The weather played a huge part in it for all of us. I loved it when the snow came. Our whole family enjoyed the weather, then as it dragged on, it became very clear that it was causing major issues and we may not all be getting together with our extended family for the big day. The weather was just too unpredictable! Did you know that the last time we had a white Christmas was in 1938 and it was only 3 inches, we had like 12-14 inches this year!
Christmas Day was fun. We had our feast. Which I might add, was cooked entirely by myself. Now if you know how our house runs that is an unusual occurance. Steve was banned from the kitchen, I was determine to cook the entire thing by myself! It was great! I missed my other family, we haven't ever been without them on the holidays, we've always been with others, our families. But again, God is teaching us, he has a reason. We had a great time, just our family, just our boys, our first Christmas together as just us, and it was perfect!
I let him carve the turkey though! :)
