Well, there it is, our tree. It turned out a little dark so you can't really see the little wooden ornaments and other decorations on it. Now if I can only keep my child from getting under it saying she is hiding in the forest, lol. She has already knocked one branch off and I had to put it back on and the bottom strand of lights also. She asked how come it doesn't smell like the ones outside. It's fake honey, it don't smell. She then tells me we should spray it with airfreshener so it can have a smell, lol. I just put the lil stinker to bed. When she gets over tired she is a handful. 8:pm comes and it's bedtime. I didn't tell her the Eagles were on tonight, cause if I did she would want to stay up and watch them, I don't think so, no way, mommy and daddy need a bit of quiet time.
I want to remind everyone of The Giving Tree, founded by Angie/CanyonSun. This is a wonderful thing she has put together. If it weren't for her and the help she gave me when Jim lost his job, we wouldn't of eatten for a few days. But thanks to her we had a hot meal and Rebecca had snacks. Also she helped me with gifts for Rebecca for christmas. Angie is such a great lady. Please email her at CanyonSun04@aol.com and see if there is a way you can help someone in need this christmas season or with food. There is so many people out there who struggle on a daily basis to just put a roof over their heads or food on the table and have nothing left over to buy shoes, or a warm coat or a pair of mittens for their child. I know how it feels to worry about having something for your child to eat or worrying if there is even gonna be a christmas this year.
I want to share a couple pictures with you of my Rebecca. She received a package in the mail friday, from a very special friend here in JLand. I have been asked not to give out the name of the person, so out of respect for our friendship I cannot say who this special person is. I do want this person to know, that we think this person is awesome.Rebecca loved the beautiful gifts, and I loved mine also. Yep, I got gifts also. A beautiful little vase and 2 bags of the most wonderful smelling potpourie. I know I spelled that wrong, lol. Rebecca received a hummingbird feeder and food, which we are going to save for spring to hang outdoors when we are moved. She got a beautiful soft as cotton puppy, a bunch of art items like colored pencils, crayons, glitter pens, paper tablet and a beautiful Princess Rapunzel Barbie. She will be drawing and coloring in pictures of birds and turtles to send to this special person. So here she is:
Just look at her smile, is that precious or what? Here is another pic of her closer up, but the smile faded, because I was in the way of her watching tv, lol.
Well there's my lil girl. And her gifts she received. Tomorrow Rebecca and I will spend some time at the table drawing and coloring. She loves it when I join her in things like that. She loves drawing and coloring. She gets that from her Daddy. He is very good at oil painting, and he went to school to be an architect but never persue'd it. So, a great big thank you goes out to the person who sent these lovely gifts. We love you.
Well, all day today I have had this nagging sharp pain on the right side of my back between shoulder blade and back bone. It just won't let up. So, I think I am going to go take myself a very hot shower and put the shower head on massage and let it hit my back for a while. So take care everyone and have a wonderful evening and an even better tomorrow.
I would like to thank Debbie of Derasta Creation for this lovely name tag.
