Twas the night before Christmas…

And all through the house,
Not a creature was stirring,
Not even the baby!

As my little devil naps away, I’m listening to carols and finding it hard to believe that this Christmas hubby and I will be celebrating as parents. All of a sudden the holidays have taken on a new meaning and joy. I don’t really care about what I get under the tree; I can’t wait to see what goodies Drew amasses. Granted, he’ll have no understanding of what the heck is going on and will probably just stare at the tree with a glazed look in his eyes, but it’s exciting for hubs and I nonetheless.

This year we’ll be making the rounds at both of the Gradparents’ houses – Christmas with my family and Boxing Day at a big shindig at my Father-In-Law’s place. Of course, hubby and I will be continuing our own tradition with a Christmas pancake breakfast, complete with mimosas, while opening our presents at home in the morning.

I don’t think I have been this excited for Christmas for years. It’s the start of many wonderful memories for our little family. Tonight I’ll be keeping with an old family tradition that harkens back to my own childhood; I’ll be reading “Twas the Night Before Christmas.” The only difference is that I’m no longer the child sitting in my mother’s lap, I’m now the mother with her own child on her lap.

Merry Christmas everyone and all the best for 2010!
