This year was our first taste of a split Christmas. The last couple of years Bill has gone and spent Christmas with his family including getting up early and being there with his kids when they open presents and then I'd see him late Christmas night and we'd open our presents from each other together. This year was different. He and I opened gifts with my family Christmas morning and then we both went and picked up his girls and spent time with his family.
It was nice because over the last few months I've spent more time with his family and it was great to be able to spend some of the holiday with them and be a part of what they do.
We had Christmas dinner with my family. We had the whole bunch there except for my Aunt and Uncle and two cousins, CJ and AJ. We missed them dearly, would've loved to have them there but with AJ still going through his Chemo and people being sick it wasn't worth risking his health. We all love each other and understand, we'd rather have him healthy.
This was baby Aiden's first Christmas. He didn't know what was going on but that's ok. His grandmother, Chris, his father's mother, her husband and Chris' brother came down and had Christmas dinner with our family.
It was really nice having everyone there and spending Christmas the way we did. Next Christmas we will switch it up. Can't wait!
I can't forget the wonderful present Bill gave me. Of course all I really want his him. He's all I really need. But to my surprise and delight I opened up this little brown box and found this. A beautiful necklace and earring set. Sapphires that are absolutely stunning! They really are gorgeous and my favorite color too. Although he can't recall that this was my favorite color he said he chose them because the color would look beautiful on me. I'll take that any day! What a great loving guy I have!
