Home for the holidays. Yup. I went home for the holidays. Made that 2 1/2 mile trek....driving conditions were clear so I was there in 5, well maybe 6 minutes. Phew.
My brother and sister-in-law have 2 kiddos 5 and 7, so really this holiday is about them. I could pass it right by and just go get a coffee with my best, but the rest of the family finds much joy in the day. It was fun to see the magic that lives in children this time of year, that somehow left my building a long time ago. Elvis musta grabbed it on his way out.
Sharing Barbie Secrets BW
My niece got about a million Barbies and Barbie accoutrements this year (including a kick-ass karate Barbie outfit from ME!). This one had a twisty thing and then the dress flapped open when you hit a button or something like that. She was happy.
The New Toys
Thomas the Train is soooooo done. Now it's Star Wars and more Star Wars-especially if there are Legos. A couple of those droids ended up being my "guys" during the Sorry game we played later.
Yes, the big kid's eyes still twinkle at Christmas. He's rockin' the hat the grand kids gave him. I'm thinking he's all set to attend a game in January or take care of any needed snow-blowing-or both!
Father Son 116/365
But here's the winner of the day for me. My nephew can be an imp, but he left the imp home and had a fun day. No way the milkman stepped in on this one.
Hope your home was happy for the holidays-or you went to a really good movie.
