Merry Christmas to all of my Friends!!!

  I want to wish all of my blogger friends a very Merry Christmas!!! And I hope we all stop and realize the true meaning of Christmas. Let us all rem. a person who is alone this Christmas ,the homeless, our service men and woman,  those less fortunate than us, and our friends that have lost loved ones this past year .Christmas can be a lonely time for many people.

  Some of my best Christmas memories was at church when I was a little girl. We would go Christmas Caroling and would fix up goodies boxes of cookies, candy and fruit and take to shut in's.
  Then we would have a Christmas program at church, put on by the children and youth. We would practice and practice, you would think it was some sort of Broadway production.
  We would always have a nativity scene and would celebrate Jesus' births.

  There were 5 children in my family, mom would bake and bake, we sure had alot of special baked goodies.
We would usually receive one toy and a flannel night gown, us sisters would priss around like a bunch of princesses in our new nightgowns. And my brother the King in his new PJ's.
   Daddy would string up one string of lights over our front porch, we would go out to the end of our lane and awe over the specticular display of lights. He He We were up and down all night long looking to see if Santa had arrived!!

   You will get a laugh out of this but we had lots of animals since we lived on a farm. us kids would go out on Christmas Eve. and sing songs to the animals. They actually would be quiet and look at us. (Probably half scared to death). He He

   But I do want to take this time to wish all my blogger friend a Merry Christmas, and am so thankful that you are a part of my life. And may each of us  take time to remember that Christmas is Jesus' Birthday!!!

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
