When we got home from Dad's funeral on Saturday night, I knew I was never going to pull of Christmas, so my dear friend Soraya came to save the day. She flew in Sunday and helped me get the tree decorated and the house put together. She also helped put me together before she left as I was an emotional mess still.
We enjoyed our quiet Christmas. We gave the kids experiences this year versus presents. They were too thrilled at first but got behind it later. I feel they have so much stuff and it only holds their attention for a brief period of time. This way they have an experience and can hold the memory forever. They will be going to a parachute/fly school. I am envious for sure. They also got gift cards to Dave and Busters so they could get their electronic fix and leave it there.
I hope it was a Merry and insightful Christmas for all.
