Well here it is Christmas Eve, the time has gone by so fast. We are home safe and sound this year, cause we are in the middle of a blizzard. Good thing we were going to be home for Christmas this year cause we ain't going no where. Probably wouldn't be able to go any where any way even if it wasn't snowing and blowing. Peanut is sick and we couldn't leave her home and we go and have fun that would not be cool.. I never got a Christmas card out this year I guess I just haven't been in a festive mood this year. Some cookies did get baked, candy is waiting to be done. I did get my letter typed so I still might get my card out but they will mailed after Christmas, guess it is the thought that counts right. We had a death here in town of a young girl of 24-25 years old. It really got me thinking of all the stuff we take for granted. Like having a tree to decorate, warm place to live, friends, family, life, even the really small things like have a glass of water. It is amazing what God has given us and we do not thank him for that. And I am one that doesn't, so thank God for the little things in your life no matter how small or how big or silly you might think it is. Today I will thank him for my pictures of the year and my Christmas tree ornaments. I cherish them all, boughten ones, homemade one, I love them all!
I wish most of all health for everyone this coming year.
Merry Christmas to all and God Bless!

First snow of the year!!

Yippee I am so loving this weather. Surprisingly I didn't even pray for it yet. So this is just an awesome gift from God. Now I know not everyone feels the same way I do but I guess they will have to live it. In the middle of baking cookies for Christmas I went out and took a few pictures and I just want to share them with you. I LOVE WINTER!!!!!!!

Well I see I hadn't changed my FALL background, so I thought I better get with the Holiday theme. I hope you like what I have chosen for this. The picture was my attempt to taking pictures of one of my new ornaments. I feel I will never get the hang of taking pictures in the house. I used to be able to take pictures with my 35 mm camera with no problem why is this any different? I think I am making it harder that what it really is. Happy Holidays Everyone!!

Park Theater Mall in Estes Park, CO Ravaged By Fire

I'm just so sad that this has happened. I grew up going to these shops. I was in shock when my mom emailed me an article from the Greeley trib. I loved going to the Christmas shop that was always my first stop when we would go up to Estes Park. I pray for those who have lost there business. My heart goes out the community, I know this is devastating to them. Our prayers are with you all. Thanks for stopping by today.

Did a litte of scrapbooking

Hey I finally scrap booked my niece Kara's graduation pictures, so I thought that I would share them with you. She graduated in May and I finally got to them, it's not like I have no time I just have not had the energy or the will to do it. Now my craft room is more organized and cleaner I am wanting to do more. So look for more pages in the future.
