I have been sitting here for the last 1/2 hour complaining. It was so bad I erased it and I'm starting over. So what do I write about now? I could write about the cat scaring me this afternoon when it came down our hallway from the bedrooms. We open the window because it gets to hot in here with the stove. It likes to jump in. So apparently it did when know one was looking and was taking in the sights of the house. I could write about Gavin putting snow on my toes when I wasn't looking. Ya, the window was open again! I was sitting there reading a good book and HAAAA! something very cold hit my toes. It was Gavin putting snow on them from the window. He thought it was hilarious!! Or I could write about Matt and I hitting our heads on the fan that hangs from our doorway between the living room and dining room. Ya, thats how we get the heat to the back of the house. But it hangs down so low that we hit our heads if we are not paying attention. Lets see, what else could I write about?! (thinking) - - - - - -- Oh, ya I could write about our stove!! It is going well. A few glitches, like it getting 84 in the living room. Having the window open and the cat getting in. Having the snow blow in the window. (Good entertainment for the boys though) We can get it started pretty good now. The best thing is we haven't had to run the furnace yet! We are really hoping that, that continues. So I guess I did find something to write about!!

Christmas!!! It's Christmas!!! I love christmas!!! Now last year I did not. We didn't put up a tree, I was grumpy, and there was no snow. But this year I am so excited!! The boys can't wait either. Actually if it was up to me, we would do Santa this weekend! LOL!! But really, I think that I feel the wonder of it all this year. Levi is so into Santa, but he is also asking so many ?'s about Jesus and "how are we going to send him a gift". Kids are God's gift to us parents to keep us on our toes! How do we send gifts to Jesus? Have you ever thought of that? Really, we know the answers love people, give gifts to the needy, seek God. But do we, as adults really get that? No, I don't think we do. We think that gifts have to be big and expensive. Wrapped in pretty paper and bows. We are embarrassed if our gift isn't as nice as someone elses. We love on the people that we want to love on, because others are just to much work. We give to the needy at stores, but not like we should. Why, why do we do these things? I think it is because we don't fully know the love of God. And that being because we don't take the time. We get wrapped up in OUR lives, that we forget about others. What makes us the happiest? I think we should think about that ?. Than take that and do it for others. I love presents!! Unwrapping those pretty packages!! LOVE IT! So, I am going to think of a way to do just that, and not to my family, to someone else. Who, I don't know. It may be someone at Walmart! LOL that would shock someone! Actually that might be an awesome idea!! Hopefully they don't think it is a joke! Well those are my thoughts this Christmas season. How can I give a gift to Jesus? Thanks Levi! Keep mommy thinking! Merry Christmas everyone! May you get the love feeling, this year and carry it on into the next.

It just took me over an hour to figure out my email and password for this thing. Sometimes I really scare myself! It is all wrote down so hopefully that won't happen again. My little world has been so full of things that I don't quite know where I am or who I am. Actually I am so frazzled right now I can't think. I will type more latter.
