I hope that everyone is having a nice holiday. We had a good day here.
We started the day bright and early rushing to get over to my sister's house to see my nephew open his presents as well as seeing my Uncle and Cousin who could only stay so long. Then came the mad rush of opening presents. Trying to take turns opening presents with eight people (including a toddler and a 14 year old) can be interesting. My nephew could've spent all day with his train set (the same goes with Tristan and his new Lego sets) and have been content with that. I remember how it was as a kid wanting to play with toys...
We had places to go and people to see! My Cousin Bev, Aunt Sis and family members were waiting! I was really looking forward to seeing them. Before we trekked over there, I was with David in my Mom's car, I wanted to see my Grandmother's old house so I drove David on a tour of Foxboro reminiscing. Holidays can be hard for everyone when you start thinking of those who aren't with us anymore. I try to think most about the happy times we experienced and the memories made.
We had a great day. Bev went out of her way to make a delicious meal for all of us. As always, everything was excellent and quite yummy. The day was spent talking and visiting with everyone.
Now we're back at my parents' house and everyone is exhausted. I'm off to relax and try to get some sleep. None of us has had a full night's sleep in several days so I'm hoping to catch some serious zzzz's tonight.
