It never ceases to amaze me how quickly the Christmas season passes. I look forward to the holidays the whole year and get to watch the anticipation building in my kids for the latter part of the year and then it’s here and gone in the blink of an eye. Like everything, though, it seems to speed up as I get older…..The holidays were nice though and we got to see both sides of the family as usual. On New Year’s Eve we had two couples and some of their kids over to our house to celebrate the new year. It is always nice to be able to share a once-a-year celebration with good friends.
This year Santa was good to the kids and they were very excited as they opened up their stockings and found their Christmas treasures. Only the toys this year are just as much fun for Mum and Dad so we’ve been negotiating with the kids over who gets to play and when. I think I’m developing Carpel Tunnel Syndrome!
After many days of very (unseasonably so) warm weather, we’ve got a bit of snow on the ground today. It’s not enough to make me shovel the driveway but I’m glad that traffic is still a bit lite these days since normal traffic would probably slow to a crawl as everyone adjusts back to wintery driving.
