We have had many boxes arriving at our door over the past week keeping the UPS man and the Post Lady very busy. BUT the most anticipated deliveries will be hitting the doorstep over the next 36 hours. BOTH sets of grandparents are due to arrive to spend a very Merry Christmas at our home. I really can't even put into words how excited we are for this opportunity. The girls have been talking about it since it got organized over a month ago. We feel extremely fortunate that
- The grandparents get along well and are willing to "share" their holiday time with the other
- They are making it extremely easy on us, not having to travel away from home or worry about how we are dividing our time between families
- We will be able to have a warm and relaxing Christmas day, staying in our p.j.'s as long as we want and leisurely wasting the day away. In fact, I have decided that we are postponing our formal dinner for the day after Christmas. Instead, we will have a large brunch with homemade cinnamon rolls and then graze our way through the rest of the day with veggie, meat and cheese trays; finger foods and Christmas treats. This way nobody feels tied to a timeline or forced into the kitchen to cook or clean.
- And most of all we will enjoy quality family time. I am predicting lots of game playing, puzzle building and book reading over the next 4 days.
We hope you all have a Very Merry Christmas and are able to spend it with those that you love. And we hope that you are able to relax and ENJOY your time and not feel rushed or stressed by the little things that sometimes get in the way of the enjoyment!!!
Merry Christmas to All!!
