It's been a while since I've wandered the webs of HSB. We've been here at my parents' house since Wednesday night...and it is GOOD to be home! Every other year we spend Christmas in Fort Worth-- all of my siblings and our kiddos. With five of us kids (and all being married) it becomes more difficult to have ALL of us together at one time. So this time is extra special to us. The "off" years are spent with our respective in-law's and my folks will usually come visit one of our families during this time. It's a great plan really-- every other year ALL of us being together and each family knowing where they'll spend Christmas that year without worrying about hurt feelings. We simply take turns!
I am double blessed that no matter which year it is, I always have a memorable and enjoyable time with my family. I have the best in-law's anyone could ever dream of-- honest!
Here in Fort Worth, we always stay up until 1am talking, drinking coffee, eating and playing board games. The kids try to stay up until they literally pass out where they're sitting. I think we act more like kids during this time than our own children do! This year's new game I picked up is called Mad Gab and so far it looks to be quite promising-- especially since my two younger sisters have never played it before! They have this special knack of being able to read each other's minds without saying a single word...if you've ever played a game with a team like this, you'll know exactly what I mean. I knew they were always weirdo's, but this proves it! LOL
Anyhow, I just wanted to take this time to wish all of you, my dear HSB friends a very merry CHRISTmas! May you have a wonderful time with your family and friends. I hope y'all are all able to celebrate the joyous occasion of our Saviour's birth in His Father's house.
