-C.S.LewisChristmas day around here is pretty laid back. Right now we're watching a Charlie Brown Christmas and waiting for the cinnamon rolls to finish cooking. Benji had so much fun opening his presents this morning. We didn't get him a lot, and we didn't get each other anything, because we're trying to save money for our big move. Have I mentioned our big move yet? Well, we're moving across the country! My husband currently works in retail, and I babysit a couple of kids, but even still we're barely making ends meet. My family is all in Oregon, and my brother works for a tech company out there and has been telling James he could get him a job for a while now, and we recently came to the conclusion that that would be the best move for us. So we're packing our bags and heading out west. We're regular pioneers! Or something... I'll write more about all of that later, but back to Christmas...
Tomorrow we will be heading to my in-laws for a nice little Christmas vacation, I can't wait!
Last night, we let Benji open one very special present a day early.
I am so grateful for all the wonderful gifts bestowed upon us by family and friends, and especially for the most important gift of all - our savior, born in a stable so long ago.
Merry Christmas, and may we all be ever grateful for all the gifts we have received.
