Today I finally get some time to relax.
It is now a tradition I bring my family out here for the Holidays and they love it. No cold weather for them to contend with and they get to relax a bit. Only problem they like to go sight seeing and I don't really have the time until after Christmas.
Christmas Eve I cook most of the day for my family plus I bring food and pies to the senior citizens home on Christmas. Having 3 children in the house you can imagine trying to get them to bed.
Christmas Day after a few hours of sleep the children get up early,I have know idea why. We make and have breaklfast before any gift opening. After opening the gifts we get ready to go to the see the senior citizens. We have turkey,ham,cookies and pies. Next I do a show for them and they sing along. For those that their family didn't show they really appreciate it and don't feel so alone. To me it makes me feel good inside to bring some happiness to them. That I feel is what Christmas is all about,Giving to others.
Now after about 4 to 5 hours we get home and have our dinner. Next it's time to get ready for company and our little party with our friends.. It starts after 8pm and lasts until about 1am. All went well and a good time was had by all.
Even though it was a hectic day I enjoyed it all. Now I get a few days to take it easy before New Years Eve.
I hope all here have a Safe and Happy Holiday
