I’ll be Home for Christmas

Christmas tree, Christmas lights

I’ll be home for Christmas
You can count on me
Please have snow and mistletoe
and presents on the tree

Christmas Eve will find me
Where the love light gleams
I’ll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams

In the Holiday Spirit!

I truly love the Holiday season. It’s all about quality family time, family traditions, the children, relaxing, sharing stories over dinner, remembering past holidays, and cherishing good health. And oh yeah, gifts, decorations,holiday movies, holiday music, food, and all that wonderful stuff as well. But those things would mean nothing without family.

Thanksgiving is just a few days away. It will be Megan’s first Thanksgiving and Christmas! I’m a Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade fan. When I was a little girl, my sisters and I would jump up and down with excitement at the end of the parade when Santa Claus would appear. We knew it meant that it’s now Christmas time, mom and dad would be putting up the tree and going shopping for our new toys soon. So when I was pregnant with Megan last year around this time, I started crying at the end of the Macy’s parade and told my mom why. She laughed, I laughed,  and we hugged.

I guess I should post some family Christmas snapshots from the past. As for now, these are some of my favorite Christmas photos that I took in 2010. I was pregnant and wobbling like a penguin. It was extremely crowded and people kept getting in my way, lol, but I managed to do a nice job. I would like to go back to this Christmas Light show this year. 

My favorite one:
