Day 64- Merry Christmas !!!!

Today was a wonderful Christmas of 2008! It was quite the day, we had a lot of fun and had a lot of food. We did not have as many people as we were expecting, but it was more than enough for me. Pat came down from red deer to join us and cayce has already been here for almost a week.

I got a lot of great gifts, and i am truly grateful for them all. It was lots of fun like always to watch how excited cayce got with each gift that he opened. One gift he received from bryan and carly was a roller coasted set. You build your own roller coaster out of knex pieces, and once it is done it runs. We’ll i thought this was quite cool and cayce was very egar to put it together. I thought it would be fun to do so i started working on it. Well… i started at 2:00pm and at 10:39pm it was done…. wow. It is about 6 feet in length and feet in height, it was quite the task.

Definitely one of those things had i known how long it would have taken me i probably never would have started. But really in the end isn’t that like many things in life. I worked through frustration, head ache, being flat our mentally drained, and at the end we even had a problem that took probably another 30 mins to fix.

Well i fought through it all and i was really proud of myslef when we had that think running in the front room! It was quite a high point in the day… funny enough it felt like such a big accomplishment.  Plus it was worth every smile cayce had when he watched it go around and around.

So today i am thankful for persistence, and the ability to push throw and finsih something even when i thought i was to tired to do so.  I am thankful for the chance to challenge myself in creating something new.

I am thankful for the time spent with cayce, pat, mom, tammy, jimmie, brad,isabelle, timmy, and sarah. It was a great christmas !!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, and i can’t help but think of all the adventures the new year with bring us all.
