Spreading Christmas Cheer
This evening, our family and another family visited a nursing care facility to take some goody bags to residents and sing some carols for them. The people seemed so happy to see (and hear) the children! Who wouldn't be happy to see those smiling faces? It was a blessing to us and I hope it was to them.
As for Christmas prep, a few items remain: 1)Tomorrow, I hope to make sausage balls and stained-glass cookies; 2)wrap a few gifts; 3)get suitcases packed for our trip back home on Christmas Day; and 4)get the house tidied up for our post-Christmas visitors. Of course, anything I tidy up tomorrow will be obscured by the flying wrapping paper on Christmas morning! Tomorrow is also my parents' 45th anniversary so I hope to Skype them to convey our well wishes.
Christmas morning will dawn with our crew already seated around the tree, taking turns opening our gifts. We'll have a simple, easy-on-Mom breakfast and then be on our way to the grandparents'; lunch with Mimi & Papa and my brother's family and dinner with Nana and Gdad & hubby's brother's family. I don't know if I'll be blogging over the next few days but I sincerely hope that everyone reading this has a very blessed Christmas!
