Hello, everyone! I know everyone is a-bustle with the holidays, and I certainly am! I’m writing this in advance on Thursday morning so we can hit the road. We’re leaving for the 5 1/2 hour drive to Fort Worth to spend the next week and a half with my family! So exciting! We spent Christmas day with just each other last year, so it will be fun to spend Christmas day with my parents and sisters for the first time in two years. Oh, and I get to meet my new fur-baby! Yes, we have adopted a toy Australian Shepherd. He’s about 3 months old and last my mom told me, he was 8 pounds of fluff. We adopted him from some family friends in Fort Worth, so my parents have been puppy-sitting until we get down there for Christmas! So excited! His name is Casper! Short for “Caspian.” We are such NERDS!
Personally, my Christmas Eve will be spent baking (St Lucia bread, cookie dough balls, Alton Brown’s Pumpkin Pie in Gingersnap Crust…), eating at Pizza Hut and out looking at Christmas lights. Later we’ll each open one gift, and maybe we’ll watch “Santa” on the NBC 10 o’clock news weather forecast. That is, if we’re not drowning in the plethora of Christmas movies we’ve yet to watch this season.
For now, I leave you with this…
May your holiday be filled with all peace, joy, and love, and may you not forget what the season is really about. God bless you all.
Now go spend time with your loved ones!
