Christmas Eve

Here are some pictures from Christmas Eve at St. Peter's.

 Silent Night.  Holy Night.  All is calm.  All is bright.

Odds and Ends

 Doodle and her Fixit.

Marls had a biography project at school.  She had to write a paper too, but this was what she made at home.  It was lots of fun to do.

 My test subjects for my Santa shoots a couple weeks ago.


Every year, Granny passes on more and more of her culinary secrets to the kids. 

 Marls and Norman love to cook, Doodle prefers to taste test.

 This Thanksgiving, she discovered she loves Cool Whip.

Life update

Y'all.  It has been a crazy couple of weeks.  We found out two weeks ago that Fixit has cancer.  It was a roller coaster for a week trying to figure out what  was going on, what the right choice for Fixit was.  With more information, came more questions.  And trying to explain all of this to the kids.  It was awful and gut wrenching.  It made it all the harder because Fixit never seemed sick.  And he's so young.  Finally, we made the decision to take his leg.  Well, more accurately his shoulder.  The doctor was able to get all of the cancer and we are almost a week post op.  Fixit is healing like a champ.  He's also high as a kite.  But I'm only giving him what the doctor ordered.  We all celebrated last night because he finally pooped.  I never would have guessed how big a role poop plays in my life as a momma.  The girl are in the next play at Unity, both are in the angel choir.  It should be very cute.
