Welcome to our newest member, K31E
My name is Ron, I am a Christmas nut always have been always will be. I am first and foremost a stay at home dad that has an evening job at a retail/grocery establishment. After my second son was born I stepped down from my management position, so my wife and I don't have to pay for daycare. My wife is a teacher in the town we live, so people recognize us everywhere in our little town.
My wife and I have been married for 9 years. We have 2 boys aged 6 and 3, both are young Christmas nuts.

I have loved Christmas as long as I remember
from seeing the lights on all the houses, to seeing if I could stay awake to see Santa.
Christmas has been the one constant in my life it has always been there for me, through the rough times of my parents divorce when I was 10 y/o or my mother's passing when I was 16.
Everyone always tried to make it something special for myself and sister when we were young no matter what was going on. I now believe that is why I love this time of year more than any other because of the efforts of my family to hold it above any other time of year. I get to make the season special for my boys now, whether it be by playing the music decorating the house and yard or just playing the dvd's. The memories the season has brought have always warm and it is no wonder why I look forward to making more of these memories every year. My favorite Christmas movie is A Christmas Story my favorite Christmas song is O Holy Night. My favorite Christmas artist is Bing Crosby.
Well if I ran on a little bit I am sorry I am new to blogging, it sounds always better in your mind.
I will try to keep posting and making it interesting for all who read.

The pain and the sadness of seeing my town in the state it is in will not subside, I have avoided going downtown the last few days just because I cannot bear to see it right now. We were barely physically affected by this storm, but the scars left by what we have seen will not go away. Our friends and family that have lost their homes seem to be doing so well all things considered but I cannot imagine what they feel when they think about what has happened. My aunt says she feels like she is in a "fog" all the time and she has cried a lot. My boys are doing well, but JP was crying tonight before bed he was scared a tornado was coming tonight. LC doing his "drawings" says it is a tornado coming to "suck you up." This is something we now have to live with, for the immediate future, the scars on the landscape will be here for a long time to remind us what has happened.

    Ron, I cannot imagine the pain all this has caused you and your family as well as your community. I am sure in some cases there may be PTSD - posttraumatic stress disorder. I hope can return to normal as quickly as possible for all of you and I pray that you and yours will be kept safe and that you will heal soon. Peace.....xo
