The three of us girls were together again. I enjoy getting to have these times with my sisters. Even if it is for just an hour or so, it is definitely worth the time. One of my sisters lives with me, her husband had to work, so she rode with us. She sat in the back with the children and got to play referee.
After we had lunch, we headed to a music store. My daughter has wanted a guitar for a while now, and they were having good deals there. She didn't have enough money for one, or any money for one, so she borrowed it from her brothers. She agreed to pay them back. So far, the only hitch is, she isn't allowed to play it until it is paid for. She is really happy with it though. It is purple, which isn't a surprise!
After going to the music store in Rock Springs, it was time to say goodbye to my sister and my nephew. I always hate the goodbyes, but it is definitely worth it to see them.
My husband took the kids to see Big Hero 6 when we got home. I stayed home with my toddler, because she isn't a big fan of sitting in movie theaters. I also had some things to do around the house before Santa came. Santa comes on Christmas Eve in our house. My sister and her husband also stayed home.
My husband called when they were on their way back from the theater, so my toddler, sister, bro-in-law and I could go walk around the neighborhood and look at Christmas lights so Santa could come. My daughter loves looking at Christmas lights. It was a beautiful night. While we were out, we saw a TV by the curb saying that it was free, and that it works, so I remembered where it was so we could go claim it if it was still there, after opening gifts.
This was taken a few days before Santa came. There were a lot of gifts under there. My seven year-old exclaimed it was the best Christmas ever. I was happy that he felt that way. Opening gifts on Christmas Eve, gives us the time to remember why we celebrate Christmas on Christmas Day.
My sister made all the children blankets. Our puppy always loved laying on the blankets, so it wasn't too shocking to see this under the tree later that evening.
I am so blessed to have my children. We enjoyed Christmas Day with my sister and her husband, and my sister-in-law, brother-in-law and nephew. It was a nice day with them.
