We had our usual Brindley Christmas party out at Chantry's dad's on Christmas Eve. It was a little different this year. Ladd was still in the hospital and Marcia stayed to spend Christmas with him, so they weren't there. Tom ended up back in the hospital with infection the day before Christmas, Charla and her family weren't there either.
I worked on Christmas Eve and headed over right after I was done. Chantry spent most of the day out there with the boys.
We had a yummy traditional ham dinner. Santa came...
The boys opened their traditional pjs before bed. I got them super hero pjs this year and they loved them.
I was so thankful it happened Christmas afternoon instead of Christmas Eve though, cause at least he got to celebrate, even though he said "Nobody should be sick on Christmas."
We had a very Merry Christmas. We did a lot of talking about the true meaning of Christmas and I hope the kids don't get too involved in all the commercialized stuff to remember the real reason we celebrate. So thankful for my blessing and wonderful family. When we were out at Chantry's dad's house, Santa asked him what he wanted for Christmas and he said, "For my family to be healthy." I couldn't agree more. I am sure hoping for a healthy year this year!
