For the first time in years, M&M won't be able to make it for Christmas. They're snowed in. Don't you feel sorry for them? Peace, quiet, sleeping in their own bed on Christmas Eve, and waking up to each other and this boring view from their living room window Christmas morning - how sad! ;)
My youngest daughter and grandson moved back to the east coast earlier this year and will be spending Christmas there.
My stepdaughters are spending Christmas together in sunny California.
And my niece and her husband will be at home a couple of states west of here, enjoying their brand new baby girl.
We'll miss them all this Christmas. Together or apart, we're glad they're all warm and safe at their Christmas destinations, whether snowed in at home or visiting other family members, not sleeping at the airport or trying to drive long distances in the sleet, snow and ice we've experienced in wave after wave this cold midwest December.
We're looking forward to celebrating tomorrow with the Lawn Man's mother and sister and my oldest two daughters with their significant others. The Lawn Man is planning a feast of ginormous proportions. His holiday dinners are legendary, and this Christmas will be no exception. I've been working on some baked goodies and appetizers, and we'll be doing lots of prep work today getting ready for tomorrow's celebration.
Wherever your loved ones are geographically, may you all enjoy a safe, peaceful, and Very Merry Christmas!
