Dear Santa

Dear Santa,

It's 8:06 on Sunday morning. Zach is still sleeping and I'm sitting on the couch staring out the window at the gray sky hanging over the big buildings of Honolulu. Christmas is 9 days away.
I must admit I've stated a few times, "It doesn't feel like Christmas". And I've said this because it's 80 degrees outside and I am missing being with my family.  Zach reminded me the other day how much I hate being cold. Which is true, I don't do well in the cold.

He also reminded me that Christmas is what you make of it and it's about the ones you are with during this magical time of year. And he is absolutely right. I sure love that guy! And I am so thankful I get to spend every day with him. He constantly makes me laugh. I loved seeing him walk to our car with a 8 foot Christmas tree draped over his shoulder.  I love that he keeps Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas Is You" song on repeat. And I love his White Elephant gifts. This year at my work's Christmas brunch his gift was a signed autographed picture of himself. Another classic.

In the remaining days until Christmas there are still some things we want to do:
Do something kind for those in need
See the Honolulu City Lights
Bake Christmas cookies
Watch Elf, A Christmas Story, and Home Alone

Although it's not snowing and we aren't wearing boots and sweaters I do love this time of year. I love that it brings people together. I love spreading Christmas cheer. I love listening to Christmas music all hours of the day. And I love curling up on the couch with Zach, staring at our lovely Christmas tree. It truly is a magical time of year!

At Christmas brunch

Love our tree!
P.S. Santa, I really wish I could ask for a puppy this year...maybe next year.
