Christmas Decorating In My Home...

So here I sit and as I look around I finally think I have figured out how to decorate for christmas in this house, see this will be our third christmas in this home. Yes it has taken me this long to get a feel for how I want to decorate, well also because most of my pictures didn't turn out the last two years only just a few, so really I had forgotten where I had placed things at, and I have to have things together I can't just put stuff out, everything has to have it spot!! Whew, I know kinda odd but that is me, none the less this year I have taken tons of pictures so far just in case and yes as my kids tease me from every angle possible.

Snowflakes are falling........

Well it's snowing snowflakes, but these I don't mind, as a matter of fact they look so delicious I just want to eat them, in all actuality these are the cookies I made for the ladies in the front office at my youngest school, of course I had to leave some at home for my kiddos to enjoy, I am sure these won't melt but I do know they will disappear by tonight......

I Think I Am Ready.......

Hi Everyone, well I am sitting and thinking to myself how thankful I am for the home that my dear hubby has provided for us, and even more thankful that I am inside and not outside because it is really, really cold out there. Yesterday we had a windchill factor of -15 degrees!!!!
None the less over the last weekend I finished up the outside decorating and I want to show some pictures, now some of these may seem like duplicates but they were actually taken at different times, the pictures with the white spots on them well these are not ghosts or orbs or anything odd like that, this is SNOW!!!! We got hit with the season's second snow and yes I was out taking pictures just so you could see, hope you enjoy them!!!!

"November comes
And November goes,
With the last red berries
And the first white snows.

With night coming early,
And dawn coming late,
And ice in the bucket
And frost by the gate.

The fires burn
And the kettles sing,
And earth sinks to rest
Until next spring."

- Elizabeth Coatsworth


If you are anything but into the christmas spirit, then join me, I am always looking for new cookie recipes, so lets get an early start with this 100 days of holidays. ENJOY!

Charlie Brown's Thanksgiving...

Good morning, so I have been reminiscing about years gone by, we have one daughter married and is sooner than later going to begin their family tradition, and as I thought on this I had to laugh to myself about the number of times I made my kids watch the Charlie Brown specials on the telle(TV). So I have decided to start my thanksgiving preparations by watching this!!!!
Yes I know I am a bit older than before but I love these shows and Mr. Hubby and the kids will be made to sit and watch with me!!! So here you go I hope you enjoy!

While The Trees Sleep

I think I need a special clock that will just stop time, everything seems to go by so fast these days.
I can remember as a child I would always think this is the slowest day of my life, now everyday flies by that at times I can't remember it! So today I have decided to slow down and just listen to the music, won't you join me even if it just for a few minutes, let us just dwell in this moment of life. I hope you enjoy video.

Kids Relaxing.....

Here they are, at first his sister wouldn't pay any attention to him, now she's keeping a close eye on him to make sure he doesn't misbehave and he won't lay down anywhere that isn't near her. Her job is never done, and he is behaving like a typical younger brother!!!!

Meet Marley!

Hi Everyone, well I know it has been quite awhile, but I have been so super busy, and to add to this we just added a new member to our family, yes here he is Marley, he is 5 months old and a cutie pie, just in case you are wondering he is a Puggle. Right now he is busy beyond belief and I thought our 5 kids were work, but this puppy has won that title, and his sister Arwin she seems no more enthused with him than she was before he got here! WHEW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Have a wonderful day.

Marley just waking up!!!

Arwin hasn't noticed him yet!!!

Until Tomorrow, Sweet Dreams......

Giant Cookies!

So I wanted to bake some cookies today but I wanted the super giant kind of cookies you normally get at the malls! I didn't want to bake by scratch today so I decided to try these, and guess what these declicious looking cookies probably won't last 3 seconds in the house, for each cookie I took a 1/4 cup of cookie dough and put it on a ungreased cookie sheet, I was able to fit 4 on each sheet, that should tell you how big these are, then I cooked them for exactly 16 minutes at 350 degrees. We haven't eaten them yet but a cold glass of milk OMG I think I will be in heaven!!!!!

Dog's Life!!!

Well here she, my little girl, she decided to jump into the pool with her brothers then next thing you know she gets on the tube and decided to lounge for the rest of the time, watching to make sure the boys don't make a sneak attack!!

Here she is afterwards just exhausted from watching those boys of hers!!! So much for her to do, running around, chasing the boys, digging in the grass, what's a dog to do but have a stretch on the couch!!!!!
