Merry Christmas, friends! We are just wrapping up our third married Christmas, and I wanted to wish my bloggy friends a very happy, healthy holiday before it was too late! Hubby Blue and I were very, very lucky to spend the last FOUR (yes, 4!) days together, and we enjoyed it immensely. As we usually do, we had our own Christmas at home on Christmas Eve morning, then we headed to my parents' house for church and dinner with my mom and dad, my two brothers, and my brother's fiancee. We spent Christmas Day with them also and had a really nice, relaxing day today. I just love so many things about this holiday...the lights, the Christmas trees, the food (nothing beats my dad's peach melba and my mom's delicious brunch), the time together, the music, the smell of pine trees (even if it is from a candle instead of a real live tree :), the carols sung at church, sitting around together drinking Bailey's on Christmas Eve and hot coffee on Christmas morning, shouting "He came! He came!" as if we're still little kids on Christmas morning...it's just all so comforting and there are so many happy memories wrapped up in Christmas. We normally visit Hubby Blue's family too, but they were on vacation this year. I think that was hard for Hubby Blue, but we made the best of it! I know we won't always have the luxury of spending this holiday together, so I made sure to drink it all in this year! My prayers go up for all the law enforcement families who sacrificed time with their loved one yesterday and today. You are appreciated!
HB heads back to work tomorrow and (fingers crossed!) will be wrapping up FTO in the next couple of weeks. What a journey this has been!
Merry Christmas from our family to yours!
