A new KID....

Well the holidays are behind us now, and just when you think that the magic of the holiday has left.... NEW LIFE arrives in the form of a beautiful baby.... goat, yes I said goat.....But will be calling her, Bella.... A wonderful gift from God, to me... Thank you, Lord!!! Just what I wanted a girl!!!
My little Bella had a twin that didn't make it, and I am very saddened by this, but very humbled with the gift that was given to me....Welcome to the world Bella!!
Now on to other things....while reading Blogs today i have noticed that alot of you are putting away and packing up the tree.... not me, I think I will be leaving mine out a little longer this year, it just looks so nice this year and I love the glow it gives off in the evening, making the living room look so warm and inviting. I love the glow of a Christmas tree, don't you?
On Christmas eve my DH and I made sugar cookies and decorated them together.... this was the first year he has helped... willingly ...the cooled cookies awaiting icing...

My DH creations.....
And mine....
We had a lot of fun doing this together, and we might just give it a whirl again next year...We made gifts this year for my 2 sister in laws, my DH's sisters. I did the stitch and DH made the frames.... I think we make a pretty good team in the crafting area... Thank you DH for all your help....I think I might have some ideas for next Christmas already, we will see.
Well I better get off the computer and go finish my laundry. Hope everyone has a wonderful evening

Early Christmas gift

It started snowing Friday nite, and I got in the "snack mood" so I made Chex mix, Homemade cracker jacks, a recipe I got from... and Brownies.... after that we went to my In Laws to play Rook, its a card game... we had a great time. It snowed all day Saturday, and we spent the day lying around, not doing much of anything... on to Sunday, we stayed home from church, most of the churches in our area cancelled, ours did not but it is 20 minutes from our home and we decided that since the temp was below freezing, that we had better stay in... so we decided to make each other feel better by gifting one gift to each other, an early Christmas gift.... i got a Wii......
and I got my DH a video making program that he wanted....

All in all you could say we were both pretty happy.... after watching some football, we played Wii till we were sore... but we had a great bonding time together, and don't we all need to bond with our spouses while parents will be here Sunday after Christmas and I can not wait to see them play!! I'll take pictures of that.... well hope everyone has a great day... God Bless!!

Christmas Dishes

Does the thought of New Dishes make you happy?? Well it does me!! I have been looking for the "right" Christmas dishes for 11 years and this was the year, all my waiting and patience paid off... I am in love with the dishes I found at Target.... And a special thanks to my brother and SIL for helping make it possible for me to have service for 8... my local Target did not have enough, but thankfully the Target in Pittsburg had the pieces I was missing. So my wonderful brother and SIL went and got them for me. Thank you Tony and Kate... I love you both VERY much!!
