We were blessed with WONDERFUL family gatherings on both sides this Christmas! It makes me so happy to know that we were all together for Christmas... first on my side of the family for Christmas Eve, and then on big M's side of the family for Christmas Day. And even time at our own little house for SANTA presents in between the two gatherings. Nevermind that I probably gained a million pounds from all the eating (tis why God invented New Year's resolutions, after all)... I felt very blessed this year. It didn't have anything to do with the gifts, although we were showered with AWESOME gifts, especially little M. It had everything to do with family.
But on the subject of gifts, whoa, my kiddo made out like a BANDIT! Tons of toys, clothes, and diapers at Nana's house, toys and clothes from Santa, tons of toys and clothes from Aunt Tina's house.... we are so blessed that people think so highly of our beautiful little boy. He IS kinda cute, if I do say so myself. I think we'll keep him. If for no other reason than to play with his brand new Elmo Live! :)
And as for me, my biggest predicament this Christmas is to decide which purse I shall carry first... the one my brother got me or the one my SIL got me! What to do, what to do! Both are completely AWESOME! Man, what a dilemma, eh?!
I hope and pray that your Christmas was as peaceful, loving, exciting, relaxing, and wonderful as ours was this year. God bless you all! Happy Birthday, Jesus!
