Introducing the newest addition to my family. This beautiful baby girl is the daughter of my niece Donna who lives in Virginia. This is Skylar Avery Turner. She was born November 11th. Weighing in at 7lbs 14oz and 21 inches long. Mother and daughter are doing fine. Donna says she is such a good baby. Donna and Danny congrats to you on bringing such a beautiful baby girl into this world. And Anthony, congrats on becoming a big brother. And to the grandma (my Sister Lucy) congrats grandma, how many grandkids now? Oh yea, 9 of them. Donna gave me permission to add her baby into my journal. Thank you Donna, love ya kiddo. Give Sky kisses for me.
I bought my tree today. A 6 1/2 foot artificial white tree. Only 19.99 at Family Dollar. Kmart wanted 69.99 for a 4ft white tree, rip-off. I got 200 white lights, and white light star, and red balls and purple balls. There Rebecca and I favorite colors, her's being red and mine being purple. And I am going to put silver bows I made about 12 years ago on it also. I wanted to put it up tonight, but Mr. Humbug was grouchy and said it isn't even December yet. He's always grouchy in december. I don't know why. I leave a dollar or two for him after christmas shopping, lol. Speaking of that, I haven't even started on that yet. Last minute shopping I guess this year. I won't be doing the christams dinner this year. My daughter is. Thanksgiving took alot out of me, not to mention the pain I was in. I made that entire meal myself and it was alot of work. Even cleaned the mess myself. I don't know if I mentioned it, but I fell down the steps again. This time only 8 steps and not the full 14. But this is the third time now and it caused so much pain in my right knee. It's not swollen or bruised, but it does hurt if I move it wrong, and it is making cracking noises when I bend it. I am keeping an eye on it, and if it does get worse I will go to the doctor's.
Monday I didn't have to help Rebecca's teacher. So I spent the day with Emma and Daniel and Adrianna. Dan came home early from work due to rain and wind, so Emma and Daniel and I went out and Dan watched Adrianna. We took Daniel to get his hair cut, then to lunch and while we were out Dan called my cell and said Hollywood Tan's called and Emma won their contest. She said I won what? Cause she never entered a contest. When she started going there she used my email address. Well earlier this month I got an email asking for her to enter to win a contest. So I entered her, and she won. It was a gift basket worth 204.00. She was so excited and happy. It reminded me of when she was little and would wake up easter morning to see a great big basket full of all kinds of goodies for her. I took a couple pics of her coming out the door with her basket and a couple at home of the things in it. Also took some of Daniel and his mommy at the pizza place. And of course a couple of Adrianna. And of course the first pic is a pic of my computer screen with Adrianna on it, lol. I just love that pic of her.
Jim has my web cam hooked up, but he can't figure out how to get the microphone to work. It gives no directions for it either. He'll get it working sooner or later, he always does.
The past couple days at school have been rough. Yhe kids are so noisey, a couple of them will wet themselves, there's 2 that are constantly hitting on other kids, 2 that cry over stupid things, and 2 that are always falling out of their chairs. The only time they are quiet is movie time. Since I have no VCR now, I took in a bunch of Walt Disney movies. Today they watched Ice Age, and wow was it quiet in the classroom. While they watched the movie, the teacher and I got their homework assignments in their books, 100 book challenges done, and Behavior charts filled out. The teacher had to call the office 3 times today. The wall thermometer said it was 92 in the classroom and I believe it was too. Everyone was complaining they were hot. Finally after Rebecca's face got so red and she said she felt funny the teacher called again and said it was an emergency to turn off the heat, it was turned off. We gave Rebecca some cool paper towels to rub her face and neck with to cool her off. We opened a couple windows and after about 15 minutes it was 20 degree's cooler. What a relief!!!
Well, I guess that is about it for now. I have been getting to journals slowly. Manage to get to about 10 alerts a day. I am forever being interrupted and it's hard to read and comment when people are bothering you. Anyways, I will get to your journals. I hopeeveryone has a good evening and a better tomorrow.
Love to all.........................
