Life goes by too fast. At Christmas time, it seems to go even faster. We've kids and grandkids all around the country and we've been rushing around trying to get all the Christmas shopping done. Nothing better than seeing those happy faces on Christmas morning.
The hard part is we're only going to see a few of them this year. Our son Ryan's family in Oregon will be missed this year, it is just impossible to get there this Christmas, so we had to hurry up, buy the gifts, wrap them and ship them out UPS ($79 - Ouch!). For Corey and DIL Amanda up in New Jersey, we'll have to see when they might be able to come down to Virginia, Amanda's mom and dad live near us so we hope to "double up". Heather's family is going to be the "lucky" ones this year, we're driving down to their home in South Carolina for Christmas weekend.
We look forward to our upcoming fulltime lifestyle where we'll be able to split up our time and see the kids all over the country more often, we'll still have to rotate some of the holidays and birthdays, but that will be half the fun of it. And we won't have the daily grind of work to compete (get in the way) with. :c)
Now back to wrapping, where did I put the tape this time???
