God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. Amen.
--Reinhold Niebuhr
"Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It's not something you learn in school. But, if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything."

Thank you dear friends your love and prayers the are truly felt. I appreciate them more then you will ever know. Thank you thank you thank you! And God Bless each and everyone one of you.

Please remember our other sisters that have special needs at this time also.

And yes ladies I submitted to Paper Trunks Design Team. I'm sure I will be telling you I got a thanks but no thanks. Most teams want people that have star power or have at least been published and we know how hard it is to get published with all the stuff that's happened in the last year.

Oh well at least I have fun doing it. But, I've really got to find something else to scrap besides my beautiful Granddaughters :) I was hunting for something other then that to submit and there isn't much else. Supposedly we are supposed to get snow this weekend. I'm actually hoping we get a little so that I'll have something other then baby pictures ;) I know who would have expected that from me :)

I started on my DT stuff for LPS tonight; I need to get a couple of pictures printed. I'm using pictures of my snowmen :) I had 2 snowmen and then my Secret Santa got me a cute one. So I'm up to 3 plus a little tiny stuffed one. I would like to have a few more I think they make something cute you can keep out all winter. I will try to get up to Joann's just before the holiday's are over to get another one. Right now they have 50% off on the Christmas stuff including snow people.

Can you believe I didn't even bother putting a tree up? I just can't seem to get in the spirit with Cortes so sick and Christmas up in the air. If Cortes is to sick we are going to pack up and take everything to Sabrina's. We aren't going to make Cortes suffer and have to drive down here.

If Cortes feels up to it Sabrina, Brian, Mikaela and Jerod and Erin will be down for Christmas day Jerod and Erin will have Christmas with her family on Christmas eve and then we will spend Christmas day with us at my mom's.

I want to get a 4 generation photo, we have yet to get a decent one of us. I would also like a picture of Jerod and Erin together and Sabrina and Brian together as well as one with the 4 kids together and with mom :) And of course a family photo.

I'm going to get off of here and head to bed. Thank you again to all my dear friends for the love and prayers for my family! God Bless each one of you and your families, much love from my family to yours.

Aww Jane, I wish you all the wellness and happiness this holiday season. I hope it all goes smoothly. I say just put up the tree. I wasn't in the spirit either , but when I got that tree up and played the music, somehow there it was, must have been packed in the tree box!
