winter! Not too bad so far. Some cold days and some
"warmer" ones. BUT more sun than I thought
we would have this time of year!
for updates! Had a WONDERFUL simple Christmas!
didn't buy ANYTHING for Christmas! It was all
handmade/homemade this year! The boys each got a
quilt from me that I made all on my own! They came
out good. I made Matthew a Raiders football quilt
and Alex I made a cool looking blue and black quilt!
I'll add pictures by end of the week. Then I
made all the kids gratitude beads. Those are kind of
neat as well. Kassie I made a copy of our Christmas
book so she has one to share with her new family
this next year and start traditions of her own!
was the smallest, simplest Christmas ever and it was
wonderful. At first I was so sad that the boys
didn't have a ton of presents under the tress, but
you know something, they didn't once complain or say
a word about it. I'm so very lucky that God sent
them to me!
Christmas tree looked like one you would see in a
kindergarten class! BUT it was decorated with
homemade/handmade decorations as well. Construction
paper chains, strung popcorn and marshmallows. It
on to a new year!
hurt his wrist this past week (17/09) and has a
splint on it for now, hairline fracture. Well, this
is broken bone #4 for him. He IS a boy!
got a job!!!! McDonalds! He LOVES it. Making new
friends and memories! He's almost done with this
stage of schooling! Graduates in June and then off
to start a new chapter in his life!
by end of this month or very first of next, Larry
and I will be grandparents! Kassie is due to have a
baby boy Feb. 2nd, 2009. Not sure if she'll make it
to her due date. So this will be a new chapter in
ALL our lives. I'm not sure what to think about it.
for my health:
at a cross road now. I have to do something very
soon. Either get very serious about the natural path
ways or back into treatment and even surgery maybe.
I'm still working on my walking and strength right
now.... speech has been good for the most part for a
while now. Some days are not so good, but those days
are getting far and few between. My goal is the Lake
of the woods run! I missed it last year, but want to
at least walk it this year if I can. That is a HUGE
goal for me this time around. BUT goals are good!
to all and thanks for checking in. Happy New Year to
TRIPLES with EMMA
