2014 - are you kidding!

I  haven't fallen off the planet.  Just very busy.  My hubby was home last week, so I took advantage of the help and got all Christmas put away and everything clean.....

We had a fabulous Christmas.  One of the best I can remember in quite a while.  Hubby got me a new camera, which I am still learning. 

I want to wish all of you a Wonderful New Year!  Full of Joy and Blessings......

Thank you all for being my blogging friends.....I appreciate your comments, encouragement and mostly prayers. 

BE SAFE!  Shame we need to say that, but there unfortunately are some rough characters out there and a few too many nips at the juice!!  Us, we will be in BED!!

Away in a Manger

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed....

The little Lord Jesus lay down His sweet head...

The stars in the sky look down where He lay.....

The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay.

The cattle are lowing, the baby awakes....

But little Lord Jesus no crying He makes

I love thee Lord Jesus look down from the sky

And stay by my cradle till morning is nigh.

Merry CHRISTmas
to all my blogging friends.

I pray you have a sweet and memorable time with friends and family
celebrating our Saviour's birth!

Not Mine....Theirs!

I went and got chemo Tuesday and I had to share these 2 photos with you.  People are so clever.....

That evening we took our transportation of choice, the Golf Cart and I took some shots of our neighbors homes decorated.  We however ARE NOT one of them!!

This is typical AZ Christmas humor!

 Now did some senior climb up on that pole to put the snowman there?  I'm just askin'!!

Lots of people put their decorated tree on the patio.  I would worry about my ornies...but hey, as my hubby would say...."whatever floats your boat!"

So there it is....a touch of Christmas, 55+ style!!!!

My Carolers....

They are not Byers, but I think they are precious.

My hubby found the lamp this year at Cracker Barrel...Perfect!

The carolers are standing on old caroling books.  Remember those when you went caroling?

FA La La!

A Vintage Christmas wreath

Organized Clutter is having vintage Christmas decor party and I am there!

I made a Christmas wreath for the kitchen a few years ago....

This little cake pan was mine when I was a child.

I found the little spatula at a sale...

The little measuring cup was also mine as a child.

The cookie cutters were my mom's.  I have a LOT more!

A cute little rolling pin.

Another of my mom's favorite cookie cutters.

Lots of memories in one little wreath.

My Putz houses

I was so happy to be able to attend the Putz/Blogger party at Meri's.

My dining area this year is done in black and white.  I already had this gorgeous plate and I just thought the houses went perfect with it.

 This little tree my mom gave me about 35 years ago!

This is my chair decorated for the holidays....I do NOT let anyone sit on it!

Just a little more Christmas around our home.

Our Christmas Tree 2013

I didn't want to do a white and silver tree this I did gold, copper, and brown.  I think it is so beautiful.  Of course, pictures never do a tree justice....but here it is!
