It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

Good Lord, it's four days until Christmas.  Three days, really, because we have Christmas with my family on Christmas Eve, so everything must be ready by Friday.  And actually, I am feeling pretty on top of things!  The last few presents are on their way from my beloved Amazon Prime.  All that are here are wrapped and ready to go.  The Christmas baking is done (Thanks Mom and Boo!) We have had our Christmas celebration with my Dad's side of the family and are getting together with my Mamaw today for lunch.  Henry is out of school and all of my students have headed home for the holiday...

Dare I say it... we are READY!

And, I guess as always, I am really looking forward to Christmas with our sweet boy.  He is SO into Christmas this year, and I just can't wait for the excitement of xmas morning.  And of course, I can't wait to be off work until January 3rd. That always makes this time of year a little more magical.

Anyway, I have of course been taking some pictures over the last month, which have not been shared here, because I am a crap blogger these days.  I figured now was as good of a time as any to drop them off and wish everyone a Merry Christmas!  I will be back after the holidays with plenty of pictures from the big day :)

The tradition continues!
 And then, back a few weeks ago, we went to Shaker Village for dinner and their Christmas festivities. Nice pictures wee taken :)

Last weekend we had the annual candle lighting, which I didn't do here on the blog, simply because I am not blogging as much as I used to, but it was lovely.  It was also very hard on Henry, which made it very hard on us all.  We miss her so much.
 And then, on Friday, Henry had is 2nd grade class party. It was great!
Love these two
 And as the last update, we had Christmas with my dad's side of the family last weekend, and it was great! Here are Henry and Cici with Great Nana
 The great-grandchildren who were able to attend (Minus little Emma, who had headed home for the night)
 The grandchildren who were still there when pictures were taken (Sorry Mark!)

And here is my Nana with her four children. I know a lot of you kept my Aunt Jan in your thoughts and prayers at this time last year, so I wanted to point out how amazing she is doing :)  It was a true blessing to be able to be together this holiday.

And with that, I will just add that I hope you all enjoy the holidays!  I will see you soon(ish).
