Hi everyone, they found out that Joe's lungs burst and that's what caused all the blood everywhere along with his dog getting it all over. I feel so bad for this family. thank you for your prayers.

Oh Dawn that's awful!

I haven't done lights on the windows in years. I gave all of the lights to the kids. Well DD took the icecicle lights and DS ex gf took the others.
I've thinned down a lot of decorating stuff

whatever is your desire can be your dinner!

I have to clean out the beer fridge before Browny gets home next. Something leaked and there is stuff all over the bottom. I have the stuff for the laqst of my Christmas cards ordered, so they should all be done by Monday. We are not giving gifts to our families this year - except for the kids. I bought a new tree for this year. I have bought both the boys a GPS and wrapped it to put under the tree. I need to get them a few little things. I have made Jaxson, from next door, a library bag, as he goes to school next year. I need to fill it with a few things. I have a few friends that we buy for, but the tree is going to look really empty this year. A bit sad, but lovely too! I am making up for the lack of gift buying/making by making really exciting cards though.

Christmas cards...I still have 24 to make. One set is ready to go just need to stamp the image and assemble. One set of 12 still has to be thought about and made. I will get it done though!
Holly, I am glad Caesar is doing well! We never found any of Midnight's or Cheyenne's teeth when they lost them.
Cheyenne has been having some anxiety issues again. Not sure what we can do. The supplement she was on doesn't seem to be as effective anymore. They said I can increase it, but sheesh, that would be $52 a month for that. Time to do more research I guess.
poor Cheyenne has just had a year hasn't she! Hoping today went well for her with those kids there.

Vikki Jo, cool blog, and I love the quote in your signature. It can be carried over into other aspects of life.

Got our Christmas tree up yesterday. {need to get a new tree skirt, but they sure aren't cheap!} Jodi & the girls came to help, then Jordan & Jess spent the night. Round 2 of the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse this morning... Man does Jordan LOVE that show. Had to pull it up on the disney website before it was on Disney Jr. Guess we should have gotten DVR when we got our satelite service but didn't think we'd need it. Was I ever wrong! Oh well, live & learn.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday.

Hi everyone. It was quite a weekend, and I will just leave it at that. Not terrible, but it could have been better.

Anyways! Tree is up, presents are 1/2 wrapped, cards are done. Now I just need to write out all of my cards. I hope to have that done by Saturday at the very latest.

A very damp and foggy day here. Good thing I work inside! Altho I am chilled to the core right now. Brian keeps it chilly in here! To keep us awake? I don't know!

Hi Girls.

We are in for a hot one today. It has been awful for about a week, but today is going to be the best, apparently. 108 in your language. It is 7am, the washing has just finished and as soon as it is hung out the house is being shut up, the air con is going on, and I am not going out all day! And, summer only started (officially) on the weekend......
Browny had the day off yesterday so we went to buy my Christmas present. I am now the excited owner of a Canon 650D camera with a Tamron 18-270mm zoom lens. What does this mean? I have no bloody idea at the moment, but I am planning to learn. I am going to a 'Fundamentals of Photography' course a few days before Christmas, so hopefully we will have great Christmas photos. That is of course if the world doesn't end on the 21st as the Mayans have predicted.......
Anyways, I have clothes to hang out and a house to shut up.

Sue - I still need your addy.......

I am planning on catching the neighbours!!!

Seriously, I just want to learn how to take 'real' photos. Bug and I had a play last night and so far, it seems to be easier to use than I thought.

How are your neighbours going? I feel for them, especially so close to Christmas.

I hope your day is great!

Sue - I still need your addy.......
just now getting a few minutes to catch up on the latest...

my mailing address is:
309 William Street, Avoca WI 53506

got a card today from VikkiJo - absolutely gorgeous card. Have to get my bottom in gear and get mine ready to go out.

Thursday is the big court date. Been getting paperwork completed and finalized.

Went shopping with DD on black Friday - what a madhouse. But we were at the mall and about every other store, I sat and let her shop while I watched the bags. Got some good deal and got all my gifts bought in one day! Woo Hoo!!! Even bought myself something - got myself a new comforter for my bed - it's a "down alternative" - so it's washable. Got it for $19.99. Hope it isn't too heavy, I don't like being overly warm when I sleep. I have a couple of little heating pads that snuggle with me, so they add to the possibility of being overly warm.

Laurie - had a wonderful time with you at OG. We need to do that again. Maybe next time we can spend more than 3hrs over lunch

Could one of you wonderful ladies send me a list of all the names and addresses for everyone here? I don't have any room to put up decorations yet, but I'm in the mood to send cards and have a few already made up, just need addresses.

Gotta run, going to a basketball game tonight - it's my night off from work and I'm going to spend it with my Addison. She wants me to go to the game with her. She is going to make this Christmas so special - there will be an empty chair at the dinner table, but Mom will be thought of often as we go thru the day.

later...

got a card today from VikkiJo - absolutely gorgeous card. Have to get my bottom in gear and get mine ready to go out.
Now aren't you glad you joined CCC12?

Thursday is the big court date. Been getting paperwork completed and finalized.
WOW! Good luck!! Let's us know how you come out!!!

