Lots to catch up on…..

Wow, felt like Ive been gone for so long… Spending lots of quality time with my Family. We have new sad news  this one is about my Brother in Law…. yes Life…. isnt it so great. We are pulling for him in these next couple of months….. chemotherapy. I said it, I just cant say the other "C" word.  Prayers for him. Ok, get that off my chest off the bat. If God isnt telling us to slow down, I dont know what the next one will be. This blog isnt about being sad or down or frustrated…. not here. It is life though and that is what explains allot about where Ive been. So I know for sure he is going to get through this like a champ. That being said…. 

I had my brother here for a week… havent seen him for a year and a half. Miss him terrible. He is so much fun. Darianne had a playmate for a week… including the getting on each others nerves part. Here are a couple of pictures of those two: Two crazy fools…… Edgar and d1Ed and d2
Love them together. Now I know what its like to have two kids and why I am not having another one! Big news in D's life… her first tooth came out. Poor Mexican/American kid is confused of who takes her tooth under her pillow. In Mexico there is the Rat named Perez and here its the tooth fairy… we have always told her the tooth fairy….. My Mom and her husband both asked her when  Perez the rat was coming. Well, that was a nice…. thanks Mom…. I had lots of " splaining" to do….. I made her a little drawstring bag with a little tooth fairy image and a note from Both…..  Great, hope they don't ruin Christmas anytime soon…Tooth fairy
Lets see what else? Decided to get out my crafts and just play today….. tired of eating. Christmas crafting….. making Christmas corsages and Christmas wreathes still not finished with them, but wanted to share what I have done. I am excited for next Saturday I am going to be a vendor at Kim's A Joyeux Affair. Love her soiree's! Here are some of today's crafting:  Tomorrow going to serve food at a Soup kitchen in LA's skid Row. I am so luck and need to  put my time in to the needy. We are so lucky to have what we have, the least I can do is help with the homeless. Will post more about it on my next post…. taking my good friend Alice with me…. I knew I could talk her into it, she has a heart of gold and not afraid to get down and dirty….. so thankful for her. That is pretty much it for now. Hope everyone enjoyed their families and had a wonderful Thanksgiving…. so grateful for so many things dont know where to start….. but lets just say I am thankful for being here….. on this beautiful planet. Christmas craft 4Christmas craft 5

    Your brother-in-law is on my prayer list. May God shower him with healing energy, strength, and courage. My husband just started chemo this week too. –Susan
    P.S. Your brother is very handsome.

  9. LittleLovables Says:

    Awe, hope your brother in law and his family have comfort and strength, prayers for them!
    Also, love those wreaths, and why don’t you tell your little girl that Perez is the tooth fairy’s pet/assistant… kind of like a Santa and Rudolph team. My tooth fairy’s name was Misty. She always wrote tiny little notes how my teeth were so white and pretty and they will look beautiful in her happy tooth garden.
