I love Christmas.
I love the candies and the cookies.
I love watching the excitement on my children’s faces as the exciting day approaches.
I love the music, the lights, the magical atmosphere that is EVERYwhere.
I love the smell of pine and freshly baked Christmas goodies.
I love it, I really do.
But shopping for 5 children and various family members, mailing 200 Christmas cards, the cooking and baking, the mess that a wonderfully-smelling tree leaves every day, and now, this year, the preparations for a week-long car trip out of state. It’s all good.
But I have less than a week left.
Where did the time go?
When am I going to fit everything in?!
This is the time for the Christmas time panic to set in.
How do you fight it?
PS–since a few of you asked….no, that is not my house. I can’t even imagine. No, that’s a Christmas creche display at the Washington DC LDS temple visitors Center, where we made a visit yesterday. :)
