cannot contain himself....LOL. 
He even loves wrapping and doing the majority of the decorating....I am so blessed.  I have said before that I don't agree with the "he completes me" notion, but it does seem that where I lack, he shines.  Christmas is most definitely one of those times.

His enthusiasm is so infectious that you can't help get caught up in it.  It makes me smile just to think about it! 
And now that we have a little one, it just that much more fun.

This would be Maggie attempting to put her stocking on as a sock....LOL
Having these two in my life makes me so thankful everyday and they make the holidays wondrous. 
I couldn't love them any more.....

Hope you're having a great day!!!

What a sweet post. :) I love how your husband is the one that gets all excited about decorating for Christmas.

It's times like these that really make us appreciate all the wonderful things we have in life and to hopefully not dwell on the things that we 'don't' have {yet}. Thinking of you, Sarah!!
