Coming out of rehab in November, I was kind of nervous about spending the holiday season sober.
This Christmas has been amazing, and it’s the first Christmas season in years that I have had alcohol free.
We spent Saturday, December 17th at my parents. Meemaw and Carter joined us! The food was delicious and the company was great! Then the kids stayed there till Wednesday. They had a blast! Here are a few pics from that day.
Robert and I had several days off together and we celebrated our anniversary (as I’ve previously written about).
We left Friday to come to Glorieta, NM (where my in-laws live)!
The kids have had a blast since we’ve been here!
Saturday they spent the day making snowmen and sledding down the small hill next to the lodge that we are staying in.
Then we made a gingerbread house and decorated “ugly Christmas sweater” cookies.
We enjoyed a quiet evening eating yummy food, playing games, sitting by the fire place, and chatting.
We left Santa some cookies, an apple, and water (my kids don’t believe anymore, but my nephew does!).
Sunday morning, we woke up to fresh snow!! It snowed most of the morning. It was beautiful and perfect.
The kids really enjoyed their Christmas presents and didn’t complain about not receiving much (it was just shoes, books, socks, and underwear along with some small stocking stuffers).
The kids enjoyed opening presents from Grandma and Grandaddy and playing with their new toys!
Then they went sledding on the big hill!
Merry Christmas from the Croslands!
