Happy Thursday, Riders!! Jan, it's great to see you on the bus!!

I have two more boxes to cut out now. I hope I can get them done today. I have Maddie, and that interview is at 2:30 plus Eddie is sick. Does it ever end? LOL! Oh, and I already uploaded my TSC card because I don't know how things will be tomorrow. I will get on the bus early (for me) to give the new TSC. Blessings to all!!

Well, the licensing worker just called to cancel our appointment because there's an emergency in one of the other homes. Now, my first interview won't be until Dec. 27th, with the second one on the 29th. If we can't meet on the 30th, my third interview won't be until the week of January 9th. That's how it goes. Now, I'll try to get those boxes finished when Maddie takes a nap. Life goes on.

Silly, I have to be careful since my DGD can't have ANY gluten. You know you have find gluten free turkeys? I don't know what they do with hams. My DD says she will help with the food since they have to be so careful because of Emily. I'll let her decide between turkey, ham or beef.

Hey I got two cards today from my sistahs! Silly, you did a beautiful job on yours with all that embossing and Greenie, I love the way you cut and folded back those circles!! Gosh, you gals sure do lovely work!! I won't even get to mine until this weekend!!

I had to upload my challenge card early cuz I wanted to get it in the mail tomorrow. This was a really quick, easy card!

CA, that kitty sure is cuuuuttteee!!! How does it get along with Pipsqueak?

Hubby is wrapping presents and I'm making cards. It's nice to be together in the same room. His therapist pushed really hard on his shoulder muscles on Monday and by Tuesday, he was all bruised! The therapist forget Mark was on Coumadin! Needless to say, he will not be doing any muscle stretching by massage the rest of this week! Or so hard! Heehee! Poor Mark! He is getting sooooooo bored! Hopefully he can go back to work the 2nd week of January.

Oh, Cuz, Gypsy is so, so adorable! She looked quite content in the picture - how does she fair with Pipsqueak? Tell Eddie he's aces in my book for rescuing Gypsy!

Hugs to all of you ladies!

Gypsy has made herself at home here. She loves Eddie, and Pipsqueak and Pooky both play chase with her. She's very lovable. Eddie just couldn't leave her in that tree to freeze to death the other night.

Kathy I am right there with you. I'm glad Eddie rescued her. Anyone who is an animal lover is a ok in my book. Did you get any snow in the last couple of days?

Lesley you're a sweetie. You are a blessing.

Greenie your card is just beautiful. Its hanging up with my others.

Pat are you home? Was your trip great? I know it was because you were with your kiddos.

Shirt you must be busy because I haven't seen you on here for awhile. Hope you are feeling good.

Jan it's nice to see you on here.

Wendy where are you?

Good night all.

Default TSC1223

Next Friday is the day before Christmas Eve. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions? We like to have special flavored hot chocolate with whipped cream and maybe even a candy cane. We used to go to a Candle Light church service when we lived in California, but they usually don't do that here. Sometimes they get together at one of the pastor's homes and sing carols and light candles. When the kids were little, we left out cookies and milk for Santa. Anyway, what traditions do you have for Christmas Eve?

Make a card that represents your Christmas Eve traditions AND you MUST include a rub-on! Please explain why your card represents your Christmas Eve tradition in your description.

That's it! If you have to upload early because you will be busy next Friday, that's certainly understandable.

TSC1216 is to make an all white Christmas card. One other color is OK, but keep it to a minimum. Also, it must be at least three layers. Refer to post #750. Have fun!!!

Hello Sistahs! Been a bit busy with Mom. She's getting a little more forgetful and I've had to go rescue her 3 times now as she drove herself somewhere and then got lost. Pressure is on to find a new place for her to live that is closer to me. I have received so many beautiful Christmas cards from y'all and I want to tell you thank you. I am sorry but I will not be sending out cards this year as you can guess, I'm pretty tied up. Whew. Congrats to Les on the great news her family is growin!!!! Congrats to CA for having such a wonderful son like Eddie. So proud of him for his compassion. Heard from Pat and she had a wonderful time!!!! I really enjoyed this weeks challenge but I blew it. I forgot that we were to keep the color to a minimum and I didn't remember to do 3 layers. Am I fired as a Twisted Sistah????

