Hi Friends! Just a super quick post in between getting home, quick supper and rushing to the LAST Holiday concert of the season - whew!

We are home! Rolled in late last night, had THE MOST exhausting morning ever and would have loved to be home catching up on much needed sleep instead! Didn't happen The trip was lovely but had some serious drawbacks - a couple kids had flu-like symptoms and got on the bus and went on the trip anyway and that night spiked high fevers, chills, nausea, vomitting ....... the day of the Candlelight Show 3 of the students just dropped right off the stage! (7 in total, 3 of them of from our HS) Our backstage holding area looked like an infirmary! Needless to say, but the time we all got on the bus after Disney all day Monday, HALF THE BUS was sick (including one of my two daughters!) - worst, longest bus ride EVER .... the OTHER daughter woke up today with 102* - ay yi yi! My son JUST got over this, rofl! But better now than Christmas morn ... so always a plus, right?

I'm SO behind. Forgive me slacking on the blogging and visits!! I do miss you , the chats, the fellowshipping! I have a christian book give-away on my blog if you want to stop by and just give a shout out - I'd love for a sister here to win it!!

Blessings!!!!!!!!!

The joys of brother and sisterhood is church <3 praying this virus flies by pretty quick.

Hi Girls!

Hey, I just wanted to share a little sumpin' sumpin' with you all. You may have seen the information on Facebook already today, but for those of you that use tablets, Stampin' UP! has their catalog available to view and order from via an app starting today.

The app you need is Google Catalogs. To access the catalogs once the app is downloaded you use your Google login - should be the same login that a lot of you use for Blogger. If you do not have one, you can create one easily.

I can only speak for Apple, but Google Catalogs is available through iTunes for free. There are so many different catalogs available other than SU! Anyway, you download the app, then choose the Stampin' UP! catalog. It gives the entire 2012-2013 catalog with pricing and ability to get specific information on each item, options to email an item to someone and to order from the app itself.

Pretty cool beans! Have fun!!!

Good Morning Ladies--heading home today. Yes, I had a really nice time with Dyna--DPJ here on SCS. She picked me up at the hotel and took me to San Antonio Art Stamps store--very cute store with a couple of local stamp lines too. She then treated me to a great Mexican lunch and brought me back to the hotel--Fun Stuff!

The banquet was nice last night and a retired AD from Wis. recieved a special national award. I do plan to beat the winter storm--I am flying through Atlanta and get into Milwaukee around 5:30. The storm is not supposed to get there until later tonight!

It has been a wonderful convention, but I am ready to get home...................

This is kind of what it looks like outside today--but right now it is raining.............. We had about 3 inches of snow overnight and it has been raining since about 7 this morning--so now it is huge slushy mess. It will turn back to snow later and we still are to get about 8-10 inches. There are blizzard warnings west and north of us as it has been snowing all night and the winds are pretty strong.

I had no trouble getting home and just chilled last night while roomie went to a choir party. I have no plans for today--other than doing wash and getting caught up online.

I hope everyone who is in this storm's path stays safe............... and dry!

I want Kelly's coffee at Barb's snowy cottage near BlueInk's North Pole! My sons are snow lovers, so we've been feeling very snow deprived this year! Today, we have a wicked wind and rain which may be turning to snow once the cold front hits. I just hope the last of my college boys can make it home safely tomorrow!

I spent the morning making some tags for Christmas presents. More crafting to do!

Good afternoon ladies!!!. I'm in for coffee too but I know it is a bit too late. It snowed yesterday all day long, the roads were a mess and I crashed in front of the Mall entrance while trying my last resources for Christmas shopping . Nothing mayor though just a bump... I really need some calm in my life... probably that was a sign...We are going to have lots of get togethers till the end of the year, that is a good thing. We really enjoy being with friends when the family is so far away. I'm exited.

I hope you are all having a great day. I still owe you blog visits but with all this busy season it becomes hard to dedicate time to the computer. I'll try tonight.

Good Morning Faith-Filled Friends!

