All I Want For Christmas Is...

Waverley will be getting her two front teeth; that's a given.
Wilder will be happy stacking empty boxes and knocking them down for hours.
Brian will be glad not to go shopping.
Me?  I want time.  That's all I want for Christmas.

I am blessed to be busy with photography and acting this month.  Four weddings, three book/print projects for clients, two other shoots to edit this week, one acting gig (and two auditions) this week... wait a minute, this is looking like the 12 days of Christmas.  Thank heavens I don't have 12 of anything to do, but with all the hustle and bustle of work this month I'm afraid that I'm going to miss Christmas.

Baking won't happen unless it's on a whim, but quite honestly I don't want a million treats and goodies laying around the kitchen.  I'll miss the tradition of making them, but my waistline won't be sad they aren't around.  Brian and I talked last night about being intentional in celebrating this year and I'm hoping we come up with a game plan for family fun, even if it's just for the night of Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

So for Christmas, I think I'll ask for a gift certificate for January to take a week off (or at least 3 days) and do some sewing, baking bread, being cozy, going to bed early and doing photography for myself and our family.  That's what I really, really want for Christmas.

What's on your list?

Two front teeth
Empty boxes
Time together

Okay, I got the list. Now where did I put my Santa's hat?

I love you, Dear One. Mama
