I also think of those who have lost loved ones at this time of year and feel so blessed that I still have all my family . My husbands cousin lost her 27 year old son in a tragic accident this past week . He left behind a wife and three young children so please say a prayer for them as you celebrate with your loved ones this holiday season. Blessings!

I created a few star ornaments for my tree and thought I would share them. My whole tree has mostly white and silver ornaments on it and I am loving that look. I used some pages out of a very old church hymnal for these star ornies. I had fun making them and am in the process of making more ornaments as well. I do wish all of you a wonderful weekend filled with love and blessings!

I purchased this huge vintage basket a while ago and I love it. I also bought another smaller one , but it didn't make it into the picture. I think someone was selling off their collection of these types of baskets because there were a lot of them....and several were only $5.95! What a bargain...Blessings!
I had a good day shopping and I wanted to get home by the time hubby got home from work because we had to drop off our truck at the shop to be worked on . I got home and was puttering around and thankfully happened to check my email and found one asking me to pick up hubby at five pm as he was working overtime. Which...by the way, his place of work was right on my way home from Defiance.......okay....I can do that, but had I known that I would have stayed in town longer and picked him up on the way home....LOL...oh well anyway...
Just as I am getting around the phone rings again......."Mom this is Nate....what are you doing tonight"...why Nathan what’s up...(my son that I dropped of meds to earlier in the day) Well, mother-in-law is now very sick and she can’t watch Annika.......can you watch her?.....all the time I am thinking Oh dear Lord pleaseeeee help me not to get this bug because I have company coming in next week......"Sure I can watch her"...."okay can you pick her up at mother in law’s place" So I made a bigggggg sweeping circle to pick up adorable granddaughter and then on to pick up "paw paw" at work. I will say I was soooo tired of driving at that point. Hubby got in the car VERY hungry so we stopped at McDonalds and got him a bite and listened to our sweet granddaughter say , "Fry....fry....fry"...she was liking his fries! So I drive back home yet again and paw paw gets out of the car and into his truck and we take both vehicles to drop off the truck at the shop which was the same direction we just came from! It seems like all I did all day was run around the county over and over. But when we finally got home to stay for the evening we had a very delightful time with our precious granddaugher. She is just a joy and is a very happy little girl.....she made our day!
