Girls Write Out
Monday, December 05, 2011
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?

My kids are on a cycle of moving in November. By the time we help them get moved it's Thanksgiving and we're all worn slap out.

For the past several years, nothing has been the same from year to year, so changes seemed to have adopted us as part of our tradition. Sigh.

The biggest difference at my house this year is that my son is back home temporarily. Daughter and son-in-law alternate seasons so every year is different as to whether they are here for Thanksgiving or Christmas.
