Project 52:47 {Christmas}

thankful for...

I love this holiday.

Like, far and away above the others. I love the music, the decorations, the traditions, the festivities, the gift-giving and the feeling of love and community that seems to permeate this time of year.

I have been so excited to include Evie in more than just opening presents this year. To really talk to her about Christmas and why we celebrate. To read about the birth of Jesus over and over and over. I've already started singing Silent Night and Jingle Bells to her, hoping she'll catch on soon and this weekend we'll be breaking out the Advent Calendar.

I love this holiday. 

I'm so thankful for all the happiness and festiveness that it brings, but more importantly- most importantly- I am thankful to celebrate the birth of Jesus. That a sweet little baby was born on a cold night long ago, in a miraculous way. Sent to walk among men and die so that we might live forever.
