I would like you'll to meet our newest family Member

We have a new addition to our family!
Scroll down!










What did ya'lll think?

I'm a little to old to be having anymore children. My son, Aaron and daughter, Becca, are both way to young to be getting married and having children. My oldest son, Bret and his wife, Jess, are finished having children.
Blogging friends, everyone, I would like you'll to meet our newest Christmas member, Rudoff.

I got up this morning and what to my wondering eyes should appear, but this very lovely reindeer. My husband asked one of his co-workers to make it for me. How SWEEEEEEET! He thought it would go perfect in our Living room. OH, how right he was! I think he's getting in the Christmas spirit. Hee, Hee

BTW-Did ya'll notice I figured out how to put my kids names on the stockings? I had my niece and family over last night for dinner and hair cuts. I got glitter out for my five year old great niece to play with. I wrote her name with glue on a piece of paper and we put the glitter on. We walked into the living room and she asked me if I could wait until she came over again to put my kids names on our stockings. DUH, why didn't I think of that.

I also received another wonderful blessing today.

I cleaned an office building for a few months back in the summer months. One thing lead to another and I never got paid! I just wrote the money off in my head and thought I would try to be smarter about who I worked for in the future. Guess what was in the mail today? Yes, a check for almost a $1000.00. What better time of year to receive such a blessing.

Ho, Ho, Ho and a Merry, O, Christmas!

Last but not least;

It was my sisters 46th Birthday yesterday! "Happy Birthday Cinda" My sisters children asked us all to meet at a restaurant tonight for a surprise Birthday party for my sister. There were 40 of us altogether. It was my two brother and their families, my parents and family, my sisters children, and me and my boys. It was a lot of fun!

I love being with family!

Cute little reindeer! Hooray for the $1000!!

Lori said...

Kathy,

I thought it was cute also! I guess the guy that made this for my husband, Normally makes the big deer for hunters. It is cool!

The 1000.00 was a great blessing right now.

Lori said...

Hey Mom,

I think Cinda seemed pretty happy tonight that all us showed up for her Birthday party. I had a good time! I got a good nap today so I felt pretty chipper tonight. The boy's just loved being with Zack, D.J. and Christian.

To much fun!

Our family seems to be getting pretty close again.

MaMa said...

How did you know I would read this tonight HeHe So good to see you my precious daughter!
Yes I agree she looked like she really did have fun and sometimes she does not realize how much we do love her.
By the way she kept looking for you to talk to you. She thought you were sitting next to her. That really made me so happy.
You are loved and congratulations on the 1000. that God Blessed you with when He felt you needed it. (smile) He knows!
You realy do deserve the Special BLessing.

Love
Mom woops MaMa

Mom,

Don't worry, I'm o.k. I'm been sleeping since I came in from the route.

I left my phone in the truck, Jim took the truck to work because of the roads.

Love you lots,

Lori

e-Mom said...

It was fun to read your exchange between you and your Mom. You have the most joyful family life!

Your newest family member is all the more special because of its maker. :~D

Jim said...

You have a large family to attend your gatherings also. Ours gathered with 17. We were missing one grandchild and his wife.
I like your stockings. My is on the cabinet, I haven't hung it yet. It is red and white and says "Nebraska" on it.
We won't get it mixed up with Mrs. Jim's. And Santa knows.

Lori said...

Hi E-mom,

I do have to say, I love my mom. She really is the reason I am, the way I am. That sounds a little strange but I don't know how else to word it. If you were around the two of us, you would understand.

Love Ya,

Lori

Jim,

I bet your gatherings are as much or more fun then ours.

I am glad Santa can tell your stocking apart. Hee, Hee,

hugs,

Lori

Lori said...

Hey Mom,

I was telling Jim the story of you looking at our blog the other day and your comment about your new Grandchild. He said to tell you we flew to the North pole to adopt him.

Hee, Hee

MaMa said...

Oh my that is such a wonderful gift, I did not know you could fly to the North Pole.
Congratulations to you both on that cute little Rudoff and I will see him soon to give him a little hug. HeHe

Love
MaMa

Lori said...

My husband thinks he's very funny.

BTW-Do I get the fried things for Christmas or New years?

groovyoldlady said...

Welcome to little Rudy. I DO hope he's housebroken!


Awesome blessing about the backpay!

MAMA said...

BOTH MY DEAR!

Love
MaMa

Lori said...

Mom,

Are you for real! My mouth is watering just thinking about eating my favorite Christmas cookie. If Cinda would just make that date nut cake, I will have everything I want for Christmas.

I don't think I have to tell you how much I love you Mom.

Your favorite daughter, (We won't tell Cinda) Hee, Hee,

Lori

Lori said...

You are to funny!

Blessings and thank you,

Lori
