You mean it's over??? No way! You mean all that planning, decorating, shopping, cooking, shopping, wrapping, shopping, visiting, cleaning, and unwrapping that took me weeks to accomplish ended in one day???? Doesn't seem possible.
For the 40 years that my husband and I have been married we've spent our Christmas on the road. We always pack up on Christmas Eve and drive about an hour and a half to my mother's to celebrate with my large family. We return home that night, get up early Christmas morning to prepare for my son's family coming over for breakfast. Then we open gifts (in a flurry of paper & ribbons & squeals of delight). We quickly clean up the trash, get dressed, and head back to our previous day's destination, driving another hour and a half to have Christmas with hubby's family. Then we drive back home to collapse on the sofa until we have to force ourselves up and off to bed! Whew!!! I'm exhausted!
But all the planning, all the spending, all the everything is worth it to see this....

His first "real" gun...yes, we are a hunting family!
Hope everyone had a wonderful day. I plan to spend the next 24 hours doing absolutely NOTHING.
