I just love Christmas!!

"I just love Christmas". That's what my son said as we drove home tonight in the beautiful snow. He was so excited that we had snow on the ground at our house just like at Uncle Matt and Aunt Denise's.

What a day of celebrations. Mikayla and I got to take time out and attend the Christmas Tea at Faith. It was wonderful. She got to help pass out some chocolates and really felt special. She is definitely growing up fast.

Then there was the surprise. Greg surprised me a couple of weeks ago with an early Christmas present. He bought tickets for us to go and see Michael W. Smith's Christmas concert. He even arranged for the kids to be with their cousins for the day. It was fantastic. All I had to do was go. And it was AWESOME. I haven't seen Smitty in concert since 1997. He is still the BEST! Melinda Doolittle and George Huff (from American Idol) were with him and both brought down the house. It was so awesome. Michael has such a good time. He really worships in all that he does. His humility shines through and you find yourself lost in worship too. So awesome!! The orchestra was so good too. So much talent in one room. It blew Greg and I away. Then it was on to Bell Square to find our ornament (something we do every year) and then dinner at Red Robin next to Lake Washington. So special. We even got a glimpse of the walk out dock on Lake Washington all lit up with Christmas lights. That is where Greg proposed to me 12 1/2 years ago. It was perfect. Oh yeah, and did I mention the beautiful snow that fell just for me tonight. It was so romantic. The perfect touch to a perfect day.
