Look Who's Coming Home for Christmas!!

Hi everyone!

We were a bit sad this week to learn that our new home may not be ready for Christmas, as first planned. The trades in our community are incredibly busy and if one trade gets behind, it messes up the schedule for the rest. And that has happened with ours. Builder guy still thinks he can catch up but in the mean time, he's talked with us about the reality of not moving in as soon as we hoped. I appreciate his honesty and also his desire to continue to build well, not fast. We want and are getting a solid home, so if it takes a bit longer but is done properly, the wait will be worth it. I'm not a very patient person but am learning that good things take time and then they are even more appreciated for the wait that took place. That's our journey now but we were both still a bit sad and down.

What did lift my spirits from that news? The picture below:


This is Anakin Malibu, our newest grandbaby! And he's coming home for Christmas. It's his first as he was just born in the spring. And gramma and grampa are so excited to have a new little one in the house this year. We're very excited to have our son come home as well. But of course, once there is a grandchild in the picture, the adult children are loved but not as fun .... just kidding!! We miss both our boys every day and their families, so this news is a wonderful gift this year doe Christmas. If it's this house, Anakin will be sharing our last Christmas here. And if it's in the new house, he'll be marking our first Christmas in the country. Can't wait to meet this little guy!!

Have you made plans for your Christmas yet?

What a disappointment for you Chy. It will be all the sweeter when you are able to move in. We are starting to talk about Christmas here too. X

It was sad for just a few minutes and then we decided we would use it as a gift to have one last Christmas in this house! And we can still visit the other one that, if it's not done then, will be very close to being ready. So it's all good. I love Christmas so that was our goal but it's a good reason to wait for our move. :)

Aww, what a cutie!! We'll be having two babies coming home for Christmas, so no plans for us :)

I really hope the builder can catch up and you'll be able to move into your new place for Christmas!

I'm so excited for your family Lena. Two new babies for Christmas will be the best gift!! Our builder is working to get us in as soon as he can but we're fine with waiting. We still have this house to pack up and say goodbye. In the end, it will all work out!

We are likely getting a puppy in December - thought about it for months and the time has come. What kind is he? He is cute as a button!
