This is one of those days when you look back and remember when your kids were small. You remember staying up late and doing those last minute touch ups to get things under the tree. Remember the hours you spent putting stuff together and then going back to read the directions when you got stuck.
Time sure goes by fast because now they are 18 and 20 and you are not up late anymore.You just sit here drinking coffee waiting for them to get up so you an open presents. We did do our normal Christmas eve where we read the Christmas story and opened one present. My daughter came up with the idea this year that we open our stockings instead of a present. That was fun because there are a lot of small things in the stockings.
One of the things I like about this time of year are the Christmas traditions. We had one when I was growing up and I continued it on to my family. On Christmas eve we enjoy Polish food like Kielbasa and Pirogi. We will cook the kielbasa different every year. This year my wife made it into a rice casserole. It was GREAT.
I hope everyone who is reading this has a great Christmas and if you can let's say a prayer for our men and woman who serve in our armed forces. This is a tough time of year for them being away from your family this time of year. I know the feeling because I was gone over Christmas back in 1989 and it is a sad and very long day. So let us always remember these people in our prayers.
Well I hope everyone has a great day today and let us remember the reason for the season.
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL.
