It's that time of the year....
Sunday, December 19, 2010
and this has been a busy weekend. Yesterday morning my great niece came for a visit and brought her little girl (my great-great niece). She is such an adorable little child who will be two years old in March.
I laughed at her hair when she took off her winter hat. Her hair was going in every direction. Her mommy usually has it in two pigtails. She seems to grow more each time I see her. She is like a little bolt of lightning darting here and there. I sure can’t keep up with her. Rae, (my sis) and I decided that is the reason why God decided mothers should have their children while they are young as we can’t keep up with them as we grow older.
My brother and sis in law are coming Thursday to spend the night with me. They will head out to northern Illinois on Friday morning to be with their son, DIL, and granddaughter. Thursday is also my son in law’s birthday so it will be a busy day.
I have gifted all of my service people except the mail carrier. She moves so fast it is hard for me to catch up with her. The one most surprised was the garbage man as I gave him a plate of cookies and some money. That is a nasty job and I don’t think that they are appreciated for what they do.
It is cold and cloudy here today. 25 degrees and there is snow/and or freezing rain predicted for the next couple of days. I need to make a grocery store run in the morning and get stocked up. Did you you catch that Boston guy??
