I am so thankful that I finally have my energy back after surgery. It took a lot longer than I ever anticipated. I, like many people do not like to depend on others, it's hard asking for other to do everything. The simple things in life like opening the dryer door and the freezer were huge tasks which took great amounts of effort (I finally was able to do both two days ago). I still can't put the dishes away onto the high shelf but that will come. I'm so glad that I can do what I can do without having to take long breaks now. The only thing I am not supposed to do is pick up anything more than 10 pounds for one month. William has been so understanding that I can't pick him up.for.anything. Not even to see up high or a jump out of the bed or car.
as Sweet Sugar Brown says.....aint nobody got time for that!
John kindly lugged the Christmas boxes out of the attic a few days ago, I was so exhausted telling he and the girls where to move boxes and furniture I literally had to wait till the next day to take things out...that's sad.
The day before Thanksgiving, Christmas was all over the house... the tree decorated, music holiday playing and watching more Christmas movies than any one human should watch in any given period.
I love taking out the ornaments and carefully going through each one.
Precious memories with so many memories.
Memories of times and places when our kids were younger, a place that will always be special in my heart.
William surprisingly really got into the decorating.
I have several nativity scenes, however over the years I have started putting out the one my mom bought when I was in kindergarten...
While unpacking our decorations, William found this little nativity. Unfortunately I don't know where it even came from but he let out a huge, "Mom! WOW!" and I knew it was out to stay.
The detail on each figure is beautiful.
The décor is simple this year with greenery, red berries and accents of silver balls and ornaments.
Yesterday afternoon Jingles appeared on our dining room table before we left for Pops and MiMi's house for Thanksgiving. Brooke could not have been happier to have him back.
