Merry Christmas!!!!'s hard to believe the end of the year has arrived. Seems like just a few weeks ago my kids were going to their first day of school. Where does the time go???? I know I am no different from most other moms, some days I can't wait for my kids to get a little older and other days I just want to cry because they are growing up too fast!! :(
Not much new going on in my life, which is a good thing..LOLL. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving, lots of family over at my house. My brother finally introduced us to his new girlfriend. That was really a big deal...seeing that my brother has never been married and has no children, and he's already past 45. She blended in well with our family, she seems to be a really sweet person and someone I could do things with like you do with your sisters. We've been emailing back and forth and she's basically just amazed that no one else had snatched up my brother before now. He is a die hard romantic and believes in going all out when it comes to the women he dates. He's always been that way, even in his twenties, when he was living with us. I'd see him taking his girlfriends out to fancy restaurants and renting nice cars so they wouldn't have to ride in his gigantic four by four ...hahaha. One time he was going to take his girlfriend to Hawaii....that didn't pan out though and he took our mom instead. How many guys do you know that would take their mom to Hawaii for a week???? Not many!!! It was just sad that every girl my brother dated only cared about what he could do for them..the money he could spend on them and when they decided he wasn't spending what they thought was enough they just screwed him around. Anyhow, she's moving in with him this weekend and I cannot wait to see where it goes after she gets moved in :).
On another note, I just sent off the Christmas gifts for my first daughter and my grandson. I finally finished the blanket I was crocheting..LOL. It was suppose to be a birthday present back in April...oops! Anyhow, it turned out great...if I do say so myself. They should get them by Tuesday. I sent her a package full of things for the baby a few weeks ago, things that belonged to my baby boys. Most of it was Pooh since that is her theme. I sent one of those No Jo or whatever you call em, sling carriers. It's not like the regular carrier, it cradles the baby when they are newborn(great for nursing!) and then when they get older, up into toddler years even, you can still carry them in it. Came with a tape, but who has a VHS player anymore :)?
She did say I can now post pics of her and my grandson so here goes!!! Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!
