Having our first Christmas in the RV was definitely a new experience. I wasn’t sure if I was even going to decorate as none of the kids would be around, but in the end I put up a small tree and set out a few decorations that I had kept. When we went to Florida in November we took two of the grandkids gifts then and let their Momma keep them hidden until now.
We got to Skype with them last night so we could watch them open up their gifts. My daughter needs lots of practice in how to hold a phone steady. Being there in person would have been a much better experience, but since that wasn’t possible, at least we got to see them with their stuff.
Today I was able to spend a couple of hours with the youngest grandson, who is only 5 months old, and it was great to just be able to see him and hold him. He had no idea what all the fuss was about opening gifts, but it was still a joy just to have him in my arms.
It’s our first married Christmas and our first Christmas in the RV!!!
