Merry Christmas 2015

I would like to wish you, my wonderful readers, a very Merry Christmas.  This is a bit of a strange year, and our weather has definitely not been normal for December.  I have experienced a few green Christmases in my life, but I don't remember ever having temperatures warm enough on Christmas eve to be outside in a sleeveless top.

I picked up a few last minute grocery items this morning and I didn't need a jacket - it was very odd. Personally, I find that snow adds a certain magic to Christmas, and it always takes me a lot longer to get into the Christmas mood without it.

This year, the boys are super excited.  They are hoping to catch Santa tonight (they hope this every year and always end up falling asleep long before he arrives).

We always go to my mothers house dinner on Christmas Eve.  My family is all together, we eat, chat and have fun.  When we come home the boys leave out cookies and milk for Santa, and we also read Twas The Night Before Christmas.  When the story is done, we leave the book by the cookies for Santa - and he signs it every year!  This is a tradition that my parents did with us growing up, and I knew I wanted to continue with my children.

Merry Christmas to all of you - thank you for your support in 2015, and I am really looking forward to what 2016 will bring!
