Super Mom

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.

    I am very glad you are selling the house. I know you,… and I know how you would feel.

  7. Oh I am so sorry your family had that happen. What a sad thing. I would move too. My prayers for you and your boys. And for the little boy and his family too.

    You are so sensitive. It just isn’t good for you to be reminded what happened all the time.

    Peace to you.
