The Reason

For Thanksgiving we went to MT. It was a fun trip. I love my family so Stinking much and I love getting to see them! We always draw names in my family for Christmas presents, Sharlo had my name this year and she got us a little nativity set! I love it too much! Savana is constantly holding and/or sucking one one of the little characters. She loves it! I dread Christmas being over because I don't want to take away her sweet toys! I did not set up our Christmas tree* until about a week ago so our little nativity was our only Christmas decoration for quite a while. We had a FHE where we told Savana about all the little people and read the scripture about them, it was great! It really kept the true meaning of Christmas in our home. Thanks Sharlo!!

You may have noticed the * I added by Christmas tree...this is there for a purpose. You know in advertising people use this constantly by words! It kind of bugs me...ok a lot bugs me! Because they want you to get one picture or thought in your mind that is better than what they really have but use it because they don't want to get busted for false advertising!

Anyway, the reason I used it....I say "tree" but the little 1 foot tall (more like a bush) "tree" I have just gets pulled out of a box and plugged in. It is prelit and predecorated. It is great! I have it out every year. It will forever be my little friend. I really love my little tree* :)

However I look forward to next year when I get a real, live, pine-smelling, needle-shedding tree! That needs lights stranded on it and decorations added. Taller than one foot! :)

Butterflies and Sunshine

So about 12 years ago my dad walked into my bedroom to wake me up in the morning and had a tiny little black kitten is his arms. She was my nephew, Riker's cat's kitten ;) and she was a little barn cat on our farm in Geraldine MT. We got her all bathed and checked at the vet and she became my little black sweetheart. She slept by me at night and kept me company and was always waiting for me to get home to her. She kept my dad company in his big empty house after I graduated and moved so far away. My grandma, who never liked ANY pet, was in love with Hannah. She was always asking how she was and would even let her sit on her lap and give her snuggles! She was a sweet little kitty. I loved her sosososoo much. She started having seizures 2 days before Savana was born and she probably put me into labor with all my crying!! But she lived 9 more months, until Monday morning when she had to be put to sleep. :( I sure loved my little kitty and I know she is in heaven with lots of butterflies and sunshine!
