This month is always a busy month! Throw in 4 birthdays, selling our house, buying a new one and call it just crazy! Yesterday was my middle child's birthday, Tobias. I always remember hearing about the middle child in the family and he was a true wonderment. He is the best son and so highly respected. He is my greatest joy! Love him beyond measure! I remember holding him for the first time and seeing his perfect little face. He was the smallest but now the tallest at 6 ft. 2 in. Next week I will be trying not to remember it is my birthday and the day after is my youngest son's birthday. He will be 32! How does that seem possible? I remember thinking that night of my birthday in the hospital he would share my birthday but even back then had a mind of his own. After 8 hours he finally came into the world an hour and a half AFTER my birthday. He is so sweet and kind. He is the best son and so highly respected. He is my greatest joy! Love him beyond measure! Now either December 24th or December 26th is my daughter-in-law Andrea's birthday. Her mother says one day and the records state another. We just celebrate a wonderful woman! She has been a joy in our lives and we love her beyond measure! This Christmas is different. By now I usually have had the house decorated for a month, cards all sent out, cookies and fruit cake baked, all my shopping done and wrapped. Yesterday Fred and I signed the final paperwork buying our new house. After today the woman who owned it has two weeks to move. Our house sale was final Monday this week. Thanks to Bobbi for all her excellent work and advice! She is the best realtor! Works so hard at everything she does. Last night Mr. P. and I after signing the final paperwork looked at new flooring, kitchens, bathrooms, lights and doors. That is a start. I somehow remember 6 months ago that we wanted to move so we had LESS work to do so we could enjoy our lives. What happened? What would we do without work to do? That reminds me. I better get the house cleaned, work on a doll and bear I am making and pack! Happy Holidays and Happy Birthday to Jesus! He is the reason for the season!!!!