Tater you had three layers. Your c/s, vellum and your die! You have a lot on your plate. I sure hope you can find a good place for your Mom soon. It's such a worry when their minds start failing. I'm sorry you and your Mom are going through this. Christmas cards take a back burner to all you have had to worry about. You have been through the ringer. I just want you to have a nice Christmas with your family.

CA wow your challenge is really a challenge! It should be fun.

CA, my mind is already racing trying to come up with a good card for next week - I am sure I will do it earlier because it will be crazy busy trying to do all the last minute stuff!!

Hope everyone is keeping their peace about them with all the Christmas preparations in full swing! Praying for you all to be blessed beyond your wildest expectations, and for good family times over the holidays.

Big Hugs to all - I am cleaning up a tornado in my living room!! Ha hahahahaha!

I found a Christmas Eve tradition on a blog. They make "Reindeer Dust" (oatmeal, sugar and candy sprinkles) and sprinkle it around their yard to attract Santa's reindeer and so Santa can't possibly pass their house! Cute! I can just imagine the little ones running around the yard making sure they get good coverage! LOL!

Well, we don't have ants and other insects this time of year around here because it's too cold. Maybe it's another method of feeding the birds! LOL!

I feed the birds. There was 2 different kinds of woodpeckers eating today. I love to watch the little Nut Hatches. They run up and down the tree like busy little bees. I have a lot of Cardinals. Tomorrow night we are going to a little Christmas party with all of our closest friends. The ladies house we are going to always makes pillow boxes and fills them up with birdseed. She gives everybody one as they leave. Its to feed the birds Christmas day. It is a Swedish tradition.

We are going out to dinner then everyone is coming here for coffee and pie. I made pecan, lemon, bananna and pumpkin pies. Surely they will find a kind they all like.

Silly, I just gained 5 lbs drooling over the computer while I thought about those wonderful pies. I am not a baker.

Things have been busy here as I am sure it is for all of you. My mojo is not surfacing. That is what happens when this old gal isn't able to sleep.

It was good to come here and catch up with what all of you are doing.

Congratulations, Lesley, on getting another grand baby.

CA, you sound as busy as always. Made me smile think of Eddie getting that Kitty. How sweet.

Braticus, you being good up there on the top of the bus?

Tate, I hope you find a place for your mama soon close to you so you have less worries.

Green One, hope you got all the things done that you needed to do, now that you are all decorated up.

Kathy, hope you had a good trip over to Lincoln.

Can all of you believe that once upon a time, I lived with in 10 minutes of where Kathy lives? Oh, how I wish I had met her then.

It is time for sweet little Bella to get here so I better get off of here and get ready to have a fun night.

Hi, Jan and Wendy.

Hi Tater!!

Just came from your TSC card and I am going crazy trying to find the die you used on your card - shown here:
Golden Christmas by Tater - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers.

Is it still available in your area - I will forward money to you if you can grab it for me - or any other sisters that might be able to locate it - what is the name of the die - that might help me to track it down too if you can't find it. Thanks so much if any of you can help me!!

LYMI!

She gives everybody one as they leave. Its to feed the birds Christmas day. It is a Swedish tradition.

We are going out to dinner then everyone is coming here for coffee and pie. I made pecan, lemon, bananna and pumpkin pies. Surely they will find a kind they all like.
Drooling here over those Pies, Silly!! I can't have the pecan, even tho' I love it, but any of the others will do well for me!! YUM!! Have fun with the ladies!!

Lesley, so tickled you have another grandbaby in the way - means another baby shower, LOL!! So happy for you, and of course for the parents!
Got your card today - Thanks so much - I LOVE IT!!

