Today I want to share with you a little behind-the-scenes action of how we celebrate the holidays at our house. You’re on the edge of your seat, I know.

The fact is, our holiday traditions probably look a lot like yours. I think this universal connection is part of the beauty of the season. We don’t have any extraordinary events or breathtaking moments. Well, I take that back. I do witness some pretty breathtaking moments, but they’re not what most people would consider BIG holiday moments. It’s the small moments that I adore throughout the holidays. Those split second moments of being present, realizing my aliveness, valuing my blessings.

Keep it small. Keep it simple. That’s holidays our way!

So, as promised, here are a few small moments from my family’s holiday season…

Three sweet Christmas calves with adorably curly coats were born on my in-law’s farm! Little J obediently gave the mama cows some space, but couldn’t help himself from yelling, “C’mere cows! I see you baby cow!” clear across the pasture. He’s a naturalist at heart. Fearless and adventurous about everything. I wouldn’t have him any other way!

My hubby patiently helped Little J set up the Christmas train around the tree. I watched the glow on their faces as they both sat with their heads in their hands, contentedly kicking their feet. Oh, two men and a train! It makes my heart sing.

Merry Christmas!

Snap a mental photograph. Write down a memory. Take time to cherish those small moments this holiday season!
