It's about time.

Many of you can relate to Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" and what we do to follow our dreams.

Busy Christmas Day

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

We both hope that everyone reading our blog enjoyed your Christmas Day Celebration with family, friends or those that are close to you at this time. We also hope you enjoyed the Krackers link Special Redneck Christmas Carol in yesterday’s post if not it’s still in place for your enjoyment.
Mother Nature decided last night to dust the landscape giving many what they were praying for a White Christmas.  Kathy and I only got up at 6:00 this morning to get ready for our usual Christmas run. Normally we start earlier on Christmas because we wait until morning to load the truck before heading out.

After picking up coffee at Tim Horton’s we went over to Karen and Greg’s to help start off their celebrations. Once their family had opened gifts from one another they then got to open the gifts from grandma and grandpa. During this whole time grandpa is trying to photograph all that is happening for prosperity’s sake. Kathy and I were also rewarded for just being ourselves and loving everyone equally.
Cameron and Matthew thought the day was perfect.
Heading back to the apartment we reload the truck for the second time today and head out to Amherstburg to Kevin and Melissa’s. Again grandpa got back into the photographing mode as the boys start opening the gifts from grandma and grandpa. They are always ecstatic with everything they receive and are always greatful. Again Kathy and I are shown generosity for being ourselves.

Melissa admitted to enlarging the picture in our blog until she
read their name on the package. 
By early afternoon we were back at the apartment for a little R&R before returning to Karen and Greg’s where the whole family got together to celebrate Christmas dinner together. This also meant loading the truck for the third time today with all the baked goods we had produced earlier this week so that it could be shared for this coming meal. Now that all the gifts have been opened and the day was winding down it was nice just to enjoy each other’s company and conversations together as we ate and enjoyed a very festive supper.  
Since the big day has arrived that children of all ages have been waiting for I will no longer be counting down to Christmas this year and it’s probably way too early to start doing it for next year at this point. Besides most of us still haven’t finished digesting the meals we had today but that doesn’t mean that Kathy and I can’t start another countdown. We are setting a tentative date of January 7th for our departure to Florida which is only 14 days away.
Sully just can't figure what all the fuss is about.
