This year, we will be spending Christmas just like we have the past couple of years, just the six of us. The kids spend all morning playing with Santa's gifts, then we all go to a matinee at the movie theater and finally we prepare a yummy dinner!!! A few years ago, when my parents were still together (they have separated after 45 years of marriage!!), they used to take all six children and their families (that would be 24 people total!) on exotic vacations all over the world!! I do miss that tremendously, and I know the kids miss being with all their cousins, so we do what we can to make them have a fun day!!!
I wish you all a very merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!!! I am so thankful to have met such wonderful, inspiring and encouraging people through this blog, you are truly a gift to me and I am so proud to call you my friends!! With lots of bloglove,
Note: here is something fun we always do on Christmas eve: we track Santa through NORAD!! This military organization shows the kids where Santa is dropping presents, and you can even call them before the kids go to bed and the operator will let you know where Santa is and what time he will be in your area!!
