It’s Christmas Eve, 2015! The weather says otherwise outside though, which I’m thoroughly enjoying. I much prefer warmer temps than the bitter cold we are used to having here in Ohio. It does make it hard to get into the Christmas spirit, but we are managing just fine. Right now, we’re waiting on Jake to get home from his dad’s house so we can celebrate Christmas before we head out of town in the morning. This is one of the pitfalls of divorce, splitting our time!
Ellie is patiently waiting, not really understanding that Santa is coming a little early so we can get on the road first thing in the morning. It’s tough to maneuver Santa coming before she goes to bed, but, we’re going to try it. We’ve been watching the “Santa radar” so she can see that he’s on his way. We have set out some goodies for Santa, because regardless of what time he gets here, he’ll still be hungry and thirsty! And, as being a true Carter, Ellie insisted that Santa prefer beer and brownies!! (Thanks for that Elle!) I’ll let you know how it all turns out. I’m sure once she sees her gifts, she really won’t care what time or how they got here!
We’ll be heading to visit family in the morning for the holidays. I’m very excited and blessed that we’ll be able to spend time with our family. The only ones missing will be Grace and Matt! 🙁 I’m finding as the older I get, the more I want to be around family, which I guess isn’t the worst thing!!
So, from all of us here at the Carter house, we want to wish you all a blessed Christmas. Whether you’re with family or spending some time alone, we hope it’s magical.
