This year over Christmas break we are doing something we have never done…
No Christmas Tree!
Do I sound like Scrooge?
When we asked our kids what they wanted for Christmas no one had a definite idea of what they needed or even really wanted from us.
Somewhere the idea came that we should head to Florida for a family vacation since it is getting harder and harder to find a time that works for us all.
The college boys have different Spring breaks than the AC kids. Plus Tiff is going on a work team this year to Mexico.
Life is changing around here!
I have to say I am excited to spend quality time with my family… and my Mom. Yep were packing up Grandma and taking her along too!
Some of us are flying, some are driving.
So Christmas shopping was pretty easy this year… just a few exchange gifts.
I have to admit getting the house back together without worrying about Christmas on top of it all has been a gift to me!
Actually on Christmas day itself we will all be traveling home.
I have this idealistic view of how great it is going to be just getting away from it all with my favorite people in the whole world.
I will have to hold onto that when I am about to lose my mind getting everything packed up on Thursday and keep reminding myself who those favorites are as they are the source of my nuttiness!! HA
So you may not hear from me for a few days!
I hope you all have a great Christmas!
I can’t help but notice the palm trees :)
Maybe Christmas was meant to be warm!!
JESUS is the reason for the season!
