Instead of having our usual snowy and white Christmas.
We had ourselves a sunny and warm Christmas.
I couldn’t say I was complaining very much. One of the warmest of all time!
We opened presents.
Stuffed ourselves with delicious food and drink.
Chattered on and on around the holiday treats.
And gathered around by the couches to relax and let the food settle.
Joe surprised me with a gift card for a massage even though we already decided our gift would be heading to New Orleans for Mardis Gras this February.
“I thought we said no presents!” I said.
“Just think of it as gift that just so happens to fall on Christmas day.” He replied.
But, of course, I am very thankful!
