Merry Christmas Eve!

Today is one of my family’s holiday parties. My dad’s side of the family is very big, so there’s only one or two times a year when everyone gets together. For the most part, we don’t see each other all that often.

My favorite part of the party is watching all the children interact. I love seeing them play with each other before they open gifts. Once the gifts are opened, the interactions are less fun, because the kids are more concentrated on their cool new toys and candy. Funny how the giving and receiving of gifts is probably my least favorite part of the holidays.

For me, the holidays really are all about family and spending time with those I love. I hope my children share this attitude when they get older. For now, though, it’s all about the gifts…

Merry Christmas Eve!
