Christmas Eve

Christmas in Tacoma is pretty fun.Well Tacoma in general is pretty fun. I usually bring a friend when I'm here so I have someone to talk to that is my age and understands why I want to go up to the room every once in a while to hang out and not be accused for being anti-social. Except it's Christmas and it's just me. Tear.
But anyway, every Christmas that we are in Tacoma, my family does a puzzle on the dining room table. I am not so good at puzzles. They frustrate me a little. That would explain why I'm upstairs writing this!

I can't wait until the kids open their presents tomorrow. I think they are going to like them. We open one present on Christmas Eve. It's mostly always pajamas. Mom said that I'm not getting presents this year though because we got the wii. Which is lame because I don't play the wii and the other 2 kids play 24/7 and they ARE getting presents. Tell me what about that makes sense to you...

But I could have a different situation. I am thankful that my family is all together. We made it to Tacoma smoothly, there is food on the table, (almost) We have a church that I love and grew up in that's supportive and generous. I have a job that I LOVE and I wouldn't trade it for any other one. The list goes on...

Oh and I'm thankful for God and Jesus for giving me an excuse to be with my family right now.  ;)
(and the Holy Spirit...I don't wanna leave him out...)

Christmas spirit?

I'm walking through the church and I see all the christmas decorations around, and I'm thinking "Why are they still up?" and then I remember..."Oh yeah, It's almost Christmas. It hasn't come yet."

It's hard for me to get into the "Christmas spirit" this year. Actually I didn't have any problems getting into the Christmas spirit during Thanksgiving. And then it disappeared. I don't have any idea why. I'm listening to Christmas music, our decorations are up around the house. There is no reason why I shouldn't be in the mood!

But maybe when we get to Tacoma tomorrow, I will be. I can't wait until the kids open their presents. They are going to love them! Mom will LOVE hers, so will Dan.

Merry Christmas
