Don't Blink

I was sitting down at my computer and I looked at the date.
Tomorrow is March!!!
 
It actually made me a little sad.
 
I thought "It seems like Christmas was just here!!!"
 
Like it was just yesterday that we were
grinning until our faces hurt, at our kids in
the church Christmas program.
 
 
 
snapping pictures in the falling snow,
 
 
 
 
 
jumping on Santa's lap in the corner of the bagel shop,
 
 
and singing Jingle Bells on our two horse open wagon :)
 
 
Tomorrow being March just makes
 me realize how fast their childhood is flying by.
 
So if you see some crazy lady walking around trying to hold her eyes open...
 
 
That'd be me,
trying so hard not to blink because I'm afraid if I do...
 
...it'll be Christmas again
& everyone will be a whole year older.
 
Scary isn't it!
(& I don't mean that last picture :)

Hi Libbie, My Gramma use to tell me that as you grow older, time passes so much quicker ~ She sure was right! I remember like it was yesterday when my kids were little ~ I feel like my oldest was just 10 years old, now this summer, my Grandaughter Memphys will be 10 herself....
now unto another subject, have you heard about the town or towns around Stillwater, Minnesota? the girls I go to the movie & dinner with each Friday were talking about it, I think we are taking a road trip there sometime late summer, early fall ~ How far away from there are You & Kate?
One of these days (years) we have to meet up......
Stay Warm & Think Spring
