christmas. twenty fifteen

December 24 2015. 001 (70)

as grumpy as i was about christmas this year, i had to get over it

and myself

with people coming and going, we actually ended up celebrating four christmases

yes

four

two in west virginia and two in asheville

and they were all wonderful in their own way

however, i think the older i get, the more filled with anxiety i become about the holidays

so maybe a future cruise/trip is in my future during that time

except there is Lily

miss christmas herself

maybe when i’m sixty?

this was our christmas eve day

Lily and Adelaide spent two days wrapping presents. older toys that were in the toy basket in the girls room as well as shells that were about in the house. they wrapped gifts for everyone
