...your holiday, I mean? What did you do? What did you get? Anything particularly special? This morning, Erik and I exchanged gifts shortly after we got out of bed. He loved everything I got him. When he opened his big gift, It took him a minute to realize what exactly it was, and I had to explain it to him fully. We can't wait to go! He wants to try and hit at LEAST one ball park while we're there...it'll be hard to do more than that right now, because finances aren't what they used to be before he started school, and before he built a house! Summer is a long way away though, and ya just never know. After exchanging gifts at home, we got ready and went to my parents house. It was me, my little brother, my step-sister and my step-dad. It was pretty nice. I always used to dread Christmas at Mom's house, but things are finally changing for the better in the family. Once through there, we made a short stop across the street at Gramma and Grampa's...then took the 1/2 hour drive to the town Erik's mom and dad lives in. First to his mom's for a while, then to his dad's. (I like both his mom and his dad a lot, but I feel so much more comfortable at his mom's for some reason...I was happy when we finally left his dad's...not that I had bad time or anything) ...then to Erik's 1st step-dad (his mom is on her third marriage, so she's married to hsi second step-dad now) to visit with him and give him some gifts. It was actually the first time Erik had seen him in about two years. He's a really nice guy and they had a great visit. ...after that, back to my town again, to my brothers to TOTALLY SPOIL my neice and nephew! I didn't realize how much I bought for them!!! :shock: They were SO SPOILED THIS YEAR! And the really good part about my brothers house is this...ok, background story first. My brother and his wife have not spoken to my mom and step dad in years. My neice is nearly 5 and doesn't know she has another gramma. Well, a few weeks ago, Heidi (brother's wife) stopped in where my mom works and invited her and the rest of the family to Christmas! So they were there, and they all talked nicely and visited. So in my brother's tiny apartment, it was Me, Erik (and you should see how much the kids like Erik!), my brother, his wife, my neice, my nephew, my mom, my step-dad, my dad, and my little brother. Now we're finally home again...we watched some Family Guy and played some indoor wrapping paper baseball for about 40 minutes, til we broke the bat (an umbrella)....now it's time to relax til bed-time. What a great night! Tommorrow the plan is to head to my cousin Mike's house and take my 5 little cousins their gifts. So how was your Christmas!?
