If we were having coffee on this Christmas Eve, we would be in Seattle! The weather is much better than when I drove up here yesterday. That was a stressful drive in heavy rain and for a short 50 or so miles, heavy snow! But I’m here!
I am enjoying knowing that my daughter and her family are safe about 40 miles from here with her in-laws. I won’t see them tomorrow. I won’t see them until they go home, probably Tuesday. My other daughter has texted that she’s an hour away. Then I’m here with my son and his family, including 7 month old Mati who is so different now than he was last month when I came up for Thanksgiving! It is tough to believe that he wasn’t with us last year, he’s become so much a part of our lives!
It will be a low-key Christmas. I don’t have to do much but enjoy it and play with the baby! I couldn’t ask for much more than that!
How about you? Where are you? Is all your holiday planning done, leaving you to just mellow out and enjoy? I certainly hope so.
Have a wonderful Christmas and Hanukkah! Enjoy family and friends and feasting! I’ll be back tomorrow with the story of the night I was born, many Christmasses ago.
I will leave you with links so a couple of favorite Christmas stories from the past:
