Christmas 2017 Recap...
Well, Christmas of 2017 is over, and 2018 is here! Overall, we had a great Christmas break, filled with family gatherings, games by the fire, presents (including a surprise trip to Disney World for Adrian, Ashton, Malia, Jalen, and Jordan in February, and one for Shana in May when she's finished with college), a 2-week vacation for Chris from work, some projects at Chris’s parents’ new house, and some master suite projects (scraping the popcorn finish off our bedroom and closet ceiling, sanding stripes off the walls, painting walls, redecorating, building a bookshelf, and adding some decorative tile in our bathroom...so maybe Chris didn't get a vacation after all). We also experienced some sickness. Poor little Quintin had bronchiolitis and a double ear infection, so he wasn't able to go to all of our Christmases.
Reading the Christmas story:
Our gift from the kids included a basket full of goodies, gift cards to Catablu and Debrands, clothing, candy, free massages and babysitting, and essential oils!
The kids opened Mickey shirts and ears, and were excited about our upcoming trip to Disney.
Quintin couldn't go to my family Christmas since he was sick, but he got to FaceTime with his cousin.
And here is Chris, working hard at completing his wife's wishes for our bedroom:
Happy New Year, everyone!
