That’s how many years it’s been since I’ve been home for Christmas. And this year that changes!! I cannot contain my excitement. When John and I got together back in 2003 we started doing Christmas with his family. It was perfectly fine with me. Christmas is a huge deal in his family. He definitely changed the meaning of Christmas for me. My parents had also stopped hosting since they moved. So everything just kind fell into place.
In 2008 we moved to Florida. So from then on we did Christmas by ourselves. Last year John’s mom and step dad came. It was great to have family around for the holidays. This year John really wanted to go home so we could spend Christmas with our families before the boys get too old. We made plans and it’s all happening!
It will be so great to see all of my extended family. The last time I saw everyone was under very sad circumstances. This time it will happy. I love when the boys get to spend time with their cousins. I grew up with my cousins and they were more like siblings. We always have such a great time. I’ve done this before but I’ll share pictures from Christmas past.
It’s so much fun to look back through the years. The only year I can’t find is 2004. Do you have any big plans this year?
