{It's About To Be Christmas Y'all!}


Isn't this just the sweetest picture ever? My daughter snapped this of her two girls right after they put up their tree and it just melted this Nana's heart. 

I hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We surely did. As always we have such a big gathering with Marty's family at my Fatherinlove's home each year. Lots of food but most importantly, a sweet time of fellowship. 


The day after Thanksgiving me and my two youngest daughters with three of the grandgirls hit the Black Friday Shopping. My oldest daughter and her family took a trip to Universal in Orlando, Fl. so she wasn't with us. Honestly, the crowds weren't as bad as I had anticipated. The lines were a little long but hey...what do we expect when we go out Black Friday shopping, right? 


Of course, we ended our day with Starbucks and that makes everything okay in my book!


Most of you know that I LOVE my little corner chair in my dining room and use it for so many different things. This year a small Christmas tree went in that corner.

  


I love anything red and black and not just because I am a Georgia Bulldog fan but I just love those colors. Add some buffalo print to the mix and I am a happy girl! 


Matter of fact I used that tree for a few pictures of the grands for Christmas. This is my most favorite picture. 

 






I took so many adorable pictures of my precious grandbabies and we had a great time. Be glad I just showed you a few! LOL! 
 

So very true my friends are those words! 

I hope that you all are enjoying decorating for the holidays, baking, wrapping gifts and singing Christmas Carols. Christmas is surely upon us, isn't it? My daughters helped me decorate the week before Thanksgiving and see here....I was a happy camper! It seems that it takes me all day too do what it used to take 3 hours to do. Praise the Lord for daughters!

I will be in New York next week with my three daughters and three oldest granddaughters. I've never been to New York so I am quite sure I will be just like Buddy the Elf! LOL!  Pray for our safety if you think about it and for a grand time. Weather is supposed to be much BETTER than what I have been reading! And I have prayed big so I am counting on it!

Hugs and blessings, Cindy

    1. Thanks Bonnie. We had fun snapping a few pictures of the kiddos. Girl, I have comfy boots but someone else told me to get some of those gel inserts for my shoes and I think I will. I always carry a mini first aide kit with me EVERYWHERE! LOL!

  4. LOVE the photos of the kids. So, so cute Cindy. Love your red and black buffalo print tree too. YES! That first picture is precious. I went shopping on Saturday but it was rather crowded even the day after Black Friday. My favorite part was ending our day with Cracker Barrel dessert and coffee.

  9. You will love NYC even if it's cold and rainy. My first time in New York was late March and it snowed on our first morning. It made the day magical.

  12. Enjoy your trip, Cindy! I absolutely loved seeing the beautiful photos. God has richly blessed you, my friend. The quote at the end is so very true. As we get older, we realize that Christmas is not about "things" at all, but it is sweet devotion and remembrance of our dear Lord Jesus and it is the time spent with our precious loved ones. Those two things are all that really matter at all.

  13. Oh, I love all of your pictures! You’e Not only are you a great Nana but you’re a fantastic photographer! Those of your grands are just precious!! ❤️ Your Christmas tree in your dining room is so pretty. I’ve got my tree in the great room up and need to hang our stockings this week. Our tree passed the “Jack test” so I’ll give the stockings on the railing a try! 😉. Enjoy your trip! We’ve been to NYC once when the kids were in middle school/high school and really had fun! I’ll keep you in my prayers, though. Enjoy your week, dear lady!

  16. Love the Buffalo plaid-themed tree! Your grandkids' Christmas photos look adorable and professionally done!

    I'm not a big fan of crowd so I tend to stay away from the Black Friday or Boxing Day sales. I must confess that I did do some online shopping...

    1. Thank you Margie. I do lots of online shopping. So much easier! I like to Christmas shop when I truly do not have anything I really need to be looking for. I love browsing.

  17. Your Christmas photos are all so very beautiful!
    Your little corner chair looks so pretty as always.I can see why you enjoy it so much.

    New York...I have never been, but it is one of my mother's favorite states to visit.
    When she owned her toy store in Vail she would go to the toy fair to do her purchasing for the store.
    Have a wonderful time!
