|The family out for a Star Wars viewing!|
Christmas is weird for a lot of reasons. Honestly a lot of the traditions don't make a lot of sense if you think about them. We bring a tree indoors, put lights on our houses and eat too much. How did the celebration of the birth of Christ turn into this? I am not sure.
Anyway, here's the great thing about the holiday...I get to see my kids and brother and sister in law and my niece, and spend time with them and do fun things! If we had no other attachments to the Yuletide, this would be worth it to me!
Rose and I tried to raise our tots with an appreciation for God and faith and I love that we can get together and thank Him for all that we have. My kids are a blast to be around and we always have fun and there is no real drama. I think they enjoy being around us to, so that's awesome. My brother and his family are always a good time and since we live closer it's great seeing them more often!
This year we all headed out to the cinema to take in our traditional Christmas movie "The Force Awakens". It was a second viewing for all of us but my son...we had to keep spoilers at a minimum! I liked the movie better the second time around! Great film, fun for all!
We got to play Aggravation and a new game called "Exploding Kittens"...it's a card game, so no animals are harmed! We watched movies and played video games and ate too much! Now they have all gone back north and the house is quiet again. Ahhhh
