For the pass 25 years my 2 sisters and I who reside in the same state have had our own family tradition of spending Xmas together.

Yes, these are the same kids that were bullying my son. Have they stopped? Yes and no, the last time they saw him over their grandmother's they brought up the bullying incident and told him he was a baby and tattle tale. To be honest my niece and her kids have rubbed me the wrong way for years and I had let a lot of things go for the sake of preserving the family relationship.

Her kids tormented my son

If it was the adults that didnt show up at the house, then I wouldn't give the money out either. But for the kids I would give it to them. They can't help the way adults act, so maybe you should bend the rules for the kids sake.

The kids were not there either. It was their grandmother who asked for the money to take to them. If they had been there then I would have given the money to them as I always have in the past.

No, you are not a Scrooge.
