Wait, what?? I am an adult?

Day 15: What do you miss about your childhood holidays now that you are an adult?

What do you mean I am an adult?!?!  When did that happen?

I really miss the anticipation leading up to Christmas.  Days took fooorever.  It seemed Christmas was never going to get here.  Now I blink and it's 10 days before Christmas.  I still have no wrapped a single present and still have 4 or 5 more to buy.

I miss the anticipation of waiting; waiting to see Santa, waiting on Santa, waiting to open gifts and waiting my turn to open my present.  Part of the excitement was all the waiting.  It made it more magical.

I miss the big get togethers with all the extended family.  My mom's side isn't doing it this year and I  haven't seen some of my cousins on my dad's side in years.

I miss the joy of playing with new toys.  Now I have to put together new toys for others to play with. Or we have to go to the next family's Christmas (we do both of our families plus our own immediate family on Christmas day).  I usually don't get to play with my new toys until the day after.

Slowly getting into the Christmas spirit.  It helped going to church this morning and remembering what Christmas is.


  1. Wow! That is a lot of Christmas' in one day!

    1. It sometimes is hectic, but at we like seeing both of our families on Christmas Day. It's something that is important to us, thats why we switch off and on.

  2. Because we got 18 inches of snow yesterday, I stayed home in fresh jammies and watched Christmas movies. I think that buoyed my holiday cheer!

    1. That sounds awesome! Not the 18 inches of snow, but the staying in jambes and watching movies all day.
