Heres the miniature horse that I had an order for. A girl I work with had to have her daughters horse put down and she cut off and cleaned part of the horses tail for me to use on a tiny horse for her. I think it turned out ok. I hope she likes it. I really didnt know how to make a horse, so I had to wing it! I also finished allllll those bears! my time is mine now.. well then of course theres this....

My husband did end up having to have some very serious surgery yesterday afternoon. Its been a long and difficult week! He ended up with a colostomy bag. He is a "young", strong , healthy man so this is very hard to swallow. It is temporary though. the doctor said about 3 to 6 months and then he can reverse it. thank God for that. I ve had a rough couple days and have cried my share of tears for him.. but today he is handling it pretty well, so I am feeling better. Scared to death of taking care of him when he comes home though. We're hoping that he will come home on Christmas eve. Though as much as I want him home, like I said, Im scared to have him home. Well.. god is good all the time.. and he will get us through this. I will appreciate any prayers for a quick recovery and comfort for my husband that anyone cares to send up for him.

He kicked me out of the hospital at 7:30 cause he wanted to sleep. so I came home, put on some comfy pjs, ate an english muffin and a cup of decaf tea. the kids are all out, (if you want to call them kids... ages 19 to 26) and my daughter Bethany just called and wants to come over and watch a movie with me. I mixed up a batch of sugar cookie dough, so were going to bake and decorate some cookies too.

Merry Christmas everyone!

He was born at home you talk about someone being mean. And with everything they give them he didn't remenber telling me to go home.It's a man thing. They not like a woman!!!Take care of your self.You will need it when he gets home. I plan to do the christmas party again next year . have a few more people that want to be in it. I been sick with some kind of a cold or flu since the 15 , Have A merry Christmas.

Prayers for you and your family! Hope you had a nice evening w/your daughter, despite. I would be afraid when they (husband) come home and worry over them too! so, here is too a peaceful Christmas Eve for you all and a very speedy recovery to your husband. Just take one day at a time and soon it will all be behind you. baby steps, too much thinking ahead makes us fearful!!! Still keeping in my prayer list!!!
