Twas the day before Christmas...
We did our family Christmas last night with all of our boys because Christmas Day sees us all in different places.
Youngest son will be with me, Middle son will be staying at his girlfriends tonight and waking up Christmas morning with her family, Oldest will be with his dad's family for Christmas lunch, Stepson is moving to Victoria today and hubby will be working.
Yesterday we laughed, we ate and my grandson kept us all amused with his babbling and laughing. That's Christmas - family and laughter.
Thursday morning I will load up the car and the boys and I will make the four hour trek to Renmark to see my family for Christmas, I can't wait. This is truly my favourite time of the year and will be even more special because my grandson is coming with us too. I love that his mum is letting us take him with us.
All of my boys, my niece, nephew and my grandson - now that's Christmas. Relaxing days on the river with sunshine and swimming. What's not to love?
Funny though (and not the ha-ha funny either), today I listened to a friend of my husband describe their early Christmas gathering yesterday and the stress and arguments they endured and I can't begin to imagine Christmas being like that. It's sad that some people's Christmas aren't what they should be.
I also personally know of three families who will be spending this Christmas without a loved one and I am truly saddened. Hugs to all of you, my love and thoughts are with you.
My posts may be few and far between over the next week or so, but I'm sure you all have much more exciting things to do anyway. I plan on enjoying the sunshine and the great outdoors. Already I'm seeing it's a little quiet in the blogosphere at the moment - as it should be.
Here's wishing you and your families all an absolutely sensational Christmas filled with love, laughter and good times.
