10 days and counting.........

In 10 days I will go from layering to keep warm to swim suit, sunscreen and a reclining chair.  It's a tough job but somebody has to do it. 
 In the meantime we have 1 and 1/2 days left of work and then the weekend so I best get ready for work.  Have a great day no matter what you are doing.

2011 Christmas

This is our make shift Christmas tree in Tampa!  Isn't it great?  We had the best time.  There were actually 8 adults and 4 dogs in a 3 bedroom apt.  Everyone got along well.  Well except for the few times I got on GRB's nerves (but isn't that a mom's job?).

From what I hear if you havcn't seen the movie "Elf" this is a scene right out of the movie.  "Santa's coming!!!!!!

The four amigos opening a treasure.  The excitement on their faces tells the whole story (yes, they just woke up).  Love these guys.

Don't these two look like they ought to be on a cruise ship sailing off somewhere warm!!

More fun people.  I don't know if you realize it or not but this is the room of an artist.  Can you guess which one he is?

Family Christmas 2011

We went home for a special birthday celebration and were surprised with 2 of my brothers coming in town at the same time.  This is one of our favorite family members.  Lucy doesn't know she is of the canine family.  We won't tell her any different.

My Aunt Gerry and 2 of my brothers:  Precious and Ricky...or so that is what Roy was referred to for the evening.  He was all about being the favorite and snubbing Ricky.  Susan and Ann dogged Roy all night.  It is so good to laugh and laughing with family is the best.

Aunt Gerry and Ricky - she was having trouble deciding who was the bad one and who was the good one!
I see a Christmas card for next year!!!
Now that is a beautiful picture!  Merry Christmas everybody.  We love you.

Another Kodak moment! HO HO HO More of my favorite people.  Love you You guessed it....Aunt Gerry and Precious (AGAIN)

Then she gave me a sachi thermol bag that was filled with goodies and a
box of chocolates.  Can you say spoiled?
Jaunice made each of us this great apron that fits inside of a coffee mug!  It has little pockets to store pens, pencils, paint brushes so they are right at your fingertips.  Just the thing for a crafter to have.  Thank you Jaunice. Marv made up these great gift bags with treats including the cupcake die you see next to the bag.  On the back of the cupcake is a gift certificate for each of the ladies from CTMH <VBG>.  And she gave me a jar of buttons and these cute litte canisters for storage.  Oh I love containers!!  Thank you Marv!
