I'll be home for Christmas...Be back in 2 weeks!

Southern Living
I'll be home for Christmas.  You can count on me...   
My parents' home will not look quite this elaborate outside, however, I'm convinced the love and warmth found inside can't be matched anywhere else in this world. 
(my son and my dad)

Since we only go home twice a year, I want to make every moment count. The plan is no internet, no phones (Wait. Who am I kidding? We have teenagers. They'll probably text between opening gifts.) For the most part, we'll just be chillaxin' with the fam.  Lots of eating, laughing and gift unwrapping. 



I'm going to miss each of you! I'll try not to think about all the lovely posts during my absence!

 May you each find your little red shoes clicking all the way home.  Wherever you are, home is where the heart is.

There really is no place like home. I remember how excited I was to get home and see my mom, the tree, the smell of what she was cooking and even my presents...no matter how old I was. I am happy for you that you still get to experience that....have a wonderful time!

Hello my friend,
I'm so glad that you will be home for Christmas, have a wonderful time with your fam!
If home is where the heart is then I won't be home, I'll be gone, but still having fun with family! Little ones make it so much fun nd there will be five of them where I will be.
Have tons of fun, store up the memories, your little one and big ones are growing up so fast.
Love and Hugs, Cindy

Tammy I'm sure they don't text while opening gifts. They text after opening the gifts.
