|Baby, it's cold outside.|
I'm taking a BOY home with me for Christmas for the first time ever. This is a big deal. This is serious. I guess it goes with the whole engaged thing (which, I guess IS quite serious). :)
I'm excited/nervous to incorporate Preston into our family Christmas. Will he have fun? Will he think it's weird that my parents buy 90% of the gifts that they give to my brother and I from Costco? (I NEVER have to buy shaving cream!!) Will he be as moved as I am by the candlelight Christmas Eve church service I attend with my mom? (Unlikely.) Will he survive the high pressured shower in the guest bathroom? Will we survive actual COLD weather??
I've been fortunate enough to have never spent a Christmas away from my family. I'm very grateful to Preston for giving me another year with them at Christmastime.
This is also Preston's first time visiting my hometown :) I'm beyond excited!!
So, I'm leaving on a jet plane!! Let's hope it makes it to the east coast...what with the end of the world and Draco Malfoy's monster storm in the midwest threatening...just getting there at all will be a Christmas miracle ;)
