Merry Christmas!

Hello friends!

I hope that this finds all of you ready for a wonderful holiday, with family and friends.  We have a very nice evening planned for Friday, thanks to our amazing son, daughter, and her fiance.  I'll tell you all about it next week!  Might even be able to share a few photos! 

DD and her fiance, were headed through Ks. last night, and hit a deer.  They are fine, but his SUV sustained some dents, dings, and broken stuff.  Not to mention the awful sound that they have to try to forget...ugh!

I want to take a moment to thank you so much for hanging in with me the last 30 days!  DH had some surgery the day before Thanksgiving, and again on Tuesday of this week.  It's been very hectic trying to keep up with things, and I appreciate all of your nice comments. 

I finished the scrapbook that I was working on, and the lady came to pick it up today.  She was just thrilled with it, and can't wait for her handsome man to open it!  Yippee for finished projects!

I have a publication reject to show you today!  This uses a sentiment from Gina K. Designs.  You will see that it's a very simple card.  Very colorful and happy!



Enjoy your holidays, and be safe in your travels!  I'll be thinking of you all.  Some of my wonderful blogging friends have sons or daughters who cannot be home this year, as they are away from home, fighting for our freedom.  You know who you are, and special prayers will be raised for you and your children at Christmas dinner.

Our family will be arriving tomorrow, so I am going to take a few days to spend with them.  We have many blessings to celebrate, as I'm sure you do as well.

Hugs,
Patti J.

Merry Christmas to you and your family!

They will never forget that sound. I killed Bambi--while his mother watched--on an interstate in Georgia in 1995. It was horrible. So glad they are okay in body, if not in spirit!

I hope your hubby is doing well, Patti. Blessings to you and your family this season and in the coming year!

Merry Christmas Patti!

Our house has quieted down & all have left, we're just sitting down to watch some Sunday Night Football & relax...when the Lord brought you to mind. I said a prayer of peace over you and wanted to stop by to wish you & your precious family a Merry Christmas!
Take care my friend and know you are on my mind!
hugs & blessings!

So sorry to hear about your husband's surgeries, Patti. Wishing him a speedy recovery. So glad to hear that DD and fiance are OK after their encounter with the deer. How scary! Hope the New Year is full of good things!
