Wishing Everyone a Merry Christmas
We all loaded up and went over to a community building where my Dad's side all gathers. Just too many for my grandparent's house anymore. There were 15 great grand children there. We had so much fun and lots of laughs. We also got a beautiful snow storm. So we took our time getting home. I don't think we were able to go above 40mph most the time. I think we ended up with 5 inches of beautiful snow. We finally got a white Christmas! So beautiful. Yesterday morning we woke up and were surrounded by gifts to open. It was a very wonderful day and we were all spoiled rotten.
Mom is doing okay. It's a week today since her stroke and I'm surprised and yet devastated. I keep reminding myself it's a week today. To just hang in there. She gets confused very easy. Which is exactly what they said would happen. She did great during our Christmas morning though. Just breaks my heart to see her so confused. She will figure it out. She will. I know she will. We are working on it. Playing memory games together. Going through pictures and asking her questions. She is answering faster. Getting it slowly back. The hardest part right now is she keeps forgetting her parents are past away. So every time she has to remind herself of that it's like losing them again. Breaks my heart. But...It's a week today.
I got so many new stitching patterns. My brain is going to explode because I want to start them all. I know I will start something new soon. I don't know what though...yet. Fred and I also got some fantastic decorations for our cabin. We all got clothes, books, some movies, some toys haha, and Jeremiah of course got some new Xbox games. So he's busy playing and smiling about all the stuff he got. I'm going to try to catch up on my email and blog reading. Hopefully I can stitch later today too.
Hope everyone reading this has a fantastic week ahead.
