The girls did NOT have Santa Christmas morning... Apparently Psycho talked to an elf and the elf told her that Santa was coming to DH and I's home and not to the cabin.... So Christmas morning they got to watch all their cousins open gifts from Santa while they had a few things from family members and "Psycho" (aka GBM. Psycho doesn't spend money on them...). When the girls told me that I sat there in disbelief for a minute, because we didnt' have them Christmas morning, we could have decided not to do Santa because SHE had them Christmas morning... Then what? A ten and five year old would sit there wondering why Santa doesn't like them??? But hey, not her problem, she wouldn't have to deal with upset kiddos.
They were BOTH excited to be home though. Ran over to us, and the second they were out of the car ran into DH's parent's house and away from the crazies. LMAO
But ehy, at least GBM got some new stuff for the girls, clothing wise, all of which I plan to send back next visitation so they have clothing and toys there. (you can tell GBM got all that stuff, anything Psycho gets them she refuses to send anywhere with them and hoards, if GBM buys it she doesn't care where it goes. I don't mind her keeping even GBM's stuff though, that gives the girls soemthing to do and wear when they have to go on visits)
SD10 texted me pretty well the whole time they were gone, upset that they might be late getting back, telling me it was boring, she wanted to be home, I told her to go have fun with her cousin and stop whining so much. LOL (She ADORES her cousin, she just didn't like that Psycho was around).
Psycho didn't even drive them up. They rode with GBM and Psycho's sister. Then I guess she mostly avoided them and then was "mad she had to leave a day early just to get them back to their dad." *eye roll*
SD5 did say something that made me worry a bit last night though. She all the sudden says "I'm keep secrets from you two..." I say "what secrets?" and she responds with. "Ummmmmm..... Oh, my stuffed dog is named Snow." The hesitation and the fact Psycho has tried to get them to keep secrets before just made it all feel a little uneasy.
But done is done, they mad eit home safe. She picked them up 9 hours late and then returned them 15 minutes early. (of course she texted DH around 10 telling him she was returning them 2 hours early.... Then didn't.... Must have decided she wanted more time with GBM or something)
