It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas...

Oh yes it is.  The boys totally "get" it and it is SO much fun! Oh' it is so great to be home, going to Christmas parties with my boo's and getting haircuts and making them breakfast.  I love it!  I appreciate it. I relish it because I never know when I will have to jump ship again.

We decorated the tree.  A really, really big one. Like some 10 feet that the boys picked out and thankfully our ceilings are able to accommodate it. The front door. Not so much. After a few lost branches we made er' work though.

We fought over ornaments, investigated and laughed big belly laughs...

We snuggled and hung, snuggled and hung...

 (Holy tired Mommy just home from a week in the hospital batman. Little did I know here I would be going back for another week the next day.)

(oh you gorgeous thang you)

When all was said and done we sat back and admired...

(i phone pic)

Erh... or borrowed Mommy's camera and took photography into our own hands (thank you Austin, quite impressive)

  (Maybe had a snack of peanut butter on a spoon in the buff, naturally.)

(in typical jenn fashion with the vacuum in hand)

We went to holiday performances where my boy merely stood on the stand looking for me, finger in mouth instead of participating. What can I say, our obsession with each other runs deep.

(Crappy pics, I know, but I was like a mile away, guess I know what to ask Santa for ; )

Pax watched on with brotherly pride flowing out of every pore. Clapping and dancing. What he wouldn't have given to crawl right up on that stage!

They made Mommy's favorite white chocolate covered pretzels with Nana while she was off to the doctor.

Pax helped by tearing apart the tupperware cabinet and crawling with one in his hand thus smearing it from one end of the house to the other. So long as he enjoyed it, which he did, it's all good with me.

Tonight we went Christmas shopping and filled the car with goodies for little boys who have had one hell of a year and deserve a extra "specials" from Santa.  As pictured below, our bumper was draggin a smidge ; )

And I continue to glow in the love my boys continue to give me day in and day out.  Oh' how they fill me up. Like Mason announcing when I walked into his class party today "that's my Mommy friends, I wuv her, say hi!" My cup runneth over to say the least.  He was SO proud of me and it was in that moment of clarity that I was reminded that they are what it's all about. What I am all about and that is so freaking awesome!

Yep. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here.  Oh' their faces come Christmas morning.
Yet, at 3 and 4 they actually know the meaning of that morning. If you ask them, they will tell you "it is Jesus' birthday Mommy."  For that I am proud. 
Proud when Masons teacher says to me "it is so obvious how much he is loved."  
My mission in this life is complete. My boys know they are loved beyond measure and radiate it. Even through the separation, they know.  Come hell or high water, they will always know. 

Merry Almost Christmas Friends.  It's gonna be a good one!
