Some of my Christmas Toys

(Originally published by Nattie on December 27, 2003)
I got spoiled this Christmas. So did the kids. They got so spoiled that I don’t think I could even list what all they got.
Anna’s favorite toy so far is a cheap little toy cell phone with faux fur case that I got at the dollar store for her stocking. She carries it everywhere and even sleeps with it.
Jonathan is enjoying robots, dragons, dinosaurs and legos. Wes is gazing fondly at his Tony Stewart car and playing the “Lord of the Rings” Xbox game.

Here are some of my toys that I’m enjoying; I picked up these two books with my Christmas money. They are both on my 2004 list to read and my library doesn’t have them:
~ Gift From The Sea
~ Bird by Bird.
I picked out the gift that my dad got me. It is one of the perks of helping him shop for the kids!
~ “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone”
~ “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets”
Wes did really well, too. We aren’t supposed to buy for each other, but we always end up buying a few small things. This year he did real good. :o)
~ Kelly Clarkson–“Thankful”
~ “28 Days”
~ Christy–“A Change of Seasons”
~ Christy–“A New Beginning”
That is just the icing on the cake. I got oodles of gift cards to my favorite store, Kohls. So I went shopping yesterday and got a pretty merlot-colored velour “jogging” suit, two pairs of Gloria Vanderbilt sport pants, a black long-sleeve shirt and a lavendar fleece sweatshirt.
All in all it was a good Christmas. We didn’t go anywhere with Anna being sick, but she seems to be all better now. We still have to take her to the doctor next month to follow up on the heart murmur, but I’m trying to leave that in God’s hands.
Jonathan ran a low-grade fever for a few days and had a stuffy nose, but that seems to be better too. I did get to visit with my dad and Grandmother on Christmas Eve.
Christmas Day, Wes made a turkey. This is the second year that we’ve made our own turkey and we only do it because Wes is in love with turkey salad. Last Thanksgiving his stepmom gave me the “secret” recipe so I could make it for him. So we had turkey salad yesterday.
Also on Christmas Day my mother-in-law and her husband (I guess he would be my step fil?) brought the children’s gifts over. The kids love their grandparents and enjoyed playing with them.
Our Christmas was quiet and I did wish that I could buy Wes more. With me staying at home, I don’t have easy access to money to buy gifts with. Now, if I want to buy him something, he’ll see the check in the checkbook or the withdrawal and wonder what I needed it for. When I was working I could be a little more discreet. And we don’t have a lot of extra money right now.
Oh, well, lots of gifts aren’t necessary for the perfect Christmas. What is necessary is family, friends, lots of love and fully appreciating the greatest gift of all–Jesus.
Enough rambling for now.

    Just wanted you to know you’re on my heart today, Nattie. Very strongly. Thank you to your daddy for keeping you alive here on your blog. The tribute video was amazing, the letter from our friend Cheryl so moving. And the poem to your daughter just brought me to tears.
    I wish we had not lost contact before you got sick. I’ll never forget how you were there for me, and I wish I could’ve been there for you as you went through this.
    I believe that you are smiling down on all of your friends from Heaven now and looking out for all of us just like you did when you were here on earth.
    I love you and I miss you.
