She lived a great life

We recieved some bad news Jan 28 this year, yeah, bad news already. My Grandma Hall passed away suddenly with her kids by her side. She was such a great Grandma to all of us kids here, and even to everyone else she came in contact with. The one thing I think our whole family remembers about her is the food she always prepared for us while visiting. Her food was amazing!! Didn't matter what she made, it was always so perfect and delicious. One of my many memories of her is being at her house when we were little and she was in the kitchen (of course), grandpa watching tv or doing something outside, and all of us kids just waiting for lunch, or dinner. Nobody could ever pass up her food, there was something in it that we just couldn't resist. Grandma=Food!!! :)

We are sad that she is gone, but we know we are all going to see her again, just as she got to experience with my Grandpa. He has been gone for 15 years and she was just waiting to be with him. I am sure it was great for the both of them to reunite and see eachother again. Love you Grandma!


Another year come and gone...geez...why does it go so fast? Shawn and I had a good Christmas this year, we didn't spoil eachother, kinda kept it low key. We both got some clothes for eachother, and good job to Shawn for getting me pants that fit and look cute!! We spent Christmas Eve at his parents, had some great food, played games and opened our presents. I was dreading the rest of our time at his parents cause they always watch Christmas Story...ugh...that movie is horrible, thank goodness there was a lot of noise and no attention to the tv. We spent Christmas morning at my parents, had chorizo for breakfast, separated all the presents and waited for everyone else to show up. My nephew Graiden was so excited for the presents, he helped crawl under the tree to get all the presents out from under to put in their piles..he loved every minute of it. Once everyone was there we took turns opening presents, we ususally let the families with kids go first cause we're not that anxious. It was our turn to open and I was so excited cause I had a big box (which I saved for last) thinking it was a Cricut. I had been talking about getting one for quite a while, and I would hint to Shawn everytime we were at a craft store. I had my nieces help me open the "big box" and as the paper started coming off I looked at the box and saw a hose...cricuts don't have hoses... more paper came off and I saw wheels...Shawn got me a Shopvac. SERIOULSY...A SHOPVAC
Needless to say I was very upset, and I looked at Shawn (he was grinning) saying "it's a shopvac." He told me all the cricuts were out, but he walked away with a good deal on the vac. I don't care...I want my cricut!!! So I went to the bathroom to finish my hair and he followed, my chin started quivering and yeah...I was crying :( I know it's the thought that counts, and presents aren't that important, but it was still upsetting to me. He gave up his little secret and told me I had a cricut at his parents that I was to open I stopped crying, smiled and gave him a hug! He is such a good guy! was a Great Christmas!!!
