Holiday Happiness

I love Christmas.  I love seeing my children experience everything I have already done, and more.  This year, they really got into it.  Darby turned 4 in October and Gabe turns 3 in February.  Santa became an important part of our holiday tradition this year.  Though I've tried to keep family drama away from my kids, they've asked me, "Mommy, why're you cryin'?"  I can't explain, the whole family-drama component...but I love them more than I can explain, so I don't tell them all of the pain that can come along with family gatherings.  But we are still building our traditions, so hopefully we can make them loving, happy ones.  I have to say, things are always getting better, they're getting better all the time...:)
