A different but still blessed Christmas

This Christmas certainly was a different one. With my family still adjusting to holidays without my Grandmother and on a much tighter budget and Aaron's family spread out for the holiday season this year things were certainly different. Another wrench in "normal" plans was the snow storm that hit just days before Christmas.
Despite all of the unusual circumstances this year our first Christmas together was wonderful. We celebrated Christmas eve with my dad's family, a miracle in itself considering my Poppa Bone's recent surgery. Christmas day was celebrated here at our house with my immediate family. We really relaxed and enjoyed each other. The day after Christmas my family did leave the house to go to Asheville to eat out and see a movie. After the movie we all stayed up until it was time for my dad to take my brother to the airport. Sunday held yet another Christmas celebration with Sean, Christal and Cooper. We certainly are blessed with amazing family and friends!!
One special highlight of our Christmas week was Zach coming up from Texas. He came on Tuesday and left very early Sunday morning. Every day while he was here we played games and stayed up WAY later than normal. It was great to soak in every moment and to spend time relaxing instead of running around.
