As it was nearing Christmas Mason and I were in the kitchen when all of a sudden he stopped in his tracks! He looks at me, very intently and tells me, "WAIT!!! Santa Claus is always watching!" Then he went back to what he was doing! HA!
The joy we felt with our kiddos was also bittersweet... as this is the first Christmas without both my mom and my cousin Axel. It was an absence that was felt immensely by many that I love. I brought a glass angel out to the cemetary to leave with all of the other gifts that had been brought to her. It was an angel that had an LED light on the inside that flickers like a candle... the amazing thing is that it has been going day and night for three weeks now. I love to drive through at night, and see it glow. She is still her with us... even if only in our hearts and memory.
