Hi Everyone,
hope you had a safe and happy holiday i am just now getting in from the holiday's from being gone all week. i had a really nice time with my family. everyone made it home safe and sound. yesterday was our family dinner and we had so much fun that i didn't even want anything to eat when it was time to eat. we had been cooking all day long. trying to get everything ready for that afternoon and that just wears you out. the night before my sister got sick and a few others did also, something must have been going around, hope i don't get it. you know how it is when u have been cooking all day and then come time to eat you just don't want anything you really don't want to see any food. so now it is time to get back to things like cleaning the house from the Holiday's i hate that part.but for now i am just going to relax and have a bowl of ice cream. so until next time.

I'm Back

what a wonderful THANKSGIVING weekend, had a really good time. we left here on Friday afternoon the weather was really nice to be traveling the sun was shining just a beautiful day for traveling, stop through Nashville to pick up my sister. then from there we were off to Lexington got there around 10:30 that night. it was about a 4hr drive from Nashville when we got there we unloaded the car and begin preparing for Thanksgiving day we were up till about 4 in the morning getting the food ready. but this is nothing new to us we do this every time we go there we never go to bed until around that time we stay up all night. talking and catching up on all the things that have been going on with family. and then we are up early the next morning.

on thanksgiving day we finished all the little things that need to be finished before everyone got there. they arrive around 4 we ate an then just sat around an watch movies had a few drinks and everyone was gone by 12:30 everyone was tired from the night before so we had an early evening. the next day we just hung around the house. we didn't even go shopping on BLACK FRIDAY didn't want to fight that bad crowd. i didn't need anything that bad. then the next day we heard on the news that i man got trampled on while trying to open the doors to wal-mart. i think that was so sad that anyone would do anything like that, is it really worth it to get kill over a few dollars. i really don't think so. i tell you around the holidays you hear of more deaths and things, it really is a sad time of the year.

that Saturday we got up and headed back to Nashville to take my sister back(spend the night there)and come on home today got home around 4:30 an i am really tired. so now i have to get ready for another work week. but all in all we had a wonderful time, it just flys by really fast. hope all of you had just as a good of a time as i did.

Lazy Day

Today is just one lazy day for me, just want to set around an do nothing all day it is still very cold out. last night a few friends came over and we started on our Christmas cards we got a few done we could have gotten much more done but we were having to much fun laughing and talking about other things. also found out that our Micheal's craft store burned yesterday. not it didn't burn to the ground, they seem to think it was electrical(from all them lights that they have) LOL, so i don't know when they will reopen, there goes all those coupons. you could really tell it today too. when i went to hobby lobby you could not move, i have never seen so many people in one store in all my life they were just running over each other. the lady said that it has been that way all day long. this was in the evening when i went so i can just amazing what it was like this morning. so hopefully it will open back soon. so i am just sitting here watching a movie .i could be working on some more cards but i think i will give it a rest.

brrrrrrrr it's cold outside

Happy Monday everybody hope you had good start to the week. unlike me everything that could go wrong did go wrong. anyway it is mighty COLD outside. i think the time has come for us to crank up the heat. and get some of that good old vegetable soup that your parents used to make when we were kids i still to this day make it when it gets cold out. i have been loving the weather that we have been having but today was a different story, because it is now time to bring out the coats,hats, and gloves and put away the summer clothing and try to keep warm. i can't believe that halloween is this friday. all the trick or treaters will be out and about. and it is going to be a Cold one man how the time has flown just a couple of months before Christmas i am still working on getting my christmas cards done i should have them all done by the end of next month i have a few already. i worked on some this weekend so hopeful i will have them all done by next month. and get them ready to be mailed out. willl post pictures later on. i plan on selling some of them also. until next time everyone have a good rest of the week and stay warm!!!
