Sammi loved her pots and pans from Christmas. Almost every day since she has washed them and made "soup". It was 55 here yesterday it doesn't feel like winter at all. I found my gift certificate that I was thought lost. We are still waiting on the MP3 player. I put all of my Christmas decorations away Thursday, reaaranged things in my kitchen and rearranged my house (year round) decorations. I was able to add a new black bear and a moose and bear kleenex holder to my pretties.

Bethany asked me to put a picture of her newest 'daughter' on the blog. Santa delivered this new baby Christmas morning.
Sammi also got twin babies. As you can tell from the picture she could have cared less. Sammi really didn't care for Christmas package opening time. It seem to over whelm her and make her very upset
I got a MP3 player that I have been asking for (for a very long time) and much to my and Earl's dismay it turned on once and refused to work anymore. Even after trying 14 new batteries it refused to work. Then to console myself I went to find my $25 gift certficate that my Dad got me only to find that when we were cleaning up the Christmas wrapppings at Dad's house, someone accidently put it in the bags to be burned. Which Earl had done right away to be helpful. Thankfully I called the store where Dad got the certificate and the lady said that it was OK I could still come over and pick something out, but if I found the certificate to get rid of it. And Earl is hot on the trail of the company that he bought the player from.
Christmas was good, but Mom was sorely missed. I realized that the reason why Christmas was always so good for me was Mom made sure of it. Dad did a great job without her help, but Mom will always be hard to out do. So if your Mom is still with you tell her today how much you love her and appreciate her, you never know when she might go home to heaven.

I was going through my picture archives and found this picture from when we took the girls to a bull riding event at our county fair this summer. I love the outline of the girls with their pigtails.

This is the newest member of our doggie family. Her name is Princess. She is half beagle and half Jack Russel terrier. We got the dumbest halves of both breeds. We got her after we went to NY for church camp after one of our puppies met her demise.

This is Sr. Lorina Glick. She lead the meetings. Did you know that the first WOW was not in the United States, but in Paupa New Guinea. Sr. Glick started it there as a missionary, when she came home she started the group here. Hopefully if the funds can be raised some of the ladies from Paupa New Guinea will come for the retreat next year.

This is the playhouse that my brother and I built for the girls, it has been painted red (Beth's choice) and furniture has been added I will take a picture of it and post it later.
We decided to let the girls paint some of there playhouse except Sammi was much more interested in painting herself. Had a lot of fun giving the girls a bath that night. HAHA

HAPPY 2nd BIRTHDAY SAMMI
We had a party for Sammi today at our little park across from the church. Mainly so that the girls and the 2 little kids that were invited could burn off the sugar from the cake. Sammi got barnyard basic blocks, a Dora van roller skates, new game, 3 outfits, a Dora tricycle and tomorrow we are building the playhouse for the girls. My preacher and his wife also came to the party and we invited 3 little boys and another girl that were playing at the park to have some cake. Sammi was very tired by 4:00 and took a nap before church tonight. All in all a good day

We had mac 'n' cheese and tuna cakes for supper. Sammi is still learning that the food goes in her mouth not all over her face.

This is the beautiful planter that was sent by my New York family. Mom had so many beautiful flowers and plants given to her family. We also had beautiful candels and lanterns and a throw that has helped in our time of loss to know that Mom was so well liked and will be missed.The school that Mom worked at will be placing a wonderful plaque in the school to remember Mom by. The poem on the plaque is
