I just want to thank everyone who left Christmas and holiday messages under my last post and I hope you all had a great holiday.
Yes, it was fun seeing the grandkids, 7 and 6, and watching them leaving food on the front law for the reindeer and cookies for Santa but having mixed feelings because I know we don't have too many years left of them waiting for Santa. And seeing them run downstairs, looking under the tree and yelling, "the wii, the wii,'' just what they had asked Santa to leave. Ah, those moments are priceless.
And for those of you who are grandparents, you know how much fun they are. I asked the 6 year old how much 6 and 5 added up to and she said 11. When I asked what's 5 and 6 and she hesitated and said, "11'' and then added, "You can't trick me.'' Again, moments to savor.
Ane while there was the usual holiday stress to deal with, the weather was rainy in the northeast instead of snowy and the planes were on time. You can't ask for much more.
By the way, we didn't get as many Christmas cards as in past years. Did you experience the same thing or did you cutback yourself? I don't know if this is a trend or not.
