Yes, it's 1am.

But it's 1am on Christmas morning :)

Another year has come and gone. It's the holiday season once again, and I can't believe it's already here. Our family just wrapped up our Christmas Eve festivities, which included the service at the church, my brother cooking steaks for our dinner and opening presents with the family.

Family which is finally all together again, in the place where we've all grown up.
Something about that feels oddly important this year.

Perhaps part of it has to do with the fact that I've found a new family of sorts at Westmont, or just the idea that I haven't been around my mom, dad, or brother in the past 4ish months. But the point is that we're all together again, spending the holidays the way I remember them, joking around at dinner and ripping open a couple presents in a fury of joy and happiness. It really made me smile.

Tomorrow brings Christmas day. I get up mid-morning, greet my family, grab a cup of coffee (or whip up a cup of tea with my new electric tea kettle! Thanks mom!) and settle in for a bit of chill time before we embark to the "Musson Family Christmas" where we'll share this special day with another family that is close to ours.

Family is such as big factor in the holidays, and I'm thankful now more than ever that I have such a great one.

Merry Christmas everyone :)
