I know I have not been posting much lately but I will try to be better in the new year!!
I appreciate all the sweet comments this year and so thankful for all the friends I have made, near and far.
 One of my wishes this year is that bloggers come back  and not be hooked on Facebook all the time.
Probably wishful thinking but you know who you are and we all miss you!

************Enjoy and be safe ************

My grandson Nathan got his driving permit!
Is that a happy face or what!
Remember when you got your driving permit?
I do, like it was yesterday ( not really)

Hope your day was great!

A few Christmas pics 2015

Changed up from last year and I am showing only 2 right now because my pictures are still loading.
Love the tree and only new thing on it is glittery grapevine I found from JoAnn at The Old Granary. Looks so pretty at night, don't know how you like glittery but I love it on a tree.

Spent the day yesterday in Holly all day, the weather was perfect and had lunch with Dawn, Janet and Tammi at Bittersweet Cafe.
I also met a blog follower Carol Shlupp (sorry if I messed up your name Carol) but nice to meet you.

Argh I had a mouthful of food!!!

Holly Hills Primitives is open today so check it out if your able to.
I bought a really sweet make-do bench made by Dick but need to take a pic to show you.
Bobbie we missed you!!!!


Have a wonderful day!

The weather report was right on and I got some great pictures for you to see. Have you been hit by this snowstorm.

It is still falling and very heavy right now. Hope we don't lose power. These pictures were taken at 10:45 this morning and we have at least 4 more inches on the ground!
I love this first pic.

UPDATE 4:00 pm ....we have a foot on the ground right now and still snowing!!!!

Killing me not being able to bring out my Christmas decorations but I will wait one more week.

Stay Warm