FYI: Our other two children are arriving today and will be here until after Christmas. Therefore, I will be spending most of my time enjoying having our family together. I will not have much time on SCS. So let me wish you a very
Merry Christmas, just in case I don’t make it back before then.

Good morning, friends! I have a major announcement...

WE HAVE SNOW!

Finally! We're on a two hour delay for school this morning. I'm so glad I did the shopping yesterday. I can stay inside with a nice cup of coffee and enjoy the view.

Jeanette, enjoy the family!

Hello Ladies--we did get quite a bit of snow--I think around 8 inches. I had a dentist appointment this morning and then some errands. I am just finishing up a digital scrapbook--not a Christmas present but a summary of 2011. I have made a memory book for the past three years.

I hope you are having a great Friday!

Good morning, friends.

I know it's been a while since I visited and I apoligize for being so delinquent. I've been quite sick, actually, and I'm just now starting to feel better. I've never had to take time off work for illness but this one whooped my butt and I had to give in to it. Anyhow, I've also been busy making Christmas cards which I will be posting to my blog later on today if you want to take a peek (A Piece Of Heart).

I also apologize for not being able to keep up on the prayer requests. There are so many pages to scroll back through that I think I'm just going to do a blanket covering over everyone in the group, if that's OK. This brings me to another question ... have you ever thought of creating a group offsite such as a yahoo group. I know this is a SplitCoasters group but who is to say that you can't have a yahoo group that includes only SplitCoaster sisters. With a yahoo group at least you can choose to have the notifications sent to your email and they all come .. not just after you've visited the forum like happens here. In this group I will get the next notification but I have to visit the site in order to receive more after that. This forum, unfortunately, isn't set up well for this type of group. I would be more than willing to get that going if you all agree to it. I just think it would draw us together more and it will be easier to keep up with .. no more scrolling backwards through the posts to figure out where you left off. What do you think? Kelly, I'm going to PM you about this to make sure you see it.

I hope everyone has a very Merry CHRISTmas and you enjoy the holidays with your families.

Hi everyone ~ sorry to be MIA ... that dreaded flu that hit the kids while on the choral trip and had them dropping like flies hit me. In fact, it was so bad, I was minutes away from the ER. I had not only the flu but it breached to respiratory distress. Scariest moment ever. But dh got it under control and I've since seen my dr, given tami-flu - yuck. I'm dizzy and drained and have a billion things to do still before Cmas .. alas, this Cmas will go down in the record books.

Sharon - good to see you, my friend. Left a note on your blog awhile back to check on you! I did get your PM (partly why dragged myself on in here and plan to go right back to bed!) I personally have 3 other groups that are yahoo groups and to be honest, they arent' moving. I think to get everyone in one more place to check into is more of a hardship. It's hard enough to get people here in SCS sometimes! I do appreciate the thought but from my personal experience, since we are all united on SCS, it's easier to check into 'one place' rather than a bunch of different places (Pinterest, FB, SCS, Blogs, etc) But that's just from my perspective and maybe the ladies have better ideas and thoughts in mind.

Ladies, going back to bed ........ be well and know I'm thinking of you all

Hello, ladies! Sharon, nice to see you again! Sorry to hear you were so sick. Kelly, get well! I hear it's a nasty flu season. My MIL was supposed to come for Christmas, but she got so sick with the flu last week that she ended up in the hospital. She's now dealing with bronchial pneumonia and COPD, so needless to say, she's not visiting.

I don't mean to point a finger (because this was totally me a few months back) but there are people on our blog roll who are not even blogging. Should we look for new participants? i think it's important that if we commit to this, we're also committing to visiting each other's blogs, kwim? Maybe things will get better in the new year.

Let's not sweat the prayer requests. If we see it, great! If not, God's got it under control.

It is December 22, and I still do not have a tree. There. Hope that made all of you feel a little better about being behind this holiday season!

Hello---Happy Saturday Afternoon!

We went for a hike at the park with two friends and their dog this morning--we went three miles and we out for close to 2 hours. It was nice in the woods--no wind and I even took off my mittens as my hands got pretty warm.

