Changed up my Bay Window

What do you think?
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
I caved, and took down my decorations except for the tree because I like the lights at night, for a little while anyways. 
Cleaning and nesting all day today since it is so cold outside so a good day to stay home.
~Happy Monday~

Out and about the day after Christmas

The weather was beautiful and I had cabin fever big time so I spent the day and went to one of my fav shops The Old Granary for her sale and the last day she is open until Spring.
 Grunge prim burlap tree
 spoon rack hanging on the wall and the prim footstool
 prim peg
 prim bench and a 1803 candle...thats it
 I have always wanted one of these and my daughters gifted it and can't wait to use it. Maybe tonight with it getting in the 40's today.
 Love this !! Thank you Francine!
She sent me this in her card for Christmas.
(Primitive Stars blog)
 My best friend Cindys gift, it is so pretty on !!!!

 Cindy also gave me this old prim stuffed cupie ( for my birthday)
and a new pair of pj's but can't show you cause I have them on:0)
 Just another picture if the morning sun coming in today.
Love the sweet light.
 More sun

 Can you read the sign?

Love this time of year but I look forward to Spring with the longer days.
~Enjoy your weekend~

Kids and grandkids arrived at 4:00 for Christmas.
We always have dinner before exchanging gifts and dinner was pretty good if I may say so myself. I did not stress over it this year and made it a lot simpler because I always make too much food.
Smoked Spiral Ham
Stuffed Cabbage
Mashed Potatoes
Green Beans
Deviled Eggs
Veggis w/Dip
That's it
Enough ham to send home with everyone.
Off to the living room to open gifts, but most of all, lots of laughter
and hugs and kisses.
This is the first time I did not take pictures ever! But Norm did get video thank goodness.
My kids gave me a firepit stand so I can be closer to the house which was perfect . I always wanted one. That way we can sit in my back yard and make it more cozy with just the two of us.
My husband gave me the coolest present ever. I hate the stark white side of my fridge showing.
 See that hole below the first one. That was so when he was little he could open the door. This side is the lighter side, I can switch to the other side which is darker and reddish.

I have always wanted him to do this and look!

I have to show you this next picture. A friend gifted us with it and when you see it tell me who it looks like.
I love it.

Isn't that cute!!!!!

One more thing.
We are having a second Christmas on New Years Day.
My younger daughter and grands could not make it yesterday.
She surprised the kids with a trip to Disneyworld in Florida and flew out at 1 yesterday. I talked to her last night and thinks the kids are still in shock. So we get to do it again which sounds like fun to me.
It was really hard to keep a secret, I was so afraid I would mess up and let it out. Plus making up a story why for the first time why we could not be together on Christmas Eve.

Life, Love, Laughter is precious.
Hugs and can't wait to catch up on your holiday.

Has this happened to you?

Norm and I did some grocery shopping Sunday and my debit card came up fraud. Very upsetting cause I could not do anything about it until this morning. It is okay, my name was on the list so the bank shut my account right down. I will get a new debit and pin within 7 to 10 days.
Good thing my husband was with me to use his money.
Has it happened to any of you?

TGIF and 2 full weeks off is official...feels so good.
(not my tree, found it on images for trees)
I think this tree is so pretty.
When I was growing up we used icicles all the time.
This tree reminds me of those days and the tree we would decorate.  Many wonderful memories through the years decorating all those trees.

This is not a good picture but I could not get it to look any better, but..... it is prim cute.
How is your week going? Are you done shopping? I went last night after work and ALMOST finished. Need to get it all wrapped this weekend.
Countdown to 2 more days and I am off for a much needed 2 week break. 
I heard that a warm up is on the way so might melt all the snow, rain included.
Christmas is one week away...yikes.
I have enjoyed it so much looking and reading everyones posts this month, and thank you for stopping by to visit me. 
~Merry Christmas~

Jerry followed me all around wondering what in the heck I was doing.
