We spent Christmas Eve at Monica’s – it was a bit wierd without dad. Jason couldn’t read the Christmas story so Chelsey read it for us. Then we opened our gifts. It ended up being kinda an early night. Dave was not able to make it because of the snow we had this year. so for the first time in Jason and Chelssy’s lives, it was just the three of us for most of the day. Just before dinner Tim came and Jason’s friend Sean came also. We had a great dinner of Prime Rib Roast thanks to Uncle Dave. 🙂
I did get a little baking done and all the gifts wrapped. Still need to bake somemore to take to work but then I am done.
Tim did drive up just for about an hour today – it was nice he came but not long enough. Weather was too bad for him to stay.
real. Neither of us were looking
to date or be in a relationship, but it just happened. He is so good to me, he is such a gentle soul, even though he would like for every one to believe he is gruff. LOL. Anyway. he is such an amazing man and I am so glad we found each other.
Got a few Christmas decorations up, the rest will go up on Monday I think. Got a bit of Christmas shopping done.
All in all it was a good day.
Oh – and Happy Birthday Mendi – sure miss you guys!
Wow – went downstairs today and saw the ruins of Thanksgiving Day – really it wasn’t too bad. Yesterday was a good day, family and friends near. some family far away. I missed the Everett Family, and Chesley, but we had a good day of eating, being lazy, and watching football.
Today I am a bit sluggish – think I need a nap. But they frown on that at work, it is slow at work today, but today that is welcome.
Ended the day by going to Tim’s, we dropped by to see his niece and nephew. Conner and Erika, Conner was mostly absorbed in the Wii making a crazy Mii and playing Marion brothers. Erika was thrilled to see me, she calls me Dev. She is very cute and very smart for a 3 year old. These two make me miss my family in Brasil. After a bit of play it was dinner time. Pizza, yum. watched a bit of TV – well kinda – I kept falling asleep and missing parts.
Beaver’s game is Saturday – Big Civil war – should be exciting!
So today is Thanksgiving – a good day to start a blog. A good day to look back on the year and remind myself of all I have to be thankful for. So much has changed in the last year or so. I changed from a job that I had been with for 23 years to a job with the state. A story for another blog. I have begun a new relationship after 24 years of singleness. My kids are both great and doing what they think God wants them to. They have grown to be wonderful godly adults.
Grandma was here for dinner – she is 95. Going strong for her age. Chelsey was in Virginia, Tim was still in Lebanon but showed up later for pie. Jason & Dave were here as well as two of Jason’s friends Tim and Carolynn. We had a great day.
I am truly thankful for the life I live and the life I have had. I realize that God has always been in control and has lead me on this path to where I am now.
