Just Stuff

We got our wheelchair lift. I’m so thankful. Freedom 2 Go went way beyond what they had to do for us. I’m really going to have to get used to it. It takes a couple of minutes to get it all set up. I think I will like it a lot more when I’m used to it. I feel very blessed and taken care of by God in the area of Miles’ needs.

The other day we were on our way to go get breakfast and Jocie didn’t really want to eat at McDonalds. She really wanted to go to a restaurant by our house called Dixie Pig. Only she forgot the real name and she kept calling it “Picky Dicks.” Too funny.

My last day of work was last Thursday. I will still be volunteering on Mondays so I’m not too sad. Miles is going to go with me and we’re going to work up there. I know he will love it and all the kids love Miles so I think it will work out well. The principal said that Melody can still go to pre-k for free. That’s a huge blessing. She’s so good to us! The school gave me a $100 Christmas bonus! How sweet is that? Melody loves school so much! I’m glad she gets to stay. I’m really looking forward to going to Intercessory prayer of Tuesdays and hanging out with some of my friends during the week while the kids are in school. I’ve missed them.

Right now we’re redecorating the boys room. We’re making it into a Star Wars room. We’re using all their amazing stuff they got on Ebay. I’ll get some pictures up soon. We (I mean Randy) is building them some shelves to display their stuff. I’ll be painting when he’s done. That’s our Christmas present to the boys.

Miles is still looking around at everything. He smiles when he sees me! That’s such a joy to my heart. He’s been interested in toys for the first time in his life. When JoBeth, his physical therapist saw him last week she almost started crying at how great he looked! Todd, his other therapist was so impressed. We’re all very excited and thankful! We’re expecting big changes!!!

I took my sister in law to the hair store the other day. (She’s black.) While she was getting some hair I saw some pink hair. For years I’ve wanted pink highlights in my hair. I can’t help it. I just love it! Erica, my sister in law, told me that she could hook me up. I bought the hair, some thread and curved needle and some clips. She’s going to sew the hair on the clips and I can wear them in between my hair and it will look like I have some pink hair mixed in my hair. I’m so pumped. I think she will have them done by tomorrow. Yay me!

Game night was so fun. It always is. We schedule our family stuff around that party. I would like to win one time though. I did almost win one year. You may not remember but it was a show down between me, Honeycutt and maybe one other person. Brandon ended up beating me at the very end. Dang it.

Today (Christmas Eve) would have been Sharon’s birthday. Sharon is Randy’s sister that died of cancer. I still feel sad and confused about her death.

I’m excited about the kids opening up their presents this year! The girls got everything they wanted. I got a great drum set for Miles. I know we’ll have fun playing with that together. The boys got their R2D2 they’ve been saving up for. They have no idea! How exciting!!!! I love Christmas!

I guess that’s all for now! I’ve got a lot of work to do still!

I believe the game was Blurt and the "other" player was me!

I found that game on the internet and I'm buying it for next year. Also some other games I found. Do you think we should have gamenight bi-annually? I don't think I can wait a whole year!

I'm glad you made such great sacrifices to come this year! Even if you didn't win, you looked great!

Brandi...I am really honored to know you. You are an inspiration to me. You always praise Jesus in the calm or the storm and you remind me that God is sooo amazingly good all of the time.

Blessings this Christmas season!
