Of noble kind

So I was out to day around other people I met and they where talking about what their kids wanted for Christmas. They asked their kids if they could have just one thing what would they want and they where asking for $300-$400 things. Ok did I mention I am talking about 11 year olds? My kids are getting one thing, but I was not about to share that with them. On the way home I could just cry. At first I thought about not being able to do that for my children, and then about Tom’s parents buying us a Christmas tree last year so we would have one. Then I thought about the last two years of the simple Christmas we have had and the thing we did to make it a special season. I thought about the service we did for others and the service that was done for us. I thought about the friendship and love felt during that time and the feeling that still linger. We are not completely in a different position then we where in last year and I plan to do the something, focusing on the love of our savor and sharing that with others. I hope this is a gift that will stay with my children for ever, and when they think of Christmas they will remember the feelings of love. I am also so grateful that my children are happy and that what ever kind of Christmas they have they will be grateful. Personal I think Christmas can be over done and the reason for the season can get stiffed with all the shopping, tape, raping paper, list of gifts, line, and credit card bills. I know I sound so cynical but having both kinds of Christmas and we have had some good ones, I think it is so important to balance both the holiday and the spirit of Christmas. It’s a bit early for this but, I wish you all a very Merry Holiday Season.

SAD, SAD, SAD is this day. I have been a fan and devoted to E.R since the age of 14. My mom would let me stay up on Thursday nights with her to watch the show. I have been home every Thursday night just to see E.R. Well last night was the last, the finish of the series. I will miss E.R, but at least I have reruns to get my fix.

Brett and Tommy through some good hits there was a right a left, a combo some good foot work and a little blood all the makings of a good fight. Brett came out to win the boxing match. We have a sun room dedicated to MMA where the kids including Tom will go out there to MMA fight. The kids love it. Brett has been walking around with his chest a little puffed out and so proud of his accomplishment. I have to say that Tom has posted this as well, but I took the picture and even went and got the camera, so I think this picture belongs to me. Thank you Tom for sending me the picture through email.

This is Ty my nephew after his first hair cut. I got to give him a bath, isn't he the cutes? This is also the last time I saw him before we moved, he his going to change so much. Hopefully he will be just as cuddly, and not scared of me. I love all my nephews and necies and wish I could have them around me, fill them full of sweets then send them home with hugs and kisses. xoxoxox for all of them.

McCain doing what Obama hasn't done, serving our country. I am so sad that McCain has lost. I think we are in for it.

David had a field trip last weak to the pumpkin patch, I was luck to get to go with him. I went to his class room and he grabbed my hand and didn’t let go for the better part of the day. I had 3 kids in my group that where very pleasant to be with, it made for a good day. The place we went to has a corn maze, hay ride, petting zoo, play ground, and a pumpkin patch. We had a sack lunch out side and did all the activities. A few days after the field trip I went to his class again and helped carve pumpkins and had a little party. Hopefully I will be able to do some fun things with the other kidos.

Fall Running

Today the wind was blowing lightly making the big yellow and red leaves fall from the trees. It was about 75 degrees out and was a beautiful day so we had to go out for a run. Tom rode his bike as I ran about 3 miles. The streets and side walks are full of the colorful leaves and the wind kept it at a nice temperature to make it a very pleasant run. The hills are great and will hopefully lift areas needed lifting. I have been working out more to drop some pounds that need to come off. I have a plan of motivating events that are coming up that I think will help me to achieve my goal. I and Tom are speaking in church on Nov 30, so that should get me through November. I want to look good for Christmas pictures, Brett is getting baptized in March and we will have family here, and the big one is my brother is getting married in March and that is my deadline to achieve my goal. I think I have a good time frame and I will be able to do it. If this fall weather keeps up I should be able to get some good running in.

Brett was out side and discovered the fun of jumping in the leaves, I saw him out there and had to join in the fun he was having. All the other kids joined in and the Nabor kids came over as well. It was good fun. We really love the fall, if you can’t tell.

We are finally settling in here in Blue Springs Missouri. The kids are in school and liking it. They had a week or two to adjust to the way they do things at this school. We have a lot of kids on are street and the kids are loving it. Our house is right by the school and the church, we could walk, but we don’t. It has been raining a lot and you never know if you are going to get caught in the rain. It rains so hard that the streets have water flowing down the sides. I don’t think my kids have seen so much rain. We have a nice yard with huge trees in the font and the back yard. The kids have taken over the shed as a club house. The other kids on the street have brought stuff over to put in it. I have two rooms in the house that I love, other rooms that are good and some that need some improvement, but all in all it is a nice house and a nice area to raise our family. Our ward is awesome and very friendly. Tom was called to be Young Men’s Secretary, and I am Valiant 9 teacher and the Activity Day Leader. There is a lot of work that needs to be done to get thing going smoothly. People have told me that they have been having new families moving in once a week, so are ward is growing. I need to still take pictures; I will have them up soon.
