I love Christmas and the week leading up to it is full of a place to go. Today is Monday and we start our week with graham cracker house building. It’s our third year and each year my husband and myself (it’s supposed to be about the kids, but oh well) have a healthy competition of who will build a sound structure, and make it beautiful. He’s the engineer and I’m the artist so you can decide who always makes a house that does not fall down, and which one makes it pretty. I’ll post pictures of the healthy outcome.
Then Tuesday rolls around and the weather man says it might snow. Yeah! Snow before Christmas is frosting on the cake.
Wedensday the family heads off the mountain to visit G’s family and do some very last minute shopping. When you live in the sierra’s your either shopping online or you must find time to venture off the hill, and for us that happens to be on very close to Christmas. I don’t even want to consider the crazieness that may come, but it’s Christmas and we will “suck it up.”
Thursday is Christmas eve and even though my darling husband will be at work the kids and I will be enjoying the company of my brother and his wife. We rarely get to see them besides the holiday, so we all have a lot of catching up to do.
Christmas morning and we’re off to my parents house bright and early, with smell of cinnamon rolls baking and fresh coffee brewed pouring out the door way. The tree is full of presents and the kids can hardly contain themselves. What a wonderful day that will be.
G will come home the day after Christmas (so our life goes with a Fireman), so our family will celebrate Christmas with him. We have his mom coming up and his step-mom, so the fun continues.
I hope to write during the week, but if you find me away from my desk you have a very good idea what I’m up to. For all of you who read this blog, thank you for your support, and I wish you a very merry Christmas wherever you are.
