Anyway, to do a little recap: Thanksgiving was great. We drove to my parents house and had a great time visiting with everyone and eating way too much. I even got pictures of everyone and will be doing my best to attempt to send out Christmas cards for the first time ever. (Yes, I know I'm almost 40. I have just never been good about getting anything in the mail. Ask my brother in law who got his Christmas gift last year in March.) I shared one pic on IG and another one last week, but they are just too good not to share. My girls are so pretty.
I did have a little "come to Jesus" meeting with the girls last week. I had missed two Christmas programs because I didn't hear about them in time and was feeling sad and left out. I basically told them that while I am not perfect, I want to be more involved in things going on in their lives. But, they need to meet me halfway and give me a call or Facetime or Skype once in a while. I don't want to feel like I'm being replaced by their grandmother who is ALWAYS around. They reassured me and vowed to do a better job, but the problem is that they are as forgetful as I am. I just need to remember that it is give and take and not to let one thing set me into a downward spiral.
