Of course I missed my own family. This was my first Christmas away from them, and I was totally fine until Christmas Eve. I never realized all of the 50 traditions we have on that one evening that I look forward to so much! Tried to read a Christmas story at Tyler's in front of his family, and it wasn't pretty. I totally broke down and was laugh/crying/hiding my face/joking all at the same time.. Oy.
It was nice though to have a quiet, low key Christmas, nobody to debate with (my 10 year old sister) on what holiday classic to watch next! So pretty much Tyler suffered through every black & white Christmas movie there ever was.
