The First Time
This is the first year that all of my three older children are simply wonderstruck by our Christmas tree. The girls don't pick at it, they just stare in wonder.
I catch them all time, just sitting still and looking or laying under the tree looking up through the branches at the lights and ornaments.
The awe in their expressions and the quiet as they sit so still by the tree (a rare thing in my house) is just as wonderful as the sounds of giggles as they snuggle together under the tree.
It is sweet and wonderful too see the magic of Christmas reflected in their eyes.
