Good morning,


I actually slept like a log last night, feeling more rested but still blah. I did take down our three foot tree this morning, was going to do the 6 footer also but I don't have the energy, and I am not quite ready yet, maybe Sunday. Snowstorm moving in tonight, just hope our heating oil delivery gets here before the storm does we are quite low and may not make it 2 more days.

Have a great Tuesday

My indoor cat is missing and I am really upset. I have 2 cats and they sit at this one window in the house and watch the stray kitties outside. They jump at the window constantly trying to get to them and I am assuming they broke the window and he escaped through it. The glass fell outside so I am sure they broke it from inside. We have had freezing temperatures all night with wind chills in the single digits. He is not use to this since he has been indoors for several years. We have a serious stray dog and cat problem around here so he is mixed in with them all right now. I just hope he is ok. I didn't sleep well last night hoping he will return. This is the very first time he has escaped.

My son is worried sick. He had an assignment for school that is due today and had trouble concentrating on getting it done.

Please say a prayer for his safe return. =(

Edit: I didn't realize Wayne already posted about this. I just woke up. Last night we didn't know how it got broke but as of this morning it makes sense to me that my cats broke it.

Good Tuesday morning, my Christmas friends!

My younger brother is having surgery today to repair his sinuses, since he has so many sinus infections. The have to break his nose & re-set it, then drill out his sinuses and take out his tonsils. Ouch! He says he's ready to get it done so he can avoid all the infections, but, WOW, that sounds painful!

I worry about him whenever he has to have medical procedures done. He's on immunosupressive drugs to prevent rejection of the kidney I gave him a few years ago. It seems like every time he goes to the doctor, he comes back sicker than when he went. All we can do is pray this helps more than it hurts, I guess.

I lighter news, I think our town beautification group has enough money to buy some year-round pole banners. Everytime we take down the Christmas banners, Main St. looks so bare. I was thinking something like, "Welcome to Historic Bellville". Or maybe some Fall banners?

I hope you all have a great day!

I noticed on my fake tree that if I bend the top part of the tree down my angel stays on better. It doubles the strength of it.

This is the tree I am talking about, a little 3 footer: http://mymerrychristmas.com/forum/al...pictureid=5582
I still have my 7 ft in the window lit and a neighbor around the corner had theirs up Sunday night lit. Not sure if theirs is still up. Nice pictures you posted!

Have a fantastic day everyone!!
Good luck to you!

This year a major snow storm blew in the Friday we arrived and they closed the slopes because of high wind and whiteout conditions but I brought four sleds from home and the side road in front of the house was perfect for sledding so kids (all 10 of them) had a blast.

Best of all is that all the women in the family are great cooks (one is a professional caterer) so the food if amazing. While the kids are doing their thing, the grown ups are sitting around the kitchen table or TV gaining several pounds of weight from the feasts and treats.
