So we only have 3 more days to go until Christmas is upon us! I absolutely LOVE this time of the year. It means more now to me that I have kids and get to share all the fun and delight with them and getting to watch their eyes light up with joy. I am quick to remind them thought, that Christmas isn’t about presents and what not. It is about family, being caring, sharing when you can and wonderful memories and traditions, at least in our house. It is a time to spend the wonderful moments with our family members, eat delicious food, make memories and reminisce about the old.
So with this past weekend, I finished up all my Christmas shopping once and for all and got them all wrapped. I just need to run to the store and get the last-minute stuff for our small Christmas dinner for my little family of four and then Tuesday, we can start prepping for Christmas dinner. This will be our FIRST Christmas here at home, just us! We had plans to go visit my family in Kansas over the weekend, however those plans got crushed by an ice storm that hit us on Friday evening. We got about a half-inch of ice , however we never lost our power. We lost several tree branches though, but nothing was damaged thankfully. Hopefully once it warms up, we can get out there and get it cleaned up. We will make it to see my husband’s family though hopefully next week after the holidays are over and his dad is home.
Do you guys have any Christmas traditions or favorite memories of the holidays?
Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
P.S Happy birthday to my favorite sister duo, whose birthdays are tomorrow!! Amanda and Laura!!! Love you guys! <3
