It was a nice suprise to wake up last day of 2009
and find id made the etsy storque
and that the treasury i made (get through)
made it to front page!

i always love putting them together
and most always i put a message inside
like tiny criptic ways
of putting thoughts in my head
out into the world
or in this case... etsy ;)

some of you know this
ive seen you comment on them
or message me in such a way
its nice
and this year i am greatful for etsy
seems silly to be thankful for an online site
but it has brought me to know people i like
and to be able to give to others
in a way
pieces of me :)
i am greatful for so much this past year
my children and family
for love
for grace and compassionate people
i am thankful for patience
and wish i had more ;)
just so much really..

this past year i was able to travel a bit
and im SO greatful for that
so many adventures

i cant wait to see what is brought my way
in this new year!!

so Christmas this year was nice..
my oldest two came in about 7 am
to inform me that our presents had arrived
and stockings filled!

i stumbled out of bed and we all came out to the living room
giggles of excitement followed
as they eyed all the goods once again

we opened stockings
baby was not so amused with unwrapping gifts
even the shiny bows didnt seem to amuse her
instead she sat on her presents and watched us

Then it was time for the gifts under the tree!
there wasnt tons
but i was very happy this year that my oldest two
were able to pick out gifts themselves for everyone in the family
i want them to see the enjoyment of giving to others
and they did!!
they were so excited to have us open the handmade bits
and things they picked out from the store!
we oohed and ahhhhed at all the goodness :)

christmas eve
we pile the kids up and go to my fathers house for the day
everyone was excited to see one another
my little bros and sisters
all waiting to play with our children

My oldest brother is a bit too old to play
so he hangs out with us!!
good times
we shoot some pool
play some xbox
joke around and snack
then my uncle and cousin show up right before dinner!

this year instead of regular dining table
my dad had bought 3 tables and set up the dining room
to look like a lovely restaurant
my sisters had set up a menu
and we sat down to these lovely tables
while they took our order
soup , salad, bread
then a main coarse of lasagna
and or mostaccioli
they also were our servers!!
yay for good service ;)

after we finished there was a bunch of
desert to choose from
of coarse we wanted to try a few ;)

after dinner we opened gifts
and got to talk a bit to my cousin and his new girlfriend
she was back from spain
and had some lovely stories to tell
it was sweet to watch them so in love
all huggy and kissy

We had lots of fun
then packed the kids up and headed for home!

its been snowing all day...
the light coming in from outside is beautiful and im craving hot chocolate.
I love days like this....
days you want to spend getting snowed in and cuddling with the one you love.

This time of year makes me want to tell everyone i love
just how much
To me its the warmest time of year
makes my insides even more mush than normal

Im excited for Christmas day to come too
i will get to enjoy the children opening up their gifts
i will make a yummy meal
consisting of turkey and mashed potatoes and whatnot
makes me hungry just thinking about it

we will have my mother over.
my sister will come with her boyfriend
we will play games
and laugh
and eat way too much

mommy broke her heart today
she said the holder walked away
and all the pieces on the floor
she doesnt want them any more

we handed her a sewing needle
we handed her some thread
we hope that she can mend it
while crying in her bed

she says her body hurts
her tummy full of pain
her eyes so full of sadness
she says she cant explain

she goes about our day
all drained of any cares
then she sits there lifeless
mumbling her prayers

she smiles with her mouth
but her eyes are full of tears
she says shes never known this love
through out all of her years

she says its all her fault
but we dont understand
she says its all her fault

apologies they must be said
i wasnt thinking clearly
and due to insecurities
ive hurt someone i hold dearly

and all the sorrys in the world
can not take back my wrong
but i will do whatever it takes
to prove my love is strong
