This was a very odd holiday season for us. Not bad, just weird. Last year, I had a house full for holiday dinners. This year, it was just Emma and I. Everyone had someplace else they needed to be this year.
Emma has been fighting a cold, and the weather has been just horrible, so it really turned out for the best. We baked cookies, made a great dinner, played cards, listened to Christmas music, and just enjoyed each other’s company.
We ate when we got around to it, like 6:30. No stress, no rush.
The turkey turned out wonderful. My daughter says my stuffing is amazing. If you have a teenager, you know amazing is like the highest rating.
I treasure every moment like these. She’s getting older, and these moments will become fewer and farther between. But what really warms my heart is that she treasures these times too. I must have done something right.
So while our Christmas wasn’t big and festive, it was loving and warm, and memorable in it’s own way.
I hope your celebration was great too.
