After Christmas Greetings
Hope you all had a really
lovely Christmas with your
family and/or friends.
Pics today are of my Son and
Daughter-in-loves Christmas tree.
They got a faux one last year but
I didn't get to see it until this year
and it is really a beautiful tree,
The pics are beautiful but they
really don't look near as nice
as in person for sure. I love
that it is flocked and that the
lights give it so many different
Well, late as usual....so will get
on with my Thankfuls......
Thankful that the Lord put a certain
family who lost their wife, Mother
and Grandmother on my heart on
Sunday morning, so that I could
make and take a card to them just
to let them know we care and were
praying for them, and it also
reminded me about praying for so
many others who lost loved ones
this year in our congregation, and
that they were facing their very
first Christmas without their loved
ones, and most likely would be a
sad day for them.
So easy to forget that when
you are having a good time.
in the process of turning gold
Thankful for a lovely Church
service and dinner at Cracker
Barrel with our friends.
Thankful to have mostly every-
thing done other than the last
minute things you always have
when hosting Christmas.
Thankful that we were able
to have our friends over on
Christmas Eve and we had a
really great time reminiscing
about our most memorable
Thankful for the Best Pecan Pie
I have ever eaten, that my friend
made and brought to us. She said
it was out of a Southern living
magazine recipe. It just happens
to be my favorite Pie and she
didn't know that either.
So Merry Christmas to me!! lol
Thankful to our neighbors and
friends who showered us with
really yummy goodies, so many
we can hardly contain it all.
Now she's in her blue phase
#7 and 8
Thankful for a really wonderful
Christmas, even tho our daughter
and son-in-love didn't get to come
this year. We did get to talk to her
quite a bit in the morning and again
in the early afternoon, as her hubby
had to work till about 3-4 or so,
as he works in the medical field.
Thankful she was doing fine with
it thanks to a friend's hubby who
was in the military who gave her
some real perspective.
Cause after all.....Perspective
really is everything.
Thankful for a wonderful time
with the family here. My sister-
in-law was here for brunch
and the rest of the day and our
son and his family came about
3:30....but we had a great 5 1/2
hours. Visiting, eating and
playing a few games.
Now in her pink phase. such a cool tree.
Thankful that we decided to
have lil darling spend the nite
and had her most of the day on
Thursday. She was in a great
mood when she first go up but
then around 11:30 or so she was
having melt downs, just way
over-tired I think, but she was
good... just weepy at times.
Bless her heart.....
Thankful that we got thru 3
dinners with the same table-
cloth which meant I only had to
change out the place settings
and do a minor changes to the
centerpiece which sure made
my life easier. lol
Their lil dog Lola who is just
the sweetest lil thing....
and last but definitely not least is
lil darling the sweetest lil
girl we know.....with Lola.
Can't believe she is gonna be 7
years old in a few month.

Broccoli casserole and corn
Pudding, and strawberry fluff.

of the time anyway. lol
