We hope everyone out there had a very Merry Christmas. We only had two of the five kids with us, and no grandkids, so that made for a very quiet and somewhat sad day. Setting that aside, it was one of the best Christmases I can remember. We were low on funds, so we knew we would not get many material gifts. Which meant we had very low expectations. The really great thing about low expectations is you are rarely disappointed and in this case, we were tickled pink with whatever gifts we had. Nathan did all of the gift shopping and he did a great job. I really love that man!
The boys were very mature about the light number of gifts. I've been very proud of both of them lately for various reasons and today was another reminder of why. I told them today that they are so much cooler than I was when I was there age. One of them told me they are cooler than I am now. I agree!
We did enjoy our biggest family gift, which was Ava.
Merry Christmas to all!
