Are you thinking about Christmas??

  Wow, can you believe how fast this year is going. Thanksgiving is next week already. I love Thanksgiving

that is kinda like my families Christmas, since we all can't get together at Christmas, so I am getting excited.

  Last weekend my husband and I kept our grandchildren Cole and Riley we had so much fun

with them. We played games and  they made me Christmas lists.  My other little grandson Jake

came a couple days later and saw their lists hanging on the refridgerator. He wanted to make one too,

well every page of the toy catalog was cut up practically so I had to get another toy book for him.

 So when he comes here again we will make his list. My son also brought him

to our house trick or treating last week, since he was away

on Halloween, the cutest bat you ever saw!!!!

  I made a snowman and santa set yesterday,

I will post a picture, I want to decorate with alot of greenery from outside this year. (So

I just put them in a pan with some cedar).

   Our church participated in operation Christmas child and collected boxes on Sunday.

They have to be mailed early so they can arrive to the different countries by Christmas.

That is one of my favorite things to do at Christmas. I would love to see those little faces

when they open their boxes. It is such a warm feeling, that is the true meaning of what Christmas is about.







Cole also has the back page filled up, and I also put a huge amount of pictures in an envelope for him to take home and make Santa a list. he he

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.
