We celebrated Christmas together this year for the first time as a little family. We stayed home on Christmas morning, opened presents and had a Christmas breakfast together (biscuits and gravy, no less).
This new tradition is quite a change from driving 500 miles and sleeping at the parents’ houses, as we’d done since we were first married. We did, however, make the 30-mile trek at lunch time to celebrate Christmas with Julie’s parents and extended family, and then had dinner with my family. It ended up being quite a (long) day. Any day with family is a good one. Good memories. Hope all of you were able to enjoy the holidays with friends and family, too.
Here are a couple pictures from the holiday exploits. You can see I work very hard to keep my hair in style.
Ryan’s favorite gift: the train table. He can play with it for hours. A parent’s dream.
