What a busy week-end we had. My knees are certainly paying the price this morning and I sit here icing them as I type. This works well, and I do it often...A few weeks back I got a cortizone shot in each of them and it did help "some"...I think I am going to try some sort of gel injection (or something like that) next. Hopefully that will work at little better. I am thinking springtime maybe for the surgery...In the meantime, I am grateful that there are some things to do that help some, and trying not to be too overwhelmed at my inactivity and inability to do what I would like to do. Christmas shopping should be interesting. I did quite a bit on-line last year, but I really don't like this. It is hard to see colors, sizes, (they always vary so) etc., and I had some things that didn't come and then had to be traced etc. I have at least got a start and have taken care of those youngest 6 grandkids. Pretty good I am thinking. I also got a handicap sticker just recently so I can park near the stores now. How I fought this, and now I am wondering why. It has SOOO helped.
I have been reading how there are others of you out there who are changing up your holiday traditions a bit this year as well. Janette @ Janette's Sage had some wonderful ideas and I personally would love to hear some others as well. What are some of your Thanksgiving traditions? What have you planned for this year? As it turns out my middle son John and his fiance and her oldest daughter are going to join us for dinner afterall. I am quite excited over this as having NONE of my kids for dinner was just feeling "weird"...My youngest sister and her family will join us too, so altogether we will have 12 for dinner this year. A very small crowd compared to other years, but I am just fine with this. I am looking soo forward to our first Thanksgiving in this home. How grateful I am for all He has blessed us with this year. And there has just been so much. His hand on me as I went through my breast cancer journey will be forever on my list of thanks. And our new home, my mother's recovery, and soo many other things as well. God is so good to us...
I still can't get my pic thing to work right. Kristi, I had already done what you suggested as I have had many side ways pics in the past and I simply rotate and flip and save and then they show up fine on my computer storage, but when I go to post them on here they start out fine, but then they are flipped upside down or side ways. I have NO idea why. I do have a darling one of my granddaughter Capri as a mermaid so I will try and leave this one on here at least for you to enjoy.
How adorable is this?
Believe it or not I tried my husbands suggestion and it worked well, haha. This is Lindsey as a 50's girl..soo cute.
Jeffie the Power Ranger
Cody the lion (though he wouldn't keep this costume on)
My great niece Priscilla as Little Red Riding Hood...soo darling. I had a really cute one of her and her big sister Jackie who was also Little Red Riding Hood, but I never could get that one to work..
My dil Larissa has posted her other cuties on her blog, and I TRIED to steal them so I could post them here, but another thing my husband installed on this computer has prevented me from being able to do this...sigh...I know he is trying to protect the computer, but it has been soo frustrating for me as I learn how to work things on here sooo slowly. But if you want to see, you can check HERE. There is an absolutely darling Night in Shinning Armor, and a precious Cupcake Girl. Meanwhile I am quite perky I got these at least to work. Hope you all enjoy your day. I am wanting to get lots done today, so now that my knees are good and numb I am going to get busy...God's blessings to you all....Debbie
btw Kristi, I never could get the wonderful signature that you made for me work either...such a glue I guess.
