Leah's Christmas would not have happened, or happened as easy, if not for many people. So here is my thank you. To Myrna, Grandma Southam, and mom for getting rid of fabric that they no longer wanted. I hardly had to buy anything. For Natalie who is knitting me slippers to go with the pj's. And especially to my mom, who years ago signed me up for sewing lessons and then gave me a sewing machine. I can't tell you how many times those lessons and machine have helped me. Oh and also to Diana who told me about free patterns online. I still have a few things I would like to make, like brown cords, but that can all be done later. I also found a free shoe pattern and am going to attempt that next week. Remember don't say anything to Leah until after Christmas;)
Also thank you to my great family. Yesterday was my turn for the stomach flu. Cora and Blake worked together to make lunches and breakfast. Cora did dished. Blake brought me apple juice and crackers. They all made sure they got to school on time. Leah made the after school snack and put all back packs and coats away. Dave and Blake did dinner and dishes. I am a total wimp when it come to throwing up. I can manage through headaches, surgery with no pain killers after, and others but the flu turns me into a wimp every time. I can't talk on the phone of barely sit up. I have no idea what I did when my kids where little. I only remember calling my mom one time. I guess we do what we have to:) Or I have a bad memory.
