Christmas Break?

They must call it a "break" because it's a break for teachers (and they deserve it). I have a new respect for teachers and what they do since I have been volunteering at the school but that is a post for a different day.

We stayed busy everyday. We caught up with friends we hadn't seen in a while (the 23rd), had my family over for Christmas Eve, went to visit Bill's family in Mingo Junction for Christmas, had an after Christmas party at my uncles house, unfortunately, had a funeral back in Mingo Junction (the 27th), spent the night in West Virginia to see the lights at Oglebay (the 28th and 29th), had our pastor and his family over (the 30th), actually let all the kids stay up for New Years with the Millers, did some shopping on the 1st and 2nd (got some great deals), and then had adult game night with the Millers (the 3rd).

I tell you all this not because I am complaining because I enjoyed every minute of our "break." Being busy is not a bad thing when you spend it with people you enjoy to be around. I just have not been able to blog and as soon as I get my camera to download I will post some pictures and fill you in on the details of our busyness.

often times, Christmas is no 'break' at all, just hustle and bustle of the Season. :-) ... but yes, it is full of very many activities and moments, that get cherished for a lifetime by all who experienced them, young and old alike.

God bless you and here's to 2010 becoming more sweet memories for later.
