  Hi Eleni........
I love your trees. Elizabeth and I trimmed ours last night, but ran out of time, so I will have to finish today.
Roxy looks less than pleased............I know our dogs would roll on the floor till it came off!!!
Have a great day. It is 52 degrees in Wisconsin on December 4th. That doesn't happen often.

    Things are looking jolly at your house. It was likely good for Angel and Brianna to trim things up for you. My pooch won't wear a hat.

    Both of your trees are beautiful Eleni, wow!
And I got a giggle out of Roxy wearing a Santa hat . . . our dog looks sad when we put her Santa hat on her, lol. She hats hats and clothes so I pretty well stick to just jackets for her now.
Thanks for sharing the photos of your trees, they are really festive!

  Hi Eleni........
Tyler looks a bit apprehensive about Santa. When Elizabeth was 2, her folks took her to see Santa, and when they sat her on his lap, she just shrieked. Poor Santa!!!

Loved your other pictures too, especially the little Prairie Dogs. We ALWAYS have a Charlie Brown tree because Ken feels sorry for the worst tree in the lot. I have gotten used to it.

Have a great week.

I am feeling better today and working on Christmas Cards.If I don't have your address and you would like to exchange cards send me spark mail.
Thanks to Cookie,Gloria and Elaine for the cards you sent.
Bill and I both thought it neat to see an envelope that said Royal mail.
I am feeling better physicallly but not as great mentally.

My neice from my 1st marraige lost her battle with cancer yesterday. Very sweet beautiful lovely woman. She was born 3 months after my oldest son.We have not had much contact in last 30 years but she reached out to me by facebook a few weeks ago. It was so sad to lose the opportunity to get to know her better. I spoke with her husband,sister and her mother today. Not easy.As a mother that has lost a child it brings back memories for me. Their whole family are very religous and that is helping them.
Angel is a mess over ex that dumped her 2nd time. Brianna is also heart broke.
Youngest daughter is fighting with school system over treatment of my grand daughter.
My neice almost had words with my neice that works with her over words she said.
Son in Ohio is atill having problem with his meds.
and it goes on and on.
On bright side.Bill only has 6 to 8 days to work and then he will be completely retired. Need to get started on his honey do list. Have a good day my friends

    Congratulations to you and Bill on his pending full time retirement. I am able to go but haven't listened to the call.
Life is one struggle after another. If we weren't striving we would be dead. So I'll take the striving.

    This has been a hard week. One bright spot was receiving a Christmas Card from you. Thanks you so much for your ray of holiday sunshine.
Hope next week is better. At least preparing a honey-do list will be fun! Especially since you know your Honey Will Do whatever you ask!

  Hi Eleni.......
I am so sorry about your niece. It is good that you had contact toward the end. I am sure that she appreciated you.
KIDS..........The old saying: "If it weren't for bad luck we wouldn't have any luck at all." comes to mind. They can drive us crazy one minute but the next we don't know what we would do without them. This too shall pass. It's just that it seems to all come at once!!!
You will love having Bill home. Ken had a few extra minutes today and used them to build Elizabeth a bed for her dolls. I have a canopy and other bedding, but need to make a mattress before Christmas.
Your Christmas Card should be in the mail early next week.
Have a great weekend.

    I am so glad your niece got in touch with you .. but so sorry for your loss .
There always seems to be trouble of some sort of another in families.
Mine are no exception .
Glad you are feeling better and as for the mental part here is a emoticon that fits the bill.
emoticon emoticon emoticon

I have a philosophy .
Kids will do what they want whether we like it or not.
So they need to be responsible for their own actions .
If we were not here they would have to sort it out .
So why are we worrying ourselves to death???

Do feel a little better. Watching "Mrs.Henderson Presents.Funny so far.
My sweet Brianna got her heart broke today. Called me to cheer her up.Her boyfriend broke up with her. She is such a sweet girl.
Another sparker emailed me the following and I thought it was so cute.

1. HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHO TO MARRY? (written by kids)

-You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff. Like, if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should keep the chips and dip coming.
-- Alan, age 10

-No person really decides before they grow up who they're going to marry. God decides it all way before, and you get to find out later who you're stuck with.
-- Kristen, age 10

Twenty-three is the best age because you know the person FOREVER by then.
-- Camille, age 10

You might have to guess, based on whether they seem to be yelling at the same kids.
-- Derrick, age 8

Both don't want any more kids.
-- Lori, age 8

-Dates are for having fun, and people should use them to get to know each other. Even boys have something to say if you listen long enough.
-- Lynnette, age 8 (isn't she a treasure)

-On the first date, they just tell each other lies and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date.
-- Martin, age 10

-When they're rich.
-- Pam, age 7

-The law says you have to be eighteen, so I wouldn't want to mess with that.
- - Curt, age 7

-The rule goes like this: If you kiss someone, then you should marry them and have kids with them. It's the right thing to do.
- - Howard, age 8

It's better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need someone to clean up after them.
-- Anita, age 9 (bless you child )

There sure would be a lot of kids to explain, wouldn't there?
-- Kelvin, age 8

And the #1 Favorite is.......

Tell your wife that she looks pretty, even if she looks like a dump truck. -- Ricky, age 10

  Hi Eleni......
I can't imagine ANYONE breaking up with Brianna. She is so beautiful and so sweet that the right guy will come along soon and he will be the one who deserves her. This guy just wasn't the right one.
Loved your email.
