It’s a low key day here. Most of our kiddos are off with “the other side” of the family. We don’t do a lot here. It’s simple.
Candlelight service was last night.
Today Kalissa and Craig are coming…Karl’s home. We do a present thing but not much. It’s very easy and no stress.
Lunch is our favorite meal. This year….Fajitas. Of course there are cookies and desserts.
We always have a rousing game of…The Farming Game.
It’s a lot like Monopoly but farming instead. We’ve been playing it for years. It’s become a bit of a tradition. It’s VERY competitive. (we actually just all gang up on Kalissa and try to make her lose.) You have to be here to understand.
No ugly Christmas sweaters…no fancy table settings….Complete easy and I love it. This is one of the things that’s helped me learn to enjoy Christmas. It really had not been that way when I was a young mom. This old mom has calmed down and bit and figured out that it’s MUCH better for things to be low key and for all of us to have fun than trying to make a show of things and me be miserable under the pressure.
Wherever you are in your journey today, I hope you can take a moment to take a deep breath and find some enjoyment.
For those of you dealing with family issues. Take that deep breath. A family fight honestly hurts the mom more than it hurts the sibling you are mad at. (Trust me, I know) A new day is coming and you don’t have to see the people again for a bit.
For those of you spending the day alone, I’m thinking of you… please take some time to do something you love. Find a way to celebrate the day. HUGS!!
For those of you who don’t observe Christmas, I’m so sorry that commercialism throws it all our faces. Take it as a free day and go sew something!!! Not much is better than that. The Christmas music and commercials will soon give way to jewelry commercials for Valentines Day. (Life seems to be an ever changing commercial!!)
For those of you who LOVE Christmas…good for you!! Enjoy your day!
I’m thinking of you all….
Merry Christmas to you from the Kramer Family.
