Everyone is home now. My daughter got home last night from her ski trip with her grandpa. She had a good time, though the conditions were not the best since Utah is getting a ton of snow and ice. She has determined that snow and cold weather are good to visit but she would not like to live there. My son on the other hand, totally likes the cold and snow and has already warned me that he may move north as an adult. I of course advised him that I am only in Florida right now because I do not want to uproot the kids and cannot take them out of the state because their dad is here. Once they both are in college, I will be free to look for a job in another state if I so choose, so I may not stay here either. Only time will tell where I will end up.
Tonight we are hosting dinner for 11. That should be fun. Luckily it is warm enough that I can put the kids on the porch to eat if there is not enough room in the house...lol. I have advised the kids that they can open their gifts early on Christmas Eve so that they have some time to enjoy them before they go to their Dad's for a week. So, right now, I am trying to enjoy that everyone is home.
