Can you believe tomorrow night Santa will be coming to visit and months (or weeks or days) of hard work are over in just a few short minutes? Part of me is ready for it to be here so we can get on with whatever’s next (hopefully another Disney trip for us!!) and the other part of me wants to “redo” and squeeze in all the things I didn’t have time for this year. Thankfully the kids haven’t much noticed that there aren’t as many decorations, cards didn’t get mailed or that there are fewer gifts under the tree. Stop by The Dragyn’s Lair tomorrow to learn about a few of our family traditions during the holiday season. We did actually fit some of them in this year!
Next week we’ll be making some new year’s resolutions and goals. I’ve been spending so much time thinking about goals I’d like to set for the new year and how I’d like to improve myself and my life. Of course the obvious always come to mind – getting in better shape, being more organized, being a better mom/co-worker/employee/wife. Instead of making some broad goals this year, I’m going to really think them through before hand and make sure I’ve got steps to help me actually achieve my goals so I’m not setting myself up for failure.
One thing I’m excited to share is that I’ll be upping the Disney content on the site. Slowly I’ve been uploading our personal videos to YouTube so I can share them with you as I tell you our families dos and don’ts while we’re at Disney. During our past few trips I’ve been taking lots of pictures and videos as well as notes to share lots of the little details in the different attractions we enjoy on our trips. I still want to share all the other fun things – craft projects, fun blogs to follow, scrapbooking, travel and lots of other things that come along with being a mom.
During the craziness, please remember one thing: cherish every second. Your kids will only be this age this Christmas. They’ll only go crazy over tracking Santa on Norad or dreaming up ways to catch Santa for a few short years. Enjoy them. Cherish them. Not just the kids either – parents, friends, family. You can learn so much from those around you. Take the time to hear what they’re saying and sharing.
