This year the holidays were a little bit harder without my grandma here with us for our annual Christmas Eve get-together at their house, but through & through it was a very good holiday filled with laughs and good memories.
On the night before Christmas Eve we made Christmas cookies and listened to Disney songs and watched YouTube videos for an hour or more until 1am.
On Christmas Eve my mom & siblings & I all got together before we went to our grandparent’s house and watched old Christmas videos. First we saw some from my mom’s time (1994-96 I believe) then we watched some from my childhood (2002-06). I am so grateful for those videos. I got to see both of my late grandmothers again and hear their voices and see their love. I miss them both.
Then yesterday morning we opened gifts from my mom and watched A Christmas Story and shared laughs and ate cinnamon rolls for breakfast. We then went to my dad’s house and opened gifts from him & his girlfriend which was so sweet of them. We had tacos for dinner and birthday cake for Jesus (complete with candles and singing HBD to him). It’s been a pretty good holiday.
God bless all of you and I hope those of you who celebrate this holiday had a good one!
