We fly home tomorrow to see both families! I've been waiting so long for this... sure we saw my side of the family in September, and we spent a two weeks back home at the beginning of August... but there is just something special with being able to celebrate Christmas with family. We are only staying a week, which means we fly back the day after Christmas, but I'm not complaining since we did find a pretty good deal on our tickets. I greatly look forward to the day when we move home and we can see family and friends whenever we want :)
Sadly, the ornaments are now all taken down, along with the rest of the Christmas decorations. To reduce a fire hazard of a live tree sitting in our apartment for a week without water, we decided it was best to take it down before our trip home. Without the tree up, I decided just to go ahead and take everything down. At least when we come back, the apartment will be clean so I can spend the rest of Christmas vacation creating and sewing!
I hope you have a wonderful Christmas season and are able to spend lots of time with family and friends!
