THANK YOU! for all your lovely Christmas messages, what a treat to have blog friends like each of you! I hope your Christmas was wonderful and that your new year will be overflowing with the goodness of God!

................ ................

We had a very special Christmas. Having our son home was a treat and we are excited that our daughter and her family will be here this Friday. On our Christmas Day, we slept in =), and leisurely opened our gifts scattering the green and red and gold papers everywhere while we delighted in the moment. Then we sat in front to the Christmas tree and our son put the camera on the timer and while the 10 seconds flashed by, he raced over and joined us. Several times or more. A lot of laughter but some of the best pictures turned out too dark but we had loads of fun =). Now, I'm a little too fat from the goodies but I can never be too grateful to God for his blessings! btw, have you seen my 'button bracelet'? Its on the previous post. Blessings to you! Hope your day bears just the fruit you want it too.

"Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name for ever and ever. Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unchangeable. One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts." Psalm 145:2-4.

Sounds like a wonderful celebration. Ours was wonderful, especially since our son is here and well.

We have another storm forecast for tomorrow, so we're kind of holding our breath. The streets are not cleared off yet from last week!

Thanks for coming by - am looking forward to "normalcy" returning, whatever that is! But first - undecorating!!

I'm happy that you get to spend time with your children (grown up kids) this holiday season. And sleeping in on Christmas must be a treat! The lovely button bracelet reminds me of Ireland ... the green is similar to shamrocks. Have a happy New Year celebration ...

I love your recent posts, you certainly have a talent for making rags into riches. Oopps, I didn't really mean the things you do crafts with are rags, it just came out that way. :-) You make such lovely things out of nothing, I guess I'd better give up. anyhow I really enjoy seeing the outcome of your crafts and your decorating abillities. (((hugs)))

Your Blog is a warm, cozy and welcoming place to visit. Much like your home I would imagine. I love the bracelet that you put together in your previous blog. So simple, and yet so clever. Glad to hear that you and your family had such a great Christmas. It goes by so fast, doesn't it? Cheers.
