R and I finally decided what day we would head to Houston and when we would come home. Then I sent my sister an email asking about my nephew’s favorite color.

Turns out they are thinking of going to London/Paris for the week of Christmas. She wanted to know if Dad could come stay with me. I said yes. I also said we were already planning on coming to Houston and asked if we could stay at their house with my dad. (Dad lives with her.)

She did not answer that one.

Then I asked when they will decide. She said in the next few days.

So… Either we will be at home for Christmas–but R and M will drive to Houston for visits and photo shoots–or we will be in Houston by ourselves, but with my dad. I actually like the second choice better. Even if it does mean I would have to clean my sister’s gigantic house.
