Look Who's Coming Home for Christmas!!
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?
