We had our first big Christmas yesterday. I think we had 30-40 people there. However, they forgot about beverages other than coffee. Good thing we brought water bottles to refill.
I lack photos today, we were so busy yesterday. The grands opened their gifts and were very happy. Our daughter (with the grands) is married to a guy with two of his own, so we gifted 4 grands.
Today baking officially starts. However, it starts with a trip to the grocery store. We had planned on going last night, but we were zonked. Literally so tired. I'm glad we slept in.
Last year we still had Jesse with us. I miss him so much. I know there is nothing we can do about a visit, so I may just get photos printed and put on the wall. I pray every day we'll get to see him again. This was a photo taken on Christmas day last year. Hubby is in the background, sitting on a lawn chair, stoking the fire (we hosted last year and brought in all the lawn chairs).
I hope you are all enjoying the days before Christmas. I love Christmas time and it's flying by way too fast.
