Our Christmas tree lights up the living area of our home with some unwrapped presents still sitting under the tree. The leftovers from our holiday family celebrations. We had a nice, quiet and family focused Christmas. You may have seen me posting some of our #FamilyChristmas photos on Instagram

We celebrated our own traditional family Christmas Eve dinner with my mom and step dad. We enjoyed a great turkey and all the fixings, cooked by me. Gifts were exchanged and laughs were had. On Christmas Day it was more relaxed with just my dad (aka Grandpa) over for a short visit. The rest of the day we spent together just enjoying the day and enjoying the quiet we got from the kids who were busy with what Christmas brought them. 

Although it isn't the same as when we were growing up, or at least  how I remember it, I am glad we have who we do have in our lives to celebrate the special moments with our family. The moments we only get to do once before our kids grow before our eyes. That's the best part of Christmas to me. Seeing my loved ones together and happy. 

Looking back on 2014, I can say it was overall a fair year. We had our share of ups and downs but we survived. We may not be any richer but we are healthy and we are together. That I am grateful for every day.

Into the new year we go with new goals, hopes and dreams to come. However you celebrate the rest of the holiday season, we wish you all health, wealth and above all happiness in all you do. 

Cheers! See you in the new year!
