Raising a Blended Family

How the rest of Christmas went

on January 5, 2015

So besides telling my family on Christmas, everything else about their visit went great as well and the actual day of Christmas was a blast. I love it when they are here visiting; it fills in the blank spots left by the geographical distance between us and makes me feel completely whole for the short time they’re here. I miss living near them!

We made the most of the time they were here, going to museums, hiking in the frozen winter landscape, seeing Christmas lights, and just hanging out doing nothing together like families do. We bought and played Cards Against Humanity (it’s like a dirty version of Apples to Apples, a little awkward with parents and your little brother but hilarious nonetheless), watched movies, and my family spent lots and lots of time playing with the kids. My mom was absolutely enchanted with both grandkids, and it felt good to see how very loved they were and to watch them all interact.

Saying goodbye was a hard thing to do but it had to be done. Shorty and I are dreaming of the day we can move back to my home state of California and be near family;hopefully sometime in the next few years but until then, we’ll just keep on making the most of the times we see our family, one week at a time.

And now, pictures:
