Now that Ava is getting older, I think it's important for her to wake up in her own bed on Christmas morning-- especially if Santa is going to visit. He can't be expected to load all of his gear to Grandma's house every year, only to load it all back (Yes. I'm getting lazy.).
With that said, we will soon have to decide if this year will be our first year (in my entire life) that I will not spend Christmas with my family (in good ol' Q-Town). It makes me kind of sad to think of being without them. On the other hand, though, it makes me a teency bit excited for my little family to start our own traditions; I'm already thinking of fun things I could make for breakfast (snowman pancakes for the kids, Mimosas for Mom & Dad) and what kinds of things we'll do all day long, just the 4 of us. If it's anything like the way we spend Christmas Day in Q-Town, we'll watch "A Christmas Story" 12 frigging times and start drinking around noon. Happy Birthday Sweet Baby Jesus!
While I'm on the subject of the holidays, I thought I would give you a preview of our Christmas card for this year.
