Here at my house it was just Me, My DH, and My Baby Boy (the 17-year old high school senior). After the wedding, Daughter #1 and her Sweetheart returned to their new home in Utah, where they spent their first Christmas together starting their own traditions. Daughter #2 and her Sweetheart went on their honeymoon in the southern Caribbean. They'll be back after their 12-day cruise tomorrow night to begin their new life together here in Orange County.
Oh, how I remember when my kids were little and other moms would say, "treasure these times, Vivian. Someday they'll grow up and then they'll leave you." I guess I thought someday wouldn't happen for many years. It's happened.
My goodness! When did I get older too?

Hopefully next year's Christmas theme will be "I'll be home for Christmas"!!!
(As you can tell, I took a break from quilting. It's time for Vivian to get busy again!)
