Pink Saturday : Favorite Christmas Decor

For the past 8 years or so, I have been collecting
vintage Shiny Brite glass balls.
Our Christmas tree has become one of
my most favorite Christmas
decor pieces.
I have focused on more pink and robin's egg blue
and some silver.
The above photo was last years tree...
We decided it was the most beautiful tree
we have ever had.
We get a Forest Service permit and
head up the mountain to hike around
till we find "The One".
That is what we are doing
THIS Saturday, heehe!
This was a couple of years ago.

One of my other favorite things is
Me and Holly's matching
snowflake footie pj's.
I got her a woman's size small
and me a medium.
She was only in the third grade so she had to roll
the waistband up a lot the first few years.
Now we are about the same size
but she still fits in hers.

I actually wear mine pretty often
when it is cold, but she saves hers for
Christmas Eve.
She is so warm blooded they are too warm for
her to sleep in much.
Have a great week and make sure you
pop in to see Beverly for more

Memories of Christmas Past

This week for
We are supposed to share favorite
Christmas Memories
This was my second Christmas.
I was born in the summer so I was only
four months old my first Christmas.
I was still the only grandchild
As you can see by looking at my Mom in the red
I wouldn't be the only grandchild for long!

This is my Grama
(My Mom's Mom)
She passed away about 15 years ago
I still miss her!

By the next Christmas I had
sweet baby sister

We lost our precious Sally to
leukemia in 1970 at age 6
But I know we will be together again
some day!
This is me with Santa.
As you can tell, the jolly old elf
wasn't scary to me!
Stop by
Beverly's How Sweet the Sound

Pink Saturday!

Twilight = Edward ....Need a Good Love Story??

I have a 16 year old daughter
We have done
Harry Potter
Lord of the Rings
and have loved them all.
She wanted to watch Twilight when it
came out. I said,
"No Way...we do NOT do
Vampires in this house!!"
As a child, I had horrible reoccurring
vampire nightmares and have
wanted anything to do with them.
When New Moon came out,
It looked kind of interesting and my sister
told me it was really a love story.
Now, I am a total sucker for a good
love story.

So we rented Twilight
and we have been to see
New Moon 3 times
and now own Twilight.
This is Edward
He is a 103 year old virgin
(yes...he is a vampire)
He is old fashioned, romantic and chivalrous
I was besotted immediately!

This is him and Bella
His ONLY true LOVE
If you wonder what I was up to
during the Thanksgiving holiday
I was reading all four books
in the Twilight Saga.
The books are even better than
the movies.
If you prefer tall, dark and hunky
then Jacob is the werewolf for you.
If you are a twilight fan,
give a shout out
so I won't feel like I am the only
46 year old with a crush on a 103 year
old vampire that looks 25
Ok...He is supposed to be 17 but the actor
Rob Pattenson is stretching that a little!
Yep, I am a sucker for
a good love story!
