Christmas time is here.....

Well everytime there is a knock on the door.....there seems to be a surprise...or a blessing!!! Last night Santa (Carleton Rotary Club) showed up with a present for me....a brand new beautiful winter coat....and it fit perfect.....I haven't had a new coat in years....and never this nice...., plus they donated a envelope full of gift cards....plus a ton of groceries.....and I love that there was even things like toilet paper and paper towels.......
so tonight....I put sommer to bed....popped up the scrapbook table in the living room.....figured I would watch the Christmas Vacation.....and then "knock Knock" .....another visit from Santa....??? Mrs...Heather shows up....with the most thoughtful....idea...she dropped off a gift and said it was for lil' Mikey from Uncle Ed.....!! is that the sweetest thing...ever?? Oh..my gosh! I don't know what I did...to deserve all of you.....I have the most amazing people in my life.......and besides the gift for mikey..she got something for the girls......and me.!!! (zone gift certificate....oh yeah!) So I called mom.....and cried...!! yep that's what mom's are for...she's getting used to these phone calls....and even she said she has never seen....such an out pouring of love....in her life!! and I agree....I'm blessed...thank you!!
I did finish a page last night......simple but real...just a layout about Ed's work boots......

Hey Staci, I really love that page. You come up with so many different ideas of what to scrap...it really gives me ideas for pictures to take. Anyway, take care over the holidays and hopefully see you at the end of the week!
