I've been off work since Thursday, with family visiting from Vacaville and celebrating our whole family Christmas at my son's house on Thursday.
My daughter Kristy and her husband Matt, and kids Andrew and Lauren arrived Wednesday evening. I don't how I'm ever going to keep track of what day it is when I'm retired. I'm having a problem remembering what we did and which day while the kids were here. : )
Kristy's family stayed with me, but we all met at Tom and Trish's house since it's a large home and had lots of room for meals, opening more gifts, the kids had lots of room to play, etc.
We had Eggs Benedict for breakfast at Tom and Trish's one morning - delicious! Tom is a great cook and did most of the meal cooking, with everyone else helping out when needed.
Afterward we opened more presents and got lots of great photos for the scrapbooks. The kids played and had a great time together.
Thursday evening everyone except me and my youngest granddaughter, Lauren, went to the Holiday Bowl. Lauren and I had a "girls night." I got some great one-on-one time with Lauren, but didn't spend a lot of quality time individually with the other grandkids. They were so happy to see each other, the adults faded into the background the whole visit. But I did get the next best thing, watching them all having fun and enjoying each other. Lots of running, lots of playing, lots of noise, lots of fun. I got lots of good photos of Lauren, here are a few:
