So. I had every intention of posting on Christmas, and/or immediately afterwards, but, well… life got in the way. There were presents to open, toys to put together, family to visit, food to eat, cookies to bake, errands to run, etc. My Christmas was really nice. Alyssa and Ryan didn’t wake up until nearly 8:30 (in fact, they came into our bedroom to wake us up exactly two minutes before my alarm was set to go off!), so we had the rare treat of opening presents while morning light trickled into our living room – whereas last year, and the year before, it was still dark out!
Christmas, and now New Year’s Day, being on a Tuesday is just weird. Last Monday and this coming Monday are sort-of holidays where everyone is in a frenzy for last-minute preparations, and the Tuesdays are definite days off. The kids have been off of school since Friday the 21st, and they don’t head back until this coming Wednesday. Needless to say, all of our routines have gone right out the window.
So, how was your Christmas?
