This Christmas wasn't anything spectacular.
But it wasn't a disappointment either.
How could it be? I have a healthy happy family.
It started with Christmas eve at my grandmas house.
Since the beginning of time, ok the beginning of my time, I have had Christmas eve at my grandmas house. It is a tiny little house. But it is filled with love and family.
My sister drove several hours to be here and celebrate with us and it's a good thing that she did.
My dad gave my nephew a present he could only dream of.
Not exactly a musical savant, he clearly has a talent.
Once the guitar landed in his hands it didn't leave for the rest of the evening.
My dad shares his enjoyment of music and played a few songs for us all on his own guitar.
The following day we spent at my brother and sister in laws.
They had already received their present in the form of an extremely over weight and loving yellow Lab named Abby.
It's a long story but they saved one boy and one dogs heart by taking her in.
What happened next was excruciatingly sweet.....
My husbands brother fell in love with one big fat Labrador and she in love with him.
It was a Christmas miracle.
