Ok girls. It's up to us to decide....

What are we going to do about Christmas? Grammy is super stressed out at the thought of having Christmas at her house. She can't stand the commotion and the crowd makes her nervous. She doesn't enjoy herself and darn it, she's too old to stress out and not have fun.

We can't think about what's best for us we have to think about what's best for her.

What do we do? Should we rent a place?

We had this discussion tonight at Grammy's. Mom wants to do Thanksgiving. So, it sounds like it's gonna be there. Aunt Jill was volunteering to do Thanksgiving (probably 'cause she didn't want Christmas at her house :)) I guess mom and Aunt Jill spoke today, and they found a really neato, homey place for $450 rent for 24 hours. Uncle Roy put his foot down and said that was too much money for everyone to be spending especially at Christmastime. I said I could have it at my house. I could set up tables and even put tables in the garage-it's heated, but my kitchen is probably way way too small. Aunt Jill then said we could have it at her house, and uncle Roy seemed to agree, but neither one were overly excited about it. I really could have it at my house. I would just have to move a bunch of furniture out, and bring in folding chairs which is no prob, and set up tables for the food in the dining room up against the walls, but I don't know what everyone else is thinking. I'm sure if we had somewhere else to do it, A.J. wouldn't get her feelings hurt, know what I'm saying? I don't know, what are you guys thinking? Grammy still has the biggest place, but you're right, she doesn't need to be stressed on Christmas. Personally, if we had it in some public place, I would be bummed.

I think we all should have Christmas at our own homes with our families and then go to grammys for snacks and the cuz gift exchange.


OR we could have it at one of the churches that one of us go to.

This is just wishful thinking but, does anyone have a friend that has a humongus house that they would lend us for the whole day while they would be out of state for Christmas?

I'm just worried about Grammy, She shouldn't have to think about being stressed out that whole day!

I know that it's tough on Grammy, but it makes me kind of sad to think about Christmas anywhere else. I definitely agree with Sarah....I will be really bummed if we don't have it at someone's house. One of these days, I'll have a big house and we'll all party there all the time!!!
