Merry Christmas!

It's the night before Christmas Eve and the year is almost over. My hope is that each of us may feel the real spirit of Christmas and keep it in our hearts.
Have a joyous Christmas!

Christmas Letter

Dear Family and Friends,

In the spirit of the holidays once again I am taking the opportunity of not writing a Christmas letter. Instead Ralphie aka the little dog and her big sister Precious aka the cat will be doing the honors. I am hoping between them the spelling and punctuation will be correct.

I still have mixed feelings on Christmas letters some are amusing, others are bragging, then there are those that get you all caught up on the comings and goings of a family.

In this day of high tech it is amazing how hard it is for us to keep in touch with each other. I miss getting letters in the mail, maybe I should miss writing them and do better in that area.

Well back to the matter at hand. These two little girls have been waiting to get their paws on the computer. I hope they remember "No ordering toys", besides the fact their daddy hid the credit card from them.


Dear family and friends,

How are you? We are fine. Merry Christmas.

Mommy said if me and Precious played nice that we would get a present. If you say "me and Precious" really fast it sounds like "mean Precious". Sometimes Precious is mean, when she hides behind something and jumps out at me, it isn't nice and I have to run away from her. Then she chases me sometimes and makes a hiss noise at me and tries to hit me with her paw. That's ok cause sometimes she tries scratching mommy's really old chair and I have to run up to her and growl and bark. She doesn't like that, but it makes me happy!

Mommy got married in June. She didn't think she'd ever do that again after my first daddy died. We both miss him sometimes. My new daddy married mommy and bought us a house. There is a big yard for Precious and me to play in.

When Heather brings over the girl and boy I still like to get on mommy's lap to keep from getting chased by them. They are better now about petting me soft.

In the mornings I get to go babysit Grandma. I let her take me for walks, feed me treats and hold me. I also take naps on her bed. I give her kisses and let her rub my tummy.


Dear People,

My person (daddy) got married for the first time ever to Ralphie's mommy (dogs drool, cats rule). At first I wasn't happy about having a dog for a little sister, now it's alright, I have explained that big sisters are supposed to tease little sisters.

I enjoy the days that Ralphie gets to go babysit, I like having the house to myself. I am happy to see everyone when they come home from work though. Daddy is so good he knows to feed me first, then to fix dinner for mommy.

It's fun when the girl and boy come over to play. I run and hide. Sometimes I have to come out and see what they are doing. The girl talks nice to me, the boy looks like he wants to pull my tail. I have to tease Cory a little bit cause he's allergic to cats.

Daddy got us a huge Christmas tree. Heather and her babies decorated it for us. There is a pretty ball on the tree just the right height for me to bat at over and over, I like it.

Daddy takes care of all of us. He plays with me when I want him to, he lets me take a nap in his lap. He's a good daddy. Mommy is alright, she takes care of daddy and makes him laugh. Daddy likes her a lot, but I'm still his Precious!

Merry Christmas,

December 6

It was a very good day. We started singing Christmas carols at church.
It's beginning to look a little like Christmas around our house. The tree is up with lights and 3 ornaments on it. I really need to get it taken care of. We have most of our presents bought. The cat sleeps by the tree at times.

I have been thinking of how Christmas changes ever so slightly from year to year. This will be my first Christmas in my own house is a long time. Granted I have lived in an apartment in the past several years, but there is something a bit different. Maybe it's more hiding places for presents. Poprock dragged out the Christmas tubs and low and behold the decorations I was looking for were not there, where can they be I wonder. I have been given instructions that this is not the year that the whole house gets decorated, just wait until next year. I really need to finish the tree though.

It was announced in church today that we will be doing a service project instead of having a ward dinner. I 'm excited about that, it should be interesting.

What are you thankful for?
I am thankful for my family. The quirks, the craziness, the very fact that no matter what or where or anything they are and always will be my family.
I am so thankful for Rick. What a guy. I am loved, spoiled and taken care of.
I am thankful for a daughter and son-in-law and my darling little grand babies.
Oh, I can't forget the little dog or Rick's cat.
Of course there are many more things, especially the things that most of us take for granted to those things that some may not think of. For me it is sometimes not easy to be thankful for my AFO, yet it helps me to be able to walk and not trip over my foot. I wish I didn't have it, yet I'm grateful that I do.
I actually was able to feel thankful for the talent of being able to play the piano and organ yesterday. I was very grateful for being able to play.
What about you?

Fall is in the air, with a hint of the coming winter.
We have leaves falling in our yard. The big spiders have disappeared, so far not into the house. Ralphie (the little dog) and Precious (the white cat) are getting along a little better, they are sisters now and should be more tolerant of each other. Precious is spending more time inside. She comes into the room where we are and plays. Sometimes Ralphie even tries to chase her now.
Poprock still has green toes, he says they stay until the Ducks lose. Go Ducks!
There are thoughts of the holidays. Ideas for presents.
I love this time of year. It's a good time to remember the past and cherish it. To dream about what the future holds and make plans. A good time to make the most of each day and live.
We went to Aunt Erma's Celebration of Life this week. There were a few bitter/sweet moments while looking at the photos and seeing several of her and dad together.

Introducing the Girl and her Poprock. It was so exciting! We had the fun of having the grand-babies spend the night last month. Please notice the skill that was used in painting Poprock's toes a wonderful shade of Duck green (Go Duck's). I have to say that Poprock was a really good sport and is still proudly parading green toes. A little someone else is still talking about painting Poprock's toes.

Surprising enough I am doing better. Are you?

Let's Do Better

Honestly my blog was started with the best of intentions. The intention to write often. The intention to make meaningful posts or at least meaningful to me. Actually this blog is for me, if there is anyone else who is able to take something from it that is a bonus.

I would like to live my life with the intention of making each day better than the last. Better meaning that I am striving to be a better person. Now I understand that just as in my favorite quote there will be dust, cinders and jolts, the idea is to be better. We all know that some days just happen to be better than the rest.

Today at this moment I am better at writing on my blog. It's been a month, where has that month gone. I made the choice today to stay at church and play the piano for Primary, rather that go to mass with Mr. B. I have to look at this as a choice, as my comfort zone is Primary. I love being in Primary, it's easy for me to play the songs, even with mistakes made. Today was also the first day I played the organ for our new ward. Yep I made some humdinger mistakes which no one seemed or were to polite to notice. There is a part of my that wants to say "I don't want to play anymore, I want to be able to do something else" then the other part that is very content to play because I do enjoy it. So I must do better.

Now that I have your attention.

Let us ponder for a moment, wait what should we ponder...?

It's very hot outside, I love my central air. I've never had it in a house before.
The real test will be this winter when it is cold, will my house be warm?

Have you ever looked in the mirror and seen your mother?
Or in my case saw my mother and said something a sister would say, that's scary.

Actually I have been contemplating Christmas and making presents.
I thought of crocheting slippers for the entire family, as in all of them. Not to worry it's not going to happen this year. I am going to come up with something.

Hmmmm, must ponder some more.

I wonder can that cause insanity?

Oh a happy thought. Babies, with dimbles on their little hands and baby smiles.
So maybe all is right with the world.

"Fresh Courage Take"

After a weekend of verbally having the stuffing beat out of me it is time to re stuff, so to speak.
I must re-store, re-plenish, re-vitalize myself.


Kick back and have one heck of a pity party.

No pity parties, too much to do, wait re-phrase that, there is too much that I want to do.
Golly I have a house that I can do stuff to. Put things where I want (yes, the Mr. can change things).
I want (oops) need to be creative.
Now I must get busy!
