Fall 2009 List
2. Binding on Christmas Quilt
4. Molly G Quilt
5. 1 Scrapbook project (see-trying to be more realistic)
So, for this winter, I think it's a good idea to try to keep the list simple.
1. Graduation Gift
2. Read 3 books that Dad would approve of.
3. Build a room in the basement with Matthew.
4. Molly G Quilt
5. 1 Scrapbook Project (this is getting desperate)
And that's all I come up with for now!

I find myself saying out loud, while wrapping gifts, "There's no reason to hoard ribbon. Just use it."
Anyone else have this problem?

Finally, the poor pilgrims are allowed in, and a big party follows, with pinatas and tamales and fun. On the 24th, everyone would then head to church at midnight for the Misa del gallo (Mass of the rooster)(Midnight Mass).

I did a couple of extra things this year. I twisted white garland around the lights to cover up the green cord, and I strung another white garland through the middle of the tree. I'm really happy with how that came out. I used some pink ribbons I had, and I'm always on the lookout for new perfect pink ornaments, but I didn't find any this year.
I love my pink tree.

Remember when Anna gave us all names from Pooh and we were only to refer to each other that way? We all have ornaments from that time. Here's me, Tigger, in 2007.

Katrina has given us many of the coolest ornaments on our tree, like this drum, which I took 5 pictures of, all blurry. Also a high hat on a stand that really works! Katrina's the best. :)
This football is from a "grown up" friend for our graduation from K-State. Donna and I share a great love for KSU football. This ornament reminds me of our young marrieds small group, and what a neat time that was.

Like this guy, who makes me laugh every year. Where did he come from? When and where was he appropriate?
Or this, my very first Flamingo ornament. Now I have lots, given to me over the years, but this first flamingo, he's special. I remember finding him and thinking. A flamingo for the Christmas Tree, found at Goodwill? What could be more perfect?I got a whole box of these Straw ornaments from Czechoslovakia, and gave most of them away, but I kept one for myself.

Last weekend we went to Plainview TX to watch nephews Luke and Levi play in the Texas State Playoffs against Garden City, TX. It was a cold game, but fun to see. Luke plays like all of my favorite football players, with an intensity that you can feel from the stands. I'd be proud to wear number 25.
Follett didn't win, so that was Luke's last High School game. I know that feeling, of working so hard in your senior year, devoting yourself entirely to a goal, and not making it there. I know how that hurts.
