These are some of my best friends, Trudy, Beverly, Marion and JoCarol. The picture was taken about a year ago at JoCarol's house. We were celebrating Suzanne's birthday. I remember laughing 'til my face hurt.
This ornament was my husband's when he was little. His mom gave all of his ornaments to us a few years ago. Between the two of us, we could decorate a whole tree with similar looking elves and Santas. They are so cute and bring back memories of fresh Christmas trees with big colored bulbs and lots of silver icicles. The blinking lights made a tinkling sound that you could only hear when sitting beside the tree in the dark and all alone. I loved that sound - and everything else about Christmas.
I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving. Are you ready for Christmas? The two holidays seem awfully crowded together this year. Hardly time to linger at the table over the turkey. Oh, well, it's all fun and festive.
Enjoy your shopping, cooking, Christmas music, wrapping, the Reason...all the goings on of the season.
I live in Texas with my high school- sweetheart-husband, we have two grown daughters and two sons-in-law and I love, love, love them all. I'm an artist, business-owner, gardener, bird-watcher, I enjoy taking pictures and walks, reading, writing and more...we live in the country (and love it!) with 2 dogs, 2 cats, 3 cows, 10 chickens and there is rarely a dull moment. Happy Day!
