It is officially Christmas in my book. Tonight I am heading to Edmond to spend the holiday with my family. Kody is coming too, but after a quick trip to Waynoka. Since we have been married the holidays have always been difficult. We would love to get to see everyone, but it can't be done every year. This year we compromised and Kody is going to Waynoka with his family on Christmas Eve (and then driving to Edmond to be with me that evening and Christmas). I am going to Edmond so I can be with my sister. I hardly ever see Robin anymore, so when she is home I try to spend as much time with her as possible. We always have a good time together and if you know my sister then you know that it is almost impossible to not be entertained by her.
Kody's brother and wife (Kasey and Ashley) are leaving for their honeymoon tomorrow (lucky) so they will not be in Waynoka either. It was really important to both of us that Kody gets to be there this year because who knows where we will be next Christmas!! (Fingers crossed...Tulsa). The most important thing is that both of us get to spend time with those we don't see very often and each other. This year we made a great plan with no arguments. Seriously, that has never happened. I can't begin to explain how nice it is to not be stressed out trying to be everywhere. This is good practice because I can only imagine what schedules will be like during residency...unpredictable!
I hope everyone has safe travels. Enjoy the snow if you get any. Tell your family you love them and give Santa a big hug!
