THANKS! Feel free to pass this along to your own prayer group, church, school, etc. Let's see if we can have the cards coming in big postal bags for her this Christmas, since it will be her last holiday.

This is a pic of my granddaddy and grandma and all his grandchildren. He is such an amazing man. Talk about the true southern gentleman! He owned his own furniture company which made the most beautiful handcrafted pieces. He is a collector of musical instruments and actually has quite a few in museums. Some of the pieces he has are 100s of years old. My best memories are of going to his house and hearing him talk about and play all of the instruments. Sadly he is not doing well this year and we are all praying that we get to keep him til after the holidays.
I finally got around to decorating for Christmas. I am WAY behind this year. I usually do it the day after Thanksgiving. I made the stockings 2 years ago and added little Eans last year. If you click on the pic you will see that I embroidered our initials on them. When we had our 2nd son, our first pointed out that our names were the alphabet.....Austin, Brogan, Christina and Daryl. So of course with the 3rd we had to continue that, thus Ean got his name. And yes if we have more we will keep going...lol!
this Christmas has me feeling more nostalgic. Maybe its the impending loss of my grandaddy or just how fast time flies. I find that the older I get the more appreciative I get of traits that I can claim I got from my ancestors.
I also love painting. I think I get that from my dad. I remember when I was younger he would always have these elaborate pencils pictures that he had colored. I still have one that I would love to get framed some day. This is a snowman painting that I did a few years ago. I absolutely love how it turned out. The stars were aligned that night!

I glittered a ton of little white pumpkins and lined the fireplace mantle with them and white lights.
These are (obviously ) the table centerpieces. I used double stick tape on the votive's and wrapped corn husks around them. I also used more little glitter pumpkins.
and this was their party favors. I made 90 caramel apples. Yep...me....alone...all day!!!! My pic is crappy but the card says " Amy & Joe The apple of each others eye! " I'm glad the day is done now I can sleep!
It was a hit with Ean.
We were one boy short (he was with his friends) but it was a wonderful family day!

I brought her home and gave her some TLC. I ripped out the old shelving and replaced the UGLY white handles with prettier ones.
this was the shelving......UGH!
I organized all my tools and put all my odds and ends in jars. I even hung up my embroidery hoops on the other side.
I hope I can keep it looking this way!
I'm sure my husband hopes so too :)

I am totally in love with this bag. From the colors to all the pockets (there are 7) it screams my name. I felt like the seagulls from Nemo when I was sewing this......mine,mine,mine,mine,mine.......lol!
