Seems like Christmas is a time for reminiscing. I went to bed last night with a jumble of thoughts in my head. Some funny, some sad. I remembered Freddys' first Christmas....he was just a month old. We have pictures of him with his Great Grandma Beep. Thats what we called her, because when she would get close and hug you her hearing aid would beep. So, she always was called Grandma Beep. Such a sweet woman, I still miss her. I remember her telling me stories of when she had her kids, such details that she never forgot. I loved her like she was my Grandmother, in fact I was closer to her than I was my own grandparents. I thought of when Bubba was about 2 years old and we had a paper route. He decided to throw his shoe out the window....what a time we had finding that shoe. Because of course we didn't realize it was gone until we got home. I remembered when I could first put Abigails hair in piggy tails, she was 2 years old. Such beautiful blonde hair and bright blue eyes. Now she is 11 years old, tall and thin. I remember my little Miah, such a chubby, squishy baby. Such a sweet little guy. So many memories. Such happy times. Makes me love having a large family.
As a side note, it's 65 degrees here today and our snow is GONE.
