Merry Christmas ~~

I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men!
                                                    ~~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The days are short and the last preparations
are being made to greet Christmas Day.
As I move from task to task I am ever mindful
and grateful of all our Blessings ..........
Our cozy cabin in the woods,
the warmth & comfort we enjoy from the
 fires we have burning,
the meals I have  planned,
the many desserts I have baked
and the  family & friends that are with us
always in good times & in bad.

Wishing All of You, My Dear Friends
A Blessed Merry Christmas
Filled with Love, Laughter, & Joy
May You find a renewal of Faith & Hope
May You be Surrounded by Those You Love
 May Your Heart & Home
Be Filled with the True Spirit of Christmas
Today December 20th is our oldest
Grand~Daughter Taylor Lynn's 10th
Birthday she was and is the Best
Christmas Present we could ever receive.
Happy Birthday My Christmas Angel.
Sending Blessings & Warm Christmas Hugs

Good Cheer

At Christmas Play and make Good Cheer,
For Christmas comes but once a Year. 
 ~~ Thomas Tusser 

The cold as finally set in ..... we wait with anticipation
for the snow to come ... for nothings says
Christmas as a blanket of white. 
The tree is up, the greens in place and
the cabin smells delightful . 
Smells, Sights, Sounds
a magical time of year.
Most of the shopping is done .... so now
its on to wrapping & baking two of my favorite
things to do no matter what time of year. 

I was very lucky my DH had taken out a two year
warranty on my camera so I was covered
for the last mishap ... they actually found
they couldn't fix it, so
I will received a brand new camera.
This was all done at
Best Buy with the Geek Squad.  
I'm most Happy.  :-)
I cant believe how many times I
have reach for the camera to remember
Dang I don't  have it.  
I don't claim to have any talent in  the photography
department but I do tend to see ... all around me
things  that make me think Wow, how Neat
or how Beautiful what a great photo that would make.
Plus how can anyone have Sweet Grands and
not think ..... I must have that shot. lol
I have been totally lost with out it.
Here again are a few pics some from  my

 I hope all your holiday preparations
are right in order and bring you
much Happiness & Joy 
for Christmas is a Season, and
a State of Mind as much as it is a Day. 
EnJoy !!
Sending you Best Holiday Wishes,
Blessings & Warm Hugs
