   Christmas use to be my favorite holiday. I loved decorating the house, wrapping the gifts, making homemade bows, I even made curtains. LOL I know I'm funny, but as I have gotten older and the kids are growing I just didn't have the time or the care to decorate any more.    
   Well this year I'm home and not working and I'm going to try to bring things back out that I haven't seen in years.
   I started with making a gift, not sure who its going to but I'm doing it. I will try to remember to share it when I'm done making it.
   I'm going to get out the Christmas cards that I started to make a couple years ago. So there will be a couple lucky people to get them.
   I even started a list of the gifts I'm getting. So I think I'm doing pretty good. 
   If anyone has any fun projects for the kids let me know.
   Whats your thoughts on Christmas this year?

 Everything is changing around me. 
 Just looking out my window and seeing the leaves falling off the trees, oh I love fall. It has to be the pretties time of the year.
 The kids are growing up way to fast, the things I have missed doing with them makes me sad but the things I have been able to do with them makes me smile.
 I have a home that is building more and more memories, even with the bad memories we are here and together.
 Friends that I don't get to see know that I have not forgotten about them, even if its just from a poke.
 My parents- Oh how much I love you two, we have had are ups and downs but you have always been there for me. I wish we could spend more time together.
 My son is starting a family, I hope that your life is full of smiles, laughter, and hugs. I love you baby and never forget it.
 And Layne I wish I could stand at your side like I did at one time, family is everything. I miss you more then you know. (note need to call Layne) LOL
 Grandma and Ed u are missed. Love you both.

 I hope everyone has a great day. Love Ya All
