Dear Samanthaclause.....LOL

Wow I gotta tell you this yr and last yr this time are about COMPLETE 360'S....This time last yr I was lost a bit still, starting to get it that whole WS thing but not really ya know. If I could tell you how much I have grown/changed it would just be crazy...
I love that when I get a chance to blog there are a ton more to read it is so different every time....I can only hope that blogging is/has helped everyone as much as me, it's feeling a part of something....Kinda like "Cheers" here in blogland...

I do not think it matters where you find it or how but support of any kind certainly does make a huge difference. I could not even tell you where I would be today without cyberspace...Thanks all you guys rock!!!

Tatum is on the verge of really walking maybe she is saving it for Christmas. In the mean time I am enjoying my last few weeks of calm before I have two nuts running around my house, hmm and I thought just Emma was a handful. I think I am going to have my work cut out for me, actually I know!!!

Anyway work is crazy our new favorite word is declining market...don't worry we all live in one and if not now shortly :)

Saturday I was invited to a WS brunch in VA. It starts at 10am so I can only count on Tatum going with me. Although I do think I have talked Autumn into going, I'll know one person...We are planning on getting a Christmas Tree and maybe even a breakfast with Santa so the weekend may be busy, like they all aren't busy...

On Wed. morning Emma woke up to snow falling, she asked if Santa was coming...I had to explain yes but not today...aren't kids cute!!! She is to funny I wish I could actually show you all but not even a video would do her justice...raising kids has to be the most rewarding thing ever...Have a terrific weekend everyone. XOXO oh yeah and her new favorite cartoon is "Peanuts" you gotta love it...To bad I never knew how funny it really was until this yr. Isn't being a parent great :)

OOhh have a great time at the get together! Go on Autumn (if you are reading this) it will be great!!
Emma is so cute LOL, Liam goes to me this morning "Isnt it Christmas yet? its taking FOREVERRRR mum, tell santa to hurry up!"
LOL - i need to work on the true meaning of christmas a little more i think!

If this is Cheers, are you Norm?
This past year has brought many changes in myself as well. I mean it hasn't been a yr. yet, but close. This has been a terrific outlet for me too Lisa. It seems that noone else really gets it the way we do. I love that I have you guys. Even the people closest to me aren't there for me like you all.
Kids are great Lisa.... This time of year is so fun for us and them.
If only there really was a santa and the shopping wasn't up to us!

I am playing catch-up on my blogs today. Tatum has grown so much (and so has her hair!!). Enjoy your holiday season! We are having so much fun with both Jamie and Clare getting excited this year.

Please keep us updated on Blake - my heart goes out to that family.

Same here Lisa - I have no idea what I would do without the blog crew's support. It's so nice to share things and know other's know exactly what I'm going through.
And you said it best - Kids are just great!!!! I have no idea what I did before I had them...it's awesome!!!

Hope you have fun at your outing. I have to say I was totally living in denial before I started blogging. I also felt more alone. I have thought what would I do if my computer crapped and I couldn't talk to you guys. I shudder to think.

Ava Jewel Leilana said...

I feel the same way, I think I would have lost it if I didn't find you all, and it's funny how I found this amazing group of women right when I needed support the most, you all have been my rock and have truly made me feel I am not alone.

I hope you have a great time at your brunch & picking out your tree! And yes it is the best thing that has ever happened to me, you know the being the parent thing ;)

Happy Holidays!

Oh, have a great time at your gathering. I envy you. We never really have many here in Florida and I wish we did. I agree that this has been great therapy for me as well.

Take pictures!

You look NOTHING like Norm. Heather, behave! You look more like Carla! *kidding* Hehehe.

You are going to have a blast at your outing. I wish I could go with you:(

Your family is beautiful as ever. I'm so glad I got to "meet" them, and that we all have each other for support, online or otherwise. How did we survive without the internet????

By the way, the blogger word verification thing is picking on me. It always takes a few tries before I can get the comment to post. Maybe I need new glasses?

We have all come a long way, I think!

CHEERS, friend o' mine.
