It's Christmas Eve and I am finishing up at work. Tonight we will join my mother, father and Grandmother at an early church service. Then, Kevin and I will head home to share a quiet Christmas eve together. In the morning, we will head to my sister-in-laws (as early as we can!) to see what Santa brought our nieces and nephew. They'll run around showing off their gifts as the adults enjoy some yummy breakfast casseroles. After that, we'll join my parents and Grandmother to open gifts with them and then we'll have a Christmas dinner feast with friends and family (including the Middleton's and my cousin Chris & his girlfriend). Finally, the day after Christmas we'll go to my in-laws.
The only thing missing is my brother and his fiance, Sarah. Thank goodness for Skype as we'll be on the computer with them in cyber-space tomorrow! :)
As you can see, it certainly is a busy (and sometimes stressful) time of year, but it is so worth it to be surrounded by friends and family (whether in person or on the computer!). I hope everyone has a very happy holiday and remembers what's important this time of year.
