I got caught up in the end of the year holidays and the beginning of the year birthdays, while everyone else seemed to realize the New Year had started. I feel like Rabbit from Winnie the Pooh, as I run around trying to get things in order.........................I am late!!! Christmas still hasn't been put away, but school didn't wait for me as it rang it's opening bell. There are calendar days to fill in, clothes to be sorted, and new ones bought (someone seems to be growing taller). All this running behind should come with the advantage of losing weight as I run to catch up. Those lost pounds are really letting me know they have returned.
Before I totally close out 2014 I have to post some of my Instagram memories. I have enjoyed Instagram, which has caught the end of 2014 and the beginning of 2015 in an instant. That INSTA thing seems to work for me these days. Here I go giving you a glimpse of the last month, while try to find out where I am headed in 2015.
My little, growing, cherry-on-top son turned 9 this week. How time flies!!!
My only brown-eyed, curly-headed son tuned 19 on Saturday. He graduates in May and then off to college next year. He is the tallest of our five sons.
I reluctantly packed up our Christmas. This year was the 50th Anniversary of Rudolph and so I had to add Rudolph ornament to our tree...three for my grandsons and two stuffed ones for my youngest sons. My china served a smaller group at Christmas lunch, but was also used for a dinner for friends. I enjoy this set that my husband bought decades ago and all the memories they have helped to make at our table.
Christmas break meant some time with my grandsons. Benjamin, Joshua and I had the joy of going to Geppetto's Marionette show in Dallas. To watch the wonder in children's eyes is so worth it.
Reindeer food I sent to Joshua and his precious mother got pictures for me...oh the joy of being a Grandmommy!
Christmas Eve service with part of the family. Yes, We Can Rejoice.
More time with grandsons. This one will be a big brother to two siblings in June!
His mother is going to be busy!!!
Benjamin's violin and choir concert.
Family Christmas celebrated early. Our son and his wife hosted a Christmas PJ party.
Grandson deciding if he wants his new shoes from Grand Mommy.
Well as I posted it all I see why I just slept into the year without realizing it....I was trying to run to keep up with this growing family.
I have to shout out Thank you Lord for you faithfulness. He is faithful even when we are not.
Next week I might get back into the groove...or just bury my head in the sand.
