These boys are doing good. They are still a bit loud and obnoxious. I guess the is what makes them boys?
We are taking them to santas village around thanksgiving time. www.santasvillage.com
very cool place. I cant wait to take them. They are very excited to be going to see where santa lives. They also see the gang of reindeer. How cool is that? I cant wait to get away and just have some much needed great fun…
Life has been crazy for my boys the last five months and it is just getting crazier. I feel bad that we have been dealing with what we have to deal with. The other day i found myself mad at my dad for doing this to our family.
We are family that loves tradition. Loves to be with family for the holidays and yet this year I am finding myself not wanting any part. This is what has started the new findings of new traditions.
here our ours
-christmas stuff goes up the day after thanksgiving
-december 5th kids leave shoe by the door to see if they are getting coal or treats
-chirstmas tree lighting in town
-we bake and do crafts all month long
-christmas eve with my dads family
-christmas day with my moms family
-christmas eve they get matching jammies and a tree ornament
THere are a bunch of other little things I am forgetting. I am really sad that my dad wont be here to get into the spirit with us. We are feeling this empty space where he should be. How do you make it through this point???? I have yet to figure it out.
It kills me when we pull into my moms house and the boys ask if pop pop will be there. It kills me when they ask my brothers how come their dad died and who is going to build with them.
I see my boys as remarkable. I figure Nate would have no clue as to who pop pop was.Yet he remembers and talks about him as if we saw him yeasterday. I am amazed by Blakes ability to tell me specifics about my dad. They are troopers in all my madness.
So what are your family traditions?
