This past weekend we got our Christmas tree up! Decorations are all out, and shiny too! :) I have been wanting to make ornament silhouettes, of the kids. I was in Hobby Lobby a few months ago, and found the cutest frame ornaments! Perfect! Yesterday, I went to work, and this is the final product. :)

wrapping paper...

I have been having fun making yo yo's, to put on top of presents.

I have heard of people wrapping the gifts, they put under their tree, in the same color scheme before. Before now, I never have given it much thought. Well, guess what? I gave it some thought...and am going to give it a try. I LOVE the reds, and whites. I am going to add a splash of green too. I actually, am kind of having fun, purchasing wrapping paper that match. Have you ever gone with a color scheme, for the gifts under your Christmas tree? I would love to hear about it. :)

Happy December...

Ohhh, how I love this time of the year. There is such a magical feeling in the air. I love the little things that I see. The lady from the Salvation Army, ringing her bell in front of my local grocery store. I love the Christmas music on the radio. I love the magic...yes the magic of December! Happy December 1st friends! We have 24 more days...who's counting? :)

Thanksgiving/New Moon...

Thanksgiving is 6 days away!!! I have a question for all of you? I really would LOVE, and I do mean LOVE, your responses, on this one. What are some of your favorite Thanksgiving dishes? We are having Thanksgiving this year, at our home. That means I am cooking. That means SOS! :) Send in the troupes! :)

Well, New Moon has officially be out 6 hours and 38 minutes. I got lucky, and didn't have to brave the crowds, and the late or early hours. I know we will be there sometime during the day, today. Are you planning on going? Did you already go? I am off....have a splendid Friday! :)

Saturday before the events.

Thank you for all of the warm comments. It feels sooo good to be back! :)

We have been to many wedding receptions, showers, etc. in the past year or so. This weekend we had 3 weddings, and a baptism we were invited to attend. I LOVE seeing people, that are in love! So happy, that they chose to spend forever together! It makes me reflect on Steve, and I. January 19Th, we will have been married 25 years. I love the fact that, I can talk to him about anything, and everything. Sooo much so, that last night I had Christmas, and Thanksgiving on my mind. It was about 2:00 a.m. He finally quit replying to me. I knew he wasn't asleep, because of the sound of his breathing...snoring! :) That is another post for another day. He finally piped up, and said, that he couldn't hear what I was saying!!! He played deaf! Love that man! :) HAPPY Tuesday!
