delighting in december...

Can it be just 12 days until Christmas?! We haven't even gotten our outside Christmas lights up yet!

Are you getting a little bit excited?! I AM!

I cannot wait to celebrate the birth of Christ with my family!

Jacob is the only one of my boys singing in the children's choir this year. O Holy Night is going to be a tear jerker for sure!

Jacob also won tickets to Disney on Ice (coloring a turkey in the Saratogian).  It's not something I would have chosen for us to go see, but it was so worth the look on his face! Jacob sat on the edge of his seat through most of the show...and his face! well, it was just FULL of wonder and excitement! so precious.


We also took a ride on the Polar Express! We've been wanting to do this for years! But the boys were either too little, or we couldn't afford it. We sprung for it this year because the boys are old enough where they can remember it, but young enough to still feel the magic of it all. 




OK, so you might not be into the whole "santa" thing, but that's alright. It wasn't just about Santa Clause...



it was the experience of it all! The train ride, the festive atmosphere and Christmas music, the Polar Express story, the HOT CHOCOLATE and COOKIES!






the golden ticket...




ALL of it! Just wonderful and loads of fun for the boys! I'm so glad we got to do it at least once. 

So much left to do this year...gingerbread men, holiday parties, the Trans-Siberian Orchestra (our family tradition), cookies to bake...

but I'm just so thankful and blessed to have my husband and my boys...delighting in december...this advent season...this month when Christ was born.
