We bought a real tree this year. I haven't had a real tree since I was in the 3rd grade. We can't find most of the christmas ornaments and the star for the top of it but it's beautiful just the same.
I bought 2 ornaments for the lost babies and I'm looking for a 3rd one for the most recent. We knew the first one was a girl so I bought a cross with pearls on it, the second one they couldn't tell so I bought a pickle since that is what it looked like and the latest was lost before the heartbeat so I'm not sure what to do for that one. Maybe a heart? hmmm...I'm thinking about this stuff too much. When I was buying christmas stockings yesterday I found one that reminded me of the SS late mother. I doubt it even registers with him but I told Dave what it was for and he seemed touched. It just seemed like the right thing to do. I'm also wierd enough to want all of her pictures put on a wall (not a prominent one) so that when the SS is missing her he always has her nearby.
I'm meeting my sister and a friend of hers later today to go shopping and let the kids go ice skating at the Galleria. I had asked the SS if he wanted to go earlier in the week and he said he did. We'll see if he still feels the same way when I get ready to go.
My mixers all died this year. So the other day I mentioned on Facebook that I was looking for a gently used one and my sister's friend that is coming down to shop with us is going to sell me her barely used kitchen aid stand mixer for 50 dollars! yay! EARLY BIRTHDAY PRESENT TO ME!!!!!!!!!! Now I don't have to freak out over spending hundreds of dollars to get one! Plus I'm recycling!
