Merry Christmas to the best folks in the world

Saturday, December 25, 2010

Just a fast blog as I have to get dressed.We are going to Bill's brother for dinner today.Angel is going with us as Brianna is going to her boyfriends.
According to facebook my other grand daughter Felicia is now expecting a girl instead of a boy.The fact that I found out on facebook says a lot.
It is a beautiful day here in Florida.Not very Christmasy.Sun is shining brightly and temps are perfect.
Here are some before and after of two of my Christmas cactus

The little white one
Here are my electronic drums.Sounds just like drums.Can change each pad to a different sound. Gives me something to beat my frustrations out. I have no idea how to play drums and but love them. Will have to get ear phones so I don't drive Bill nuts. LOL
Ok Have to get ready. Hope you are all having a great day.

    Drums??? I have no musical or artistic ability. The world needs people like me to appreciate the rest of you.
I got enough gift cards to get my e-reader. I am excited.

Sorry I still haven't got caught up with my sparking.I did get to a lot of blogs but haven't made a dent in responding to people who posted on mine.Please be patient with me.I do appreciate all the kind words. You are all so special to me.
By now all of you with young children are having some excited kids.It is so much fun when they are little.They get so excited.
Bill wants one of those remote control helicopters so I told him I would get it but he has to pick out the one he wants. We have done christmas with kids but we haven't exchanged gifts yet. I can just about guess what he is getting me.He isn't very good at surprising me. But he is all I need anyway. He did get me one of those stuff animal pillows.I sleep with it now.LOL.
I have a few more pictures but they are on other computer.My christmas cactus are all blooming.
Have a wonderful day tomorrow. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Alex is really excited about Christmas. He's having a Starwars Lego Christmas. Right now the kids are in the other room with Jason's family opening presents. I was able to finish the rest of my wrapping so I can relax tonight.

We bought Addison one of those animal pillows. It's the monkey one, go figure!! Jason can't keep a secret from me no matter how hard he tries. He does spoil me though.

Have a Merry Christmas!!

  "But he is all I need anyway." There is no need to wish you a Merry Christmas. You have it all year long with your wonderful relationship.
Take care and enjoy the helicopter. I bought one for Ken a few years back and ended up playing with it more than he did.......

Another short blog

Tuesday, December 21, 2010

Sorry but it has been a very stressful two days.So much drama but it is getting much better. It is too complicatd to explain but somehow i was the bad guy(Sound familier Tillibee)And I didn't do or say anything bad.
But it has been resolved for now. I will never get caught up to you all.I am so sorry.
But end result is that we are going to be great grandparents.We are expecting a great grandson in May. Our grand daughter Felicia just found out she is pregnant. She is almost 21. Her mother has calmed down and made nice with me.It really was bad.Why our children turn on us has never made sense.I never did that to my mother
Now we are hoping Felicia will move back from Texas.I think she will after she has time to think about it.
I will try to catch up some tomorrow.

    Family drama seems to be more at this time of year. It always seems to come at once too. Just try to remember it will pass. Worry about the things you can change and the things you cant change? Well they will always work themselves out. emoticon

    I can certainly identify with family drama. I am not sure why we are always the "cause" but I guess someone has to be. Only take what belongs to you. Sweet Dreams

  How about sending our relatives to that island?, we get to stay here, well on days like today at 71 degrees.
The drama isn't so great for your health and you have enough problems there. Just maybe you can concentrate on the wonderful and beautiful little ones in your family, seems like our grown daughters need Valium or a pop upside the head.

    And how would she being pregnant be your fault? If I remember, you were presented with her going to Texas as a done deal. Oh well, I always assume the other person must be under a lot od stress and lashing out at the person they love the best. emoticon

  At least we can say that "Life is never Dull" with our family dramas. I hope you get some relief from your stress soon. You don't deserve anything but joy........especially during the Holiday Season.
Take care and when you get down, think of that sweet bundle that you will be cuddling next year at this time. emoticon

    Sorry you have been so stressed. This is a very stressful time of year, regardless.
Just take one day at a time...We have no control over the past, it's gone, the present should be enjoyed and the future will take care of it's self! Ask yourself , "Who will care about this in five years?" Kids can break your heart, but you still love them. Isn't that strange?
I know you are excited about the new little one. And looking forward to another new one!

I have been tired today.We have been so busy the last two days. I was happily amazed at how much Bill and I got done.
The party was nice.Some special people didn't make it.It is impossible to find a day that everyone can come. We had 29 people here in our small space. We had 9 people missing.
But everyone had plenty to eat and enjoyed catching up with everyone.We meet the young lady that will probably marry our oldest grand son.She seems very nice and my Daughter in law likes her so that is good.

The boys still tower over me. In this picture the one with long hair took his shoes off and the other two were stretching.He is actually taller than his brothers and is quite proud of it.I think he is now 6'2. I will show you him first.He is 16 and his brothers are 18 and 21

Here is my sister Mary and her two children

And here is Brianna and Michael, I told her she could get close for the picture

So that is a few more pictures
I do have to say they are good about cleaning most of mess up and this year the boys even put all the chairs up which was a big help for Bill. I finished up clearing up a few things today. I also started a small decluttering .I have a small table next to my chair in living room and it is always overflowing. So I am cleaning out drawers in cabinet next to me and will take little table out.
We are going to also take down the small table that we put up at christmas.It is kinda in the way and we don't need it now.
My daughter Joy left all the veggies she brought that were left over.And I am going to cook most of them in oven tonight.And I need to got get them ready to cook.Just have to get them on the cookie sheets and season them.
I still haven't gotten any of my spark stuff done.I am sooooooo far behind.
Oh I just have to tell you this. I had to keep the AC on all day yesterday. We will be in the 70's at least for another week.It is good to live in Florida. Ok Talk to you tomorrow. Stay warm

PS I put the wrong pic of boys up.Someone is making horns in background and it ruined a good pic.

    All so cute! I love big families and wish I had one. It's just lonely little me DH has one sister but they have never been close and his mom and sister have never particularly taken to me...even after almost 33 years...kinda sad. We did try to smooth over some frictions we've had all through our relationship when we went back to visit the sumer before last. It's probably a good thing that we live so far away...MIL's can really be challenging. I always looked forward to being a GREAT MIL to Josh's wife. Too bad I didn't get a crack at that role...I knew exactly what NOT to do from first hand experience with DH's LESSONS I learned! emoticon
