CJ stopped by last night and he was telling me that on Thursday he is going to be working for the base chaplain. He is going to be sorting toys! I told CJ that I want to go do that! I think it would be fun, not to mentioned that I have not worked with the marines in a while.
Today is errand day. I have a list of things I need to get done and a list of things to buy. I only need to get Ryan a few more things and then I am done Christmas shopping.
I would love to tell you guys what I got Rusty, but I can't because he sometimes read my journal. I will say that every year I only get Rusty one thing. That one thing must be something that he would not buy for himself, and it must shock him that I would think to do it for him.
Nikki was in the Christmas program at church. I am so proud of her! Nikki did such an awesome job, and she worked so hard. The play was s et in the 1940's and when I saw Nikki all dressed up I thought of my grandmother. Nikki looked just like my grandmother.
I can remember spending hours looking at old pictures and think about how classy the women looked. Then when I saw Nikki I was just so shocked.
My grandmother died 2 day's before Nikki's first birthday. My grandmother never held Nikki, or rocked her or even saw her. But the other night I could see my grandmother standing right there in front of me.
This year I exchanged cards with a lady in the U.K. We had a race on to see who's card would get their quicker. My card got to her first. The U.K. must have a super fast postal service!
I have been talking with Rusty about getting Nikki a phone as a santa gift. Rusty has been holding out because he is not super sure that Nikki will pay the bill, and because the phones are expensive. Well yesterday I found a phone that is $49.99 and it has a $30 mail in rebate! So Rusty said that I could order it as Nikki's Santa gift. Nikki is going to be so happy! Then again Santa always brings the cool stuff!
I must sorry to everyone back east. That storm that hit you guys was the same storm that was here last weekend.
I was going to load some pictures of Nikki, but it is taking way to long! I will have to do that later. I need to get my ass in gear and get my busy day started.
