Christmas Day

Posted by barb on Dec 25, 2003 in Uncategorized |

We started with a quiet day, opening stockings filled by Santa Claus overnight. Santa left me a fun kirigami calendar, a Celtic knot barrette, and some bath gels. I must have been a good girl this year 🙂

Then we prepared the house to leave for a week. We were heading to Minnesota to spend some time with my family. This was when Andrew was supposed to meet my grandparents, but he met farm grandma earlier this month after grandpa died.

Our flight didn’t leave until 5 PM, so we didn’t have to leave the house until about 3 PM — it was the first time I actually planned well for a flight. Usually I book a 9 AM flight, thinking that it’s not too early, but I always forget that I have to arrive at the airport 2 hours earlier than the flight, plus parking time, plus time to get from the parking lot to the terminal. So then my nice, leisurely 9 AM flight turns into a gruelling 6 AM leave-time.

It was a quiet flight, and Mom and Dad were waiting for us at baggage class when we got there. We just kicked around home until bed time. Overall, a pretty good Christmas.
