Welcome to the New Year!!
We had a great Christmas break at our house. My husband had off for 4 days during the Christmas weekend. He has never had that much time off at the holidays before. (He works in retail....so you understand why he doesn't get the time off.) We really enjoyed the time together. We celebrated Christmas with family the entire weekend of Christmas, and we have another family celebration this weekend. I love getting together with family, and Christmas found one entire side of the family together. That RARELY ever happens. With several family members in different states, it makes getting together difficult. So I cherish the times when we all get together.
New years eve was very quiet and uneventful around here. Our church has a lock-in for the youth group during the night (goes 7pm until 7am), so our 2 oldest kids went to that. Our 3 youngest went to bed around their usual times. So hubby and I ordered pizza, drank sparkling grape juice, and watched movies. We didn't quite make it to see the new year in, but we knew it would come just fine! (c:
The "normal" routines are starting to settle in. It has been very cold lately, but it did snow a bit last night~so at least it looks pretty outside! There has been a slight change in our house, but I'll fill you in on that one later......
Have a great day!
