december is here!

It’s been a while, isn’t it? The end of the year is getting busy as usual. We celebrated L’s birthday before Thanksgiving and just had his birthday party with school friends on the weekend, we went to Boston for Thanksgiving and we just started getting ready for Christmas.

I was a little sad because we were not going to be all together for Christmas this year. I have spent a couple of Christmas away from my family since I moved to the States, and really, it was fine. But now that I have kids it’s different. I want them to share this special holiday with my family. I want them to grow up having nice memories of Holidays spent and shared with grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins. Because those are the memories I have. But then my sister and brother-in-law somehow made it work and are coming, too! We’re going to have a full house and I couldn’t be happier. I’ve been looking into ideas about how to decorate the house, how to set our Christmas table and I’ve planned a full itinerary of Holiday activities. And I put together our Countdown to Christmas. A tradition I started last year and that hopefully I’ll keep up for years to come.

It’s going to be a hectic, chaotic, maybe a little stressful, month, but it’s going to be fun and joyful. A great way to end the year, with all the people I love. Here, together. All I want for Christmas is that!
