In the Books...

Another Christmas is in the books.
It was good for LN as it is for kids.
No pressure, no pain, just presents!
My girls remembered me with some sheepy stuff as they know Mama likes sheep.
I was visited by my son which is rare and I received a hug and Merry Christmas which is rarer.
All and all a good deal for me.

LN had a secret Santa exchange with friends at school.
She loved her Sloth shirt.
She came off the bus screaming at me to look at the coolest gift ever!

This was a foot year for LN.
She was gifted 3 pairs of boots (decorative teenager styles) and a pair of Sperrys' (boat shoes or top/docksides for us of a certain age).
She's also wrapped her show bling belt around her neck and is sporting her new denim shirt.
I crack up as she requests the same styles as what I wore as a teenager but proclaims it new and fresh.
Yes it was cold her on Christmas and windy but she had fed up and said she was hot, hence shorts.

Finally ME! I was wearing my son's wrestling letter coat.
It just hangs in the closet so I figured might as well get some use out of it.
It's two sizes too big but warm and next football season I can pile hoodies under it.


  1. Ah yes, Christmas really is for kiddies! (And sloth t-shirts.)

    P.S. You're lookin' purdy good in your son's wrestling jacket!

    1. Thank-you MamaPea, I feel closer to my son when I wear his stuff. He doesn't come around enough. I know you appreciate your daughter daily visits but know if they stop it's heartbreaking.

  2. COOL sloth shirt! Going to have to see if I can find one for my sister.
    Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. Keep wearing his jacket, it will keep you warm in more ways than one :)

    1. Carolyn, the boy said he bought it online. He googled sloths and a lot of sites popped up. What would we do without google?
