I hope you all had a
wonderful Thanksgiving, our family did, we have two new members this year
Patrick David who is 9 months old and Joshua Steven who is now 7 months old,
we're so thrilled to have those new grandbabies!
It was great to have
everyone together, with two policemen in our family, sometimes the schedules are
really hard to work around and I know there are many families who are not
so blessed, that have loved ones far away from them and loved ones in our
military, who are serving their country on the holidays, that has to be so tough
on families. I pray each one of us takes time to remember those families and
pray for them and their loved ones. Well, did you eat too much, I sure did and
it was delicious ...we finished up the last of the smoked turkey and gravy and
dressing and sweet taters a couple days ago. The memories are lingering in my
head...lol! AND...so now the HUGE holiday rush begins...oh my, I already feel
Isn't it amazing how
before you even get the pumpkins and cornstalks off your doorstep, some people
have their entire houses lit up and their trees lit in their windows?? It seems
to get earlier every year, this year I saw lights and trees up before
Thanksgiving...I don't quite get it..but to each his own, I guess.
I remember when I
was growing up, my Mom always waited until about the 10th of December to
start decorating, I don't know why, but that's how she did it and it seemed we
always had plenty of time before Christmas, of course we always left our
tree up until New Year's Day too.
Maybe it was because we
always had a real tree, that she waited until the 10th and now days
most people have the artificial ones, I've never had an artificial tree, nor do
I want one, I'm not down on those who do have them, I just love the scent of the
real trees and the fun of having a different one each year to take
pictures of and the thrill of the hunt! We are probably going to get ours this
weekend hopefully, I'm a bit under the weather so hoping to feel better by then,
saw the doc today, got some medication, hoping it will kick in by the weekend!
I'm achey and have a really sore throat...ugh, hate this
Since all the
Thanksgiving rush, I've not had time to craft much, but that will change this
coming week, when this procrastinating person will start Christmas cards...lol,
yes I know, every year I tell myself I will start them in January and every year
it's December, but oh well...as long as I get them done, it doesn't really
matter now does it?
Take care and God Bless
