JC Kid's choir Christmas program

My grandson's TJ & Tyler's Christmas program at church....they were each a different Christmas tree ornament TJ my oldest he was the Polar Express train conductor & that is a real conductor's hat he's wearing and Tyler he was a race car driver. The following pictures show Tyler with the hanger on his head falling down because of a little help from him playing with it and TJ was saying "All aboard" in his picture. The pure innocence of children....God Bless them all!

Fun times w/grandson's

We had a fun filled weekend with our grandson's, first both set's of Mamaw's & Papaw's took them to see Santa and out to dinner on Friday then just the papaw's and daddy took them on a train ride with of course Santa on board on Sat. ....they had so much fun our oldest one TJ he loves diesel & steam engine trains so he was thrilled beyond words and Tyler the youngest liked Santa best... don't know how much longer they will want to go with us to see Santa so we're trying to keep in going as long as possible we had a few snow flakes today.....I want snow for Christmas then it can stay away, well enjoy those little one's they sure grow up fast!

Now it's..wait..wait.. wait

Well, I got at the inside decorating yesterday took me all day cause I really wasn't in the mood to do it but now it's done and it feels good... and the grandson's are happy that's what it's all about anyway's to see their little faces all lit up like the christmas tree so here is our fireplace mantle we're real country so that's how I decorate stuffed deer, moose, and snowmen no glitz & glitter for this country gal but I love to see other's who do it. Our tree looks like it just came out of the forest all covered with snow and the real reason for the season...baby Jesus lying in the manger, then a little table with grandson's and both set's of mamaw's & papaw's pictures taken every year when we go see the man himself "Santa claus" so that's pretty much it for my decoration's not alot but just enough so here's wishing all my friends & their families "Merry Christmas & a Wonderful New Year"

Looking alot like Christmas

Well since it's now the Christmas season I've changed my background & header picture.....I love the reindeer background I found at http://www.thecutestblogontheblock.com/ and the header picture is from our front yard....DH & I decorated this past Sunday after church since it was such a beautiful fairly warm day...we usually wait till it's cold & snowy before we do it but, got smart finally and did it when the weather cooperated with the mood so last night I went outside and took alot of pictures and put a collage together and made it my header picture. I love using the photo's I've taken to decorate with I hardly have any pictures on my walls that I've bought they are all photograph's taken of family, vacation's or whatever just seems so much homier to me well enough rambling on, think I'll start my inside decorating today so stay tuned for indoor pictures soon till then stay warm, hug someone you love and beeeeeeeeee happy!

Thankful for you!

To all my blogging friends I wish you & yours a very Happy & Blessed Thanksgiving Psalm 100
A psalm. For giving thanks. 1 Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth.
2 Worship the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.
3 Know that the LORD is God. It is he who made us, and we are his [a] ; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.
5 For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.

Teapot pincushion

Well it's been awhile since I've posted anything I've made we've had company for the past week our best friends were here visiting from Fl. and left this a.m. to head home....sure hated to see them leave "Life is nothing without friendship" by CICERO! Well anyway we did a little shopping (little) hehe while they were here and I found the cutest pattern among other's of course for pincushion's so here is my "Teapot" pincushion I just finished making. The base is an old wooden spool of thread I found at an antique shop soooooooooo cute & simple.....love simple once in awhile don't you? I have some other things will take picture's and post soon until then......

Isn't this neat

Here is my name made from things I found outside and in my house......

I seen photographs of letters of the alphabet made from outside objects yesterday at a craft store I went to and thought this is just the neatest thing, so today it was so beautiful outside I took my camera and started looking for letters myself....it is so amazing what letters you can find in trees, on building's, inside your homes....all you have to do is look. I found each letter of the alphabet except for J, R, & Q but I am determined I will find them somewhere. So go have some fun get your kid's, DH or just yourself and see what you can find leave me a comment if you find some and you publish it.

Sad day!
