I gotta say I'm always so Thankful for my blog friends. So many kindred spirits that you truly never would have met without the internet brought together in a very special community. Always there for the fun, chit chat, visits and if you need a hug in the bad times. I am so grateful to have such wonderful people to call friends.  I'm always surprised at the mailbox for the holidays so many surprises..smile... Here are a few
Sweet Santa Ornie from Danice Homespun Hannahs Blog.. She is always so very thoughtful..  Lots of cards letting me know I'm thought of makes the holidays even brighter. Many more have arrived since the picture..
My swap with Francine http://primitivestars.blogspot.com/   All wrapped so pretty...
Santa, Ornies, yummy chocolate. She also included some potpourri and cocoa.  Thank you so much for everything Francine. You have always been such a very sweet friend and I'm very glad you took the leap into blogging so I can visit with you daily...

Bah Humbug!

No not really. But time is flying by so fast. Life has been very busy here and I haven't had much time for enjoying the season.It doesn't feel much like Christmas yet for me.I've promised myself starting Sunday no more rushing around or worrying about everything that can really wait.Just settling down and getting in the spirit of Christmas.Grandma has said no more special Christmas sugar cookies so I'm officially making them this year. Had to giggle when she called with the recipe. She told me the oven temp 375- 400  Hmmm Ok. Then she said 5- 10 minutes just watch them the whole time so they don't burn. I said I'll just put it at 385 for 6 minutes. and go from there. LoL.. Well I did get my decorating done so I'll start sharing some pics of that and have some other things to post soon.Warm Blessings!~Amy
