I feel like it's been forever since we've chatted. I have been so busy over the last couple of weeks, helping out with grandbabies, working part time, trying to do a little Christmas, and well, life is just busy right now. Anyone else there?
Grandbabies sure makes life a whole lot sweeter. Those of you that have grands I can hear you saying AMEN!
Seems time caught up with me quick this holiday season. I did manage with the help of my oldest granddaughter Raygen to get my kitchen and living room decorated for Christmas. There is an advantage to having older grands. LOL!
I didn't decorate as much this year as I usually do but good enough for me.
My granny's dishes got a touch of red this season added to them.
I love my centerpiece for my dining room table. You can't see but very little but the Dough bowl holding my centerpiece was given to me by my granny and her daddy, my great-grandfather actually carved the bread bowl.
I am really enjoying my snowflake dessert dishes this season.
And I have lost count on how many Santa's I have here and there. My daughter's think I am obsessed with him. LOL! I do love me a Santa though.
This is our youngest granddaughter. Even though this isn't a good quality picture I just love it. This was at my daughter's house and she had already told me that Adalynn wasn't allowed to touch her ornaments on the Christmas tree. WELL....SEE WHAT HAD HAPPENED WAS.................
She just wanted to experience the magic of Christmas....RIGHT? I love being a Nana....I get by with lots!
Matter of fact that little grandgirl helped me with a lot....
Notice how Santa's head is a cocked to one side? Well, she only wanted to have a tea party with Nana....LOL!
It was nothing that we couldn't fix.
But we did have a tea party....
Who could say no to this sweet girl?
She loved putting ornaments on the tree too. I found several just stuck in the tree.
The last thing to go up this year was my tree. It is usually the first thing to go up but for a few years now I have been wanting a skinny Christmas tree. I think the proper wording is pencil tree. I love my Christmas tree's that I have and I say tree's because I have two full size trees and several 4ft white and 4 ft green trees. But this year I wanted something a little different. Do you ever get that way?
My daughter Melissa ordered me a skinny tree and when it arrived and we put it together which was only three pieces my first thoughts were, "I AIN'T LIKING THE NEW TREE". But, as my sweet man said, "Cindy, I have never seen a pretty Christmas tree to be honest until it's decorated! TRUE!
I absolutely love my skinny tree and so glad that I have it now.
Don't you just love my newest ornament? My daughter Melissa and granddaughter Mallory brought it back for me from New York. And, it just happens to be my WORD for 2017 that the Lord gave me to focus on.
I want to thank you all for being such sweet blogging buddies this year. Though I only have time to blog once a week and here lately that has been a hit and a miss but I sure enjoy you ladies. I hope that you all have a very Merry Christmas. May we be so sweetly reminded that without Christ there would be no CHRISTmas. He is indeed the REASON FOR THE SEASON.
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
