Hey Sandi,
 
One of fellow cohorts, lol,  here at the forum posted something to you on another post and I am thinking you did not see her post. It was from Bluejet. It seems the two of you are within minutes of each other. She was wondering if you would share info on who your PM dr is, as she is in search of a new one. BlueJet has a pump too and has hit a brick wall with her PM dr. He has even went as far to tell her she should find another dr more knowledgable in pumps. Thanks for your help.

Hey Stray,
How was your holiday today? Did everything go okay? It sounded like it was busy, busy at your house and smelling of all of those home cooked goodies. I hope that it was a low pain day for you and that you had time to enjoy with that little tornado in your life.
I made a prime rib for dinner, mashed potatoes, croissants, corn on the cob, yams, steamed green beans, a salad and pie for dessert.
Last night we made sugar cookies for Santa, and decorated them. The kids had a great Christmas this morning, and couldn't wait to see what Santa left for them. My two sons got snow boards, and all of the kids got a Wii system for Christmas so they spent the day playing that. My older daughter got a new digital camera, since she lost her last one.....kids......and my younger daughter got a drum set she wanted....so they were all happy campers. Of course, there were lots of other stuff too, but those were the big things. We have them pick one big thing they truly want, and then there is all of the other stuff along with it, but they all wanted a Wii and I got a great sale on it just before Thanksgiving so they got it....
Hugs,
Sandi

Sandi, wow it sounds like you and yours had a great Christmas. We did too it was awesome. But, we had a white Christmas and thats what also made it special. We do not have the white stuff for Christmas. My son-in-law says this is his first one. We got hit with rain, sleet and snow finally. It started around 10:00 AM yesterday morning and finally ended last night around the same time. Such a treat for us.
 
I did do alot of baking this year, first time in 7 yrs, boy am I ever out of shape, lol. I made 6 loaves of pumpkin bread, 3 tubes of iced cookies, buckeye candy, a pan of gingerbread for my son that smelled wonderful while baking. I did not get the peppermint bark candy made, ran out of time and was just too tired. I was up till 2:30 this morning still finishing up the baking and wrapping. I baked one other thing but too tired to remember, lol.
 
We had the tornado yesterday for a few hours and let him open nearly all of his gifts. I did keep a coupl of things back. That way he could actually sit down and play with the toys and not be so overwhelmed with so much stuff. His big gift from us was the Wii too. He loves that game and plays it at his other grandmother's and his aunt's house. He plays on the hardest level there is, lol. When I left over there tonight at 7:00 he was kicking his Dad's butt in a golf game!! We had that at his house to open as the very last gift. Had we not done it that way he would not have paid any attention to his other gifts.
 
We had quite a lunch today, spiral ham, smoked brisket, potato salad, baked beans, yams, green bean casserole, cole slaw, green salad, fresh fruit salad, deviled eggs, stuffed celery & plenty of sweets too.
 
I was so tired that after eating I found me a chair by the fire and my lights went out. I missed telling everyone bye, slept right thru that one, lol. Everyoe knew I had been operatin on little sleep so they let me sleep, I woke up at 7:00pm. So, I gathered up my stuff and came on home.
 
I was loading my car this morning on a driveway that was total ice. I went around the passenger side so I would be in the grass & snow. But, when I tried to get in my car to leave, I was trying to walk sideways to keep from slipping & sliding. I slid sideways down my driveway. I then tried grabbing onto the car and putting a foot under the car where there was no ice, finally got my door open & and grabbed the steering wheel so I could get in. It was a site to see too!!!  The sun came out and now the roads are clear.  
 
I sure hope your day was a low pain day. Mine could have been better in that dept but I was also exhausted.

Hi Sandi...

Sorry to jump in here, but I haven't spoken w/ you in awhile and wanted to say hi!! How are you? It's sounds like you had a good Christmas day w/ your family....I'm so glad to hear that. The Christmas presents sound fun! When we lived in Colorado, snow boards were a FUN Christmas present. Yep, we have the Nintendo Wii as well... and the boys got the Wii Sport package - so, all afternoon on our main TV - I've been watching the kids battle each other in "virtual" ping pong, baseball, bowling, golf, etc etc. It's been fun! Their main gifts were new bikes, which they all really needed. So, it was also nice seeing them outside on a beautiful day here, doing what they need to be doing... Fun stuff, huh? Oh, the drum set! My 10 year old has been asking for ages for one. Just haven't gone there quite yet!

Anyway, we had a nice Christmas, too. I've been in a horrible health cycle the last couple of months....and, each day over the last week, I've felt better and better. I'm so glad it happened in time for Christmas! Made me appreciate it even more...

Ok, I'm outta here... but just wanted to say hi (and hi to you, too, Susie!!). I hope you both had a really good Christmas.... Talk to you more soon, Tina

Hi Susie...

Thanks for the kind words and thoughts. I know you've had a time of it, too... I think many of us here have had some really rough times this year. All I can say is that I am really focusing on it being a better year, that's for sure, for all of us here!!

Tina, I am with you on that one. I am ready for a break of some sort, I think all of us are. I would really like for things to slow down and stay that way. I am wondering where in the world 09 went, sure was a fast one. Here is to all of us having a much better year.

I am so happy to read that Susie and Tina both had a wonderful Christmas! It sure does manage to pick up the spirits when the kids are giggling, happy and occupied with all of the new stuff they have gotten. I think their excitement carries over to us adults.
Mine are still investigating everything. They bring one thing out, play with it, then get the next out. We went to my MIL last night, and had dinner with her and then the kids unwrapped more gifts. As if they didn't have enough already. They saw their Aunt and Uncle too, so they got a few things from them as well.
It was just a nice day. We didn't get snow here for Christmas, although we had some left over from the last snowstorm. Then ice and freezing rain for the last few days.
I guess that Wii system is going to get a lot of play if this keeps up. And we are due for more snow tonight I believe so the snowboards will get broken in tomorrow or Tuesday.....LOL Hopefully, that will be all that gets broken.....
Anyway, I am glad that you both had good holidays, didn't get any more injuries sliding around ( Susie)...You do know that you aren't supposed to do that , don't you? LOL
I'm glad that you are okay and that Tina is feeling so much better......
Happy Holidays !

Sandi those little people and kids can just make things magic at Christmas. Oh, he is just too much fun and while opening his presents he did it one at a time, then held it up and thanked whoever it was from and then posed for pics with the present. Now, thats pretty darn good for a little 4 yr old live wire like him. He was so patient. But, this year he handed out presents from under the tree. He really worked hard at that project with his Mom's help. He knows most names well enough to read so he had no trouble. He got really excited as he saw his stack getting bigger and bigger. We gave him most of his presents on Christmas Eve at our house. He had Santa early Christmas morning, then his other grandmother came with her load of goodies, then his aunt and uncle came with their load of goodies. He had gifts from his grandfather in NY and other aunts & uncles. I now wonder what we did before we had him come into our lives.
 
I asked his dad who won the golf game Christmas night, he said Cole did. But they also got another sport game for the Wii and it also had golf on it, he said they were even now, lol. He bowled 198 and his dad was floored. He is competitive for sure.
 
I saw on our weather on Teusday we have a 40% chance of sleet and snow, man this is just crazy Texas weather. But our weather tends to change from moment to moment too. lol
