My neighbor down the street, Kelly always does something nice for Madison for Christmas. This year she made her a little throw blanket...I told her it was so cute, she told me if I bought her some material she would make me one. So last night I took Bill to Joann's and I bought all the supplies. Well today Kelly came over and brought me my blanket....I LOVE IT!!! Thank you Kelly!

Never look down when walking behind a store because the dumpster will reach out and attack you...If you think Zane's face looks bad you should see the dumpster!
Zane is a Security Guard for the Malls at Lake Havasu and was out on patrol late at night and it was raining, he thought he had seen something lying on the ground. Looked down to see what it was and that's when the dumpster grab him.
Only a mother with blackmail on her mind would post this on her blog while talking to her hurt son...Hee hee! (he says, "He feels special!")
For those of you that don't know the whole story, here is a short version. Jamie and family found out they were moving to Ft. Campbell, Kentucky instead of Korea (yeah right!) well they didn't expect it til next year. HA HA HA....Almost 2 weeks ago they found out they had 10 days to move out of their house and move to Ft. Campbell in 11 after that. That gives them NO time for slowing down at all!....
So time was spent....1. packing the house 2. getting car fixed from a boo boo 3. Jamie getting all the paperwork done for the move and housing in Kentucky 4. paying off bills 5. having all phones and etc. turned off 6. Returning Christmas gifts so they don't have to pack them all up 7. not being able to get passports in time for Mary and the boys to ride with Jamie, so buying plane tickets to Seattle 8. Jamie having to drive the car to Seattle 9. and all the Etc's......
So Mary and the boys made it safely to Seattle and waiting for Jamie.
Now Jamie's side of the adventure...1. spinning out on black ice and having to dig his way out of the snow bank with no shovel 2. almost hitting a Caribou standing in the middle of the road on a mountain corner 3. hitting black ice again at 20 miles an hour and breaking the plastic piece from underneath the car, which is alright as long as he was ok! 4. eating on the run 5. not stopping to use the bathroom (I know TMI) 6. not getting to much sleep 7. making it to Seattle at 3am this morning...SAFE! 8. A mother not worrying anymore!
I am so grateful to my Heavenly Father for keeping them all safe on their journey and the journey's they have yet to face.
So they will spend the day in Seattle and then drive to Arizona to spend Christmas with us, I am so excited! Can't wait to see those grand boys of mine....I will be posting ALOT of pictures.

As I sit and ponder about the next couple of days and what I have to endure. I am grateful for what I have and for what I have gone through in my life so far. I know my Heavenly Father has given me personal challenges to go through and to learn and over come...I am grateful for each one of them. I am grateful to a loving mother and father who raised me and cared for me. I am grateful for a loving family and in laws that take care of me when needed and loves me. To a wonderful husband who puts up with all my odd moments and still loves me. To my 5 loving children, their spouses and my adorable Grandchildren! I cherish each moment we have together and the memories we have made and to those we have yet to make... To my friends that I have, the kind words when I have needed them, a call at the right time, a taco bell run or for just a smile down a long hallway! I am blessed with some much in my life, thank you.
I love the poem "Footprints" the part I like best is when it says, "He whispered,"My precious child, I love you and will never leave you never, ever, during your trails and testings. When you saw only one set of footprints it was then I carried you."
