I think while Kim was getting the boot outside, I saw her bodyguard looking a little defeated, standing with his face buried in the corner of the dining room with a dunce cap on. I'm still not sure if it was him or someone that just resembled him. I wonder if he's still working for Kim. She needs someone from the Secret Service or at least someone very alert and active to keep up with all of her shenanigans. I haven't talked to Kim G. since the day after the party. I called her to find out where her head was before, during, and after all of that drama. She wasn't very happy with any of us. The feelings were mutual. I guess it wasn't as much fun as she thought it would be. "My, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive."
Thank goodness Christopher and Johnny's friendship remained strong throughout this whole ordeal. I felt sorry for Christopher when I saw how much he was hurting over what happened. I know that he really tried to say and do the right things. I'm happy that his friendship to Kim's son remains intact. To be honest, if I saw Kim out somewhere, I'd probably still say hello to her because that's just the kind of girl I am. She may have done some shady things on our show, but there is actually another fun, sweet, giving, generous side to Kim as well. I think Kim just doesn't handle her hurt feelings very well. She gets vindictive. I think Kim is also just bored. I think Kim is acting like a frustrated actress who thinks she was starring in a movie and was playing the villain, but what she doesn’t realize is this is not a movie, it's reality. This is our real lives, real families, and real friendships that she's messing with and there are repercussion's for meddling in other peoples lives in a negative way. Cut the BS and let's party, Kim! Enough is enough! Enough said. Next topic.
Christmas Eve at Caroline's house is always a good time. Caroline cooks her butt off and she does it very well. There are a lot of us to feed, and we are always hungry. There is always a ridiculous amount of food and nothing ever goes to waste. Everyone brings something home if there is anything left. Everyone hangs out, tells stories, and laughs.
We eat and then we open gifts from everybody one at a time. It takes hours. Every year my husband calls out the gifts and CJ passes them out. We get so many gifts from the family for our kids that it's ridiculous. I take those opened gifts home and once the kids are in bed, I line those gifts along our fireplace so Christmas morning looks even more exciting. We also have the kids leave cookies and milk for Santa and carrots for his reindeer. On Christmas morning after all of Santa's gifts are opened, we go through the toys and decide which ones we can give away that they won't be playing with or that they may have doubles of. I held on to a lot of CJ's toys for Nicholas, but as he outgrows them, I will be giving them away. I'm looking forward to cleaning out the playroom and making it an adult playroom one day.
