The family Christmas is Over and everyone has gone home.

Man is it quiet here. No TV on, jus the sound of sign’s of missing the grandbabies. We had all 10 grandchildren here with their parents. Full for a 3 bedroom house.

My eldest daughter with the twins, got an engagement ring on New Years Eve.

So we had a great time

10 Aldults and 10 Grandkids in a 3 Bedroom house. It was a tight fit. The Business card holders and Pens went over great.

It sounds like you had a wonderful time. But I agree with you that it is a little sad when they leave. But that just makes the next time they are there all the more enjoyable.

My family is away and I was sitting in the den the other day and it was so quiet that I heard a clock ticking that I never heard before…..then I fell asleep on the couch…LOL

The end of the holidays is bittersweet. We just got home from visiting our kids and grandkids in Phoenix. It’s nice to be home, to sleep in my own bed; to work in my own shop. Still I’m not really happy about leaving the kids.

My Mom always said she was glad to see us come and glad to see us go. I know what she meant. Our oldest grandson just went home about an hour ago, Whew! We’ve had him for 3 days straight, how I love the little bugger, just want to squeeze his little head off. Only six.
