Some of my fondest memories of Christmas range from my childhood to my children’s childhood. As I sit in the negative-degree wind chill weather we are currently experiencing and work on the last-minute wrapping and meal prep, I can’t help but think back on some of the wonderful memories we’ve made.

However, the non-stop back and forth between our two growing boys — one a full-blown teenager and the other now a middle schooler — snapped me back to reality. But it did hit me in that moment just how fast time is flying by.
