2010 Christmas

 I understand it is after the holidays.  I wanted to write this to let my friends know why my christmas was so special this year.  Christmas has always been a time of family for me and basically everyone I know.  I always went to my parents or relatives house.  This year my kids came to me.  I had the joy of watching them christmas morning and really enjoyed the time with my grandson.  We also had other friends here to enjoy our christmas as well.  The recent funeral that I went to was a reminder that what we have:this time alloted to us, is really special.  I'm sitting here today remembering that it was that couples last christmas together. That is something I know she will cherish the rest of her days.

I started out my day with coffee of course, none of the kids were up, I was more excited than any of them.  I was trying to tickle rose on her foot, put feather in christopher's ears.  I was disappointed because they wouldn't get up.  I tried waking up their father... no go.. then Brandi.. nope.. I called Lauren around 7 and she wasnt up yet.  I think the kids started rolling downstairs around 7, by that time I was so excited I couldn't sit still.. what is wrong with me?  Too much coffee I think.

The night before my little town of Lakehurst had a "Eat dinner with Santa" night.  It was really cute.  I brought chris and rose. chris of course was a helper and he knows all the firemen and the police officers.  They love him!! It is such a great little town, I love it here.  My friend from church pulled me to the side and said she had some gifts for the kids.  I accepted them and let me tell you, we had a rough year.  She sent her friend to my house the next day with more gifts.  I was in no way giving all that to my kids, but god enabled me, through this gift giving to supply six children with gifts that parents had no way to provide.  It was this gift giving that made my christmas really enjoyable and able to spend the time with my family knowing that because of the generosity of certain people I was able to share. 

I have a very good friend, like a brother to me, I will just say his first name, Mark, has been more than a friend to this family.  He has been there in times of need and has never asked for anything in return. He went and got my children presents and then when I couldnt afford the layaway at Burlington coat factory, picked that up too.  He has been an inspiration to this family and to everyone that has the luck to cross his path.  So you see, this christmas was more about giving than recieving.  Mark was like a little kid. He loves to see the faces of the kids. 

My husband had a chance to spend time with his kids and his grandson.  He looked like a little kid himself.  I got to do what I like to do best.. cook a great big dinner.  it was noisy but i liked it. I have to admit, I liked my quiet time afterwards but all in all, it was a great christmas.

I want to thank every person that was part of it. My mother in law, my brothers, my friends who mean the world to me even though i never have time of day.  I have so much love in my heart for them, ahd can never repay them.  Thank you for a wonderful christmas everyone.