Went shopping with DD on black Friday - what a madhouse. But we were at the mall and about every other store, I sat and let her shop while I watched the bags. Got some good deal and got all my gifts bought in one day! Woo Hoo!!! Even bought myself something - got myself a new comforter for my bed - it's a "down alternative" - so it's washable. Got it for $19.99. Hope it isn't too heavy, I don't like being overly warm when I sleep. I have a couple of little heating pads that snuggle with me, so they add to the possibility of being overly warm.
I had time to kill before an appointment and went into the Thrift store and found a Handmade, comforter/quilt not super heavy but of so fluffy for $3
I do not like to get too warm while sleeping either, but Clint sure does

Laurie - had a wonderful time with you at OG. We need to do that again. Maybe next time we can spend more than 3hrs over lunch
JEALOUS

Could one of you wonderful ladies send me a list of all the names and addresses for everyone here? I don't have any room to put up decorations yet, but I'm in the mood to send cards and have a few already made up, just need addresses.
I will in a few minutes

Gotta run, going to a basketball game tonight - it's my night off from work and I'm going to spend it with my Addison. She wants me to go to the game with her. She is going to make this Christmas so special - there will be an empty chair at the dinner table, but Mom will be thought of often as we go thru the day.

later...

Not to be sad, but have you ever heard the Empty Chair Song? it is from the Civil War about a soldier who didn't come home for Thanksgiving
Well I printed out the words to that and use SU Have A Seat to do cards for a workshop
One lady said it was WAY to sad for her to even make the card

I am ALWAYS in my stamp room now that I've taken over what was once a living room! LOLNow I wish I'd kept the couch, but it was WAY bigger than what I am wanting




I want a Love Seat in here for while Carrie is home for Christmas


One of the ladies called me and wanted to order some SU Product for her DD Christmas gift, so with the earned income from that I ordered myself some ribbon.

humm it says 1820 so it couldn't have been written during the Civil War. Wonder why the DUV has it in their DUVCW music collection/
THE VACANT CHAIR
Words by H.S. Washburn
Music by George F. Root (1820-1895)
We shall meet but we shall miss him.
There will be one vacant chair.
We shall linger to caress him
While we breathe our ev'ning prayer.
When one year ago we gathered,
Joy was in his mild blue eye.
Now the golden cord is severed,
And our hopes in ruin lie.

CHORUS: We shall meet, but we shall miss him.
There will be one vacant chair.
We shall linger to caress him
While we breathe our ev'ning prayer.

At our fireside, sad and lonely,
Often will the bosom swell
At remembrance of the story
How our noble Willie fell.
How he strove to bear the banner
Thro' the thickest of the fight
And uphold our country's honor
In the strength of manhood's might.

CHORUS

True, they tell us wreaths of glory
Evermore will deck his brow,
But this soothes the anguish only,
Sweeping o'er our heartstrings now.
Sleep today, O early fallen,
In thy green and narrow bed.
Dirges from the pine and cypress
Mingle with the tears we shed.

CHORUS

Another one i found recently is A Birth Certificate shows you were born, a death Certificate shows you died, a scrap book shows you lived. One of the Founders of Creative Memories said that.

Got our Christmas tree up yesterday. {need to get a new tree skirt, but they sure aren't cheap!} There were several at the Thrift Store! I think a lot of their stuff comes from ppl who have passed away and the family just donates their stuff. So much handmade linens there!
Jodi & the girls came to help, then Jordan & Jess spent the night. Round 2 of the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse this morning... Man does Jordan LOVE that show. Had to pull it up on the disney website before it was on Disney Jr. Guess we should have gotten DVR when we got our satelite service but didn't think we'd need it. Was I ever wrong! Oh well, live & learn.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday.


DVR wasn't optional when we went with Direct TV so I couldn't have regretted NOT getting it. When we switched to Dish I just ordered exactly what our Direct TV Bill said! I love it for the nights I had to stay in the cities and COULDN'T"T watch my kind of shows at my mothers house

Anyways! Tree is up, presents are 1/2 wrapped, cards are done. Now I just need to write out all of my cards. I hope to have that done by Saturday at the very latest.

A very damp and foggy day here. Good thing I work inside! Altho I am chilled to the core right now. Brian keeps it chilly in here! To keep us awake? I don't know!
its been really foggy here too lately and super gloomy

although the sun was BRIGHT as a Summer day yesterday when we went ot town, it blinded me!


Have you ever asked Brian to turn up the heat? He may be like me and comfy at 60* (Clint says its the Witch in me and I am trying to freeze him)

Yeah over 100 I'd stay inside too! or go out to my garden and stay in the shade! Since we do not have AC And, summer only started (officially) on the weekend......
Browny had the day off yesterday so we went to buy my Christmas present. I am now the excited owner of a Canon 650D camera with a Tamron 18-270mm zoom lens. What does this mean? I have no bloody idea at the moment, This tickled me! I have no clue either! But I am excited for you!
but I am planning to learn. I am going to a 'Fundamentals of Photography' course a few days before Christmas, so hopefully we will have great Christmas photos. That is of course if the world doesn't end on the 21st as the Mayans have predicted.......
Anyways, I have clothes to hang out and a house to shut up.

Sue - I still need your addy.......

Oh boy the 21st huh? that's the day Bug and Andy and MJ are flying home.

Sure hope we get a car figured out for her by then. they had it all planned out to use FIL 2nd vehicle for the 10 days. She got her tickets, all the plans are figured out and MILs car broke down and with FIL laid up from heart surgery and Clint being in the shape he is in.. no more 2nd vehicle. So I asked my ex MIL and her bf if Bug can borrow their 2nd vehicle he said there is a bad tire on the truck, so he's gotta think about it, well it's a whole lot less expensive to fix a tire then rent a car for 10 days
