Here it is new years day and in my house I am the only one up.
Last night we went down to the VFW and we had a nice time. I saw some friends that I had not seen in a while and that will always put a smile on my face.
For Christmas I told Rusty that I wanted a true old fashion ladies hat pin, and I even told him what antique store to go find them in. Rusty picked out the prettiest pin, so last night I had to wear a hat. An older lady that I have never seen before made a comment to me that you don't see very many women wearing hats any more. I wonder why that is? I love hats and my hat pin!
Last year was a very busy year for us. Lets see...
we moved twice
Amber lost her money while in Rome
Nikki went back to Nicaragua
Amber graduated high school
Nikki had a sweet sixteen
I had the biggest medical scare of my life
I organized a blanket drive for the veterans home
I started quilting for the wounded warrior's
I fostered three litters of kitten
I met a ton of new marines
We watched the marines leave for Iraq and we welcomed them home
Amber started dating an army guy
Today I am going to put on a pot of ham and beans. I hate ham and bean's but just about everyone else loves it. It is also a good way for me to use up that ham bone. I am also going to work on a quilt. That is about all I planned for today.
