Christmas Cookies with the Big Boys

After we got home from the house at Maple Mountain,
Sam went Christmas shopping and took Lincoln and Maxwell with him
while the older boys and I made Christmas cookies.

With Christmas music playing in the background,
the kitchen being filled with delightful smells and cheerful chatter,
and powdered sugar dust coating everything around,
I couldn't help but feel grateful for the experiences I get to have with these sweet little ones,
the memories we get to shape and create,
and the happiness they bring into our lives.

I've always been grateful to be a mother,
but lately I have positively cherished these precious opportunities more than ever.

Life is so full of beauty
if only we choose to see it.
