people, they are just so amazing it just shocks me every day what people do for others.

our little town has had its downs this year but now we are on the up again. I work in the library in town. santa pops by every year. I was not sure if he was coming to the library this year as our library got hit by the June 8th 500 year flood we got 3 ft of water inside and lost alot. as you can see from the library web site . i cant post a photo on my blog this is a happy blog. but getting to why people are so nice we have had over 100+ people helping, donating there time and lots of money donted and we are back well ready for santa that is. santa's helper's came and droped off over 100 persents and snack bags for today and a lady came and droped of hats and gloves and stuff from around the usa and england for all the familys to take and i have had lots of people drop of cookies well over 200 of them for tonights party in the town park lots of fun i cant wait for that. ( N2S , cant eat them valerie).. That is why people are so very nice.

I belive I got 4 1/2 hours sleep last night I couldnt belive it when I looked at the clock. I had to check on Charlie to make sure he was ok.

I cant belive he slept that long. Then I changed him feed him and went back to the 2 1/2 hour naps till we got up at 7am.

Well I should'nt say that we all got up then. I have to drag my kids out of bed they just dont like getting up so early. I dont know what I will do when my sister comes with her two for xams they get up @ 6am all the time, 7 days a week. ( I will have to come up with some rules maybe. )

(N2S) I put makeup on today, I dont know why I did.
