We celebrate "Little Christmas" so the kids were up early to open their stockings before Hubby went off to work. After the festivities and breakfast, I baked - chocolate chip cookies, banana bread & brownies, cooked - lasagna, and did a load of laundry, all before 9:30am. We ventured out to the mall for lunch and some last minute shopping - mission accomplished!
This afternoon we attended Christmas Eve service at church and then went to the cemetery to visit Hubby's mom whose birthday is today. Now we're all settled back in for the evening, ready to delve into the lasagna and sample some desserts.
I'm very thankful that I've been able to do as much as I have and enjoy this Christmas, considering what the last five months have been like for me. My side effects from chemo still linger and sometimes the fatigue is overwhelming, but I am full of the holiday spirit and I can't wait to celebrate Christmas day with my family tomorrow.
