Christmas Memories

I was a little blue over the weekend because Tito is still in rehab for his knee and we do not know when he will be home (hopefully before Christmas - hopefully before this weekend). A few things lifted my spirits - Friday night was Crazy Bunco and Sunday was our Women's Group Christmas Brunch and ornament exchange. Both events are looked forward to all year and both made me laugh.

Rocco also stayed with me and we went to visit Tito on Saturday. He brought smiles to many faces.

I was sitting Sunday afternoon and noticed the Sock Reindeer that was a gift to Nathan on his first Christmas. (I know it is his and I really do have good intentions to make my own, I am only keeping it for a pattern!). I started thinking about all the Christmas memories with Nathan - his second Christmas when he redecorated one or two branches of the tree everyday - the year he had to have the Fisher Price Western Town and carried the ad around for weeks (he also let us know that it wasn't the right one because the color of the roof in the ad was different) - the Christmas Eve he proposed to Stacy - so many wonderful memories.

Next year he and Stacy will start their own memories with Kaiden and so will we.

I still have Tod’s lego Santa (it has about 14-15 pieces) that I have every intention of giving to him. Some day. So don’t feel bad about the monkey. Come to think about it I also have his lego bunny. Oops Fayette

Christmas memories are good to have. This Christmas will be great, wherever it is spent. I look forward to when Gobo is born and I can hold him.

Ode to Kaiden Christopher Blay

Kaiden Christopher Blay
This Christmas will be A-Okay
You will not yet be born
When you are we will eat corn
to celebrate the day
that you first came to stay
Merry Christmas Kaiden,
you are made in...
