We were a bit late in getting our tree this year, because we all had the flu and none of us felt like doing much of anything. We knew the flu was going around the school, then Isaac and Abbi both ended up having it at around the same time. I went to stay with Hannah in hopes that I wouldn't catch it, but I ended up coming home feeling sick. It took us a couple of weeks to get over, but we were finally rid of it and were able to enjoy the rest of the holiday season.
Christmas dinners were a little different this year. Usually we do Christmas Eve at my Nanna's, then Christmas Day at the church with Granny and family. This year, my Aunt Linda had to work Christmas Eve, so we just did both dinners on Christmas Day. Overall I think it was a little better this way, because I only had one night of cooking to do, and we got both dinners done in one day. Also, we were able to have Christmas Eve free to spend with just the 5 of us.
As usual, the kids were spoiled with presents (especially Abbi lol). But the good thing is they truly appreciate it and don't act spoiled (most of the time).
We are all looking forward to a new year and some exciting things to come! :)
