Well, it's almost here, tomorrow is Christmas Eve. I was in such a good mood up until two days ago, now I feel a little sad. I can't put my finger on it, I don't know why. May be it's just that I really can't do anything with this broken ankle, and it has me a little down. Christmas is my favorite time of year, and right now I am wrapped and ready, so that should make me happy. Usually I am wrapping on Christmas Eve at 5 pm, right before we all get together to exchange gifts.
They are predicting snow in this area for Sunday/Monday. It is really just a tease of course. They are giving us three scenario's of the storm. I guess they just say that so they can't be wrong no matter what happens.
Since our daughter got married and started having children we have changed our family tradition a little. We use to all gather at our house on Christmas Eve and we had an Open House for friends and family. We would open gifts on Christmas day after Santa came. Since we have downsized to a little community and our daughter has children and the big house we have decided to go there and continue the tradition, except we exchange gifts that night.
When your children are grown and out of the house it is a little different on Christmas morning now. So Christmas Eve is our Christmas morning. Christmas day they can spend with us or their significant other/husband's family. It works out pretty good.
Well, that is our tradition, what is yours? It's almost here! I am wishing you and your family a joyous holiday and good things to happen in 2011! Enjoy each other and appreciate how lucky we all are.
