You can make a tracing of the growth chart with wax paper. Someone did that for us when we left our previous house while we were packing and I treasure it!


Heheh I'm going to get my teeth cleaned tomorrow at noon... whatever made us choose right after Christmas to do this??


I know what you mean about missing your mom. Mine's been gone for 17 years and Christmas without her is still a little hard.

I'm glad things were otherwise pleasant and productive. Nantucket is looking quite wonderful!


Happy Holidays!

I spent the day on the couch eating and watching DVDs and football.

It's been 10 Christmases without my mother, and I'll always miss her.


Go to Home Depot and buy a piece of door framing, make the appropriate marks and take it with you when you go. Or better yet, pry off the old piece of trim, replace it and take it with you. There is no rule that says you have to leave it behind. Nobody will ever know if you match the paint well. ;o)

Nantucket is stunning, I'm reading along and checking out your details. Someday I might get brave enough to try it, I loved it from the moment I opened my mailbox.


I'm happy that you had a great Christmas Bron :) Love your husband's snazzy, colourful shirt. I had fond memories of my mother and father as well, who have both passed on but my ex seemed to have a lot of memories that I had forgotten so it was all good :) We went to my ex's place for turkey dinner and he ever an excellent cook. Most years we don't wrap his gifts but my son and I more than made up for it in the wrapping department this year :) You really look terrific Bron in that picture with your're so much smaller :) doing really well.


I am sorry you were so sad, Bron. I had wondered how this Christmas would be for you. That is a good idea to record all of your favorite "oldies" Christmas songs to help bring back memories. It is good to remember and cry a little.


Wonderful ideas on how to save our door frame growth chart! Thanks so much!

Regarding my Mom being gone: I really wasn't expecting to feel sad because she'd really been "gone" for many years due to Alzheimer's. But, I guess, at least she was physically present and that made a difference to my subconscious!

Jan - That shirt was a gift from Aussie friends of ours and for awhile Doug got a little too heavy for it to fit properly! Now he's lost about 20 pounds & is lookin' good. ::Grin:::
