Christmas Eve ~

Love is what's in the room with you at 
Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen...

In Norway Christmas is celebrated on the 24th.
 Yes, Christmas eve is their Christmas.  The reason I
 mention this is that Arvid is from Norway, and his family
all live in Norway.  Today is their Christmas Day.

Arvid is not crazy about Christmas...never has been, 
but I have been hoping that little by little he will get
 more into the spirit especially since we have been 
spending Christmases with my family and they
 sure know how to get into the Holiday Spirit:)

This year Christmas will be spent with my parents
 and two of my sisters and their families.  We are both 
looking forward to this this very much.  Me more than Arvid.
  Him not so much because "it's Christmas." For a few 
days just to be around family everything seems better.

The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: 
 the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other....
