My 365...

Another restless night in my home last night.  Blake is still sick, and could not get to sleep at all.  Poor baby.  :*(

We stayed up for hours talking, trying to take his mind off how terrible he was feeling.  Finally about 4:30 AM he got his appetite back so we went down to the kitchen and I made him some yummy pancakes.  I asked him what he wanted for Christmas, and Blake gave me his usual response, "Mom, Christmas is about family.  And we just got a new house, that is what is for Christmas."

Most may think that was clever use of reverse psychology.  But with Blake, he was serious.  I had asked him a few days earlier to show me some things he likes online, so my Santa list for him is done.  He has been a very good boy this year.  So sweet and loving, definitely no chunk of coal in his Christmas stocking this year!

For Blake at age 10, Christmas is a very exciting it should be.  Being the youngest of five children, I need to work extra hard to be sure that he gets to enjoy an awesome Christmas just as his big sister and brothers did when they were his age. 

Even Casey at age 16 still loves all the traditions and fun that come with the holiday season.  Although Casey's list is really short.  All he wants for Christmas is a driver's license and a car!  Not  Last night he told me he did not want anything for Christmas this year because he found a new girlfriend!  Oh dear.  I may need something from Santa to calm my nerves.  A new girlfriend?  Already?  Lets talk about that car.  Argh!!!

They grow too fast...

Blake and his friend Dozer.  He can still manage a smile even though he is feeling poorly.  :)

"What about what I want for Christmas mama?"
"Okay Miss Lilly, what would you like for Christmas dear?"
"My own room!"
"Sure, I think I can fit your crate in the master bedroom closet."
"Not funny!"
"Oh I think it is.."  :)
