Everyone is sleeping and the only sounds in the house are the ticking of the clock (reminding me I need to go to bed!) and the sounds of the computer keys. I have very few moments when things are this peaceful. Generally, when my night owl of a son finally goes to sleep I am way to exhausted to contemplate doing anything but going to sleep too. Tonight feels different.

I am loving the stillness right now. I feel like I go go go all day ( I guess that goes with the territory of a 1 1/2  and 2 1/2 year old) and never have time to just sit and do nothing. Maybe in the morning I will regret staying up too late, but for now I am going to just relish in the silence.  The Christmas lights are twinkling on the tree making me more aware that Christmas is just two days away! I am so excited this year..... it is the first year Jaxson actually really grasps what is going on and has asked for special things from Santa. I can not wait to see the looks of joy on their faces!

We have a lot of fun things planned for the next few days and I can not wait to just soak it all in. Despite the stress that comes along with Christmas, this really is my favorite time of the year. So, now I am off to sit and enjoy a little bit more silence before all the festivities begin!

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!
