My sisters make one of my niece's and nephew every year and give to mom as part of her christmas. It's kind of like a yearbook of everything that happened that year.

Had some discouraging personal news today. Time to sleep on it and see how it looks in the morning.

I hope everyone is out from under the threat of violent weather now.

Good night, Christmas friends.
I hope all is well with you, you are in my thoughts.

Things are still emotional, but the sun is out today and the weather is nice, and I believe something that simple is helping everyone around town. As a teacher, my wife is still having a hard time with what happened at the schools that were hit, and at her own school. Tomorrow will be emotional as they allow the kids back in the schools (those that weren't directly hit) to say goodbye to their friends and collect personal belongings and see their teachers.

Well, y'all have a good day!

If there's anything I've missed in the posts I am sorry and hope everything is going good for you all!
My wife is a teacher also, she has had a hard time dealing with seeing the schools being hit. She really feels for the kids and teachers, as we all do, but it really strikes home to her.

Your community is still in my thoughts.

Good morning, friends!!

Happy Pines Day!!!!!!! 🎄

Looking forward to seeing you all tonight!!

Ryan & MerryCarey, you & yours are in my thoughts & prayers.

I had a lovely time at lunch yesterday with my girlfriend. It was fun to catch up!! And the food at this little pub is amazing! Who would know to look at it, that it's in the middle of a furniture Homestore?! Quite a brilliant idea, if you ask me. I'm sure many husbands go hang out there while their wives & families shop.

The road trip was so nice, about an hour each way, through the countryside. Love looking at all of the farms & small towns. It was cloudy & 70 degrees, perfect driving weather. I turned up some Bruce Springsteen & enjoyed.

Adrian & I worked on pulling our credit reports. This weekend, we will go over them with a fine tooth comb, and challenge discrepancies. You really have to look out for yourself! I already see someone else's name on mine :/ That can't be good.

It's going to be another cloudy & stormy day here. I don't think anything severe, though. I always check my Weather Channel app in the morning.

Lots to do today. And it's my best friends birthday, so calling her is first on my list!!

Praying you all have a safe & blessed day!!

XO

They have a room full of nutcrackers at Yankee Candle, all sizes, 6 feet tall, 8 inches tall and everything in between. He LOVES that room, I can't wait to go back there again.

Good Morning MMC!!!!!!! It's going to be a warm day here but not as bad as the last couple of days. It looks like we will top out around 75. Then tomorrow we are back down into the 60's!!!!! I'm going to play mechanic today and do some work on mom's car. I let her take my truck to work so tomorrow I'll probably have to put brakes on it. I often wonder how she doesn't give her self whiplash with the way she slams on her brakes at the very last second. I also need to scrub the bathroom but I really don't want to. Maybe I'll put it off to tomorrow when it's even cooler. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!



Snowflake- There are 2 muffins sitting here with your name on them!!! You better hurry though, I don't know how much longer my will power will last!!!
