I was talking to my brother, Rodney, last night. We were discussing our plans for Christmas and trying to figure out when we might be able to get together. We both have moved away from our hometown. So, we are hoping we will both be back to visit around the same time.
He brought up an incident that happened a few years ago. Well, he thinks it was last year. I think it was two or three years ago. Apparently neither of us have an adequate sense of time.
Trinity was staying with him and my SIL, Becca, at Becca’s parents’ house. Rodney started a fire in the wood stove without preheating the flue, and the basement filled with smoke.
Trinity had been playing on the treadmill next to the wood stove. When Rodney and Becca started freaking out about the smoke, she said, “Oh, I thought I was just running so fast that I was creating smoke!”
My kid is awesome. There’s never a dull moment with her around!
We’re already seven days into December. That means it’s time for my first photo challenge update!
4. Tradition: We don’t really have a lot of traditions. We’re still trying to figure things out. Growing up, though, my mom bought us an ornament every year. That’s a pretty nice tradition, in my opinion. This is my first Christmas ornament. It’s not on the tree this year; I’m afraid the cats will break it.
6. Stockings: Not pictured is the furbabies’ stockings. Also, please notice that mine is the only one that is empty. I shop for everyone else, but no one shops for me. Or, ya know, my husband is a last minute shopper.
I should also give a shout out to my mom, who knitted Trinity’s and Daniel’s. Mine was made by my aunt’s mother-in-law.
The Little GSP is also participating in this challenge. Go check out her photos!
I’m just participating in all the photo challenges up in hurrrr! I’ll also post the Instagram challenge.
Jennay is also participating in this one. Go take a peek at her pictures!
I think you guys should all jump in and participate for days 7-14… or 7-the end. Whichever. I’m just trying to say you should make a post on the 14th with me.
