Our Christmas Blessing Is Coming!!!

Monday, November 29, 2010

I hated teasing you but I couldn't share the news until it was official. We will have the GREAT pleasure of having PepperLeah and her husband (the Pepper part of PepperLeah) will be joining us for the holidays! They'll be here for both Christmas and New Year's. Yay!!! We've visited them in Florida a couple of times and had SUCH a great time with them. We can't wait to have them here with us at this most precious time of year. This will be the first time in three years that Bill is home for the holidays. He works so hard and sacrifices so much for our family. I want this to be a fun time, filled with laughter and friendship for him. I know it will be wonderful!! So the suspense is over. We will be having new additions to the family but not like some of you thought. lol Love y'all!!!

Christmas blessings are on the way!

Thursday, November 25, 2010

Already we're hearing tell of GREAT joys for Christmas and I can't WAIT! I don't want to spill the beans too soon, but soon as I can tell you, I will. (Lou, mum's the word. lol) My heart is already overflowing with excitement! God is doing GREAT on our behalf! Y'all know me. I'm a traditional person, old-fashioned (okay, just plain old). When it comes to Christmas music, though, NOTHING kicks off my Christmas season faster than this and I had to share it with you. It had my toes tapping and my hiney dancing in my chair this evening. I'm ready to celebrate Christ!!!

    Let's see, the only two things I can think of to spark such excitement are either an impending wedding or a baby expected!

Old, ha, I suspect I am older, and I am definitely old-fashioned.

Sunday, November 21, 2010

I've received such awesome links on FaceBook today that I had to share some with you. By the way, if you haven't connected with me on FaceBook, please do! I have come to love it. I've reconnected with SO many old friends. It's awesome!

The first link is from my dear Ms. Rosalie, a Thanksgiving keeper for sure! LOL

Late Veterans Tribute by (of all people) Kiss!

This was such an awesome film clip. Naturally, big ninnybaby that I am, I cried right through it. lol I hope you enjoy it!!

As an afterthought, I just had to show you my pretty Miss Molly again. She has acclimated SO well, especially having been a rescue project.



She even loves her scratching post!



But she doesn't have a long attention span. lol

Are y'all sick of me, yet? lol What can I say, I'm a proud grandmama! My oldest, Chelle, and her beau, Josh, just adopted this little sweetheart. (Thanks, Laurie!) She looks like she has shepherd and dobie and maybe a bit of rotty. I'm not sure but she's 100% adorable!

This is Laika! (TADA!!!)
