December 2011

2011 I had the Christmas tree up before December first, unusual for me.
I was grateful for a month of warmth days.
We only had one day of snow.  Grant was so excited to go outside and embrace what he could.
He said it was a "perfect day."

He wanted to stand underneath the run off water.

Sam had two DECA competitions. On the afternoon before one fieldtrip, I picked up Sam from school. He told me he needed a new suit.  I was feeling sick and ready to just go home and call it a day.  When we walked in the door there was a big box of clothing in the kitchen.  A friend of mine had told me she had some clothing for the boys to look through. On top of the box was a handsome suit coat.  I asked Sam to try it on and it fit perfectly.  There was a also a pair of very nice dress shoes, in his something like size 14 size!  Granddad took him out to buy a pair of pants, a new shirt, and a tie.  He looked smashing!  I was grateful that God knew our needs and answered them in that small way.  Sam took third place in parliamentary procedure, most notable because he hadn't even planned to compete in that event.
