This year Alyssa was able to be an elf at the Christmas sing along with the bigger kids. She was so happy and even though I was exhausted when we arrived, when she came out singing and skipping with a look of pure joy on her face my long day was forgotten.
Here's a holiday tradition that my mom started when my husband and I first got married. She would buy us a lenox ornament every year for our tree. We have continued buying and now have enough to fill a little tree. It makes me feel like she is still a part of our Christmas tradition but it makes me miss her too.Fantasy of Lights. It's not a very good picture but you get the idea. My girls were amazed by all of the displays. Honestly, I was too. I've never been before and it was worth the trip.
