Here are a few more shots from the holiday that I wanted to share.
As you can tell, everyone had fun! But we got a heavy dose of reality when we got back. With the little girls, it shows up in sleep problems. Our room in Rancho Mirage had two queen beds so they slept with us. Now, of course, they don't went to sleep by themselves! Mia is missing our old house and, to top it off, she left her favorite doll, Pink Baby, somewhere the on the trip! She has slept with Pink Baby almost every night for the last three years. Mia is in serious grief mode.
We have decided to move at the end of the year, when the house is ready. I guess we were a little too optimistic about when the extra work we wanted done would be completed. So we will move in rather than spend another 2-3 months, after closing, in the condo. We will just have to live with a little construction here and there.
We are trying to keep things as close to the same as possible. So Mia still does her job of setting the silverware on the table for dinner. Here is what she put down at her place. I think maybe I need to supervise a little better!
This year we will be keeping things very simple for the Holidays, after all we already had our major celebration! We are only giving the girls two gifts each and will be trying to do things that are more spiritual, rather than commercial. I'll let you know how it goes!
