I thought Id start a thread although due to Jumpers odd work schedule and our not wanting to split our kids between two families on one day, we have the holidays when its the right time. Not on the exact day. Dec. 24 my Wisconsin family did have dinner at my house but we didnt exchange gifts yet because we are waiting for Princess and Baby Princess to arrive and she stayed in Chicago and cooked for my ex on the 25th. He is always funny about having to see her on the right day so we just dont make a big deal about that and we see her as soon as we can. Our Christmas gathering will be Friday. Yesterday, hubby snd I watched Christmas movies all day and gave the dogs their gifts from Santa Paws! It was relaxing and fun. We invited Sonic and sister in law/brother in law over too and they were all here for a few hours. Jumper and Hunter were with the in laws for a while, but this was not their big Christmas....just the kids (they have a gynormous family!) Tomorrow my Chicago girls get here!!! They are staying with Jumper who has lots of room and will be in Wisconsin until Sunday. Friday will be our big celebratuon day. we have presents spilling under our tree! Saturday. Is the big day at Jumper's in laws house so the rest of us are going to take Baby to The Children's Museum. Then since we will be out of town probably eat out. Talked for a few hours with Bart and Grandson. I really want to see my grandson so we will go this late winter sometime. Thats all for now. I hope you all had a good Christmas. I know it can be very stressful and sad for many people. I am sorry if it was like that for anyone. Sending love and light!
