OK… is over…..


We had a wonderful Christmas!  The guys bought their Dad a new TV….

2014-12-24 21.31.06

Can you believe it?????

So Bryan and Wayne spent the rest of the evening getting rid of the dinosaur and all of the non essential components it took to run it!

2014-12-24 21.38.50

The new TV is  amazing, I don’t know how to explain the picture quality except it feels like “live” TV…just unreal….

The guys got their stockings with all of the items they might use, not fun anymore but they appreciate it….lol

I received a box from Cath Kidston and waited to to pen it until Christmas Eve….

2014-12-27 16.30.20

2 red mugs, 2 white, and some wrapping paper I will hold onto…

2014-12-27 16.30.27

Her graphics make me crazy all the time but at Christmas I just have to do it…I have to buy some items….I think it has become a Christmas tradition! lol

2014-12-27 16.30.57

and I adore her candles…..

2014-12-27 16.31.05

I have some adorable holders for these…..

Here is Miss Bailey on Christmas Eve….

And Miss Abbey girl…..with my son Chris….

2014-12-24 19.25.59

We opened gifts on Christmas Eve, Chris was suppose to work but once he got there he was allowed to go home they didn’t need as many as volunteered ….a really nice surprise.

For Christmas Day….we had a small turkey and some of the sides…it was nice, just really nice…

2014-12-25 14.00.29

I have to say I enjoyed this Christmas more than I have any in a long time….it was wonderful, quiet and worth the time it took to make it nice!

Santa came again!!!!


$_57 (19)

Santa has been wonderful to me this year….his elves came at least 3 times already!  Santa himself brought this….


After 40 years of cooking I was able to pick out a KitchenAid 5 quart mixer!  This is called Majestic Yellow…surprised it isn’t red?  Not everything needs to be red, right?  I can add red cherries to it! :)


This gal is on Etsy….HensinDaisies


Here is a photo in my kitchen, as you can see we are getting ready to use this……the color wouldn’t come out right….

2014-12-21 15.25.06

It looks like it is two colors but it is not….

I also got a chance to go thrifting for about an hour yesterday while I waited to pick up Wayne from work…he has a big Goodwill right next door… was a blast…and they had so many vintage glass ornies!

2014-12-21 09.29.37

There is a 97 cent Sprouse Reitz sticker on this box…gives you an idea how old they are…I paid 99 cents!

All of these goodies were only 9.00…..I didn’t think that was bad…I am starting to collect the ornaments for a new wreath, mine got accidently crunched…:(  There are about 55 ornaments here….

I also got a smokin’ deal at Kohls on 8 placemats and two runners for Christmas….the runners are the same quilted fabric.

2014-12-21 09.33.51

what is cool, is ….this is the backs…I can use these all year. :)

2014-12-21 09.34.27

I got the 8 placemats for 1.68 each and the runners for a little over 3.00 each.  One placemat was originally 7.99!  Of course, who would pay that?  But I love a good deal!!!

I also found some boxes never opened from JC Penny’s from last year after Christmas, they had decorated bottle brush trees in three sizes…here are a couple of photos, I put them with my Santa blow molds…..I love shopping my storage room! lol

Love this Santa he is hard plastic…but with a light.

Well, better go get busy reading the book that came with the mixer, we have Spritz cookie to make tonight…:) 

Thanks for stoppin’ by…..
