Good morning to all on this December Monday. We got the Christmas 🌲 tree last night. Jace and my main mate chopped one down. Not sure where, but it’s perfect, big and fat. We will decorate it this Sunday. We do Christmas cookie decorating, Tree decorating and santa 🎅🏼 stops by to see how every one is behaving. A family tradition.
Usually we make all the cookies from scratch, but my prayers have been answered, went to Gordons food and you can buy frozen Christmas sugar cookies in all the shapes. so now we will just cook them and then the kids will decorate them. MUCH EASIER!!!!!!
Santa 🎅🏼 has been played by my dad for years, the routine is G-ma stops over first during all the decorating going on to visit, then as soon as it gets dark . We hear the magical jingles ( bells) and Santa’s at our door. He brings a book to look up names to see if your on the GOOD or BAD list. Ummmmmm🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔 there should be some nervous castle members on which list their name might be on🤣🤣😂.
BAD LIST GOOD LIST
MAIN MATE ???? DUH ….. GRANNY
STIN ???? ASHLEY(IN BETWEEN THE LIST, CAN BE MESSY)
CARTER ???? JACE…EXCELLENT
TREV ????? WESTON…..EXCELLENT
RANGER ????? (NEEDS HIS OWN LIST) DINO….EXCELLENT
HENI DOG ( ON ASHLEYS LIST)
VICTORIA & LOVER …..EXCELLENT FOR PUTTING UP WITH MY SONS.
Each year it varies, last year all 3 grandsons cried, and were frightened of the big, round, man in the red suit. His visit is very brief. We get pictures and they get to tell him what they want and how ” good” they’ve been😂. Then Santa seems to flirt with G-ma ( my mom) , for some reason Santa loves g-ma sitting on his lap. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
HOW WOULD YOU LIKE LISTENING TO THIS THING GOING 24-7. MAIN MATE WILL PROBABLY REMOVE THE BATTERIES. LOL
Poor Santa always calls before his visit with one request………..turn the heat off. He about had a heat 🔥stroke one year when my little kids were little. With all his layers. It really is a super fun tradition and my dad does an amazing job. But it’s funny because every year, the kids would get so bummed out that P-dog ( grandpa) missed santa’s visit. lol 😂
THESE ARE PICTURES FROM LAST YEAR, 2 OF THE 3 CHILDREN WERE NOT SANTA FANS. THINKING THIS YEAR WILL BE BETTER.
What are some of your family tradition’s????? Yes, we do go a little overboard. I still like to get the ( adults) pajamas. Matching if possible. Or at least the 3 grandsons. It’s hard for my married son and his wife. They have so many people that want them to stop by, it makes it hard on them and the kids. Jaces’s first Christmas they spent driving around to house after house. My son was over the whole holiday. He said he was not leaving his house the next year and if you wanted to see him and his family feel free to stop by . Didn’t happen 🤣🤣he was back at family parties. But we tried to work out a better routine this year.
Dino’s feeling better, lots of cough attacks yesterday, but slept like a gem. Possibly due to some natural sleep 😴 medicine. The main mate recommended Ashley dose him up on a nightly basis for a peaceful evening always. He’s lost his voice , so it was all squeaky and had us laughing and himself laughing about where his voice went.
I HAVE TO SHARE THIS WITH EVERYONE. DINO DIDNT EAT A GOOD DINNER , SO NO DATE BALLS FOR HIM (WHICH ARE HIS FAVORITES), SO ASHLEY IS HIDING AND EATING THEM, AND HE KEEPS ASKING HER WHAT SHE IS EATING. LOVE IT!!!!
ONE MORE DINO QUOTE FOR THE EVENING, HE JUST ASKED HIS MOTHER IF THEY COULD GO TO THE STORE FOR………LIMA BEANS!!!! OK, WHAT KID MAKES A REQUEST LIKE THAT. MY KIDS WOULD ASK FOR AN ICE CREAM , THATS THEIR GO TO SNACK. BUT LIMA BEANS???? WAIT UNTIL UNCLE TREVOR HEARS THIS.
GOOD NITE TO ALL. HOPING TO WATCH ANOTHER EPISODE OF THAT F’D UP MOVIE “SHAMELESS”. ITS SO BAD, THAT ITS GOOD.
