We had an amazing Thanksgiving with my family and my God parents. My kids were the only one there so they got a lot of attention.
We went to a tree farm and the boys loved it. We can’t have a live Christmas tree due to my allergies but we got to pick one out for my parents.
My sister was in town so the boys were all over her and she loved it.
I shared my number with Baby Zs parents and it has worked really well. I have been able to share pictures and answer their questions. We have a communication notebook but I sometimes think things are better said over the phone.
We decorated for Christmas. It is very minimal this year due to having a toddler and a crawler. I won’t be putting ornaments on the tree till a couple days before Christmas. Eventually I will post about my favorite kid friendly Christmas decorations.
I finally raked up my leaves (my parents helped). I saw my neighbors doing it and went “oh crap I need to do that”.
We saw Princess and she had a sleepover . It was a great surprise. I love how well the three of them get a long.
I am enjoying the Holiday season this year for the first time in a while. Last year at this time I was failing as a mom and my life was in constant chaos and I ended up having to opt out of seeing Hailee for Christmas for her well being. The year before I barely saw Hailee and everything just happened with court. I love going into the holiday season with less stress and a whole lot of love in my heart.
Bubba’s Mom came. He hasn’t seen his parents or siblings in a couple weeks due to a DCFS problem. So he loved seeing her.
