It was a strange Christmas season for us. It just didn't seem like Christmas this year. Matt worked Christmas week so our plan was to celebrate Christmas during the week of New Year's with my family in Florida. So Christmas sort of came and went and was over without us celebrating and then our attempt to re-create Christmas in Florida didn't really work. It just caused a lot of stress. Live and learn, I guess.
We spent our Memphis Christmas Eve at the Borst's house. We mixed our Christmas Eve traditions with theirs and had an nice evening with lots of food and laughter. They have 2 little girls. When we arrived I set Willa down and she crawled off with the girls to their bedrooms. I stood there and wasn't sure what to do. It was the first time she went off to play out of my sight. It's so fun to see Willa play with other kids.
At the last minute, I decided to change my and Willa's plane ticket so we could fly to Florida early. Matt had to work Christmas night and all weekend. So we spent Christmas day flying to Florida. It was a fabulous day to fly. The Memphis airport was EMPTY. I was the only passenger going through security. The security guard actually put all of my stuff on the belt for me.
We arrived in Florida in the afternoon. My parents picked us up and we headed to my grandparents house for a big feast. It was just the 6 of us, but we ate like kings.
