Merry Christmas!

A very Merry Christmas. I pray for safety for everyone who is traveling. I pray you find happiness in your life and peace and joy as we celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

And praises sing to God our King

Christmas is the Time to Say I Love You!

I posted this video from MTV last year (06 & 07) and I thought I would do so again. I've always liked this clip from MTV. Back when MTV was worth watching and was "music" tv. We don't watch anymore. My family thinks I'm silly but I just shake my head and watch it anyway. I like it. My friend Debbie is the only one who agrees with me! It's cute and fun! So please enjoy it with me!

When this video came out in the 80's I was a young stay at home mother with one then two small children at home. How things change over the years. Since then we had a third child and she is the only one still at home. I work full time and I'm a grandma. We have been blessed!

Just had to share this video. The group is called Il Divo. I saw the advertisement for their CD on TV and looked them up on the Internet. This is one of my favorite hymns. They do an excellent job. The bagpipes are great!

A crazy day!

Yesterday was my birthday! Thanks to everyone who called and emailed birthday wishes!

Paul gave me this! Thanks honey!!

I bought this for myself with my birthday money!

The day started out crazy as we had to take Lori to the emergency room in the middle of the night. We went at midnight and got home again at 5 am. I went to work at 11 am after getting a few hours sleep. She's is okay! Couple of problems but she is feeling much better today!

Paul took this of me as I was trying to follow him in the snow. We had walked down to my my office and he came to help me shovel the snow.

Buddy came along to help!

Drinks for the weary.

For My Daughter's!

Doesn't she look nice now that her daughter is old enough to tell her just what to wear?
