What's your favorite Christmas memory?  One of mine is baking cookies with my Mom.  Do you think she thought that we were making a lifetime of memories?  Probably not.  Like any Mother, she was busy.  With everything that Moms do for us, how could she not be overwhelmed?  Christmas is such a busy time of the year that it's easy to get caught up in the rush and miss the really important things.  I hope this year that you take the time to make a special memory with your little ones.
