tree Kids for Christmas

I am very excited. I found out this week that my daughter and her family will be moving in with us for a while. So I will have my grandchildren here for Christmas Eve and Christmas morning. Imagine that, toys under my tree. Her husband is in transition changing jobs, his previous place of employment has been seeing a decline in business (they make parts of automobiles) and it's getting worse so he made a wise decision to change careers. In the meantime they need a quick place to stay until they get settled.

My son-in-law was here yesterday and he went shopping and bought 3 of those "I dogs" Of course we had to put batteries in them all to make sure they work so no little one with be upset Christmas morning. Now they are boxed and waiting for the big day from my closet shelf.

Oh what fun it will be.

That is SO wonderful! That is the one thing I miss the most about my kids getting older. Christmas Eve and morning are different with them "knowing" and not being as excited as they used to be when they were little. It's kind of sad really.

I would love to have little children again on Christmas morning!

How fun!! And how great your daughter and her family can move in with you while they re-organize their lives. It's times like this that we all realize just how important family is.

Yes, it will be an adjustment to have 5 more people with us but it's only temporary until they can find a place and her husband is done with his 5 week training that starts next week. So that takes them very close to Christmas and our main focus is keeping things normal and happy for the kids. We want them to have a wonderful Christmas and remember this Christmas spend with their Nany and Pappy.
It's a family effort, my other daughter is going to help with her oldest niece's homeschooling so that takes some pressure off my daughter that is moving in with me.
She's busy packing and doing it by herself while her hubby is in orientation this week.

I'm very proud of my daughters and how they work together and the strength and wisdom they show. The daughter that is moving in with us now lives 2 hours away from us. So we are happy to have them closer.
