The man who puts up with me & the kids that help him

If you will recall, I posted a few days ago that my wonderful hubby had bought me a new computer for my birthday and Christmas (both in December).  I really missed my blogging and he knew it.  Well, Christmas morning I was so surprised to find out that he had also got me another beauty and here it is!

My 2012 Christmas gift from my wonderful husband!

This is very special to me because he knows I’m not a jewelry girl at all but for the last four years he has got me a dainty necklace for my birthday or Christmas.   This one he picked out himself at a reputable jeweler.  The only time he’s ever set foot in these places is to buy my wedding rings 40 years ago.   I don’t wear jewelry except for my wedding rings UNTIL he got me these gifts.  Here’s a  picture of the first one he gave me but had my daughter pick it out after telling her what he wanted for me!  I am so blessed!!

This year because of the economy our kids asked that we not exchange gifts with them because work has been slow for both households.  I always go overboard when it comes to gifting for them and it make my Christmas a little “strange” to say the least.  On Christmas night when we got together they pulled a fast one both kids got us gift certificates to our favorite restaurant.  I love them so much and appreciate all they do for us every day!!I also received two unusual but beautiful gifts from my granddaughter, Victoria!  The first is a copper hearth cricket and as the  Legend has it,  a cricket in the house will bring good fortune to the home when placed on the hearth or mantel.  Mine is living on the mantle in our living room.

The other beauty she got for me is a Patina watering can shaped like a goose.  She knows how much I love gardening inside and out and this little goose will be used often.

My family is so good to me and I love them so deeply that there are no words to tell them how much!!!
