It is kinda different, having older kids during the Holidays...There is some wonder of the season left, but there is also a quietness and somberness that sets in too.
We all know the drill, and it has become obvious to all that I buy most of the presents. Which is fine with me, but it does leave a bit of an empty feeling in my stocking! 😋
As time goes on, and the kids are harder to buy things for, it becomes more and more obvious that the holidays are not about things and gifts...It's about each other. It is about family. (Well, duh). 😊
Although, as I write this, Willow is watching a dreadful Barbie video, Chewy is on his new Kindle, and Michael is in his room upstairs...We are going to have a nice turkey dinner (a pre-cooked, all I have to do is reheat one this year--birthday present to me!) And then we will all go see Rogue One!
It is nice to be here with my family.
