Lots a going on

Genvieve turned 1 on the 6th and is doing great! I was mean and scheduled her Dr's appointment for the day of her birthday, but it didn't seem to bother her much. She weighed 20lbs 15oz and is 31in tall. That's almost the exact same that Dianna was at 1, except she was 1/2oz heavier! She's still breastfeeding like a champ and started walking on the 11th! It's only a few steps here and there right now, but she's doing good.

Christmas is going to be busy as usual. We are going to be spending most of the day with Mike's family, and then the afternoon is time with my dad. We are supposed to have Hailyn, but we don't know how Mike's ex is going to handle it. His ex got married about 3 hours before I picked Hailyn up for the last visitation. I just hope that the holidays aren't filled with drama because of it all.

A new Post

Sorry it has been so long since I posted. Life has been busy, and I don't always have the time to add a little on here. Here is an e-mail that I got today that I wanted to share.

Twas the month before Christmas*
*When all through our land,*
*Not a Christian was praying*
*Nor taking a stand.*
*See the PC Police had taken away,*
*The reason for Christmas - no one could say.*
*The children were told by their schools not to sing,*
*About Shepherds and Wise Men and Angels and things.*
*It might hurt people's feelings, the teachers would say*
* December 25th is just a ' Holiday '.*
*Yet the shoppers were ready with
cash, checks and credit*
*Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it!*
*CDs from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-pod*
*Something was changing, something quite odd! *
*Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa*
*In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda.*
*As Targets were hanging their trees upside down*
* At Lowe's the word Christmas - was no where to be found.*
*At K-Mart and Staples and Penny's and Sears*
*You won't hear the word Christmas;
it won't touch your ears.*
*Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-si-ty*
*Are words that were used to intimidate me.*
*Now Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton,
Wolf Blitzen*
*On Boxer, on Rather, on Kerry, on Clinton !*
*At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter*
*To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter.*
*And we spoke not a word,
as they took away our faith*
* Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace*
*The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged
and discarded*
*The reason for the season,
stopped before it started.*
*So as you celebrate 'Winter Break'
under your 'Dream Tree'*
*Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me.*
*Choose your words carefully, choose what you say*
*Shout MERRY CHRISTMAS ,
not Happy Holiday !*
Please, all Christians join together and
wish everyone you meet during the holidays a
MERRY CHRISTMAS
Christ is The Reason for the Christ-mas Season!
