my favorite part...

my most favorite part of Christmas this year... and maybe ever...
was...
just before bed...
The Excitement!
We set out milk and cookies and carrots for Santa and his reindeer... then put the magic key outside since we don't have a chimney...
then we sat just the four of us on our driveway under the stars and moon... we hugged our children tight as can be... and Pappa and my eyes met and we were sparkling happy to be in this moment! I will always remember this moment...
Isabelle whispered quietly...
"Mamma, if you are really quiet and listen hard, you can hear the bells..."
it was so beautiful and sweet all at the same time!
we sat there for a bit and listened for the bells... and we heard them.