CA, love hearing about Gypsy playing with your Pip and Pooky. I can imagine it is Eddie's favorite thing to do now, watching them run around underfoot while you are trying to keep track of Maddie and get ready for Christmas!

Brat, I am sure you have more than your share of things to get done in time for Christmas and that is why we haven't seen or heard from you other than a card in the gallery - just enjoy the family time - it goes by too fast!!

Kathy, I was so happy to get your email yesterday - I know you are always creating cards and I bet there is some baking on the near horizon, or are you already done? Your cards have been blowing me away. I only have 1 more challenge to do for ODBD - going to miss those gals - it was a great experience!!

Shirt, great talking to you today, glad we got the chance to catch up and you got some rest - finally!! Taking care of those fur babies is tough work - give Tig a squeeze for me !!

Tater, Sylvia, Chrissy, Pat, Jan and Wendy, hope all is well with you and you are almost ready for Christmas!
Everyone, please take care of yourselves and let the Peace of the season reign!
LYMI!!

Shirt you'll have to tell me your favorite pie and maybe I can bring you one this spring. I love to bake when I have time.

Kathy you went to Lincoln Nebraska? Friends or family or just for something fun? We went to Fort Robinson on a trail ride with the Paint Horse Assoc a few years back. It's in the nw part of the state. It was beautiful but was it ever a long drive. I'm not into long drives. Probably because we made so many trips when I was a child between St. Louis and Los Angeles.

CA I wish you were here to have a piece of pecan pie with me!

Lesley if you have never had bananna pie you are living a sheltered life! I forgot to congratulate you on the new grand baby to be!

Brat I know you are busy but we think of you and pray for you.

Sue only one card left. Kind of sad but I know you've had a blast while making some beautiful cards.

Tater hope things are going well for you,

Wendy and Jan hope things are going good.

OK, my mom is already tucked in for the night. She went to bed early. Eddie led her to her room and she argued with him saying, "This is not where I sleep! I'm going home!" Then she said, "Carroll! Where do I get off the bus?" That made me think of you guys.

Night time is the worst for the Alzheimer's. To be on the outside looking in can be funny at times, but at other times it just tears your heart out. Anyway, Eddie set her straight. She got herself organized with her sheets and blanket, and Eddie turned out her light and shut her door. He's such a good boy. He already has his own stuff to deal with, and then he has to put up with us. What a life!

CA, God bless that sweet son of yours - he is mature beyond his years, with all the life experience he is getting while growing up. Bless his sweet heart - was so glad I got to meet him, even though he doesn't talk much around people he does not know, you can see he has a gentle spirit, passed onto to him as he grew up!!

Sue, not sure what Tate's die is, but there is a SB fancy tag that's similar.

Dog gone it, all this. Talking of pie has me hungry now. DH was going tongo get a pizza, but decided to watch tv first. He wanted to order the pizza at 8:00. This round gal does not need to eat all that dough so late so I skipped eating. Now the old belly is growling.

Silly, DH and I love coconut pie. The banner pie sounds yummy, I like them, too.

Thank you. It's hard for me, but I'm not sure if any of it really bothers her. Sometimes, in her confusion, she takes a wrong turn and almost goes into the garage to get to her room and she laughs about it! She has said, "Ha ha, I almost went into the garage! Now, where is my room?" Then, she forgets within 15 seconds. I know because, once we have gotten her to her room, I've said, "Now, isn't this better than the garage?" (just trying to make a joke), and she said, "What the heck are you talking about?" I'm telling you, it's actually comical at times. Every day is an adventure! Yet, it's still hard for me to see the woman I knew to be who she's become at times. Sometimes she seems to be caught between what's real and what's in HER world, if you know what I mean. Yes, Eddie is so much help.

Did I tell you? He passed the Math Proficiency test??? It's one of the ones required in this state to graduate! The writing part is the worst for him but MATH! Wow, I'm so proud! For an FAS kid to pass that at all is just amazing!!
