Family Christmas

So this is how I picture my family at Christmas. All my little children (they are actually 15, 16 & 17) standing around the Christmas tree we just cut down (or tried to buy at Lou's, but had to go to Chillicothe because Lou's did not have any) and we would all decorate the tree with a roaring fire in the living room (we don't have a fireplace) while Christmas carols softly play in the background (still trying to find out if snoop dog recorded a Christmas album, nothing says Christmas like rap carols).

Wait a minute.....................Sorry I dozed off there for a minute and came back to reality. So I got this tree which is wayyy to short for my tastes, climbed up in the attic and brought down all the Christmas tree ornaments, lights and garland by myself, put all the lights on the tree myself as Shelby was at a basketball game, Rodney was on the couch complaining about a migraine and Chase was downstairs on facebook with his headphones in. I decorated the entire tree myself and put all the mess away. Ahhh Christmas memories!

Step Son

I am amazed at the number of people who have step kids but dont really like them. I have won the step son lottery by having in my life for almost 18 years now an awesome young man who I love to be around. Brandon has been in my life since the day he was born. I changed his diaper, gave him bottles, potty trained him, hugged him, kissed him, yelled at him, put him in time out, and was there when he got his first car! He is smart, caring, and I swear he is a 50 year old man in disguise! He is such an old soul, and I really miss him when he is not around. I know I am not biologically his mother, but I love him and hope I had a part in making him into the man he has become. Thanks for being such a great son.

Oh how I love my knitting group! I am paying homage to all the knitters of the world. Its the first thing I have ever done that I really love and am getting really good at. I just wish I had more time to knit and then I would find true happiness.

Thank you to all my sister knitters in Morton!
