As is seems to go each year, the holidays are here before we know it, and we have had little time to prepare. Austin and I always seem to embark on a remodeling project right before Christmas, which leaves us little to no time to focus on decorating for the holidays. This year, Austin has decided to remodel our downstairs bathroom to make it more appealing to the buyers that will hopefully soon be buying our home. So once again in the Goff house we are left with only a small 2 foot tall tree and a few decorations. I had every intention of buying a big one this year, but unfortunately that did not happen. Maybe next year!
We have had a little time to enjoy the holiday season however. Zander and I recently went to the Christmas Lights parade in downton Zeeland with our good friends, The Shafers. We had a great time and we both decided it will have to be an annual tradition. We also had an opportunity to attend the West Michigan Spina Bifida Association's Annual Christmas party. We enjoyed the chance to meet other families in the community as well as chat with some of our new friends who we have met over the past year. Santa even made an appearance and both boys got a chance to sit on his lap and receive their first gifts of the season. Zander was not as thrilled this year to meet Santa, so I got to sit on his lap too!
We are looking forward to another great holiday season spending more time with our family and friends. Maybe someday I will get my act together and get our family a Christmas tree and send out those Christmas cards that I keep saying every year that I am going to do. And in the meantime I will continue spending time with my boys soaking up every minute of the two weeks I get to spend with them!!
