I love the Christmas season, I always have, and that hasn’t changed now that we head south for the winter. It is definitely different from what we were used to, but honestly it’s not all bad. Yes I miss being at home with family but our last Christmas at home was the last Christmas our boys were at home and our daughter was already celebrating Christmas morning with her own family, so honestly I think the timing of our southern travels was perfect! Christmas was going to change anyways and we needed to accept that rather than hanging onto the past.
Now we are decorating when it’s warm out and with the addition of our shed I can add to my decorations 😆
We have spent the last few days visiting with friends who are heading home for Christmas, doing laundry, sitting inside watching Christmas movies and lights twinkling on the Christmas tree.
In four days we will pack our suitcases and make the three hour drive to Phoenix to catch a flight to Edmonton where we will spend Christmas with our two son’s and their families.
Yes Christmas is different but still awesome and a season I truly love!
Until next time …
