Christmas in the cabin

Had a bad cold the week of Christmas.  If hubby hadn't stepped in we would have had pb and j sandwiches for Christmas dinner.  As it was we had a nice roast, vegetables, salad and dessert!  I'm lucky to have a hubby who can take over so competently.

Lit up for Christmas decorating

Now girls, are you decorating the tree or yourselves?

Getting started

They all have to be in order...

Puzzle I finished at the Samaritan Center while volunteering.

Christmas parties galore.

Gingerbread house

Christmas party at a friend's house

A ton of people were invited.

Musical items were enjoyed

Our cozy fire at home

Our work party

Found an old round tablecloth at the Sam. Ctr for our tree cloth. Homemade bath salts ready to give away.

Selfies are the rage now.

Ooo, somebody came by I guess!

And more...Sis!

Oh my precious long locks.

Trying to blow bubbles

All three girls got a tube of long-lasting bubble stuff.

To L's for New Years

They always have a table spread with delights!
Well, as you can see, with so many parties and gatherings around Christmas, it's no wonder we all gain a few pounds! Sis again. I'm ashamed of our opulence.  Ashamed, but grateful for all God's blessings we enjoy.  Let's never forget from whence these blessings flow!

Fun and Games

Activities over the last month

Skating by the veterans' park

Rollerblades and Rollerskates


C ran a 5k race. She came in under 36 mins but of course time marches on and we had to get a pose. It was a really hot day which slowed some of us down.

I promise you I did not see this mouse as I pulled in by the garage. This is a good illustration of the simile "Flat as a Pancake",  but I'm not thinking 'food' here...

Playground with A and C.

The Nina and Santa Maria came to visit us again.

Rolling down the steep bank is fun.  We actually planned to visit the CDM but it's closed on Wednesdays!  Should have checked, right?

Garden Images

Some little things in the garden this year.

Our useless watchdog.

Dome spiderwebs

We had tons of garden and other spiders this summer.

Bottoms up!

As I said, lots of spiders around

I wonder if this means the tree is in trouble...?

The fungus circled the whole base of the tree

Preying mantis looking for food.  I wonder how many spiders he ate (this is the same bush as above with the webs on it).

The only way to cut back the weeds this year!  In the foreground are some broccoli plants

Do you see the hummingbird?  It just happened to fly in as I snapped the pic.

I love back-light and autumn leaves...

We have to brighten up the rainy days somehow...

Another spider
