A Great Relaxing Holiday

Filed under: Random — ambercouric @ 4:52 pm

Hope everyone had a great holiday.  We had a nice quite couple of days.  My husband has said at least three times that this was the best Christmas.  This was by far the simplest Christmas we have ever spent.  We all did volunteer work, Ashby served a holiday meal at the homeless shelter.  Kennedy participated in the soup kitchen’s Christmas party for the children.  He was able to see the excitement of the children receiving the hats, mittens and socks he collected for the Giving Tree.  We also had the opportunity to help a local family with food.

DH’s parents came over on Christmas Day and his mother had cooked all of the children’s favorite foods.  Which means we had double food.  We will be eating leftovers for days.  My FIL has been sick and they weren’t sure they were up for a lot of company.  So they came by here for a few minutes.

The only downside to the holiday was our new puppy developed a rash and had to go to the vet this morning.  She was given some medicine and should be fine in a few days. 

I am going to spend the next few hours catching up on reading all the PF blogs.  Hopefully, by next week, I’ll have several great new blogs added to my blogroll.



  1. glad you had a nice holiday! Ours was pretty nice too — we usually have to go 3 or 4 places on Christmas Day – but we stayed home to do our own thing this year. It was wonderful! We actually had our own dinner & then headed out for a few runs of skiing… I can’t rememeber the last time we went skiing on Christmas Day! (teenager maybe?!?!)

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. That is a wonderful idea, The Giving Tree. I am glad that your family had a wonderful Christmas. I wish I knew of charitable events in our area, like the ones your family participated in.

    We did donate money to the local city’s food drive and we bought a senior citizen his breakfast on Christmas Eve. But, I still feel I could have done more. With 2009, I do want to include becoming more charitable in our local community. Thank you for the inspiration.

  4. Glad you had a good holiday. I always wanted to do that soup kitchen thing with my son but we have nothing like that in our tiny town. What a wonderful lesson to share with your children.
