We had a delightful hike on Boxing Day, trading winter for spring temperatures. An hour and a half of walking and enjoying the beautiful woods and streams on our way to the beach. The full moon tide had the water well above normal but we were still able to enjoy a walk in the sand.
Our Christmas was in both our opinions, “The Best Christmas Ever”. Our children agreed to a no gift Christmas, except for our 5 year old grandson. It was so relaxing and enjoyable on Christmas morning.
Ever since my children were old enough to go shopping, they would each pick out a gift (that they would have wanted) and drop it in the Toys for Tots box. This year our local family owned department store was doing something different and a bit confusing (it doesn’t take much) to me. So instead, I decided to payoff someone’s layaway (yes thankfully this is still quite popular in our wonderful local store) for Christmas. I asked a sales clerk that I know to decide how to distribute it since he is always so helpful and would know who might need it the most. There were times when my children were little when this would have been a huge help to us, so this felt like the right thing to do.
I hope your Christmas was as enjoyable!
