Last year, not a single Christmas tradition passed, that I wasn’t imaging Reese there with us, in the middle of whatever we were doing as a family. And then I would think about how far away she was, and how much I longed for her to be home doing those Christmasy things with us .
We had a stocking for her,
This year, she helped decorate the tree,
and held the very ornament we held onto so dearly the year before.
Last year, at mickeys very merry Christmas party, we carried around Reese’s bunny so she could be with us, But this year, we carried around Reese “bunny” 🙂
She decorated doughnuts for Santa for the first time, as is our Christmas Eve family tradition.
This year she was with us when we went to see the Christmas lights….
and she sat with us each night as we read the story about the coming of baby Jesus.
And so Reese,this is Christmas…. We are so glad you’re home.
From our family to yours!
