Another Family Visit!

We visited our family again over the weekend. It was a pretty good visit. The kids had a blast and got to spend a lot of time with their cousins. They also ended up getting a total of $65 from various family members to do what they wanted with. A.A. spent his on games, but T decided that she wanted to put hers in a savings account and save it. That's a smart thing for an eight year old to do. She makes me so proud!

S's mom has lived in the same house for over 30 years and is always telling us about strange experiences she has had in her house. I have never had any reason to doubt them, but I have never experienced them before. That is, until Friday night while we were visiting her. We had decided to spend the night there and A.A was ready to go to bed. He laid on her couch and we shut the television off so that he could sleep. The rest of us weren't quite ready to go to bed yet, so we stayed up and talked a little while longer. While we were talking, we heard a long whistle. It was a long high pitched whistle that blended to a long low pitched whistle. Everyone was in the same room and everyone heard it including both of my kids, but no one in the room had whistled. I didn't whistle, neither one of my kids can whistle like that, and I know it wasn't S, his mom or his brother because while I heard it, I looked at each of them wondering why they decided to whistle at that particular time, yet they weren't whistling. It was odd and we never did find out where the whistling came from. My brother-in-law told S that he was glad that other people heard it because now he knows he isn't going nuts. It must not have been the first time that has happened, but S's mom never told us that she heard whistling in her house and not know where it was coming from.

Happy New Year!

I wish everyone a very Happy New Year! I hope that 2008 will be the best year yet for everyone!

My New Year's Resolution is to write at least 10 minutes a day, everyday even on busy days.

Our Christmas

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and everyone got what they wished for.
Our Christmas went well. A.A. was a little sick, but other than that it was a pretty good Christmas. The kids got everything they had asked for and claimed this Christmas was the best yet. They claim that every year, though!
Now it is time to get ready for the New Year!

More News!

My brother called me again a few days ago. Again, I thought something was wrong. I have to stop doing that! I thought something was wrong this time because he had called so late. Once again, nothing was wrong, thank goodness!

He called to tell me that my sister is pregnant, too! I am happy to be having another niece or nephew. T is absolutely thrilled. Double A says he would be thrilled if both my brother's girlfriend and my sister have boys. Then he says it would be even. Three boys and three girls and he wouldn't be the only boy.

My brother told me that his girlfriend isn't very thrilled to be sharing her pregnancy with my sister though. I guess she thinks that it is taking some of the attention off of her. That's pretty selfish in my book, though. I shared all of my pregnancies with two of my cousins and none of us minded one bit. Actually, we thought it was pretty fun, trying to guess who was having a boy and who was having a girl. Who would have their's first and who would have their's last. I'm sure she will get used to the ideal though, she really doesn't have a choice, does she?
