I have to say that we had a very pleasant Christmas. Mostly, I thought about this being our last Christmas where we are all together. But, maybe not. A lot can change in a year. So, I savored every moment. On Christmas Eve, the girls made chocolate covered marshmallows for hot-chocolate dipping. They enjoyed that very much.
Considering we are a family of 8, things were quite calm at our house. The girls are generally mellow. When there is chaos in our home, it is usually because of Seth; but that is a whole 'nother post.
So, what do you get your son who needs nothing and is ready to be a Marine? A money box!
And keeping with our new-found tradition, the gang headed out for a movie. The guys and Jordan saw Tin Tin, which they really liked. Jack received the books as a Christmas gift from Grandma. I think the movie pricked his interest to read. The girls and I stayed home, since there was not an appropriate movie for the younger ones. Once I got them to bed, I stayed up too late watching Emma.
Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri
