  1. I would love to be able to go back to my parents this Christmas. Every year, they come out and see us, but this year, I would like to be able to take my three boys, and show up to surprise them, especially as it will be my mom's 65 a few days later.

  6. I was let go from my job 4 days after Christmas in 2010. So this year, I will be at home with my family, celebrating both our daughters December birthday's & watching our annual favourite Christmas movies by the fire with hot apple cider. Of course, as usual, I will have my camera with me, taking pictures to remember for a lifetime :)

  8. I just love being around my family. It's only at this that time of the year that we are all in one place. We swap stories, gossip, take pictures, and catch up on what everybody is doing. It's my favorite part of the entire year!

  10. Christmas is my favorite holiday! I love having my kids help decorate the tree, and one thing we love to do is drive around our neighborhood looking at all the lights.

  11. I am looking forward to watching my children's faces as we share the magic of the Christmas Spirit! I hope I can capture it with the camera, if not, the mess will suffice! LOL! Christmas is my favorite holiday, the spirit of giving is the best, but the awe on my children's faces is priceless, and so worth all the countless hour Santa works to put all the toys together before they wake!

    This Holiday season I'm looking forward to my 1 year old being able to open her own gifts and actually play with them and also my expanding baby bump...It should be quite large by Christmas. I can't wait to see how the little one reacts to mommy not being able to lift her up as much, but she already loves to give me belly kisses, so hopefully by the holidays she won't be tired of giving them :D

    I look forward to so much at Christmas...I'm a complete Christmas geek! Mostly, I look forward to making memories with my little guy - any and all memories. We adopted him last year, after being his foster parents for 4 years. His first Christmas with us was sad because he had no expectations (compared to all of my grand visions). But every year since then he's seen and lived the joy, and I love seeing it through his eyes!
