Charlie Bear here. Mom Peep went to Wisconsin the first weekend in December for Great-Grandbaby Aubree’s first birthday.
She even went along to see Santa.
Mom Peep knows that spending time with family is precious. And she knows the importance of being “in the moment.” Like when Grandson Nick said on Sunday, “You only have two more nights and then you’ll be going home already.”
Mom Peep replied, “I’m not even thinking about that. We have lots more fun stuff to do yet.”
But she wasn’t always that way. Years past, she would stress out, have a sad face, and even cry BEFORE she was at the airport and on a plane back to California.
Now, she makes the most of every moment. Even watching two movies that weekend Colton picked out: Purge: Anarchy (which was really good from a novel-writer’s perspective), and Divergent (again, mom analyzed it from a writer’s perspective and just knew there would be a sequel…and there is! It’s coming out in March she thinks).
There was the rare alone time with Colton where they enjoyed root beer floats (yum…Mom Peep LOVES those), and the at-home tailgate party where the gang watched the Monday night football game all cozy in their home. They ate loaded nachos and chili cheese dogs and opened Christmas gifts during halftime.
Mom Peep says: Love the ones you’re with and ENJOY EVERY MOMENT.
Some of you have to be here, there, and everywhere for Christmas. That’s the hard part of having lots of family, but isn’t it also the good part? When you walk in the door of one house, leave all the traffic problems and sour pusses behind. Enjoy being with your loved ones. And when you have to move on to the next location, do the same thing: Enjoy those loved ones too.
Mom and Dad Peep and me, one lucky dog, want to wish you the happiest, safest, most memory-filled Christmas ever!
Woofs and wiggles,
Charlie Bear, Mom and Dad Peep
