I hope everyone who celebrates had a great Christmas, or just a great weekend.
We had a great time, except my youngest daughter in law got sick. I hate that for her. They had four parties back to back and ended up unable to go to any of them, and had to cancel another party at their house. I feel so bad for both of them.
Otherwise, we had a good holiday. We went to a big party at Wizard’s brother and sister-in-laws. We enjoyed that, but of course, it’s a bit hard with one brother so recently passed away. However his widow and daughter were there and that made everyone happier. I brought cookie plates as gifts. Here’s a picture of some of them, and a pic of most of the cookies and breads. Wizard posted this online BEFORE all the parties. I just shook my head when I realized what he’d done. So no one was surprised, LOL
2) The most fun for me was Christmas Eve when we went to Middle and his wife’s house. I finally saw their kitchen! I love it so much. I’m just so happy for them. It’s so perfect for their lifestyle, and they waited a long time to get it. As beautiful as it is, it’s also comfortable with a big center island and lots of barstools so people can gather without getting in the cook’s way. They really thought it out.
But the highlight of the night for Turbo was — seeing Santa Clause! So all credit goes to Turbo’s dad, CPA Boy, for arranging and buying everything, then springing it on Wizard so he couldn’t say no. So we got to Middle’s early, and once we knew Turbo and family had arrived, Wizard went into the other room to change into the Santa suit. He had garage access from that room, so he slipped out, came to the door and surprised the heck out of Turbo! Santa then asked everyone in the house what their name was and what they wanted for Christmas. When he asked Turbo, Santa announced that he had a gift for him in his bag, and pulled out a special surprise — a monster truck Turbo really wanted. (Again credit to Turbo’s dad for getting that too!)
Turbo carried that truck around the entire night. He told his dad he was so happy Santa came to see him! Turbo never recognized Grandpa, which did surprise us a little. We’d forgotten that when kids want to believe, they believe. And that’s the magic of childhood
Wizard was so thrilled, and he has a very special memory along with Turbo. It was awesome.
When we opened gifts, we facetimed youngest and his wife so they could see Turbo opening their gifts.
Christmas day we stayed home, both wiped out. We had a nice day together. We also bugged the crap out of youngest son by calling to check on our daughter in law Okay he didn’t really mind, he knows we care. He has a much milder cold-like version of the virus.
How was your holiday, or weekend?
