It’s finally that time of year. The holidays are here, well, they’ve been here for some time. I shared with you what Christmas looks like in our new home a few weeks back. A few things have been added since then, a few things moved, just figuring out where I want everything.
What I really can’t wait for though are the firsts that will take place over the next few days in this new home. The first time we put on our Christmas pajamas (the kids get them every year, and sometimes Mike and I get some new ones, too. I forgot to buy us some this year and I finished the last of my shopping earlier today. I have no plans to go anywhere near a store in the next 48+ hours so it looks like old jammies for the two of us this year). I can’t wait to tuck the kids in on Christmas eve, for the first time in this house. Waking up on Christmas morning and opening presents under the Christmas tree and welcoming family to our home is another first I’m looking forward to.
I cleaned the house from top to bottom this morning. Mike helped and so did the kids. We went through their rooms, a tradition of ours, searching for toys we can donate to some boys & girls in need. We are ready for the next few days, to say the least.
This Christmas is a little different than others though because we’ll be heading out bright and early the day after to drive down to Siesta Key for my cousin’s wedding. They are from Michigan and decided to have a beach wedding, this December couldn’t be any more perfect for it with the weather we’ve been having lately.
So, from our family to yours, here’s to a Merry Christmas filled with love & joy and anything else you’ve been wishing for!
