It's the eve of Christmas Eve. The kids are in bed. They crashed early tonight thanks to jet lag. Alison is wrapping their gifts in the dining room.
Our Christmas here will take place a day early this year. The kids will find their gifts beneath the tree when they awake in the morning, we will have a nice meal of roast chicken and all the extras. Maybe we will watch some movies together.
On Christmas day, we will load up the car, and head off to do it all again.
Having multiple celebrations of the holiday seems like a pretty sweet deal. And in any other year, I would think so. But this one is a hard one for me. It's really hard.
