Some Christmas pictures from the Cottage

Image
Good Morning Blog friends,
     I found this picture and it made me think of Roger.  He would love to have a old truck!  He spends hours looking on ebay for just the right one.  He wants it for a parade truck, he would drive and Bodie would throw the candy to all of the little kids on the street.  Of course it would have Dahlenburg Construction on it for advertisement.  Actually that is not where this blog was going but I loved the picture.
    I haven't shared a lot of pictures of my home, but I thought I would show some of it to you while it is all decked out for Christmas.
     I am starting to get a collection of pictures of Bodie with Santa.  This year he actually sat on Santa's lap.  He does not connect the idea of Santa and presents, I am sure next year that will come.  The old ornament that is made from an egg is one that Roger made when he was in at least third grade because his name is written rather then printed. It is really precious to us and I hope it lasts to b…

Merry Christmas From Ladybug Cottage

This is my family tonight at the Christmas Eve program at Immanuel Lutheran.  It was wonderful to have our whole family together in church.
     It has been a busy time between Thanksgiving and Christmas.  It seems that the weeks have flown by.  We had the Christmas program at school, Cookies and Hot Chocolate with Santa which is a Cannon School tradition, and the day to day happenings in a grade school.  Sandy Hook really put what we do in perspective.  Not only do we teach our children every day but we would protect them to the end.

     Two weeks ago a sweet little red doxie was found wondering through a neighborhood in town.  A really kind man who works for our school district found him.  He put out an e-mail to the district that he was trying to find his home.  Unfortunately nobody came forward to claim him so he is staying at our house.  He is incredibility sweet and he is settling in well.  In a lot of ways he reminds me of our Mike.
That puts us up to five so we are go…

A Baby Changes Everything

Yesterday I was looking at blogs and I came across one that spun me back 34 years.  It seems this blogger has just found out that a baby is on the way and it is due on July Seventh.  I thought back 34 years when I was feeling that same wondrous change in my body.  My husband and I had wanted to add a little one to our family for awhile.  I was beginning to despair of it ever happening, but a trip to the doctor proved me wrong.  When I went I remember being afraid, afraid that I was, and afraid that I wasn't.  The doctor did the exam and then asked if I would like to hear the heartbeat.  The sound seemed to me like a small bird just flapping his wings.  The tears of joy came to my eyes and I could not believe the miracle of it all.
     I tried to figure out a fun way to tell Roger it was really going to happen.  I decided to stop at Wal-Mart and buy a little outfit to hand to him when I walked in the door.  I knew in my heart and without a doubt that this baby was a little b…
