I came across this video of my sweet Abbie. This Christmas was one that I will always remember as a favorite. Honestly, it was such a calm time. I don't remember any of the inevitable squabbles, any financial hardships (although I am sure there were plenty), or any frustrations. I just remember loving my kids, loving the look of the Christmas tree as we walked down the stairs, loving the sweet little baby in my tummy, and loving my Lord.

As a kid growning up, we were not allowed to sing Christmas songs until the day after Halloween. I think it was my mom's attempt to keep her sanity. Not sure it worked, but I digress. As an adult, I have not adopted this rule. We sing Christmas songs all year. We watch Christmas movies in the heat of July. I am a rebel. But, no matter how old I get, I still wake up on November 1st with a little bit of extra joy, because deep down in my heart, I know it is the beginning of the Holiday Season! (Meaning: Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years---they are all one big and glorious season!)
To kick off my happy day, we watched this video:
I am pretty sure that my eldest daughter has a mega crush on the lead singer. Honestly, there are not alot of good guys out there who I would recommend her looking at for ideas of a future husband, but he is a pretty neat one! lol I think knowing that this band loves the Gospel 100% and lives to tell others, makes this happy Christmas song, even happier!!!!
