Seasons Greetings Sweet Friends,
So how is it going?? Are you about ready?
Can't believe by this time next week
Christmas will be here.......can you??
I have been wrapping away, and starting
to think about our Christmas dinner and
tablescapes. We will just have brunch
here in the morning just us, and my
SIL Susan, then Scott, Megan and our
lil darling will come mid afternoon
and have Christmas dinner with us.
We are looking forward to all the
festivities and time together, as I am
sure you are with your families.
Going to Scott and Megans for dinner
tonight, so that will be fun and get us
out of the house for awhile.
Finally here are some pictures from
Christmas 2015........just have not had
time to take many and get them down-
loaded or uploaded, which ever it is!!
There will be more to come when ever
I can take some pictures. lol
So on with Thankful Thursday............
I am thankful
for the great time we had with our coworkers
and students at our annual Christmas party.
Was really lots of fun.
for our co-workers and that they love doing
Christmas Parties, which makes life much
easier for us, especially this year, being so
behind from our trip, and then being sick
everything checked out fine........ after hubby's
5 story work building was evacuated due to
a bomb threat on late Tuesday afternoon.
Shockingly there was not one word about
it in any of the local news.
to finally just be enjoying all our Christmas
decorations rather than looking at tall the
mess and boxes to get to this point. lol
for answers to prayer in a marriage
for some sweet friends that dropped by on
Monday just to bring us Christmas greetings
and homemade goodies, which are fabulous
by the way.......trying not to gobble them
all down so quick, but it is hard!! lol
for a very unexpected and good size escrow
overage check. We have learned tho....
that typically these windfall's are usually God
preparing us for something to come, and that
he takes care of us ahead of time.
So we no longer think hmmm,
what can we do with this???
for seeing a former church member/friend that
we haven't seen in years, and who has lost her
hubby some months back. We ran into her in
Target and we spent an hour or so talking with
her and she is really doing well, It was really
a blessing to see her. She has a very full and
satisfying life and a great attitude, even tho
she really adored her husband. God's grace
is certainly manifested in her..........
that Mimi over at A Tray of Bliss was so
sweet to feature my last Thursday post. It is
always so nice to know others appreciate our
Thanks so much Mimi....you are a sweetie.
If you have never visited Mimi she lives in
Australia and has a really great blog full of
great information and tips to improve life.
Visit her here
Believe it or not this above small arrangement
was made by our lil darling.........the container
is a toothbrush holder and she just stuck in the
poinsettias the way she wanted. She is only
2 3/4 years old, think she is a talented lil
girl already.........course, I am not biased
in anyway, of course! lol
that I found quite by accident, course, I don't
really believe in accidents for a christian, so
I really think it was by divine intervention, so
might as well say it!! lol A fisher price
children's Nativity set.......hubby and I both
thought it was so adorable we just couldn't
resist getting it for lil darling......we gave i
to her on Wed,, and she really liked it.
that we have gotten 2/3 of our wrapping
done and hope to finish the rest today.
that Dee got to go Christmas shopping
with her hubby in Greenville, S.C. and
loved the town, and they had a great time,
and then she went shopping with a friend
and then made christmas cookies with
another friend......all of those are things
she misses not being in Florida with
the family...........so know it made this
Christmas more fun for her........
and Jerry's Mom and Dad are coming
in tomorrow until Tuesday, so they
get to see some family too, and will
have Christmas just the 2 of them for
the first time..........so they are looking
forward to that as well.............
and then she will be coming here the
night of the 26th.........
Happy you could pay a visit, and
hope things are coming along nicely
at your house.
"Most Wonderful Time of the Year"
Love, Hugs, and
Blessings for a Merry Christmas!
