So much to do in so little time.
I have started saving all the crafty things I didn't get around to this season.
What do you think?
Isn't he cute?
And these can be made for Valentine Day too.

I think these will be a hit at grandson #2 class next year.
So I will be adding these and many more to the
saved file.
Look for them next year....

Hail Hail the gangs all gone.....
Thank goodness all the hussle and bussle
of the season is over,
now it is time to relax.
So grab you sweetheart and curl up
on the sofa and watch a movie.
And don't forget to be thankful for what we have.

As today being Christmas Eves Eve,
I have to come to the realization that
I will not be completing everything before Christmas.Like a quilt I was working on for my daughter.

And do we really need cake AND pies.
We should be tired of all the sweets.
I am gearing up for the all day cooking tomorrow,
endless wrapping, household chores, and endless questions
like....when will Santa be here
are we going to get to open one gift tonight.
Merry Christmas!

As Christmas gets closer and closer,
I am going to try and get all the photo on the blog,
but there is just so much time in a day.
Barbara and I saw this tree on another blog,
and had to re create it.
I love this Bronze color.

Happy Birthday Jesus!

To my sweet loving husband,

Each year when Christmas rolls around, I make you a list. And you go out on Christmas eve eve and purchase just what is on the list. There is part of me that wants you to be creative and actually listen to me and know what I want without a list. But there again, I really do want these items. I try to make it MALE PROOF. ( not too complicated) These are items I want but will not buy them for myself. I have wives that come into the shop and puts back items and then Hubby came by and picks it up. At least you look for the items. I know some wives that don't get anything. This will never be a option. So enjoy your shopping, do the best you can, I will love em no matter what. And if you need more suggestions .......Cash is good.

There is a local park in our area, that lets people decorate
" In Memory" displays.
Or local business will decorate.
It has become a Christmas Tradition to take the boys to see the lights.
This snowman was made from metal. Cool!
Grandson #2 wanted to walk alittle, even thought it is designed to drive thur.
He had to stand all the decorations that had fallin from the wind.

So we took this opportunity to snap a few pictures.

Once wasn't enough, so we let the top down and went again.
Once more around the park, my good man!

Some of the decorations are outstanding!

This was our favorite.
Some more work went into this one.
I think it was hand painted.

Just a few more photo from the decorating at the shop.
This week is really busy and next week I will finish up the
Christmas shopping.
Just a few more gift to get.
And then it will be Christmas!
Grandson #2 is so excited.
We went and saw the decorated park near our home last night.
He wanted to get out and walk, it was really cold and so I talked him into getting back in the car and we let the top down, cranked up the heat and bundled up.
He was happy and pawpaw wasn't freezing.

Next week will be the last week in a 10 week bible
study with this women.
Beth Moore
Beloved Disciples
If you get a chance to study with her,
I would suggest you run, not walk,
but run at the chance. I have learned so
much and am alittle sad it going to end.
Through her teaching my eyes have been opened to
many aspects that I have ignored for many years.
Her sense of humor and southern voice comforts me.
This had been a public service announcement.

quite day yesterday
don't you just love them.
set off a bug boom
in my bedroom
trying to get rid of the lady bugs.
oh my goodness.
if they are for good luck,
i am so lucky.
filled up the vacuum.
just in the bedroom, no where else.
I would like to get my hands on the crazy
person that set all them loose in
They were to help the crops.
But they are in my closets.
I have to vacuum everyday.
I hope the boom will help.
I don't like em......
Merry Christmas!

Have you had the time to "NEST" this
Christmas Season?
I had a few hours yesterday,
in between church and play practice.
And I really enjoy it.
I watched a movie on Hallmark channel, covered a few branches with
sheet music, and I rearranged the buffet for Christmas.
A lovely day.

Had a great time at Jenni Bowlin
Vintage Christmas Sale.
Went on to the Gaylord for a
few photos.
June had never been on the inside.
It was really pretty.
Wish we had been able to see it at night.
Maybe next year.

If you have a old fan you won't be using for awhile,
just wire a wreath to it.
Makes it look festive.
Christmas parade tonight!
Bundle up and go enjoy it.
Cost nothing and it will
put you in the Christmas Spirit.
