Husband's family gathered at our house for Christmas Party #1: 23 people in all! We don't have a huge house, so it was a tight fit... but was cozy and fun and FULL of laughter. We had so much fun.
Party #2 was much quieter, with only six people in attendance, but very special and fun, too. Daughter and Son may not see each other for a while, depending on what happens with Son's job search in another country! He is happy and full of hope about his new prospects, therefore I am happy for him and squashing my sad feelings about him potentially living so far away. One day at a time, right?
One more Christmas party to go, then we can look ahead to the New Year and hope for Happiness and Good Health for all.
