Tick Tock

I really do not know what happened to 2012!

Between moving, a wedding, and 2 months of illness....poof, it is GONE!

I am praying that 2013 will be full of joy and wellness, not only for me and my family, but for all my blogging friends also!!

Be safe and Happy New Year!!

Oh How I love Christmas!

I love it all....the lights, the tree, the ornies, the music, and the true meaning of Christmas - Jesus' birthday!

But I will also admit, I love presents.  Oh, I love to find the perfect present for people....I am a giver, BUT....

I love getting presents also!

My girlfriend Candy always seems to find just the perfect thing for me.  This year she gave me an antique fan.  I have wanted one for years!


and she also gave me a Tea Brick.  An interesting story that goes with the way that Tea was sold as a Brick.....and then scraped to get the leaves.  I will not be using this....but I told her it was definately BLOG WORTHY!

Yep, I love me some Christmas presents!!

Bentley Here

Mom and Dad are taking the day off.  They keep saying how they aren't as young as they used to be!

Yesterday was so much fun....I kept trying to get the new Lego pieces, but everyone knows my trick by now, and they were really watching....

I did get some cookies though!

 The kiddos opening some gifts....

  Yep, that is grandgirl ....she is a handful!

 Ok, that's better...

Ok....this is good!

Here are the old folks....before they were in bed!
Me, I just want to be left alone....with my bone, and no hats...

Well, we had fun and will be back soon....after mom and dad take their naps!

Yes, Virginia, It does get Cold in Arizona


We got a huge dip in the temperatures and it is freezing.....Had to cover up the plants last night....hopefully they survived.

I have been terrible about posting and I am behind in showing Christmas things....but I had to share my wreath from Meri.  It is all blacks and silvers and white....I love the vintage touch.  I am telling you, this wreath is spectacular!  Thanks so much Meri.

My doctor gave me some new medicine for my stomach and it is finally settling down.  That makes me feel more like myself.  Yesterday my hubby took my to Red Lobster for clam chowder.  Every bite I said, thank you Jesus.  It was so delicious!  First real meal in almost 2 months!

Well, gotta get some feet are freezing!

I really don't know

how I am supposed to say Thank you.  To say that my husband and I are shocked beyond words for the generosity of blogging friends around the world is an understatement.

Friday morning Marty, Meri, and Laura came by my home and brought the most amazing gift to us.  Disneyland for my family.  This has been a dream of mine since my journey began.  I long to see Disneyland through the eyes of my grandchildren.

Why and how so many of you gave unselfishly, during this time when all of us are looking for every extra penny!  And Laura, giving up her Etsy money that I know she could use for her family.  Miss Marty keeping it all straight when she has family coming and going, and all her various activities.  I am just moved beyond words.

We will have to wait a bit before we take our trip.  We are kinda thinking of March.  I would not be able to do it now.

I am getting better.  At least I can read some blogs now and know what I read!  Thank you for the prayers.  I KNOW that it is the prayer of many that brought me through this trial. (My doctors have kind of told me that it is 5 days for every hospitalized day before I feel more like myself!  Guess I have a ways to go!)

This picture is taken the day my angels came by.  I really didn't want a picture.  But I finally swallowed my pride and said ok.  As you can see, I lost my hair.  This is reality....Hate it, but at least I am standing!

I also can't wait to show you the gorgeous wreath that Meri brought me.  I missed the craft day at her home...bummer.....but the wreath is gorgeous!

Stopping in to say Hi!

I am still here bloggers!  Getting a little better (as my husband says) everyday.  Last night I slept through without a pain pill.....
I am still very weak so I am still not posting much or blogging, but I think of you each and every day.

My husband thought I needed a bit of a time out, so we took this London Bus Tour of Christmas lights.

It was beautiful.  I cried most of the evening, just thankful to have my vision and be able to enjoy one of life's little gifts.

Just to prove that I am still I am....the hand is definately holding the head up!  we were the first there...that bus was packed!  and LOUD!

 The last four are from the Mesa Morman Tabernacle.  Absolutely stunning!
