All Done !!!


Saturday Papa worked in his work shop for a while finishing up a project , I did laundry , then Papa and I   put up the outside Christmas lights on the house . I decided to get some photos as it looked pretty with all the colours !

                                              Click on photos to enlarge if you please !



          Then Saturday evening was the potluck supper it was fun and full of laughter and food Oh my there was enough food to feed an army !  Everything was home made MMM YUMMY !

Then Sunday was a day of Christmas shopping we were late shopping this year , but we got it all done on Sunday with in a few hours ! This year Papa and I are only giving each other a small gift each as we buy a lot of things we need or want through out the year ! Our kiddos maybe coming down for Christmas they live in different areas and sometimes its tuff to get them all here at the same time !

I don't think it looks to promising for us for a white Christmas as it is to rain again on and off this week and on the weekend. This time last year we were at a record snow fall and digging out for days but Christmas is still a few days away and here in Ontario Canada the weather can change in a snap !

                                                      Until next time , Have a wonderful day !

I love the Christmas tree lights looking in from outside! If you want snow, here's wishing for you a White Christmas. It would be great to have one here although it would be rare (but not unheard of) here in Tennessee!

Doesn't it feel so good when everything is finished and accomplished. Lights look so beautiful. Hope you are feeling better.

I love a good old Christmas tree at the window, and surprisingly I'm not seeing as many folks decorating the outside like i used to. Richard

Lovely lights and goes so well with your decor. Your hubby sure is a handy kinda' guy.

We had snow last December but this year so far, we will be without. It looks like so many places this year that usually have snow, wont. That can be a good thing, easy to get out shopping and to hit the stores for the sales.

We will stay in and chill out, dont do shopping after Christmas unless it online.

Hope your week is a good one!
