Blue/green homespun scarf and red regular yarn scarf finished 12/17/10
I went over to Jennifer's house I think it was last weekend and they had made a gingerbread house, Katie told me she did the candies on top. I thought it turned out pretty cute looking
Jenn and familie's gingerbread house.
I also went over to Jennifer's house this past Wednesday to babysit the kids. Chris, Jennifer's husband was having knee surgery. He seemed to be doing okay when I left and I have heard that Katie is being his nurse.
This is Jennifer's christmas tree~
I have done no more decorating and that is fine with me. I really don't have that usual Christmas spirit that I normally have. Christmas is my favorite holiday but this year with and Mattie not being here and having to have my beloved cat Oreo put to sleep I am just not the same as I usually am. It's almost like I can't allow myself to have a happy time knowing my son is so far away and he is not having fun so why should I right?? Having a child gone at Christmas is just so hard. I know that all children grow up and leave home but I just am very sad about it.
I have tried to keep myself busy with making gifts and trying to decorate but everything reminds me that Mattie is not going to be here. I even hung his stocking up on the fireplace mantel knowing he won't be here, that sounds kind of stupid doesn't it?? I keep thinking I hear Oreo down the hallway, making his very loud meows but I think it is just my mind playing tricks on me.
Have a very lovely weekend.Thank you very much for stopping by and please feel free to leave a comment.
