Christmas weekend is coming up. We suffered a major dissapointment when we found out son from NC can't come down. Son in GA and Daughter in FL are coming Christmas Day. We originally thought that Son in GA was going to stay a few days. Yesterday, he told his Dad that they were coming for the day only. Something about the hassle of bringing the dogs, which they have always done in the past. His Dad is very dissappointed. I don't know if I should contact them or not. I don't want anyone to have any regrets but I don't want to "shame" them into coming. If I point blank asked them to, they would, but for the wrong reasons.
All of our married life, he has taken very little interest in Christmas. Loves the family get togethers but not into gift giving, decoration and all the other stuff that comes with the holiday. This year he helped with the tree, put up lights on the house and made gift suggestions for everyone. He has expressed to me that he thinks this will be his last one. I don't believe that, but it's what he thinks that matters. Though our family get together is going to be a small one this time, he has made an effort for it to be quite an extravagant one.
Should I just butt out? Should I email them, call them or send a pidgeon? I don't need this stress! LOL
Thanks for your input.
