Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Just like always, Christmas is over in the blink of an eye. For the past 55 years Santa has visited my Grandma Sanchez’s house on Christmas Eve. Back then, our Santa carried a reindeer whip --- my dad used to joke around and say it was a whip for the naughty kids. Our current Santa does not carry a whip, but he does know information about the kids…information that only Santa would know!! For example, Grace has this horrible habit of climbing on the cabinets. Every time I turn around her little butt is standing on the counter. Well, a couple of days before Christmas it happened…she fell off! Unfortunately, she caught the oven door on the way down, landed on the oven door and broke the hinge. Great…and this is the house that we are trying to sell. You should have seen the look on her face when Santa questioned her about the oven door…PRICELESS!!!
This was Lucie’s first Christmas and she had a blast with the wrapping paper & boxes. She is such a huge Mama’s girl. I am not kidding, if she even hears my voice in the other room she starts bawling until she is in my arms. Then it’s all smiles from there!!! She is such a sweet little girl…smart too! Her God-mother Joley and I have decided that she would make a wonderful plastic surgeon. We figure that 30 years from now we will need all of the help we can get.
The new house is progressing. The stucco is finished, and the walls are in the mud & taping process. Bryan ordered the bamboo flooring last week, and we are getting ready to finalize the cabinet order. This is the exciting time for me…when I can actually see everything coming together.
Here's to a healthy, safe and happy 2008!!
