This was the first Christmas that me or the kids have ever spent away from my side of the family and it was very strange. It is just to much for me to travel at the current time so it was a Christmas in Louisiana this year!
It was hard on everyone not to spend the holidays with my family so we tried to make this Christmas a special one for the kids. We also did this in part because for some of my hubby's side of the family it may be their last. Christmas Eve we had dinner at Granny Sue's house and exchanged gifts. Everyone had a great night and Maw Maw topped it off by letting everyone in on her "Senior Year" of high school and her college plans. If you can't guess my husbands Grandmother has dementia. For any of you that do not know what dementia is, here is a link to explain it all. http://www.alz.org/what-is-dementia.asp
The evening winded down and it was a mad rush to beat Santa to the house. Kids had a secret sleepover in big sisters room so Santa could deliver their big gifts. Hubby and I spent quite some time zoning out to Pink Floyd putting together desks & chairs. End result was a good one...no leftover parts!
Look out 2014 here I come!!
