Winter wishes


I just love this Hello, Penguin by Betty Edwards over at Can You Digi It?

He just really makes me smile. And I'm not a winter person or a Christmas person really. I mean you wouldn't know it by how I get all crazy wanting to be sure we have the "perfect" Christmas. But that's cause my Christmas memories as a child weren't that great.

I mean it's hard growing up and having your birthday fall around that time of year. For a birthday present I would basically have to pick one of my presents from under the tree. And I may have had a little cake but definitely no parties for me. Our trailer park was just too small for that.

And then as a teen when we lived in the apartment it really wasn't much better. Then my last Christmas with my dad was tragic, lets just say he had to divorce my mom after that or the State wouldn't let me come home.
