To all of my brother & sisters:

Please do not forget to get me he stocking stuffers for Mom & Dad. I will be home on Dec. 23 so if you can wrap them and get them to mom & dad’s I will take care of the rest. If you need help thinking of what to give them, let me know. Thanks.


I’m in a very big giving mood this year and I started thinking about Mary Steve. She’s been a member of our family for so long and I want her to know that she is loved by all of us.

My thoughts were this: let’s put together a basket of goodies, such as the gifts that some of you already got for her, along with a pint of eggnog, some homemade cookies, and anything else we can think of that she might need for the holidays. We’ll all sign a card and deliver the basket on Christmas Eve or Christmas day, with all of our best singing voices so that we can sing a few carols.

Anyone else have any thoughts or ideas on this? I just really felt that she would feel special if we did something like this. So I guess I’m asking anyone if they would like to contribute? I’ll be home for a while and can bake some cookies, and maybe someone else could too. I can pick up some eggnog as well. Anyone else have anything they can think of????

Mom, do you have a big basket we could recycle? Could you make it look pretty with one of your perfect bows?


I wanted to write a post to thank Kenny and Sue for the wonderful Thanksgiving we shared at their house. We missed all that were not able to be there… Erin, Karen and Linda, Nick, Kris, D and Matty, Kay, Bob and Miss DeLaney, and Kevin. We did enjoy meeting Kelly’s soon to be husband, Karl, and note that he fits into the crew quite well! Welcome to Karl!

We have snow this year, but time will tell if it stays. Personally I hope it melts and we have 90 degree weather! ~grins like a grinch or Kimberneezer!!~ (By the way Kev, I am working to deck the halls!!!)

Everyone out there done with xmas presents? Just curious….

C man got three deer this year. A buck and two doe. The horns on the male deer do not come close to “Uncle Buck.”

I am counting down the days till we see all of you and also for Miss DeLaney’s arrival.
(Her nursery is adorable.)

Everyone have Happy pre-holidays and travel with safety.

All our love..
Kim and Clark


Well they are here and things are gearing up (actually in slow motion right now but it’ll be kickin’ up here at the DiSanto house after the 16th)! Icannot tell you how anxious I am (we are) to see everybody home for the holidays. Although it will be quite busy, that’s what makes it fun. I must admit though that I’m quite displeased with ya’ll that haven’t put anything on this page in quite sometime! You’d think you were busy or something c’mon you people, PRO-JECT! Kam just brought home a 10 week perfect attendance award, and got a 100+ on his spelling test today,he was very proud. For all of you “out- of-towners we have snow so bundle up. oh yeah i heard the carolina’s got a “little” ice.HA!HA! TALK LATER…SUSIE


Well…when do we think little Ms. D will enter into this world? What will she look like? (I placed a baby picture of Kay to compare) I know we are all excited to once again have a baby in our family and Kay C.- we all wish you and Bob the best.

By now I’m sure most have read there e-mail but just in case I’m posting it here (this is the kind of news we need to share).

“I am getting married. That’s right…..I know it’s probably a shock to most
but Karl and I will be getting married on January 1, 2003 at 3pm in my
living room. Uncle Eddie is agreed to come over and do the honors for us.
It will be me and my three kids, Mom and Dad, Karl and his three kids and his
parents and if anyone of you want to join us you are more than welcome to.
We will also have a reception sometime in February as soon as I have time to
book one. Hopefully at Club 86 with just hors’ derves (spelling) and cocktails.

And on the 1st it’s just the ceremony and maybe something afterwards. Not

So that is my exciting news. The kids and I and Karl are very happy. So if
you can join us we would love it and if you can’t I know you’lll be there in


Well another Tuesday weigh in- this time 2.6 for a total of 20.8 in 5 weeks, this I can live with.

Speaking of living or in this case dying- my neighbors found their daughter dead tonight. We don’t know why. We know she was on medication, we know she drank (she was an alcoholic) but we don’t know why. I didn’t know this lady well and my sorrow is more for the fact that one day you are here and the next gone. And when it is over- there is no time to make amends or make that call to say hi, or share good news or say “I love you”. In our busy worlds we let the important things go by…and that is sad. So wrapped up in our own worlds, with our issues, and our beliefs, we don’t take the few minutes necessary to do the right things, with or for the right people. We don’t forgive and heal we stay stuck and we view the world through lenses clouded with mistrust and anger and we lose sight that the world is beautiful. So tomorrow if you should die- what unfinished business do you have?


Well, it’s official. Delaney’s Baptism has been set up for Saturday, December 28th @ 3:00pm. This should accommidate everyone including Erin. Sorry Susie, I know that this screwed up Kameron’s Birthday, but unfortunately I was trying to make it so everyone from out of town would be here. I’m actually excited because I will get to see my Sweet Boy that day. If not, who knows if we would have made it back to Clyde. We’ll provide directions and details at a later day (probably Christmas). Make sure you mark your calendars!! Thanks, Kay


Well I did- I weighed in and lost .8 this week. This after eating only green things and exercising 45-60 minutes a day. What’s up with that? Then a read the following article- after I felt better and learned I could have ice cream one day per week!

To all of you who have children, I would really like it if you could get me a list of what they would like from Christmas.

I do not have a lot of time this year to do my shopping, therefore, the sooner I get the lists the better.

My e-mail address is and you can just forward the list on to me. I look forward to hearing from you.


With winter on the way (and for some already here), I thought this article could be helpful. Some of this I did not know… some of you smarter car people may already know though. Article from December 2002 Better Homes and Gardens:

Winster Wisdom
Cold-running care to keep your car running all season long

Most drivers fail to realize how hard winter is on their trusty automobiles. Here are a few pointers to keep things like your engine and chassis in top form, and your concentration where it belongs–on the road…


It’s wonderful to see so many entires- like Christmas morning (almost).

Well once again today was weight watchers day- another 5.2 for a total of 17.4 pounds. My newest thing is exercise (which isn’t all that bad). I even found that I can jog a little. The biggest problem is the foot I broke- it swells but I’m doing 45 minutes a day of bike and walk/jogging (put on some funky music and move this white body). I’ve been thinking lately and wondering why I ever got out of shape- how dumb because now you have to work like hell to get it back. I’m sure once I do I’ll be excited but now I just have to get through the Holidays.

For anyone interested, there is a cool site to help calculate points: Dottie’s weight loss zone. Check it out!

Till next week…eat less…move more!
