Happy First Day Of Winter

December 21, 2013

Wow, just four more days and it will be Christmas Day.  I know I say it a lot, but where has this year gone?   It seems like once we get to the middle of Spring time, the rest of the year is in a hurry to get to Winter.  And, today is officially the first day of Winter.  Gosh, it could have fooled me.  I thought it started about a month ago. 

Today is really a lovely day outside here.  Sunny and warm, around 54F.  We will have a couple more days of these warmer temps, and then it will get cold again for Christmas.  I'm not complaining though, I'll take all the warms days I can. 

I have a couple photos of Christmas cards from years past to share this morning.  I've erased the name out of one of the photos for privacy reasons.  These two cards were made by my daughter Deanne.  I love home made cards.  These two wonderful kids are teenagers now. 

Now I think I'll wrap presents for a while, (I still have some last minute wrapping to do)  and then I'll rustle up some lunch for us.  After that, Pogo and I will have us a little nap.  Tonight is a work night for me. 

So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a wonderful day.

Hugs, Edna B.

It seems that you have many presents. You must shop for many people. I hope your aches and pains are better. I hope in the new year you will be able to rest more.
Thanks for explain about the dwarfs. I thought maybe you had fairies or something, hah.
I will eventually answer that email.
I love the second picture. I love photo cards.
Have a wonderful Christmas. Stay well and hope the weather cooperates. It is raining cats and dogs here right now. Supposed to get 5 inches. Yuck. I want my snow back. (((((HUGS))))

O my, catching up on a week of posting with you makes me so do so much...I think I am busy, but not as busy as you are! Guess that is what keeps you so young! Love to read all your posts and see all the wonderful photos and see how Kyra makes them into such lovely scrap pages! Pogo is so very cute, cute, cute! He is one loved little man! glad you are having a break from the snow, we have had a really cold rain all during the night and is just now beginning to drift out of our area, but at least this time, we stayed above freezing.
Well, off to read a few more blogs, catch you again soon!
Have a beautiful CHRISTmas!
Hugs, Mat

You also can try to think positive( I know, hard sometimes LOL0, and that is the 21st is the shortest day and now we will go to longer days which hopefully will end in a beautiful springtime.
Gosh, those kids have changed over the past years, being real teenagers now!
Is all the ice gone by now? If not, be careful!
