Merry Christmas, y'all!
For someone, like me, who is NOT into Christmas at all, it never ceases to amaze me how much I actually enjoy the day once it gets here.
My husband and I decided not to get each other gifts this year. Money has been very tight, and we decided to spend our money on the kids instead. However, he surprised me this morning with a beautiful bouquet and a lovely letter about what a great wife I am and how my presence in his life was "the greatest gift". I really almost cried (and I NEVER cry). I will keep that letter (along with a few petals from the flowers) forever and ever.
After 18 years of marriage, he can still surprise me. I love that.
The kids got a ton of cash from their grandparents. They're at that age.... they don't believe in Santa.... they're too old for toys... so what do you give them? The cold hard stuff. And BOY were they happy!
On a humorous note... I believe my mother is now a candidate for a hearing aid. My 13 year old son was trying to tell her that "beer was better than wine" (from a health perspective, which isn't true by the way) and she totally mis-heard him and announced "Beer can cure the blind?"
Hope you and yours had a great Christmas.
Take a moment to remember the Person the day is about.
And here's some groovy music for your enjoyment (thanks to ChiTown Girl for turning me on to these guys.... I'm now in love with them!)
