Well with the season upon us it seems to have crept up on me somewhat!! Shame they don't really do Nativity plays here, i do miss those from home...still, plenty more new and interesting things that can be found here! Holiday photo Christmas cards....Yes!! I gave in to the traditions of our cousins and found myself making the family Christmas card to distribute across the globe to loved ones! I can only imagine the laughs my family will get out of those!!
With the weather here in sunny Georgia still pretty fine (apart from the early morning that is) it's hard to think that soon enough we will be opening the gifts and stuffing ourselves silly to whatever sweet thing has been made to indulge ourselves on!!
O, so this year we are setting out to Illinois to be with my husbands family this year and it's been hard to keep it from the kiddos and this year I also had to have the "chat" with my son (No not THAT chat) the one about the big guy in red...yeah it's sad and I didn't want to do it so soon, he is 8 years old now, it seems like they are growing too fast, but as it turns out he already knew! my heart dropped...I was pleased I didn't have to be the one to break his heart and shatter the fantasy..but he is enjoying being part of a bigger secret that we can make a reality for the little ones....so I guess it's now something that he can be involved in which is kind of nice and a new mom and son thing we can do together.
Will it be a white Christmas in the Mid-West?? well reports are that i will be struggling to drive in around 18 inches of snow....I know right?? I have no idea how my beautiful Cable-knit UGGS are gonna deal with that..also suede is not a good idea...may have to retort to the wonder that is the Welly Boot!! I wonder if they still do them for adults with frogs on????
The car will be packed with food and gifts..the kids and husband will be sleeping most of the way and I can't help but feel like Santa..all i need are a few reindeer!! Wish me luck...and if I don't get to you before next Saturday have a wonderful holiday,stay safe and remember somewhere around the table there is an empty place where our military should be this year....God Bless them wherever they are and we wish you home safe very soon. Merry Christmas to all.....and to all a good night!
