I got a lump in my throat when I looked at this picture, realizing that the time will go so fast, we will blink and they will be driving away heading to college.... :(

I got this hand-crank-generated power vehicle from Woot for Greg, figured it would be something he could use in his science class....he and Jonathan put it together, Jonathan insists that the instructions be read which is probably a good thing.....IT WORKS!!!
And a new knife and cutting board from the Dieterich families....and Greg got an awesome new Dewalt cordless drill!!! He has already used it so couldn't get a picture without going to the garage....thanks guys, we love them!!

But my favorite by far was this.....and it is self explanatory.....I LOVED IT!!!
He also got coffee mugs/hot chocolate mix, a tie, pencils, candy, etc. but the "jingle bell rock" was by far the best!!!

Back during the late summer, my bottle tree fell and all but about 7 of my bottles broke. Not only was I disappointed because they were broken, but what a mess in the yard!! I picked up as many large pieces as I could and then used the shop vac to suck up any small pieces of glass (thankfully it was during the drought and the grass was dead, making it fairly easy to see most of the pieces). Greg did some modifications on the tree, and set it in concrete.....it isn't going anywhere now!! Then my quest was to get it filled with various bottles again. I called on a friend down the street and she provided quite a few, especially the large blue bottles that are on the top. I began searching for a red wine bottle and finally found one at HEB. Darn, I had to drink the wine to be able to empty the bottle to put it on the tree!! Wasn't really good wine but wasn't bad either, and at least I got my red bottle!!
