Once again I've failed to blog regularly like I hoped. Oh well. The holidays have crept up on me and I'm now swamped with things to do. This time of year is bittersweet for me. The decorations, the kids excitement, the cooler weather is all very exciting but it also marks a darker time with the remembrance of mom's death. I can't believe it's been ten years. The memories of her on her last Christmas Eve celebration is so vivid in my mind. I listen to the music we played for her in her last hours...By Heart by Jim Brickman is my favorite.
I'm looking forward to being with my family for the Christmas family celebration. We've missed it for several years. The kids love going to Louisiana. They love spending time with their cousins. That is a down side to living away. I hope that their friendships continue to grow.
I am so very blessed. I have an amazing husband. Five wonderful, smart, healthy kids. Amazing family. Renee. My friends. My health. I am truly blessed.

One of my favorite movies growing up was The Goonies. It's a classic and I still enjoy watching it with the kids. This is the first year I've allowed the kids to ride their bikes to school. I get some complaining every once in a while but for the most part they all enjoy it. The reason I bring this movie up is every morning this kids take off on their bikes all in a row and it reminds me of that movie when they were going to the old restaurant to look for the treasure. I'm going to take a picture and post it. It's a little Bostick train...
