I'll be home for Christmas....except not so much.



As mentioned yesterday, we're not going home for Christmas.

I've cried about this more than I care to admit, but we will miss our families very much this year.

So we've decided that we're going to keep parts of traditions and add a couple of our own.

On Christmas Eve Eve, (yes I said it, therefore it is!) we're going shopping with the rest of the crazy people because it should be fun to see everyone act like a fool! 

On Christmas Eve, we're going to read the Christmas story out of Luke and Twas the Night Before Christmas. I'm not sure what meal I'll make yet. I think we may go look for Christmas lights too.

On Christmas Day, we're having a Mexican food smorgasbord including stuff for tacos, nachos and taco cal-zone with all the trimmings.We'll also have snack foods including sausage dip, guacamole, and salsa. We'll watch the Disney parade, open a few gifts and then Christmas night we're gonna head to the movies.

We both have realized that while the reason for the season is Jesus, the way Jesus came into this world was through a family. He had a mom and a dad on earth just like every other person does. Since we both come from very wonderful families it is going to be hard to be away from them.

I hope that if you have the privilege of being with your families this holiday season that you will not take the opportunity lightly.

It is a wonderful thing to be with family.

Hope this finds you well.

Happy Christmas!

So sorry that you won't get to go home. I think a few (or many) tears are appropriate.

Awww...I wish we lived closer so you could come hang with my family. I think your plans sound as perfect as possible.

I'm pretty sure that tears are falling from my eyes. I hate so much that you aren't able to come home. I know exactly how you feel being so far away. Words aren't even enough. I love you Sam (and Brandon) hang in there. If I know Lori and Butch they'll be up sooner than you think.

I know it won't be the same without your family, but I hope you can make it special in your own way!

This Christmas is the first I'll spend away from my family. This song has made me cry every time I've heard it this season!

Hi y'all! The name's Samantha. You can call me Sam if you like. I am a lover to a boy I met at Falls Creek in the summer of 2005, that is a student of Jesus, a Sooner born and Sooner bred and when I die I'll be Sooner dead, Democrat by party, blonde to the core, and oldies but goodies kind of girl.
