    This year we'll be spending time with the oldest son, his wife and two of our grand kids.

    We changed the way be celebrate Christmas several years ago. For us and our 6 kids it is all about spending family time together. We no longer buy gifts for each other. We do buy for the young grand kids of course. Our kids love that we don't have to shop for each other, as there is no stress on what to get someone for Christmas. Christmas has become so materialistic (just my opinion). If the misses and I want something during the year we get it, and same for treating our kids, we don't wait until Christmas.

    I guess you could sum this up by saying we put the joy back in Christmas.:)

    It is definitely family time for us. My two kids are still in school. We always do Christmas Eve service at our church and come home and then the kids get to open one present each before it is off to bed. Sometime before Christmas day we watch "It's a Wonderful Life" together. One of my favorite movies. That is a tradition my wife and started long before the kiddos came along. It helps to put things back into perspective. Hoping for a white Christmas just as long as it comes before Christmas I plow snow for the state and really don't want to work on Christmas Eve or day. Hope everyone has a blessed day.
