Blue Monday ~ Gifts From My Sons…

Welcome to Blue Monday hosted by Smiling Sally from Florida. Each Monday we’re invited to post something blue to share. Click over to Sally’s to see more blue or to join in with something blue on your blog.


Both of my sons gave me blue gifts this Christmas. My 2nd born son Dan gave me that soft Adidas warm up jacket that I’ve enjoyed wearing already. The Soccer jersey from my firstborn Josh and his wife Laura is an away jersey for our very own Seattle Sounders FC. This year is the first year Seattle has a MLS Soccer team. Josh bought season tickets. My boys know their mom learned to love soccer after years of driving them to and watching them play at school and in special leagues. Soccer became my favorite sport to watch. You’ll catch me watching English league soccer during the week on cable. When World Cup Soccer comes around I try to catch every single game televised even if they are on at 4:00 a.m.Β  One sport I’m sure to watch during the Olympics is Soccer.

Thanks for visiting my Blue today and I hope you all have a great week.

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007 to 2015 hostage and has replaced them all with ugly black and grey boxes asking for a ransom to have them re-published. Such a frustrating bother as I go through each post to delete the ugly boxes.

  1. Ellen, you have two mighty sweet boys, and I love the blue! I am wearing blue sweats right now! I need to be wearing my jammies. LOL!

  2. You’ve raised those boys right; they think about what you’d like for a gift. I’ve learned a bit more about you today. You’re the Ultimate soccer mom! Happy Blue Monday.

  3. What sweet gifts from your sons! My oldest graduates from Georgia Tech this spring….and he gave me a fleece from the school as an early Christmas gift….. makes me feel hugged by him when I wear it…and somehow, a little warmer than I might have been if I had purchased it for myself!

  4. Ellen, I can see you do love sports. Your son’s are so thoughtful with those lovely shirts they knew you would love. Ticket too. Your sons rock!!! Have fun wearing them.


  5. Hi Ellen
    Two lovely and snuggly blue gifts from your guys. Isn’t that special. I guess you would have to be into soccer having been so active with it while your boys were growing up. Nice. Thats very special you did that with them…hence the lovely shirts. Enjoy.
    hope you’ve had a great day.

  6. So nice to meet you. I have my hubby’s computer… don’t tell.
    Love your blue gifts. I also have 2 boys still in their teens.
    Happy Blue Monday
