Merry Christmas My Friends

I think I'm ready...

Pillow and plaid blanket inspired by sweet Robin of Happy at Home

Beautiful gift and handmade card from Alayne... thank you for your friendship Alayne, that is the best gift.

We are ready for our dinner tomorrow with 
Greg, Maranetta, Naomi and Jonathan,
my son and his dear family.
I love them so much.

The living room is ready.

The kitchen is ready.
Did you see my "new to me" little Santa mug?
And the little wool wreath?
Thank you Jackie, I love you!
And there is sweet Ana and her family photo card.

Christmas Eve!

Are you ready?

"Jesus is not just the Reason for the Christmas Season, He is the Reason for Living".

May God bless and keep you, your family and your friends, as you travel to be together at Christmas time.

Merry Christmas!!!

Good morning at 8:22 a.m. on Guam where America's Christmas begins! It's a gorgeous day and I can hear the ocean roaring outside along the beach. We're going to breakfast here at the hotel and then dinner at another local hotel's buffet we love.

Yes, we're ready to celebrate all day long the birthday of our Savior who robed Himself as a man and came to earth to die for all of my ugly sins.

Thank You, Jesus,

M E R R Y C H R I S T M A S!

I'm late but I hope you had a wonderful Christmas Cindy. You have such sweet vintage things in your home. I love the way you decorate it. We had a busy two days and lots of snow to make it a white Christmas. Thankful we didn't lose our power.
