You're Gonna Miss This...Moment

This week, this blog is doing a special "You're Gonna Miss This..." for Christmas. And I have decided to play along.
There are a lot of things that I am going to miss about the Christmas season as my kids get older and eventually move out and have kids of their own. Here are just a few:
* I'm gonna miss them fighting over who gets to put the first ornament on our advent tree. They don't yet realize that the person that puts it on first doesn't get to put on the one for the day before Christmas.
* I'm gonna miss the look of sheer delight on their faces when I tell them they are allowed to eat ALL of the gingerbread house at one time.
*I'm gonna miss the snuggles as they climb into bed with my husband and I on Christmas morning, accompanied by squeals of delight as they look through their stockings.
*I'm gonna miss the tangible excitement that fills our house at least a week before Christmas (and the consistanly asking if it's time for Christmas yet)
*I'm gonna miss the wonder in their eyes as they watch the church light up with candles on Christmas eve, and the questions they have as the Christmas story is read.
Merry Christmas my blogging friends!
