~ Santa's coming soon! ~


It's that time of year....such a wonderful, busy time too.  I have missed you and have tried to visit a few blogs.  I promise I'll do better in the future!   The Newtown tragedy took the wind out of my sails and left me with a shattered heart and nothing much to say.  I'm sending cards to each of the families ~ I feel like that's the least I can do for them at this time.

I've been crazy busy just like you with preparations for the big day.  I really had my shopping done early but the wrapping had to be done.  I've been baking and cooking ~ trying to get all the family "requests" completed.  It's really hard for me to remember the camera when I'm in the throes of all this.  You probably wouldn't want to see a lot of it anyway.  :)

Thank God, my eyes are better!  My allergy Dr gave me a cortisone shot last Monday along with a few recommendations.  I'm still taking 2 antihistamines daily & Benadryl too.  Drinking tons of water and that's a good thing.  It's so very dry here and no rain and the wind has been blowing a LOT.  Perhaps a few snow flakes Christmas night ~ we shall see!  I realize some of you have more snow than you'd like.

I really hope everyone has a wonderfully, blessed, extremely Merry Christmas!

Nice to see you, Pat. A very Merry Christmas to you, too. I think a lot of us lost our zest for decorating when Newton happened. xo Diana

Merry Christmas, Pat!! Snowflakes?? I will miss that! Down here in Houston I don't think there's much chance of that!! Allergies seem to be everywhere! LD is having a terrible time. He just gets used to DFW and its weather and allergy inducing things then we come down here and he has to start all over.

Glad you are feeling better!!!

Merry Christmas, Pat! I can relate......I haven't had much to say either. Glad your eyes are better! I'm hoping and praying for lots of snow on Christmas Day for us as we haven't had any in two years. :-)

Merry Christmas to you, Pat! Hope yours is blessed by the love of that baby born so many centuries ago who was and is the greatest gift ever given.

Pat, I'm with you. I have a hard time remembering to grab the camera too during such busy times. I appreciate the address you left for the families of Sandy Hook. It does seem we've all been so affected by such a horrific act. Thank you for your sweet comment on my post. I sure appreciate your visit. Wishing you a Blessed Christmas!

So glad your eyes are better....
I've sent many snowflakes to PTA in Newtown for decorating the other schools for the children. I can hardly think about it all...the saddest thing I've ever heard about.
