i was going to leave that in the comments on graces blog, but decided to share it here
only one phone call today, otherwise i messaged my children from FB. They were all busy with their own families and wrapping paper and new toys....food and even a kitten....under another families tree, but now my granddaughter #3 wants one too. can't argue with that...I love looooove cats.
the decorating can be stopped....though not put away....i have enjoyed being able to have my own do dads out on display. megan loved to rearrange every display so i got out of the habit of putting anything out. she would be so disappointed, and i would be depressed, that christmas wasn't much fun for either of us. megan has always moved way too fast for me....her brain thinks at mack 10! but i love her dearly. she is, afterall, the child that put "grand" before mother for me.
I love all my girls!
