Well, here we are just a few days before Christmas...
All of that lovely snow that we had is almost gone..
We have been busy shopping, cleaning and decorating..
Not a thing wrapped yet but all in due time..
I think due time is running out.. smile..
But bit by bit I am getting there..
Just sharing a few pics of me trying to get ready for it all..
My fireplace is decorated..
Do you see my lovely reindeer candle holders?
I talked about them HERE..
I know the pic is not very good..
For some reason my camera is acting up..
I think the rechargeable batteries are like me and running on low...
But hopefully you can get the drift..
I will try and get a better one..
Here is my birthday present from Shonda..
A snowman's hat and underneath is a runner and also a couple of place mats from Trevor's...
These are on the dining room table..
The room is coming along and I will soon be able to show you..
It won't really get done until after the new year but at least it is a change and much more country feel...
Someone likes Grandma...
He is growing so fast..
And someone likes Grandpa...
A couple of tired out boys..
Who always wants to know if there are any of these in the house..
What are Grandmas for..
Oh.. I had to show you the dear dishes I found today at the Thrift..
Aren't they sweet?
Not a big set but lovely for just Terry and I..
I have not seen this pattern before..
I do wish there was another cup although Terry would not use it anyway.. grin..
Working away on a coffee cozy for someone..
It will actually be a whole week from today before all of our family are here at one time..
So.. I do have a bit of leeway.. smile..
We went shopping in Sussex today and met so many dear friends and even ran into our grandsons..I so enjoyed the day.. We met our youngest for lunch and they came up home for supper..
The wee boys were excited as the firetruck drove by with sirens going to let the kids all know that Santa had arrived in this wee place.. smile..
So on with the coats and boots and Grandpa even went along, too..
The boys had a chance to speak to Santa and get a lovely bag of treats..
There was only one problem..
When they got back home the oldest lad told his Mom he thought Santa was supposed to be bilingual..
He said that for some reason this Santa could not understand French.. grin..
Isn't that funny?..
Santa must have been resting and had a fill in, I guess..
I know Christmas isn't about Santa but kids have loved him through the years..
I heard the same wee boy listening to his mama as she told him about the real Christmas story, too..
Well, dear ladies I must go..
We have a lovely service tomorrow and are having guests going with us...
I need my
beauty 8 hours of sleep.. grin..
Take care, dear hearts..
Enjoy the rest of the weekend and we will chat again soon..
Thanks so much for visiting and welcome to the new followers..
So appreciate it..
Looking forward to hearing what you have all been up to..
