Christmas has past and thank goodness I thought I was going crazy. We had a beautiful Christmas with tons of food and lots of work for me. Shawny came on Christmas Eve and we enjoyed her so much! Santa did not miss our house. I am so sad I took pictures on Christmas Eve and the photo card is not recognised when I put it in the computer. I wanted to show you Shawny's quilt but no such luck.

Well the new year is upon us and I hope I can be a little nicer. I want to serve more and I am really going to try and study regularly. Oh and be healthy. How about you?

One week to go ladies are you ready? I am racing to get mine done but to no avail. I lost a couple of days due to my husband having the Stake Missionary Prep class here last night and you know how we women have to have things done. It went really nice they had a nice desert and the house was clean for them. My husband was happy and that is what counts. So now I am trying to get all my hand made things done so I can breathe. One thing that has really helped me this year is me playing the Christmas music often. It is inspiring. I will be ready when the holiday is over to sit down and veg with a really good book . Any suggestions?

Look what I woke up to this morning. Oh it was so beautiful and I couldn't wait to get out in it and make a snowman, but then ...... I woke up. I can always just have fun with my grandson so we are watching the Grinch and then Horton Hears A Who , Thats just as good as snow.

I have to hurry and get this post up before my sis. This little ornament was given to me by my great grandmother when I was a little girl and she goes up on my tree very first after the lights. I miss my grandma Jones bless her heart.

Are we having fun yet? This weekend I finally got my tree up and am almost decorated. Started choir practice for the sunday before Christmas and we are singing Christmas Hymns in church. I love this. Our Family got to enjoy our church Christmas Devotional from Salt Lake last night also and it was even cold enough for hot chocolate.

I know this year is hard for most of us but if we can just get down to basics and enjoy and remember what the season is really about we will all feel a little better. Our Heavenly Father Loves us and he is there for us whenever we need him. Let's serve one another.

Love this time of year!!!! A time to reflect on the Saviors birth a time to forget about ourselves and serve others. Love the chill in the air and feeling good about wearing clothes (that is an Arizona thing). Love the warm fuzzies we get when we listen to Christmas music. I love the family time together. Last night we watched Santa Clause Three a pretty corny movie but we had popcorn (homemade not microwave) and laughed alot. Try to do something every night with your family in December you will love it.

We had a fun filled holiday with all our family together Vickie and I cooked our hearts out , the boys got dirty and we got to see Shawny for a little while.

The boys managed to stay in one piece while the men who,think they are kids managed to get hurt as usual. My sister and I had lots of fun and I enjoyed having her here. I love my sister so much and I miss her all ready.

Nothing like sisters having fun and making everyone laugh. That is what we do and we love it. Vicie and I took my son s East LA truck for a drive with the music thumping and everything. Tristan and Meigen were excited to see each other , They love to laugh. I am wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy family and friends and rejoice in Thanksgiving.

I am blessed to have my little grandson spend a few days with me while his sister is on the mend. Last night we watched the movie Wall E and had pizza and popcorn and had a blast. This morning he wants to know how many days till his buddies get here. Next week is not a good enough answer. I am so thankful for family, friends a good movie, a home and a wonderful husband that works so hard to make things possible and also for a Heavenly Father that gave it all to us!

I havent had time to blog cause I am getting ready for the cousins! We are so excited. I have changed my whole house around in anticipation for my sister. Anyone who knows me knows I have a problem with things staying the same in my house but I got to tell you I think I am getting to old for this moving furniture around. I am really trying to make my house the party barge for the Fitzsimmons and it will be totally worth it. Uncle Perry has plans!

Halloween grands

I am a little slow in getting a couple photos of my grand babies on Halloween up. So here they are Trinitee was a little devil (very true at times) She was so cute and Austin was Iron Man. Austin is fine as long as he doesn't have to wear a mask. He is such a sweet little guy and isn't to sure about the whole "scary" thing. I am so blessed to have such wonderful grand kids ,I love them so much.
