The Sixth Day of Christmas

 Keeler Christmas Kickoff

Today, Keeler Christmas kicks off.  Since we split holidays with families, Christmas Day this year was with the Hamricks, so we spent that week leading into Christmas and the holidays with them.  This week has been back down in Buna with the Keeler family.  We've been in since Sunday evening and have been enjoying relaxing here and letting the kids play.  Taylor will get in from Austin tonight and will complete the family. 

We'll start tonight with a little fried shrimp at Granny Sheppard's.  

That will let us have our gift exchange tomorrow and celebrate a few things together.  We'll have Christmas, New Year's, and then we'll celebrate a nephew's birthday.  We take the time when we can when we're all together.

Another part of why Christmas has always been a season, at least while I've been married.  We've had Christmas as early as the 17th, and as late as January 15.  A reminder that while the date itself is a great moment to pause and reflect, to celebrate and enjoy, that same spirit can occur any day.  If home is where the heart is, the holidays are similar.

I hope this season has been enjoyable, whenever you have been able to celebrate and in whatever form it took.  Whether in person or virtual, whether on the day or whenever you could, the best of the season to you and yours.
