Christmas is Over!

You can probably tell by the title of the post that I'm kind of glad Christmas is over. I love giving gifts to my family and friends and I try to make them personal. But all of the other stuff that goes with it is such a pain..getting everthing wrapped, making sure we've got the right gifts for the right trip, etc.

This year's Christmas was in three locations, as it has been for the last several years. We spent Christmas Eve Eve with my brother's family and my father and his fiance. Because we had to be at our church all day on Christmas Eve and my SIL wanted to spend Christmas Eve at her church, we came home that evening. Christmas Eve was at church from 9:30 AM until 12:30 AM after four services. Then on Christmas Day, we went to the in-laws in yet another town. A lot of driving, a lot of eating, a lot of stress. I'm glad it's over and I'm back at work.

That's not to say that I didn't enjoy, I was very glad to see all of my family. I just wish it could all be at our house once in a while. But this does make it all worth it:
