Shane and I had a wonderful Christmas just the two of us here in Grants Pass. Shane had to work in the afternoon on Christmas and I was all by my lonesome doing nothing. The day after Christmas we drove to Portland to be with my family and that night we made it into town just in time to meet my siblings at Red Robbin and gather with old friends. We went to my cousins baby blessing on Sunday and then a family dinner at my brothers home that evening. It was fun seeing the kids and seeing how much they have grown. My sister Nichol and I hit the sales on Monday and then Shane and I drove back home Tuesday afternoon. It's always so sad when the holidays are over, but then I think about next year and it gives me something to look forward to. My house was torn apart last Saturday putting away Christmas, well actually it's still torn apart. Little by little and back to reality.
