Hugs..No, we didn't make it to the Open House. I was so exhausted that I almost felt sick. The thought of getting dressed better, doing make up and driving to the location was more than I could handle. Hated missing it, but couldn't help it.

Yes, my dh is a sweetie for sure. He's good with the grands, keeps them entertained and I did get a nap in today! :)

Nice you're relaxing at home. Glad we didn't get the snow storms that the NE got!! There's a foot of snow up there!! That was a lot of driving for your dh and youngest son, but nice they could spend that time together. So sorry you and your oldest son aren't getting along so good. Hope tomorrow is a better day! Good it's mostly fun!! :)

Gosh Donna!
Exhausted reading all you had to do to get ready & even after for you to host it.
I agree .. way too much work, LOL
Did you make it tonight to your Open House?
Oh good the wedding is right there in town, whew!
Nice that dH will give you a break from the grands when need be (such a sweetie you have)!

We've been hanging out inside mostly.
Although youngest & DH had to run up to his place (1 1/2 hours each way) today so they were gone.
Oldest & I are not getting along great :(
We've been doing our card thing & staying up way too late ::yawn::
Fun though mostly :)

Hugs...Yes, lots of fun!! It was so much work, though, being at our house even though everyone brought foods to share. I didn't have to clean my house for it never gets dirty due to our cleaning lady and we're not messy people, except for the bathrooms that was a fast cleaning. It was bringing extra chairs up from the basement and the two extra table leaves, finding and getting out the Cmas tablecloth and napkins, setting the table, getting my foods contribution together, and so on. Then there's the host & hostess thing of making sure everyone has what they need, drinks poured, eating, unwrapping gifts, then it's time to get the desserts and coffee going, played a new fun game of Hedbanz, and finally we were all so tired we had to end it. Then the cleaning up began!! Of course my dd's helped clean everything up before they left and dd1's boyfriend helped carry chairs and table leaves downstairs, but there was still lots to do after they left for dh and I before we could get to bed. OMGosh, I hope we never have to have it at our house ever again!! We're too old for this!!

I don't know if we'll make it to the Open House today. We're just way too tired to even think about getting ready to go and driving there. It's only about a 20 minute drive, but it's cold out and we're tired!! We'll see.

No, we're not going out of town this week..mercy no!! You must mean for the wedding? It's here in town about 20 minutes away. Thank goodness!!

Yea, the grands will be here. DH is good at keeping them entertained when I have to take a break and doze in my chair for a bit. Hopefully we'll be rested up a bit more by tomorrow.

Thanks, you have a good week too!! Do you have any plans of fun things to do with your boys while they're there??

Ughhh..someone please..don't give me anymore food!!! So stuffed and so tired of eating!! Sure was good at the time though..LOL!!

Christmas week beginning Christmas Eve..traditional Swedish dinner at friends home. Then to 11pm candlelight service at church.

Christmas Day..Family came to our house instead of DD2's house as DD2's hubby is sick!! We missed him, but had 9 of us for a fun time!

Wednesday Boxing Day..Christmas Open House at our pastor's home.

Thursday and Friday..We'll have my two youngest grandloves for the days as school is closed. Friday I'll also get my nails done and that night we're going to our pro-soccer game.

Saturday...Dh's (our) niece's wedding..meaning more food!! Surprised

Sunday..Sunday school & church and out for Chinese food and nothing for the rest of the day!!

Hope you all had a Very Merry Christmas and are enjoying the rest of the week!
