Sunday morning wake up call

I love you Gibson
I love you Gibson
I love you Gibson

Woke up this morning at 6:45 a.m. to my boy whining and wanting outside to do his business. He went out, brought him back in and tucked him back in his crate. Usually he goes back to sleep for at least an hour - this morning my handsome black boy wanted to stay up while I had visions of pillows, duvets and sleeping going through my head.

We ended up getting up and started getting some much needed housework done.

Later today it's off to Terrace with a friend to get a few odds and ends and then tomorrow after work I'll hit a few places here in town that I need to finish up shopping.

Bye for now,

Howdy in Blogland

Hope all is well with each of you and I'm not sure there is anyone even reading this anymore but what's important is that I have a place to just be and say whatever is going on in my crazy mind, lol.

Last night and today i've been thinking about Favourite holiday memories or traditions.

-I love, love, love the National Lampoon's Christmas movie - I never tire of watching it and laugh just as hard, if not harder at times.

-I miss with all my heart our big family Christmas in 100 Mile House surrounded by mayhem, madness, great food, laughter and always lots of love!

-The smell of a real tree, nothing beats it!

-Mom's stuffing

-The excitement of Christmas Eve as a child is still such a strong memory and it's wonderful seeing it on children's faces

-Snow, crisp, slowly drifting down from the starlit sky

-The smell of turkey cooking in the oven

-Friends stopping by to say hello, enjoying the holiday spirit and the sharing of friendship

-Turning off all the lights except for the Christmas tree lights and enjoying the sight

-Memories of our toboggan and Vernon Mann pulling us up and down the driveway of the trailer park in 100 Mile

-Christmas here when Michele, Cary and the boys drove all the way here to spend it with us!!

What are some of our favourite memories?

Wishing you and your family a most wonderful Christmas and that 2010 is filled with memories of love, laughter and happiness.
