It's Over PHEEEW

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. We had a lot of family time and tons of good food, all the kids seemed to have enjoyed their gifts and the best part, my son was there for all the festivities and was able to enjoy himself without being asked 25 times if they could leave. Christmas without Jessie was quite pleasant and I was happy to see Eric enjoying himself. I was a little worried that he would be bummed out and quiet but he was actually more like himself than I've seen in some time. We had a heart to heart away from the crowd and he seems to be doing well...he said he now just wants the whole thing over and done with. I did learn a few more things about Jessie's behavior of late and what he told me would normally make me very angry. But after thinking about it all, I am with him...he just wants to get on with his life and move forward. I am happy to know that Jessie's parents are also behind Eric and they have been very supportive of him. Catching their daughter in several lies has made them very wary of her and they know what she is capable of. They would actually like for Eric to continue living in their home but he will be moving in with a couple of his friends in the new year. I think that is for the best...the sooner he gets away from that house, the better. The only sad part is he cannot take the dog with him where he is going. And I know Jessie's father doesn't want the responsibility of taking care of the dog. So, not sure where he is going. I would take him in but I don't want Jessie coming around here to visit him.

My neice was at my parents house with her two little ones. They are such good kids, very well behaved and so cute. They are 15 months and 3 years old and it was really fun watching them open their gifts. Sara spent the whole day playing with them and really she is a natural. Kinda makes me want her to settle down and have a couple of kids. :-) That's not going to happen for quite sometime. It's ok, I'll just spoil George's grandkids and my great neice and nephew.

Here are a few pics from Christmas Eve and Day!

I'm glad Eric was able to attend the family Christmas celebration. I wish him all the best in the new year.

Sounds like you all had a wonderful Christmas together. Loved the pics. :)

It's fun watching kids opening their gifts and seeing what's inside. I have some pretty good video of Ryan opening some gifts and I'll post them when I get some time to work on them.

I hope next year brings a lot of happiness and resolution to Eric (and the rest of you!)

I loved all the pictures - I'm pleased to see Hunter still plugging along!

...and gosh, I still and will always melt when I see Sara's smile.

Hunter's still plugging along. :-) although I believe his hearing is now going downhill. But he's in pretty good health otherwise and hopefully will be with us for a long time to come.

Looks like everyone had a great Christmas. I love the picture of your stepdaughter Nicole and her Bon Jovi sock and peeps, lol.

I'm so glad Eric is doing well and eager to move forward. Shame he can't keep the dog.
