This year we celebrated Christmas is a new way....Christmas Eve. My son got married and now I have to share..sniff..sniff.
New traditions cause growing pains...why? Because we will miss what once was. Like the kids getting in bed with us Christmas morning and we all open our stockings. This year there will only be one kid jumping in the bed with a stocking. *Big sigh*
However, this Christmas Eve thing wasn't too darn bad.
- Granddaughter's first Christmas.
- It works for the divorced peeps and the ones that have other Christmas plans so I got everyone....every one at my house this year! even 3/4 of the new inlaws. Score!
A little of our day:
Before the mayhem and mess
The older kids waiting while the younger kids separate the gifts..ahh the techno age
Grandpa helps Bella open gifts
It was an early morning for some after a late work night. LOL
Smoked turkey and all the fixins
Yes, the silverware matches
Yo Yo Yo Santa dog, what's up?
Tomorrow we do stockings for the three of us left and then our plans are completely open and we shall dine on leftovers. It will be unlike any other Christmas Day proper, but we will adjust and meet the new traditions head on!!
Merry Christmas and may you take all your new traditions in stride.
And many prayers for those who's traditions were changed forever...............
