Christmas Memories

It's almost Christmas, I love this time of year! It's not the same as it was years ago when we had those mornings when we would wale up at 5 or 6 a.m. and watch our children open their gifts. There's nothing like it in the world and I so much miss those times. I miss the fun Christmas eve's we would have when the kids would open their p.j.'s and Santa would come visit them, and tell them to make sure they went to bed and go to sleep,so he could come back.
Now it's our kid's turn to do all that fun stuff. One thing I don't miss is the wrapping of all the gifts, when there is 7 children with gifts, that's alot of wrapping. I also loved taking the kids shopping to buy gifts for their brother's and sister's, the way they would pick names out of a bowl and then we would have to figure out how to seperate them when we would shop,so that they wouldn't see what they were getting each other. I remember going to Jobber's Odd Lot and be in that super crowded place and try and get to the checkers buy the gifts and get out alive, it was crazy but so much fun! So to all of you out there that are stressing and worrying about how it's ever going to come together....this is the best times of your lives and it will be fun and you'll make memories that will last a lifetime. Merry Christmas everyone!!!!!

So this is December, the last month of 2010, this year had flown by.
We had a fun trip to S.L.C. at Thanksgiving, Maxine and Mark and family were so good to us,and we had a great time. We ate turkey and all the trimmings,soooo good. Maxine set the table with everything Chicago Bears for Mark, it was his birthday also, we even wore party hats!
Then on Friday we all went to Leana's, dad was at her house,and it was his birthday so we went to see him and wish him a happy birthday. While there we got to get to see 3 adoreable new babies, and hold them . So much fun, plus getting to see the rest of her family that was there. We got to eat some yummy birthday cake and ice cream.
Then very early on Saturday morning we got to go with Shane,Anngee,and thier children, and see them be sealed in the S.L. Temple. It was absolutely wonderful!! We were blessed to have dad and Dockie, Rochelle and Scott, Leana and Calvin,Natalie and Nathan, a couple of Shane and Anngee's bishops and Wayne Perkins. Afterwards Anngee's parents had a luncheon at Golden Corral, and they invited all the families of both Shane and Anngee's . They are such great people, we thank her parents for being so good to everyone. We are so happy that everything went so well that whole day.
We got to see our 5 children that live there in S.L. and we were so glad that all of them are doing great.
So on Sunday we headed for home. What a day. It snowed and we were on the freeway and it was like being in a parking lot!!! There were soooo many accidents and slide off's, the tow trucks had a great day I'm sure, the rest of us...not so much! We were so glad to get home....the animals were REALLY happy to see us,we had all 4 of them sleep with us.
On Monday...we slept in, and then started getting out Christmas stuff to decorate the inside of the house,we did the outside of the house before we left. Anyway the next morning when I tried to get up I couldn't move...My back was out and stayed that way till this morning. I'm so glad it's decided to let me walk and sit now.
We are looking forward to the Christmas season and love the happiness it brings. So I hope everyone has a super and happy Christmas. Keep Smiling!! See ya next year!!!
