I want to share some of my most favorite Christmas traditions.
We all get together as a family and do a gift exchange. There are three things you can choose from PJ’s, slippers or a blanket. I always choose PJ’s. (Who doesn’t like a nice pair of PJ’s!!) Most of the time we get very silly things for each other. We also do a cookie bake. We all get together and bring the cookies we have baked and trade. Momma B and I love to make truffles and sugar cookies. What is your favorite? My sister-in-law makes a taffy bar that I love!!
Another Christmas tradition I love is that I write Santa letters to all the kids in my life. Here is yours!!
I am so excited to write to you this year! I have been watching you and you are so AMAZING!! The strength you show everyday being the truest you only you can be. It is not always easy being who we really are, but you have shown me just how strong someone can really be. I know there have been difficulties. I have seen them. I have also seen you stand tall. Even when you do not know it, someone is watching you. Seeing you be brave. I am sending you a special gift this year. Love!! All the love that I have in me. All the magic that Christmas brings I am sending to you.
This is my favorite time of year. It is a time of magic and wonder. Know that Momma B and me are here thinking about you and wrapping our arms around you tight. You are so loved my sweet child. Everything about you. Right down to your mismatched socks. Papa and Grandma M send their love. Your sisters send their love as well. I know the girls (that is what we call the cats) would love to curl up in your lap and get a lot of loves. The picture is Nan. She would know just how much you needed some love and oh, how she can give loves.
Know there will be a place set at the table for you. There is nothing but love and light at our home for you!!
With the New Year, I hope you find yourself in a place of peace and joy. You will be in my thought and I cannot wait to write to you next year.
I love you oh so much,
