It's almost Christmas

Ok, it's almost Christmas. I love Christmas. It's my favorite time of the year. I guess my song should be "It's the Most Wonderful Time Of The Year" Cause that's how I view it. I've always been waiting for that Christmas when I can share it with my own children (or child I guess right now). And it's finally here. Scott keeps reminding me that it doesn't always have to be just like in my imagination and not to get my hopes up too much for that stereotypical storybook Christmas. He's right because things aren't perfect...but I can dream right? No, I am really excited about it. I thought that I had missed out on the whole "Santa" thing. And I don't think Marti really believes in him, but she is still mentally at a younger age (long story) and she is still very excited about the idea of him and waking up to a present from him on Christmas morning (after we read the real story of Christmas of course). And then, this weekend she surprised me.....and I won't tell you what she did I'll let you see it.....

You got it....I didn't miss out on getting pictures of my first child sitting on Santa's lap.....I get teary-eyed thinking about it. When we saw Santa I didn't think she would sit in his lap. I thought she would say it was for babies. But she was the third one in line. I didn't miss all the firsts....I mean it may not have been her first "Santa visit" but it was a first for us together to do it. I think it was a blessing from God. He allowed me yet again another chance to do something that I didn't think I would get to do. And she even told him what she wanted....a digital camera....better that than a cell She told me that Santa told her to take good pictures and not pictres of her Grandma in her That's funny. Anyway, I don't have much time...but I was just getting excited and needed to share that I did get in on something that I didn't think I would get to be a part of. What a God-thing. Thank you, Lord.
