i can't sleep.
i've been up for a bit trying to sleep.
but it's christmas!
i'm gonna have to wake the guys soon!!!
i really kinda had my christmas yesterday.
that's my full day with the guys.
we went sledding....
and i swear, i felt like their little sister.
i was out there tumbling down that hill
and huffin and puffin' my way up....
and felt like i was ten years old.
i had bought a 'magic carpet.'
a piece of plastic to sit on and slide down on.
it didn't turn out to be too magic.
but i kept trying....
it was so fun.
and last nite, they gave me their presents
they totally out did themselves.
every present they gave me made me feel totally
seen, understood and loved by them.
after opening the last present from them,
i just started crying.
they actually gave me a kid's tea set.
(a really cool one)
to honor little terri.
they gave me a book on mid life that looks
awesome. it looks right up my alley.
a book on business stuff i'm interested in, i can't
wait to dive into.
fantastically funky socks that i totally love.
lots of them that will go with my rocket dog shoes!
and! a learning electronics kit! told them i always
wanted one!!! they remembered, got me one.
they all said they'd teach me.
and! they bought an old dresser at the thrift store
and together they painted it up for me.
funky, but classy.
they painted inside the drawers and they all
worked on different parts of it.
they pointed out who did what.
used paint that we used on josh's house....
so it all ties to his house.
and then put presents in every drawer.
i really really needed a dresser.
and i really really wanted a funky one.
and i really really love how they painted it.
when they saw my total delight, they beamed.
i watched them.
they beamed with happiness.
i tell ya, my living room was pretty darn
bright with light last nite!
i'm gonna go wake them...
it's time for some santa fun!
time for their presents.....
wait til josh finds his imiation coon skin hat!
i love christmas.....
merry christmas to everyone!
