That end-of-year holiday feeling is back in the air once again.
The kids helping daddy put up the Christmas tree and talking over plans to celebrate Nathan's birthday in December.
I know I say this every year... but I just have to say it again...
They have grown so, so much.
Somehow I feel it especially even more so over this past year.
Their growth rate seems to have doubled, even tripled these past few months.
Like beanstalks in the night.
All arms and legs.
"It's like they shot up overnight!" I lamented wistfully to hubs one evening as I observed their elongated legs dangling down, almost touching the floor, while they scrambled up on their daddy in rambunctious bear hugs.
Nevertheless, throughout their supersonic growth rate, they both still retain the same sweet spirit and golden souls. Their smiles still shine through easily and nearly everyone they meet can still almost taste the sweetness on their lips in their cheery hellos and howdy-dos.
