Here we are, three days from Christmas, and I am *almost* ready. I still have to pick up one gift, wrap all of them, clean the house, and… who am I kidding, I have a ton of stuff to do! Luckily, Knox and I have the day off tomorrow, as well as Friday, so we have some time on our hands. Our Christmases are always a huge rush, since we shuffle back and forth between family events, but this is the first year we’ll be together as a family of three so we’re starting our own tradition: Christmas morning at our house. Each year, we have spent Christmas morning at our respective family’s house until last when Trevor came to my family’s house for Christmas morning. We left and went to his parents’ house afterwards. We warned our parents last year that it was the last time they’d have us to themselves because next year [ie: this year] we’d be at our own house.
While it’s totally a strange feeling since it’s different, we are really excited to be starting our Christmas traditions with Knox in our own home. We’ll be reading him the Christmas story on Christmas Eve, putting together toys and setting everything out, filming him opening his presents in the morning and I just cannot wait! This is such a great stage of life as a young family, getting to experience everything together for the first time.
Things will be even busier this year since we’re wrangling a baby in addition to all the normal craziness, but you know what? This is the kind of chaos that I cherish.
In case I don’t talk to you before then, have a very Merry Christmas!!
