Ice storm ~ Christmas tree


Ice covered trees after the ice storm.
WOW! It has been a week since my last post. Since my last post Kevin came home on Friday. So when he is home we like to spend as much time with him as possible. Saturday we did some shopping and bought our Christmas tree. Aundrea was so excited. She had been asking since we have been back from Thanksgiving and we were going to get one. Aundrea loved decorating it and Cassie loved pulling everything off. I spent the rest of the weekend with Kevin and the girls, getting packages ready to mail, and more shopping. When will the shopping end? I’m hoping to be done this weekend. I also have been staying up late working on my Christmas cards. Please don’t think I’m complaining about making them. I love to make my Christmas cards. It’s just this year I have put more detail in them. I was going to post last night but by the time I was done I was ready to hit the sheets. Kevin left this morning for Ohio. He returns Friday morning. I miss him and so do the girls. Cassie walks around calling for him. Good thing he is only gone for a couple nights and not weeks at a time. I have to look at the bright side of things to get me through the nights without him.

Oh, Christmas Tree! Oh, Christmas Tree!


Ok, I'm at the "tale end" of my post. My thoughts have shut down. I can't think anymore. Must get Aundrea off to bed. Stay tuned. Thanks for looking.
