Good morning (or afternoon or evening or whenever), RMT’ers! I hope everyone is having (or had) a great day today getting in those last-minute preparations for the Big Day tomorrow! As if you even have (had?) time to read this post… but if you do/did, thanks for stopping by!
I know you’re probably busy, so I’ll try to keep this short with a dash or two of sweet mixed in for good measure.
For me, Christmas Eve isn’t just about the last-minute, rush-rush of it all, but it’s more so about reflecting on the wonderful holiday season that our family and friends had together. I take time today to look back on the fun we’ve all had this month doing those special holiday things that only come around this time of the year. C, T, and I will talk about what was the most fun and the most memorable times he had, and we even discuss the specific outings and events that he wants to schedule in for next holiday season. Hey, never too early to start as Christmas 2013 is just 367 days away, right?!
OK, let’s stop THAT insanity for just a moment. As I said today is more about reflection (and last-minute prep) rather than advance planning, so let’s get to it.
Just like my pumpkin patch post that covered T’s last few Halloween seasons, below is a pictorial capture of T through the years at some of his favorite holiday outings each season. While I tried to find a photo of him at the South Coast Plaza holiday train each season, turns out either we didn’t make it down there each year, or I didn’t get even one photo of him on that train. The latter’s unlikely though; I’m pretty sure we’ve gotten there each season since T’s turned two-years-old because of his love of all things train.
So please enjoy T’s six-season photo sequence below, and enjoy reflecting on your own holiday season. I hope it was as merry and bright as ours was, perhaps even train-filled.
I wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Don’t be surprised if you don’t hear from me for a bit on the blog, RMT’ers. Just like at this time last year, I might be offline for a while for my version of “winter break” and some focused downtime with family and friends. I hope you have a fun and festive, yet safe and peaceful, next couple of weeks. Enjoy and “see you next year” in 2013!
