Christmas Eve was a rather subdued affair this year with Dad being gone.
We all got together and celebrated but it seemed like so many of us were just going though the motions, trying to be "happy" because it was the holidays.
I imagine about lot of us were thinking about the family members we've lost, wondering if we'll all still be together for next Christmas, and wondering what 2009 will bring for us.
The weather didn't cooperate either. It was rainy and muddy. Seems like this is going to be one of those winters where we get a lot more ice/freezing rain/sleet than snow.
