I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. This was a very tough Christmas for us. We had a wonderful time with family and friends and had terrific foods and received lovely presents. Unfortunately we all had a difficult time holding onto the the joy of the holiday for more than a few moments before being sad that Lia was not with us. It left a huge hole in our holiday.
On Christmas night we went over to my parents house so that we could call Lia and wish her a Merry Christmas. My parents haven’t been able to talk to her since she was taken from us. We were all looking so forward to that call! Sadly, we tried a couple of times to call and even sent a text asking what would be the best time to call her, but apparently talking to her on Christmas was not allowed. That was very hurtful and heartbreaking. And very sad for Lia. She was denied the chance to talk to people she loves and love her and that have been her only family for her entire life. She wasn’t able to wish us a Merry Christmas and to tell us all about her Christmas.
What is really sad is yes, we were all hurt but, we are all adults. To deliberately hurt a little child and punish her is just cruel and emotionally abusive. But, I guess that is to be expected.
I pray she had a good Christmas. It makes me a bit nervous that we weren’t able to talk to her. I instantly thinks something bad happened or she simply did not have a good Christmas. Because if she had a wonderful Christmas, Amber (Bio mom) would have been thrilled to have her talk to us so she could be all excited and tell us all about her gifts and what she did. But, that was not the case.
And the woman who supports child abuse, child endangerment, child suffering, child neglect and doesn’t believe in protecting children in any way shape or form, Susan Hubbard, The Cowardly Judge, issued her denial for Motion to Stay. This coward once again would not face us and tell us that she is going to deny the motion. She cancelled our hearing and issued her decision via mail. If she knew she was right in her decision, as a Judge in a Court, she would have faced us. But, we all know what a slimy, underhanded, unethical, immoral liar this woman is.
By doing what she has done, she has jeopardized the integrity of the entire Wayne County Court Legal System. By being allowed to to do this a second time, that leads me to believe that the “higher ups’ in the court are all committing fraudulent behavior. By not reining in this insidious woman, the overall court is screaming that they condone and engage in corruption.
We are looking into who exactly are the “higher-ups” in the court and will be publishing that information as soon as we can. And this time around, I will be actively pursuing a bombardment of letters written to these people (or person). These people need to know that the world knows what they have done and what they are continuing to support. They need to know that this behavior is NOT acceptable!
Yes, they have already done this evil deed but, that does not mean they can get away with it and sweep it under a rug!
Troy has written a post about the facts here: Susan L. Hubbard: Coward, Fraud, Judge
She remains in our prayers and in our hearts every second of every day.
We love you Sweetheart! And we will NEVER stop fighting for you!
Okay, on to the party (sorry about all the above. It was just a hard Christmas for us and our hearts are still aching. Once again, the best interest of Lia was ignored.)
As I have said throughout the holiday season, money is very tight here this year and it was going to be a thrifty Christmas. I know a lot of people when they are financially strapped at Christmas decide to not exchange gifts between spouses. I don’t believe in that. My spouse is my soul mate, my strength, my love. Why would I ever not give him a gift? He is my rock. Now, with all that said, Troy and I discussed our budget and knew we had to get creative with each other’s gifts. And that is just what we did!
I love unique jewelry…not expensive…but, unique. At one of the last holiday shows we did before Christmas, Troy spoke with other vendors and let them know he was open to the idea of trading our product for other vendor products. That was a successful venture on his part, and everyone ended up having a fun time the last hour of the show doing their holiday shopping via “Barter and Trading” with other vendors.
He ended up getting me numerous sets of pretty, unique and fun jewelry. And yes, I went out into the snow blizzard to take pictures of this set on our snow covered table. LOL It looks like it was taken on a piece of cotton batting. Nope, that is snow!
And I love the idea that he did not spend a dime out of pocket for any of the jewelry! And the fact that we supported local small home crafted companies makes me even happier.
Holy Cow! I just realized that this is the last TTF party until 2013! I hope all of you have a wonderful and safe New Year! Let’s hope that 2013 is a great year for everyone!
Here is a little eggnog toast to you all for a fantastic 2013!
Okay, show us your thriftiness!
