Christmas

I am a little late with the posts, but I am trying to catch up.  Christmas turned out to be such a blessing to me.  The boys don’t really like to come out to our farm because we only have 2 bedrooms.  We have 2 couches and 2 cots but our living area is one huge room with no walls and no privacy.  We also have very limited internet and cell phone coverage.  But, they ended up coming for a week.  We had so much fun.  We played hours of monopoly, checkers, and chess.  I was in heaven with them home.  It was just like it is supposed to be.  I think that is the hardest thing I am transitioning through.  I love being a mom and now that our house is so quiet it is difficult.  There is no activity with the boys and their friends coming in and out of the house.

We also had a guest from Texas come see us.  Aaron has come to Chile and Scotland so he also had to come to see us in Virginia.

We collect Christmas ornaments and with all of the places we have been lately we always pick up at least one ornament to put on our tree.  This year we put up our artificial tree and decided to go cut a fresh one down as well.  It was great and a beautiful tree.  We had so many ornaments and filled both trees up.

The tree with the lights on the left is the artificial one and we need to figure out the light problem.  The one on the right is the fresh one.  After 25 years, this was the first year we had colored lights on a tree.

Hope you all had a great holiday season.  Next, is our new pets we got…..
