I love a snowy Christmas, it reminds me of childhood going to grandma's house and having a Christmas eve gift giving. Well, at that age, it was a gift opening and it was always such fun to get to open something early! I hope that my kids have fond memories when they get older. Not just about Christmas past but wonderful memories of things that we did or will do as a family. I have a short "bucket list",perhaps the kids will want to accompany me as I cross things off the list. One thing I'd really love to do is go see the northern lights. I need to research and determine when is the best time to go. Jeff isn't thrilled with the idea but I'll gladly follow him on a vacation that he wants to do, if he'll follow me on mine.
Nascar 09. What could be better???
and more gifts.....
and still more gifts.
- Christmas brought some wonderful visitors, 28 family members and one huge snowstorm. I think that the pile of gift wrap, opened boxes, toys, clothes and Wii and PS2 games was much deeper than the 9 inches of snow that we got. Now, 5 days later, I'm still digging out but not from the snow. The digging involves the clutter that is left in the wake of a Christmas brunch with 34 people total, when you add in us Keller's.
Christmas was a wonderful day. I always love having people come to our home and celebrate with us. Like I said earlier in this post, we had 28 visitors and the 6 of us crammed into this house. Makes me realize how small my kitchen is and how nice it would be to have more space for entertaining. But, we have a house, we have work, and I am able to stay home with our kids. For me, that is what is most important.
