Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Ahhh first snow. Just a tad. But it was a surprise this morning. It was really the best kind of snow. On the grass, but not the sidewalk or road.

Christmas has many faces;

This beautiful picture of our neighbor's front yard. Almost makes you think of a Christmas card doesn't it?


the pile beginning to accumulate in the front room. I have a confession to make, I am a dyed in the wool internet shopper. I save gas, time, aggravation and usually money as well. And the biggest advantage, I do it in my pajamas. So as I said, it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here. We just returned from out of town last night, so I need to get out my Advent wreath. Our tree will arrive in a couple of weeks. (Yes I order it as well.)

We went to our #2 daughter's home for Thanksgiving this year. If everyone is not careful, I could get wayyyyyyyy used to sitting in a chair and stitching while the kids make dinner for a holiday! We had a wonderful time, everyone was there. DD did a great job with minimal intervention from her mother. Older daughter did desserts, boys did the multiple runs to the store and baby sister helped clean up. You just couldn't beat it.

What mother doesn't like the look of her kids in the kitchen cleaning up after dinner? And smiling while they do it. Notice that brother isn't washing, drying or wearing an apron. He gets away with it every time! Unless you tell him he has to help clear the table before the Texas vs Texas A&M game. Then he can sling some dishes in record time!

I hope your holiday was wonderful. I didn't get a chance to wish everyone a wonderful holiday. Hope it was warm and blissful as you took a moment to reflect on what you are thankful for. I know mine was. And what am I thankful for? Well those smiling faces above are a big part of it.


  1. oh my god, oh my god, oh my god
    I can't get over the picture of dad with the pink paper crown on.
    That is fabulous.
    What would the Project Runway chicks have to say about that?

  2. Did you have anything to do with the birth of that boy? It appears as if it was a cloning.

  3. What an awesome picture of your kids!!! I would have that blown up, framed, and in several places in my house. Good lookin' kids, Ms. Martha! Glad you had a fabulous Thanksgiving.

  4. Thanks everyone.

    AD don't raz your dad! He was intent on teaching SIL how to do that turkey. I didn't even see the crown until after I took the picture. Everyone loves the crackers though.

    Robin all I was for that boy was rental property. He is a clone, just taller.

    Thanks Kelley, I think they are pretty good looking too.
