Merry Christmas One and All from Marilyn Meredith

Yes, today is Christmas.

We did things a bit differently this year. We always have out family celebration on Christmas Eve. But this time we had our dinner at 1 in the afternoon, and opened present afterward. This was to accommodate granddaughter's hubby who need to take his family to another town to celebrate with family from Mexico who came to visit. Worked out well as some other family members had other places to go too. As far as hubby and I were concerned, no problem.

Early this a.m. we watched our great-grandchildren open their gifts always fun. And for dinner we had homemade tamales--one of the many pluses of having granddaughter's husband around. Plus s grandson who couldn't come yesterday arrived with his son.

Though things were different, we've had a wonderful Christmas celebration. Tell us about yours, or if you celebrated a different holiday, share that.

Our family is scattered all over other states, so my husband and I went out for Christmas dinner. Just the two of us. It was peaceful and enjoyable.

We do miss having children around at this time of year. You are lucky you have some of your kids and grandkids close by.

We are truly blessed to have so much family nearby.

We celebrated with hubby's side on Christmas Eve in the evening at his cousin's place and my side at ours on Christmas Day. Glad everyone likes to observe on different days. It's not as easy with Thanksgiving and Easter, though.
