Was my Christmas season a good one? Yes. It was. I have to say that I was full of nervous energy as it approached. But I have to say that when it was all done and over I was pleased with how it turned out.
Phil and I were able to get most of the shopping done sooner than we normally do. Phil wrapped most of the presents, which I have to say was a pleasant change of events. Christmas Eve started at church, it was a Sunday after all. Then I took a nap. It was so nice to just relax and be chill. Then per family tradition, we went to Justice house for the family celebration. And while I had my fears about the evening it was nice. All four kids were there, not all the grandchildren showed, but most of them. Dinner was completed and the kids opened their presents. They were quite thrilled especially since uncle Jason bought them the huge Nerf guns with the balls. I’m pretty sure the kids could perform a mutiny and I’d surrender. These Nerf guns are massive. It’ll be a fun day when we have another Nerf war.
Christmas Day we woke up to find what Santa brought. The kiddos were quite happy when they saw their gifts. I have to say Phil really made me happy. He gave me some wonderful gifts. Including four new pop figures, two new books, two new movies, and two new CDs. He does know me well. And per family tradition, we then went to my mom’s where we had breakfast. Yummy sausage links, bacon, plain rolls, cinnamon rolls, orange rolls and many many cups of chocolate milk. Then we went to Gma Knights and I had a good time talking with my cousins. I think as adults we get along better than we ever did as kids. Once we left there, we came home to play with our new toys. Bedtime came and it was nice to just go to bed knowing that the day was good.
So, all in all, I did have a happy holiday. Thank God. It was something I was praying over since years past have proven difficult. While I know the season is officially over, Merry Christmas to all.
that is all.
