Christmas and more
Christmas was very relaxing. Seriously one of the most relaxing, quiet, stress-free Christmas’ we have had in a while. Loved it. My brothers, their wives and children were all there. All of us. It was nice to have the entire family together. My mom went totally out of her way again. Santa landed on our roof, shared sweets with the kids,while my brother rushed to get all the presents under the tree.
The little girl next door, saw Santa ‘land’ on our roof and shame, she just ran of to call her family because Santa is there! I felt so bad for her! Thankfully her family were quick thinkers and just did their whole Santa thing earlier than planned.
The kids had been begging us to let them stay with their cousins. Ideally I would have wanted all the kids here. I’m sure my sister-in-law would have wanted all the kids there. Eventually we settled on Jason going with them and Douglas staying here. It’s been six hours and I’m missing my son like you won’t believe. I do hope that he will be okay.
Tommie and I have decided to sell our home. It’s not the same. The boys have not swam in the pool since we got back. Thankfully my mom and Tommie’s mom have pools so the kids have been swimming there. The wall by the pool between us and our neighbours just fell in today. It’s time for us to go. I don’t want to stay here any more.
