Watching my kitty getting ready to pounce on the Christmas tree then just as she was getting ready to jump we yelled and she took off. Then she decided that it was more fun to stalk my 16 year old DD. She kept jumping on her while she watched TV, go hide and do it all over.

Kades, I think we are the winners to have you and the love you show to your family and us.

Smoke King, you always talk about your grandson with such love and pride.

Suzi, sometimes it is great when the weatherman is wrong!!!!!

Expat, I can just picture your granddaughter, that is so priceless!

My smile? Knowing that my DC family is smiling....oh and yay, I have my nice big computer desk back in the office after loosing it to borders for the last two years!

mikki, my former two cats (mother and son--may they rest in peace) use to crack us up with their antics. They always tried to get into the formal living room, one room that they weren't suppose to--it has doors separating it from the family room but if the doors were even slightly ajar...well...Patches would be the lookout and Pippin was one who would start entering the room. When caught, Pippin would start walking out backwards as if that would undo his wrong deed (or maybe he thought he was Supercat) and Patches would look innocent as if she were not the look out at all.

My mom. Today, she was all smiles and said that she loves that I visit her. Her eyes lit up when she said it. It was sooooo sweet!

Our neighbors to the left of us got two new horses today. They were so beautiful running around in the snow covered field. It looked like a Christmas card came to life.

I went to a friend's party tonight and another couple haven't seen me in about 6 months. I came waltzing in with no cane and went up and down the stairs with little difficulty and strutted over to them. They both hugged me with tears of joy in their eyes. It is really fun to see people's reactions to my new found freedom!

I received a special Christmas card from a new friend from Texas. It was very kind, sweet and thoughtful to be added to her list.
