So as I was making cookies
with the kids yesterday I was thinking about that question and realized that those were some of my favorites right then- Making a huge mess out of the kitchen, getting all covered in sticky frosting and sprinkles, seeing my kids laughing at all their creations
And seeing the wonder on their faces at church last night when we turned down the lights, lit the candles and sang "Silent Night"
Because the most important thing during Christmas is not the things we get, but the people we share the time with. And remembering the reason we even have a Christmas.
The sweet baby child that was born more than 2,000 years ago today.
So from my family to yours:
And a Very Happy and Prosperous New Year!
