One of the things that is nice about being a red headed step child is that you learn to march to the beat of your own drum. Fortunately for me my family and I all march to the same crazy beat. Our Christmas Day has been a very “Kreiling” kind of day… and I am grateful for each moment of it.
The entire day has been filled with laughs and time together. We went for a drive to pick up the dogs. We made and ate a delicious meal together. We went for a walk together. We’re now chilling on the couch and watching a movie together.
Throughout the day we’ve spent a ton of time doing one of the things we enjoy most – playing games together. Between a gift from friends and gifts for the boys from us we had quite the pile of games to play. We didn’t quite get through playing each of them today, but we had a great time playing the ones we did!
Why I appreciate most about days like this is all the time we get to spend together. I can’t imagine a better way to spend Christmas than as a family like this. Laughs, smiles, love, and togetherness. It was a perfectly Kreiling Christmas.
