I so love this time of the year! I am even loving it more now that I have my two girls home with us! Life could not get any better! Francesca has truly "come into" celebrating this Christmas season. She is so into all the Christmas movies & TV specials. She is also so into decorating the house, and is already asking me what cookies we will be baking this year. As for Annabelle, she wants to do everything her big sister is doing so she is hanging right in there with us and is just having a blast! Tonight after cleaning up from supper, I caught the two girls just sitting in front of the Christmas just looking at it. When I asked what they were doing, Francesca replied, "Isn't beautiful, Mom!" (did I ever mention how this little girl can melt my heart!)
This year our Francesca has taken a real liking to that movie that features a little boy who is not-so-sure that Santa exists and that famous train that rides to the North Pole. She watches the movie at least once a day and has me read the book to her always a bed time. I am "hoping" that this year, Santa will leave her one of those special reindeer bells under our Christmas tree...just for her.
I know that this is year that she would truly appreciate that bell and treasure it forever...and I know for a fact that she...just like her
Mommy & Daddy...will always hear the ringing of that bell...
