Why is it that we wish for Christmas to get here and it's gone in the blink of an eye? We had a really special Christmas this year as my DH's son, daughter-in-law and two grandchildren came to spend the holiday with us in NJ. The drove up from Florida in the Blizzard of '09 and managed to make it here in one piece! We totally surprised my husband who had no idea that they were coming and we had a terrific time together. I managed to get off of work for a week and we spent the entire week together.
The children were able to play in the snow, we had 24 inches! They had never seen snow before so they went out and made snow angels and snow men. All in all it was a terrific holiday. They left today for the long drive back and we already miss them terribly. How many days til next Christmas???
