November

I can't believe it's November.  Already.  The year seems to have passed me by. Soon Thanksgiving will be here.  Val's birthday.  And Christmas.  Then 2013.  The girls are already all about Christmas!!   They're itching to get the decorations down from the attic and have already started singing Christmas songs.  I can only hope that some of their enthusiasm will rub off on me.   The holidays have been hard the past few years.  But I'm trying hard to be excited about the holidays this year.  It is what it is.  Our family dynamics have forever changed and I need to just make our own traditions.  And I hate feeling my girls may have missed out on a few years of magic because Mommy is in a slump.  They are the perfect ages now and who knows how much longer we'll be able to keep up the Santa facade.  So I want to revel in these tiny moments.  I don't want to miss anything.  I want to feel their excitement.  Make memories to last a life time - mine and theirs.  I want to make happy holidays.

And I will because it's all for them.  And no one else.  For my girls.
