The Reason for the Season

I wrapped up (haha, notice my pun) the shopping today. My in-laws sent cash so I had to do their shopping for the kids and it was my last trip for gifts. There were so many people spending oodles and oodles of money on gifts. Overflowing or multiple carts were in abundance. All fine and good. I just hope everyone takes a step back to remember the reason for our celebration. We don't overdo "it" ourselves and never really have. We don't spend a certain amount or worry obsessively over the big thing this year. While the gifts are nice, I'll be re-iterating to my kids the whole meaning of Christmas. And remembering myself, the ultimate sacrifice given for me. With that said, I hope you all enjoy your holiday season with family and friends. And speaking of is our annual family picture. Merry Christmas!
