My favorite holiday memory is Santa Claus. I would have the hardest time sleeping due to the anticipation. Now that I'm a mom and I have children who believe all those feelings are coming back. The excitement of the morning. Being anxious for him to come. I remember one year I was losing my belief in ole Santa. My mom took my dad's work boot and left a footprint in the ashes inside the fireplace. I couldn't believe it. He had to be real. I so love that my kids feel that now. Justyn is always talking about Santa and going to sit on his lap and ask him for Star Wars. I can't wait for his excitement when Santa brings him what he wants!!!

I also loved spending holidays at my Grandma's house. All the great food and yummy desserts. Spending time with all the family and everyone sitting around talking and playing games. I love holiday time!

I still have a hard time sleeping Christmas Eve Night! I am always up before my kids, lol

My children haven't attached themselves to Santa yet! Is that strange?

I think my favorite memories were all around Santa, too. It was all so exciting and magical!

I love seeing Christmas through their eyes now that my childhood is over! You know it's also fun to see it through Rob's eyes, as he did not celebrate growing up!
