We just decorated the tree. We have the Christmas tunes totally blasting and my step-sister is knocking back the ‘nog. Yes, ladies and gents, it is the Christmas season and I am back in the frozen north. And it feels GOOOOOOD.
My family has this little thing where they meet for coffee a couple mornings a week to catch up. Mostly it’s just my Gramma and her brother, John, and whoever else feels like showing up that day; sometimes my dad, other days my aunt will come, it just depends on everyone’s schedules. Anyway, whenever I’m home (which feels like pretty much never!) I like to go and catch up with everyone. And let me tell you… they are characters, each and every one of them. I am addicted to my family; they are honestly hilarious sometimes. Today, my Gramma and her brother were talking about how they used to get 25 cents a week in allowance. With that quarter they would see two movies and get popcorn… haha, such a typically old person thing to talk about but I just love hearing stories like that.
Today, I promise to take lots of pictures of my hometown while I’m here! Because it is always so pretty over Christmas (it just snowed more this morning!) :) Specifically, I will take pictures of the living room, because it looks like an elf exploded in here, and the cemetary on Christmas Eve… it is simply spectacular.
