Last year Doug and I, together with the kids, went Christmas tree shopping at the Scouts christmas tree lot in Galt on the 1st of December. I remember how cold that evening was and how much fun the kids had running between the trees.
This year the kids and I will be spending Christmas in Miri together with my parents. I got my parents a new tree (not a live one lah!) and some new ornaments. I decided on a purple and silver theme for the tree after seeing a beautifully decorated tree at the shop.
I would have got the tree sooner but my father was quite sick and was hospitalized for 5 days. I wasn't sure if I wanted the house to be too festive looking while my father was lying sick in the hospital. My father is still not fully recovered but he is a lot better than he was prior to being hospitalized.
My mother has mentioned that she is not keen on celebrating Christmas on a big scale this year. She wants to only spend Christmas with the family. But I don't think that would be possible because my friends who know that I am back in Miri would surely come by for Christmas visitation.
This is the 2nd Christmas that the children and I are spending without Doug. The kids spent their 1st Christmas here in Miri without their Daddy too. We miss Doug's presence and Doug says that we will spend a belated Christmas together as a family once we get back home in Galt in January. :-)
Here's an early Christmas greeting to everyone!