We are going to an open house later this afternoon--it is for a friend who is moving to Singapore for a year or more to open a new office for his business.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Good afternoon ladies!!!. I'm on my way to clean our church and then have some dinner with friends. Let the holidays begin!!!... I hope you have a fantastic weekend. I'll try to be back tomorrow. I visited blogs yesterday YAYYYYY!!!.

Maryrose, about what you said, I also noticed that there are some ladies that not participate at all. I would PM them to see if they are still interested in being part of the group... But... Adding more ladies... I don't know about this... I always thought we are a big group as it is and sometimes I struggle to comment on so many ladies. I don't know what you all think... but don't worry I'll go with the flow. Not a problem!!!

Have a fantastic day!!!

Hi again, ladies;

I will be the first to admit that I haven't visited any blogs lately due to being sick and Christmas and performances at Church etc etc etc. Yes, I know, excuses, excuses, excuses. Well, let me just say I'm sorry and I promise to do better after Christmas is over and the New Year begins. (please don't read this thinking I'm feeling like anyone here was mad at me for not participating ... because I know that's not at all true. I know we all have stuff and this time of year is just a crazy time so I wanted to take ownership of my own short comings. )

Kelly, I understand your reasons for not wanting to start another group. I'm just going to have to visit more regularly so that I don't have to scroll back so far everytime, lol.

Goodnight, friends.

It's all good, Sharon! It's all good! I'm just getting back into the swing of this blog visiting thing myself. I've got a long list of " crafty things I will do better in 2013", and blog commenting is one of them. Did you see that Beth Moore has a new bible study? Looks good!

Barb, I love walking in the snow. Sound travels so much differently in the winter. My dog is a senior citizen with arthritis now, but she still loves winter. When it snows, she wants to go outside one hundred times a day!

Mary Rose, I didn't know that Beth has a new study. I will have to take a look at her website. I notice you said your dog has arthritis. My dog is 12 and in the past couple of months he has started to have trouble going up and down stairs. At one point he was barely able to support himself and unable to walk. We started to give him glucosalmine pills which are helping. He still has difficulty with stairs but at least he can stand and walk now.

Hello COF Girls!

Sharon, I am so sorry that you have been so sick. I hope that you are on the mend and well on the way to recovery.

Kels, oh the flu! Yikes. What a time of year to have that. This is the first year I actually did the flu inoculation. With all of the migraine headaches I have been getting, I could not imagine potentially have both at the same time! Oh! Crossing my fingers it covers when and if needed! I hope that you drink lots of tea and feel better really soon. I know it is Christmas, but you need to take care of yourself!

Carolina, bummer on the fender bender. Why does that stuff have to happen?!?! I am glad it was minor and that you have some soirees to keep your spirits up!

Mary Rose, how was the coffee and snow show? I bet it was fun. It is not so great that your MIL is ill. Hopefully, she is on the mend and keeping in touch with her doctor - COPD is a messy thing when you get ill.

Everyone else.....have a great weekend!

My dog is twelve, too. We'd been giving her glucosamine for about the last two years, but this summer her arthritis got so bad that it was painful for her to sit and do stairs. So now she's on an anti-inflammatory pill, a thyroid pill, a pain pill, glucosamine, and a senior vitamin every day. We even built her a ramp off the deck so that she wouldn't have to do stairs to go in the yard. She tends to stay on the main floor now. She's doing MUCH better with the medicines now. The vet did tell us two things which may help:
1. The best glucosamine on the market is Cosequin brand.
2. Keep her warm this winter, as the cold will make her joints stiff.

Twelve is pretty old for a lab, so we know that every year from now on is about keeping her comfortable and giving her a good quality of life. She's still got a lot of life in her, still chasing balls and barking at squirrels. She gets more excited than the boys on Christmas morning...new toys! She's a great dog and a wonderful member of the family.

My dog is a lab as well .. yellow lab retriever named Tucker. He still has lots of life in him as well so I hope we are able to have a few more good years with him. Isn't he gorgeous
