We are going home for Christmas!
Toby was wearing a Union Jack t-shirt at day care last week and his teacher was asking him what it was. He said "a flag" ... "(from) home".
We have two homes. Our life here in America and our homeland, England where we left a part of hearts behind.
So we are looking forward to seeing family and friends over the holidays and making memories to treasure until our next visit.
Christmas probably wasn't the best time to be making a big trip overseas. It has made December quite stressful and we are going to be so tired when we get back (not good for Jeremy's colitis). Plus it is really hard to make plans to see friends when Christmas is about spending time with family.
Plus I have no idea how on earth we are going to fit all of the presents into our suitcases so they are in one piece to hand out!! That's today's job!
Oh well you live and learn and next year we will hopefully have an early Christmas in England in November and have some quiet time here in December. Thankfully we are also heading back over the ocean again at Easter next year so plenty of chances to catch up with folks.
But for now let me wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy new year.
I will not be posting anything on here for a couple of weeks so I will see you all again in 2013!
