My in-laws had their presents here way before I was even done shopping, and today the elusive gift basket they got me was finally received. I am not a big of Fed Ex right now, but at least the product arrived. It's a huge basket filled with wine, godiva chocolates, truffles, and lots of other good stuff. After the last few months I have had, it was nice to receive.
The Santa presents are ready to be put out--do you wrap yours or just put them out? We used to wrap them, but now I just put them out for them to play with once they wake up.
Knock on wood, even Abbie, has never gotten up early on Christmas morning. I probably just jinxed that though.
Tonight I went to dinner with my friend Erin, then to the movies, and out for a drink. It was nice to get out of the house sans children for once, before the holiday chaos ensues. Plus it was low key, which is just what I needed, since we are both hitting crossfit in the morning. We are doing the "Twelve Days of Christmas".......I just checked the website, and this workout will makeup for us not working out Christmas Day. Ouch!
So tonight I go to bed happy, with a lot less to worry about over the next 48 hours than I thought. I do have to hit the commissary, but Abs and Junior like to help, so hopefully it won't be too bad.
I'm trying to come up with some snack foods to serve on Christmas day before our DFAC dinner. Any suggestions? I am really craving brie right now, so that will have to be on the list.
While Christmas is never the same when Gunner is gone, I am glad that I have a husband that loves me unconditionally, treasures his children, and can still make me smile from halfway around the world. Life is good.
