Christmas was our best ever, I think. All the kids were home, with spouse/significant other and one without, for the first time in a few years. The grandkids were here; we met one of them for the first time. We took a lot of pictures and ate a lot of food, which was prepared by everybody pitching in! We took the grand-boy sliding, which was a blast.
We went to church together twice, which was wonderful. My kids were raised in this church which gave them a great faith background. The people here are so genuinely supportive and friendly to the kids that I know that they feel especially welcome when they attend.
Grand-boy was excited about "Jesus' birthday" and doesn't know a thing about the fat guy in red, so we kept it that way.
My oldest may well be ordained in the new year, meaning she will be working on Christmas from now on, so getting home this year for Christmas was especially important to her.
And, yes, we had a white Christmas! Hooray! But the Christmas letters didn't get written (again x 4). Maybe I'll have New Years Letters.
