Rowing against the tide

  The new life, the new tree, the new normal...This tree has spawned some interesting decorations...I spy four different paper airplanes that I have never seen guess is that they sailed up there while I was sleeping.
And, what is a Ty stuffed animal doing on this tree????
Jean, you did an awesome job at putting the names on these stockings for the grands...Thank you sooo much
 With the kids off to a movie with friends...I got a chance to sew together some random blocks...sigh!
 Beth brought Christmas dinner tonight...I love you Beth....We ate this part early. 
And so it goes...the love of friends makes the going a bit easier.  Ken said tonight that with our group, if one member cannot row, then the rest just row harder.  That is so nice.

It's so cute that there are surprises on your Christmas tree. I love the random blocks you are sewing, they look good for sewing when you have 5 minutes here and there.

What a cute tree - and full of surprises too! Great quilt in the background there too. I love your random sewing blocks. They look like fun.

Friends are wonderful. Where would we be without them? So glad you have love and support when you need it.

Merry Christmas to you and yours!

You sound a bit overwhelmed now. Before you know it, the "new normal" will just be normal. To your very great credit, the children seem to be settling into their new normal. And it warms my heart, the support you get from your friends.
Be well.
