So sorry I didn't get back here last night to make an entry. I was just so tired, so off to bed I went. Well, let's see, where do I start? Christmas eve morning at 8:45 I got a call from my doctor concerning the results of my mammogram. They see something suspicious in my left breast and cannot tell if it is a tumor or a cyst, so he wants another mammogram of the left breast done. It has me worried a little, well it has me worried alot, because history of breast cancer in my family has proved deadly. Every woman in my family who was diagnosed with it has died. I beat my Hodgekins Lymphoma, so I am hoping if this lump is breast cancer I can beat it too. Please keep me in your prayers.
Later that day I went and finished my shopping. Let me tell you, people go crazy over the most stupid toys. Two women were fighting right in the toy isle over a Barney doll. It didn't talk, dance, sing or move at all, but they both wanted it. The knocked a huge display of perfumes and colognes all over the floor. Needless to say I hurried and got in line at the cash register while everyone else ran to see the fight. I then drove to Burger King and bought myself a crispy chicken sandwich from their dollar menu. It's a very tasty sandwich too. Later after the kids ate dinner and were sound asleep in their beds, Emma and I wrapped over 300 gifts, I think maybe it was close to 400 gifts. These children got everything they wanted, plus some. The looks on their faces made staying up til 3am wrapping worth it, lol. I took pictures, I just have to download them.
Christmas day was great. The kids sang Happy Birthday to Jesus, then opened their gifts. Emma and I and Dan and Jim all pitched in and cooked dinner. We made 2 hams, rolled turkey stuffed with homemade stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, baked yams, homemade coleslaw, cranberry sauce, corn, greenbeans, deviled eggs, wheat rolls. 7 pots of coffee was brewed. There was dan & Emma and their 3 kids, Jim and I and Rebecca, Dan's mom, 3 of his brothers, 3 nephews and girlfriends, a friend and his mom and girlfriend, plus 2 other kids totaling 23 people. It was a long day for sure. I was so happy to put the kids to bed, because shortly after that's what I did, was go to bed, lol.
Well, the kids don't go back to school until January 5th. They've been good though, keeping busy playing with their toys, laptops and Rebecca goes outside to play with her scooter. The girls are in my room watching tv, Daniel and Adrianna are down for a nap. Dan is resting on the couch watching tv and Jim is in the kitchen. Emma went to go get a tan and to grocery store.
I guess that is about all there i to write about so I will go now. Take care, stay safe , and have a wonderful New Year.
LOVE TO ALL..............................................CINDY
