I am ready for the festivities to begin! Did I finish my knitting goals for Christmas? Yep. Am I wrapped? Yep. Did I finish the baking? Not really. Baking is not my absolute favorite part of the holidays. It just makes me eat more sugar than I really need to eat.
As you know, we celebrated Christmas with my husband's parents in October and then my family during the Thanksgiving break. That just leaves the four of us during the Christmas break. I kind of like it. We have lived away from extended family since our marriage (gasp! 25 years this year). The Christmas break is filled with watching holiday movies, video game playing, walking Frodo and lots of reading. Sometimes we venture out and do a bit of shopping. It really is the only time during the year that we are all together. I am sure in the near future the kids will be on their own and new traditions will begin.
I hope that you all have a wonderful holiday season filled with family, friends, laughter and good health. See you all next week, Merry Christmas!! -Karen
