Hi everyone. The clock is ticking down to Christmas. Things are about ready here—a few more goodies to make and the cleaning will be finished today. I still want to do all the bedding in the boys’ rooms so they are freshened up. We’ve been stocking up on painting supplies as the 50% coupons come in—except for brushes, I should be good to go until March. My favorite stencil brushes for the signs have been discontinued and all we can find locally are the cheap ones made for kiddie crafts. They don’t work when you need to make hundreds of signs! Al has been searching and has finally located a possible supplier…..what a relief! Thursday we pick Craig up at the airport. It will be so good to see him again…I so wish we lived a bit closer and got to see him more often. Brian will be here on Friday. His most recent MRI was the same as the last, and I am so grateful the tumor hasn’t grown any. He is following his very strict healthy diet and working out every day to stay strong.
I can’t tell you how great the feeling is when we are , once again, all under the same roof…..
The other day, when we were out and about, I turned the corner in the store and did a double take…
This fella was as tall as me…I noticed quite a few people taking a second look….and the looks on the faces of the kids were priceless! I heard one little girl, after watching this guy for a few minutes, wisely tell her mom….”I don’t think he’s real”. Tomorrow I will post a longer Merriment post of the entire Christmas Tree Lane. Enjoy the wonder in the eyes of your little ones this Christmas season…Oh, the Merriment!! –Jan
