My children will be traveling to Texas to spend the holidays with their dad, so in our house we are rearranging life to accommodate. So, we’ve decided to celebrate Christmas tomorrow!
Our wrapped gifts for each other have all been placed carefully underneath the tree. We have planned a big ham dinner for tomorrow afternoon and we will not be leaving the house all day. (So we can play with our new gifts.)
Tonight, we are also putting out cookies and milk for Santa, carrots for his reindeer and will be sprinkling reindeer food outside on the lawn. Then, we plan on getting up very early (like on the real Christmas Day) and tippy-toe down stairs to see if Santa came!
Sounds crazy, but if you are part of a divorced, separated or blended family, you know the feeling of wanting to offer joy and traditions which will bless the moments you are together…
