MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!! It’s my most favorite day of the whole year! I just adore Christmas. I love the decorations and the lights and the sense of peace that comes with celebrating. One thing I love the most though is attending the midnight service with Hubby’s family. Being with his family always makes me happy but being with them for this reason is even better. It instills a sense of peace in me that is hard to find elsewhere and I love it.
Today, we’ll be spending the morning with Hubby’s family and the rest of the day with mine. Hubby, Sibling and I will visit my mother and Gram then head off to the movies to see The Hobbit. None of us have seen it yet (it’s a tradition in my family to watch the Tolkien movies on Christmas and we couldn’t all three go see it together until now) so I’m very excited about it. There will be presents and chocolate peppermint crinkle cookies and gingerbread cake! And homemade chicken pot pie, because that pretty much encompasses everything that I love in food. And it’s very easy to make especially if you cook the chicken the day before. But mostly, today will be about peace and joy and spending time with the people I love celebrating the greatest gift we’ve all been given.
From my family to yours, Merry Christmas
