christmas 2013

Wednesday, January 01, 2014

I had a very quiet Christmas this year. My son(23)came and stayed for a week which was lovely, I was a single Mom for over 10 years when my son was four we started a tradition of going for Chinese food Christmas Eve (whenever possible) That way the house is all ready for Christmas and we have a nice evening of no cooking or clean up. This year because I worked a Christmas 3pm to 11 pm shift we backed up the days and had Chinese food on the 23 and had our turkey dinner Christmas eve.
I was a little sad to have no other family around and my husband was working, in camp.
I didn't take many pics but here are the two I did take
I give my son an ornament every year this year we only put up the small tree and every ornament was one of his special ones.

A gift I received from my hubby's niece

PS I was horribly ill the whole Christmas season

    So sorry you were sick and then had to work Christmas Day. Been there, done that so understand the mixed feelings it brings. Hope by now you are feeling better and that you have an absolutely wonderful New Year.

    It is more sad when not with as many people are there..... My niece and her husband and baby did not get to come and stay with me this xmas and it seemed quiet and still at our house too. I too did not decorate as much since they did not get to come up so I know what you mean but I am so thankful for the few I DID get to spend time with and as I get older I see and know that what I really really want for christmas is not a bigger house or more " things " but instead the things you cannot see and hold ! I am so sorry your husband had to work and was gone !
    I hope you are feeling better and doing better now !!

    Happy New YEar emoticon emoticon emoticon
