MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU AND YOURS!
I am working part of today for one of my co-workers so that she can be home with her family. We usually open gifts and have an Italian food dinner on Christmas eve. We started this tradition when the kids were old enough to understand that WE were who gave them gifts. It helped rid us of the inevitable sleepless night waiting for Christmas morning, and meant we could sleep in.
I gained a new son on Christmas this year. My daughter agreed to marry her Marine beau.
I like him very much. They dated in high school and steadily for the past couple of years. He's a very nice young man, with the added benefit of being interested in many of the same things his new father in law to be. The kid knows how to get his foot in the door around my husband! I like him very much to.
I just wanted to pop in and say Merry Christmas to you all, and I hope that your day is filled with laughter.
