preserving Christmas memories
Now, Christmas is over but with New Years still ahead I'd say many are still in the holiday spirit. It's worth posting these pictures to me to preserve the memories of Tucker's first Christmas when Anderson showed him the lights on the tree, "Look Baby!" and when he sweetly sat for me when I asked him to. I'll also preserve that sweet two year old face holding his baby brother that is getting older looking by the day.
Some memories from this Christmas which aren't captured will remain with me as well. Namely, Christmas eve service where I stood in the back of the balcony, swaying my newborn, singing Silent Night, and looking down at a grandmother with her hymnal open singing with her grandson. It took about everything in me to not start crying right then and there. Of course my Mom then said, "did you cry?!" I was a December baby so she can still recall the very real hormones a new mom experiences.
What Christmas memories will you hold onto this year?
