is it REALLY december???

where are you 2009.... i think you're hiding....
i have been so busy..... i think i missed you....
please come and stay today, tomorrow... and so on.......


i am in shock that 2009 is neary over!! it doesn't seem possible that we are going to be closing the book on this year and enter a new decade!!! time keeps on slipping, slipping, slipping into the future......

okay, i will TRY to not make any more references to songs or lyrics...

this past week has been crazy at our house~a new section of decking around the pool, a new fence around the pool, 2 new bathroom floors, a carpet removal and hardwood restoration on the living room floor, new dining room curtains (and one entire wall in my dining room is windows!!), new curtains ordered for the living room and back hallway/butler's pantry... whew!! and i have 20 Christmas cookie exchange bags to sew for my sweet friend djt in kansas city!!

this is going to be a very exciting and busy month for our family... our first born is moving into HIS FIRST place of his very own!!! he and his fiance are going to get his things moved in and settled into their place but she is still away at school until right before their wedding in may!! life is so exciting but moving so fast!! i am thrilled for him and his beautiful fiance`, God has truly blessed the two of them with each other~ we could not have asked for anyone better!
i even went out and bought them hand quilted and embroidered stockings to hang in their new place...... i am excited!!

i also went out and BOUGHT Christmas cards this year!! i know.... gasp, shock, unbelievable!! we just have so much going on and i need to be scanning photos for the kids' big wedding project but instead i am doing household stuff!! so, i purchased cute handmade cards this year. i am going to put personal messages in them and a family photo... but they are not handmade... so sorry to disappoint anyone, but life DOES GO ON!!

well, i hope that all is well with you and yours... i hope that you enjoying this wonderful season that is upon us. i LOVE Christmas and ALL that it means... Jesus coming to earth as a baby to save us from our sins, the reason for this blessed season. I LOVE all of the music, the carols, the bells ringing and even grouchy people, because then i can smile and say, "MERRY CHRISTMAS" to them NOT "happy holidays", i want happy holidays and can have them because of CHRISTMAS!!!

enjoy the moments, the minutes, the hours, the days and the memories......
