Christmas again?!!

Saturday, December 23, 2017

How did it get here so quickly? I think my trip back to Nebraska to spend more than a week with family. My sister put together a great Thanksgiving celebration. More than 30 family members-siblings, cousins, grandkids (not mine-I needed a break) plus at least 6 dogs. There were a few squabbles among the little girls but they ended quickly. The dogs were all very well behaved-no squabbles for them. They would run outside then come in to find a good sleeping spot. Most of the cousins stayed at my sister's while Larry and I stayed at my youngest brother's house. He had to work so we enjoyed a lot of quiet relaxing time that was sorely needed because we provide child care for our youngest daughter's girls who are Aaliyah- 2 yrs and Adalynn- 11 months. It's a lot of work for us seniors!
We will be celebrating Christmas with our middle daughter either at 8 a.m. when she gets home from work (hospital RN) or after she gets some sleep. I'm waiting to hear. Our youngest and her family may meet us there. Tuesday the older grandkids(14 &17) will head to Niceville(FL) to spend a few days with our oldest daughter and her husband. Their only kids are cats-5, I think, so every so often they give Sarah and Shane a break while they spoil the kids.

I still need to get my Christmas cards done and mailed. Guess I should call them New Years cards now. emoticon

    Glad you had a great time with your family! I keep forgetting you have a new grandchild- 11 months old! That is a lot of work for you- I know I wouldn't be able to keep up with it! You are stronger than me! emoticon

    There are a few I really need to do but probably won't get to everyone.

    By now, I've thrown up my hands and said, "What Christmas cards?" Teehee! Are we all in the same dilemma? Merry Christmas!
