Today I think we'll get a tree. Nothing like waiting until the last minute. We just haven't been able to find just what we want, so I think we'll settle for anything we get at this point. I haven't started wrapping gifts, all of that to do today. Maybe some cookies, house cleaning. I have four blessings to help.
My brother, neice and nephew will be up from the cities tomorrow and they haven't ever seen our "new" house. In fact, I haven't seen my nephew since his first birthday. He's now 15.
Christmas Eve will be at my parents house for the traditional lutefisk and rice pudding with the almond in it. If you can save enough room for desert, and you dish up your rice pudding, and you get the almond, you get the almond gift. The kids love it. I'm usually too full to participate. Christmas Day will find us home for most of it. Maybe a trip down to my dh's relatives in Duluth. We put our pickle on the tree, and whoever remembers to find it, gets the pickle gift. A box of Little Debbie's works well for this.
This is our yearly schedule. Tradition, I guess. So until after Christmas, have a very blessed time. Keep Christ in the middle of it, no matter where or who you're with.
