I continued the custom for a very long time, however as our youngsters acquired older, it turned harder to plan Christmas round our youngsters and grand youngsters and in addition host the Open Home. We’d simply be on the stage in our lives the place we begin that up once more? It’s on the desk for dialogue anyhow.

The Christmas Eve Open Home was nice! Our buddies mother and father hosted and we noticed a number of associates, performed video games, met some new individuals and had a present trade the place you get to steal every others presents. Such a enjoyable night time!

Then to my mother’s for dessert the place I had a small sampler platter of cookies and pumpkin bread.

After a reasonably fast go to with my mother, Mike and I met his brother on the films. We noticed Collateral Magnificence with Will Smith, and whereas I knew it was going to be a tear jerker, I liked it.

Then to a bar. I do know. Not a really conventional factor to do on Christmas, however I actually didn’t need to sit residence and our KC Chiefs are having a fantastic yr! Why not watch with a number of followers? There have been restricted locations open, and the bar that we discovered was solely serving drinks and pizza. Okay!

Among the best elements of Christmas Day whereas sitting within the bar, was our household group textual content. We have now a gaggle textual content that has been going for some time now that features all the youngsters and Mike and I. We have been all someplace totally different and we have been all sending footage of what we have been doing and sending goofy textual content messages. Oddly, it felt like we have been all collectively.

Christmas traditions change, and I’m okay with that, particularly figuring out that each one of my youngsters are protected and pleased and we really feel related, even by way of textual content messages.

Whereas our Christmas Eve and Christmas Day have been very totally different this yr, we had a good time having fun with new traditions
