I am counting down the sleeps until back to school. It’s been fun having the kids home but even they are starting to miss the daily routine of going to school. The arguments are happening faster and lasting longer and getting louder. It doesn’t matter how much I try to distract them with activities or games. Sigh…
We had a very nice, quiet, Christmas. Christmas morning we got up around 8:30am. I think the kids were up an hour prior. They managed to quietly wait and watch Netflix. Once we got up, they had to wait a few minutes longer while their Dad grabbed the turkey out of the freezer. Our family dinner was the next day rather than later in the day.
Kids tore into their gifts and were quite happy with their gifts from Santa as well. I am confident that everyone got what they asked for. The girls wanted to build their Lego sets and we happily helped. Both girls got rather large sets and so this took up most of the day. We had breaks in between so I could try and tidy the house for our arriving company on Saturday.
The kids all received lots of treats in their stockings. I’m certain the girls scarfed theirs that day and Aidan managed to save a few for the rest of the weekend.
Boxing day my parents arrived and we had a mini Christmas all over again with them. Kids were very pleased with all their gifts! Next to arrive later in the day were Nana and Papa, followed by Auntie, Uncle and Cooper. We had a great dinner that was so tasty I could eat turkey for days!! We are going to be eating turkey for days as we cooked up two!! Yum!!
My parents were here for the weekend and were chased away on Monday morning by an impending freezing rain storm. Yuk. What terrible weather we had yesterday. We managed to run to the grocery store to grab some supplies as we weren’t sure what the roads were going to be like today. Luckily it was warm enough today that all the ice melted!
We had a great Christmas with our family! Hope you all had a Merry Christmas with your families!!
