Christmas 2017

It was a very special Christmas Day this year. Not to say that others were not, but there was a different feeling this year that previous years didn’t quite have. I never though that I’d enjoy my kids any more then I could possibly enjoy them, yet, with each year.. my heart grows and more love over flows.

Praising God for his wonder and Love. ❤️

Random pictures in no particular order from this past week.

Christmas Tree

I just ordered a new Christmas tree from Michael’s.

Upgraded to a 7.5ft tree.

Regular price was $299

Sale price was $99

$106 with tax.

Should arrive next week. I will take a picture when it arrives. I think the sale is good until Saturday, if anyone needs a new tree.

Here is the link. 😉

7.5 ft tree

Michael’s Craft Store

Has anyone already decorated?

I still have all the Harvest decor out. We usually start after Thanksgiving with the Christmas things. 🎄

New Trudle bed

I have been looking since last year for an affordable trudle bed for my girls, and I finally found one today. $150 Not too bad! 

Looks vintage to me, but its in remarkable shape. They love it! As do I.

Here are some pictures. It’s not put together yet.  I will add another picture once it is. Probably next week because we are so busy. *grin*

Savannah Georgia

We visited one of the many tourist destinations in Savannah, Georgia. 

This ice cream place opened in 1919 by the Leopold Brothers. 

All the ice creams are home made. And it’s still owned and operated by the same family, generations later. 

I sampled several flavors before deciding on Lemon Custard.

The kids enjoyed the triple chocolate raspberry swirl and peanut butter chocolate chip ice cream. 

So if you are ever in Savannah, you must stop and try their ice creams. The prices were very reasonable too. 🙂



I was at a kitchen store and came across a very interesting knife. I went a head and bought it, as it was only six dollars. It had two points of the end, and my first instinct, was, it’s a knife to fillet fish…
It sort of looked like a fish to me.
I brought it out to the car to show DH, and he asks me what kind of knife is it?
Still not reading the back of the package..I told him it’s is a knife to fillet fish.YES, that must be it!
The next day we are at a friends house, when my friend pulls out a knife, which looks just like the one I bought.
Who says girls don’t like strange looking knives? :o)~

 I’m asked by a friend, if I know what kind of knife it is?
I told her, no. But I just bought one myself.
She asked me if I Googled it yet? To find out what kind of knife it was?
I told her I hadn’t, because what exactly would I be Googling? Strange knife?
Knowing I hadn’t taken my new knife out of it’s package, I came home and took it out of the drawer.
I decided to read the back…. And guess what?
I would have never guessed. I didn’t know they existed. I thought people used cheese cutters to slice cheese? And what the heck is up with these super sharp points at the end of the knife, that make it look like a fish?


Using Rit dye

Brown Dye

Mix bottle with salt and water-add garment

Top was white, now it's brown! Yay!

I had this really pretty top that I bought, but it was white and I don’t wear white really. I ended up buying a bottle of brown dye, and wa-la!  Problem solved! 

All you do is mix 1/2 the bottle in some hot water in a big bowl, add 1 cup of salt to it, then your garment, and stir it for 1 hour. Then wash, hang to dry and your done. So simple.:o)

Of course if I liked white, Rit also makes a dye remover, so I could make it white again if I reallly wanted too.

A Trip to my mailbox….

I thought I’d try something a little different, just for fun. I took my camera with me while taking a walk to get my mail….Here we go!!

I'm walking, she's running...


She's upset that I ran past her! lol


I pass the field..


I look up...


I pass a small tree..


I pass some brush..


I pass the church & see my son chilling out!


I am almost there, and notice some stagnant water.


A-HA!! MAIL! It was worth the trip!


She wants to race me back!!!

Thanks for walking with me today……

Challenge: If you do a, “walk to get your mail blog”–link it in the comments so I can see!!!
