I just have not been able to find the time to post anything lately and I am sure a lot of people haven't had time to check in anyway. We have been getting ready for Christmas. My sister and brother are coming down on Thursday. My grandad(mom's dad) and grandmother are coming from Washington. We are all supposed to go to my Aunt Darla's(mom's sister) house for Christmas dinner. It will be a good time I am sure!! Darla just became a grandma again on Sunday. My cousin Tony and his wife Jessica just had a baby girl. She is coming home from the hospital today so we will all have a brand new baby to hold on Christmas. I still have a ton of laundry to get folded and put up but the kids have really been a big help this week on getting the house cleaned. OH! To share a blessing...I have talked some about Monty's job being sooo slow lately. He has not even been getting 40 hours for the past 3 or 4 weeks. This has hit us REALLY hard, especially since we are used to him having some overtime just about every week. Well the company decided that all full time employees get to have Christmas Eve, Christmas day , and the day after off for the holiday. He got home by 9:30pm last night so at least we know he will have 3 full 8 hour days this week. Also, they have decided to shuffle some of the shifts around, so as of January 12, he will work 12pm to 8pm instead of 330pm to 12 am. He was hoping to move to the first shift but this will be good. He should be more sure of at least 8 full hours and also if the night shift needs help he can always stay for overtime. We are not a go to bed at 830 get up at 630 start school by 800 kinda family. We are all night time kinda people, so if he gets home by 830pm, my kids will get to spend time with dad everyday. That will be something new for us all and we can't wait!! We haven't told the kids yet but I know they will be ecstatic!! Well I hope you all have a Wonderful Christmas!!!
