Can you believe that it’s here? Are you all ready for the big day tomorrow? Are you still wrapping gifts? Or have you already started unwrapping them? We are doing both…still need to wrap some. I use to love wrapping everything but not so much anymore. Actually, I don’t mind it once I get started..it’s just sitting down and starting it. Digging everything out..like the tape that has been in the drawer so I would be able to find it. Then when I go to get it, it’s not there! And I only I have myself to blame..so I look through all my craft drawers for another roll…there is always another roll or two in there. No, nothing there so I’m bring a box out of my craft room to use to put a gift into. Sit the box down on the coffee table and spot my tape..didn’t I just look there? Guess not! So, I sit down on the floor to wrap..I loose the tape..didn’t move anything but my arms and hands…and leave it to me to loose something. I do the same thing with ink pens..Oh, I also have help..no not my dh but our little dog..only she really doesn’t want to help but she wants to play ball…keeps picking the ball up and putting it in the middle of my wrapping..sometimes I think she’s jealous..LOL oh, well…she’s so cute.
Here are the Christmas cards that I made this year..of course I also wait till last week to get those done…mailed at the end of the week, this week and some not mailed. Where did the time fly to??? Dunno…it sure got away from me this year though.
Thought I would show a few pictures of our tree..well, not the tree but some of the ornaments. I don’t do a theme..Oh, don’t get me wrong I think “themed” trees are beautiful. I have always wanted to do one…but just don’t have room but for the one tree and I have too many ornaments that we have collected over the years. We also always add one each year. From the first two that Dh’s aunt bought us for our 1st Christmas together 24 years ago (he was still in the Navy for the actual first one floating around in the Indian Ocean somewhere). One ws a Krackle bar and the other is a Mr Goodbar. Aren’t they cute? Some my Granny made me probably when she was in her 80’s and those I had before we were married. Some my Mom bought me others she also made. One year she bought me a set of ornaments tof snowmen…one for each month of the year. So there is a snowman with bunny ears, one with swimming gear on, another for Halloween. One for mothers day wearing pearls which reminds of my Mom since her name was Pearl. I have a collection of Campbells soup ornaments . Others friends gave or sent to me..from all parts of the world. And then there is probably one of my favorites..I found it years ago when “sock monkeys” weren’t in. My Granny made me a sock monkey when I was a baby ..I think Mom said I wore more than one out. He’s just the cutest..
I want to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas and the Happiest of New Years!!! Thanks for coming and see ya again soon!
