Hubby: Can we open one gift tonight??
Me: NO! Go away!
I believe this may have been Draco as a Kitten
So we have lots of snow outside... I LOVE it. It means that we are going to have a White Christmas! I have lived in Nebraska and Colorado, but having a Christmas with lots of snow on the ground, or a Christmas when it actually SNOWED?!?!?! I can't remember when that has happened.
Last Christmas it was just cold and icy out. There was a little bit of snow on the ground. We were still in Colorado and all of our Christmas decorations were on a ship somewhere on their way to Germany. The hubby and I got the kids clothes for Christmas (easier to pack), we let them open their gifts in the morning, Googled places to eat that were open on Christmas day, and were happy that IHOP was open.We had dinner at IHOP and then went to Tinseltown and watched Avatar and Sherlock Holmes.
It was almost like being a practicing Jew again! More importantly, we were having fun as a family. That day was definitely about spending time together and being happy. That is a Christmas I will forever remember as the best Christmas ever.
