Good Christmas morning everyone!

The day has arrived. We have counted down all year and it is here. How surreal. My mom woke me up at 8:15 and wanted to begin opening presents. I wanted to sleep a little more. I understand though... there is lots to do today! In a mere few minutes, my mom and I will be going to see my Grandmother, who is in the retirement home, to wish her a Merry Christmas.

I still have to go to my dad's house for a few gifts and everything. I'm looking forward to that. He always surprises me with great things. I think I will drive there after I return from visiting my grandmother. A little busy, but it is CHRISTMAS!!! Wow.

I hope everyone has had a wonderful morning. I hope you all cherished the moments of waking up and gathering around the tree with your families. Despite being 28 and not having and children or anything like that, I still love waking up and spending the moment with my mom. I'm sure you are the same way with your families!

The day is here. Merry Christmas to you all! Thank you for being the best friends on the internet!

Thanks once again for a fantastic year of "counting" on each other.
And I can already sense that 2014 will be even better.
<< Is that possible, Crown? >>
You bet! As has been proven time and time again.


Have a great Christmas Season Days 43-50, Folks!
Thank you for your lead, once again, Crown. The year would not go by as fast without you. You help us wake up to Christmas and keep it in our hearts every day. May you enjoy your well-deserved break. Merry Christmas!!

Thank you for leading us through a wonderful year, from milestone to milestone! Enjoy your well-deserved rest before the 2014 thread begins!

Something special about the hum of the projector in the background while watching a movie in the dark.
Yes, it is special---it's more of an occasion than just popping something into the DVD player. And a really fine film print is so much better than even a DVD. It's something that Mr. and I really enjoy together, and it's an experience that I wish I could share with you all, because I know you'd all appreciate the Christmas rarities we have. Our Christmas Eve film evening is a very cherished tradition for me.

It's just Mr. and me here, but we still sit under the tree---on the floor!---and open our presents. It's a special time to spend together.

Merry Christmas to everyone! I'm enjoying reading about what you did for Christmas and your plans for the day, depending on what time zone you're in. We all have different places to go, different things to do, different dinners, different treats to eat, but at the same time, we're all celebrating the same season of spiritual hope, and of love of family and friends. Even as we go our separate ways today, I feel connected to each one of you. I'm looking forward to sharing Christmas Future with you throughout the year.

We'll be heading to the brother-in-law's before long. Mr.'s brother and sisters and their families will be there, along with his mother, uncle, aunts, and cousins. The youngest family member is now a sophomore in high school---it doesn't seem possible! It seems like only a few years ago that I sat with my feet tucked up on the sofa to protect myself from five little excited nieces and nephews enjoying their Christmas!
