Where there's life, there's change. This Christmas marks the first holiday with Baby Boy at college. He's not here to help pick out and cut down the Christmas tree, hang all his ornaments, and set our annoying singing snowman on the hearth.
Maybe that's why I'm dragging my feet this year. It's just not the same without the whole family. But I'd better get used to it, because in a couple years, Chad will be at college and a few years after that, Trevor.
Then it'll be just hubby and me, and we'll probably break down and buy an artificial tree. I'll count my blessings though because, for some, the holidays are much tougher due to a tragic loss this year.
Other families have had recent marriages or births in the family and are celebrating with new family members this year. What changes do this Christmas season bring to your household?
