    Although I got a lot of very nice gifts from Joe, a flatscreen for the bedroom, a bulldog calendar, a bra, (yes a bra, lol, and it fits! what man would buy a bra for his wife???) and several other gifts my most FAVORITE was talking to my Eldest son (he's 27) and he has 2 weeks clean!!! It was so nice to hear my son back and not nodding out while we were talking. So many times I have had to say..Brandon are you still there??..He was clear headed and had his funny humour back. He is staying at my mom's right now and she said he looks WONDERFUL!!! That is the best Christmas present I could ever get!!!!

    That's great news Kelly! My family has been going through the same thing with my little cousin, and he's on the right path now, too. I know its a great relief!!

    I got triple Bailey button uggs, perfume, a 116 piece flatware set.. So I can host holiday functions! Pj's & cozy sleepers.. And much more.. It was a great Christmas, so much to be thankful for this year, a lot of my family has had major health problems in 2011.. And we were all together, what a blessing!

    Thank you all as I am sitting here in tears, you know I don't let my co-workers know, well actually no one knows so I don't have anyone to vent/cry when I need to or share the good news!!
    I have had such a hard year with Brandon, thought for sure I was going to loose him permantly to Herion, but I have also had a very blessed year with my husband. I almost gave up a few times, then I have to remind myself (through the therapy I have been getting) IF Brandon ever gets his life back and I gave up mine to help him well enable him as I did all last year, then when he is all good and on the right path, that leaves me alone and divorced. Tough choices I had to make between my son and my new husband. Enableing him was just helping him kill himself. When they say tough love, trust me I KNOW what tough love is. I have sat many nights feeling guilty and crying.

    Here's to a new year and hopefully a new beginning!! Brandon faces 4 felony charges in a month. I am hoping with him getting clean on his own, and having to do random drug test it will help his case.

    Love to all!!! xoxo

    I am so happy Brandon is turning his life around, that is the most wonderful gift to himself as well as his family!
    My favorite gift this year was a donation to the Oregon Food Bank.
    I need to add that I am hard to buy for.

    Kelly...your gift IS the best ever. Someone saving themselves from something like drugs is honestly a very precious thing..I so hope he keeps on this path. But..I see another gift in your story. You have given yourself a great gift too. Your OWN happiness. This is the only life you get..live it for yourself. Your son will hopefully realize THIS is his ONLY turn around the block too and learn to love himself too much to use drugs. to you Kelly!!
    As far as my gifts..too many..too wonderful...but one of the best was my hubby taking my grandaughter to the SAME schoolgrounds he taught both our daughters to ride at...and he taught her to ride her shiny new 2 wheeler Schwinn..no more training wheels! Woo Hoo!! I told him."you just gave Ayden a life memory"..and those can't be wrapped!!

    That is good to hear Kelly!!

    I didn't get much this year. I told family that it was all for the kids. My mom of course didnt listen and got me a Kindle. Just a basic with WiFi. I have a smart phone so thats all I need.

    Oh Kelly I am so pleased .... we all know the hardships and grief you have had this last year with your son and I am just so happy for you. Two weeks is such a long time in an addicts life and so BRAVO to him for staying on course ... it's all about taking one step at a time!!!!


    Well I had a VERY good Christmas ... I got my iPhone a couple of weeks ago and didn't really expect anything else until after many weeks of talking about it we decided to get Baby Linus!!!!!! So although it's for all of us, I keep telling everybody that Linus is my christmas present and that Tom and Juliet have gone to get him for me!!!!


    I really wasn't expecting anything else, as I think that what I already have was more than enough, but my husband suprised me with two nice big gift cards for Target and TJ Maxx/Marshalls .... my two FAVORITE stores!!

    I am a VERY lucky girl this year!!!

    Kelley that's great news I hope he continues on this path and doesn't stray away again but I'm so glad HE is willing to get better!

    As for gifts I got a awesome slr canon camera, and for a early bday present from my dad and step mom they got me a 75mm-300mm lens!!! I love it so much!! I have a camera bag that I should get this week!! Jeff also got me one of those huge soft blankets that can fit 3 people in it!!! I got Jeff an espresso/ cappuccino machine and I love it lol, yes he loves it too lol. I also got him a blu ray player for the bedroom!
