I’ve come to the conclusion that Olivia doesn’t need a lot of stuff for Christmas.  Some of the best gifts can’t be bought.  Sometimes, especially this time of year, we overwhelm ourselves with “things".  Some of the best things are simply sitting down with your child to read a book or color or dance around the house to “The Bunny Song” from Veggie Tales. . .Olivia’s favorite.  It’s like we put pressure on ourselves to “perform” for our family and friends by what we buy them when gifts are not what they really want.  Plus, it’s always the little things that Olivia seems to like the most. . .the unsuspecting items that capture her heart.  So, with that. . .I’m off to go make my daughter smile by just being her mom.
