As hard as it may be to believe, my favorite holiday memory is not chestnuts roasting, Jack Frost nipping or even "The Nick & Jessica Christmas Special."
Continuously learning to be a father, a husband, and hopefully a better person, I realize that my favorite holiday memory hasn't happened yet.
When Addy and I were married six years ago and spent our first Christmas together in our new home with our own tree, that became my favorite memory.
Last year, only months after the birth of our son, I watched him remind us what this season is really about. That became my favorite memory.
For me, if I'm living like I should and enjoying each day to the fullest, each holiday gets better and better.
We all have our Griswold family moments, but like
Now almost 14 months old, Trey is becoming his own person. He's discovering the wonders of the world (and the cabinets and the coffee table). He's allowing Addy and me to live vicariously through his toddlerhood.
Will this Christmas be better than the last? Something tells me, "Yes."
