Last Monday, Susie at "Digging in the Dirt" had a blog giveaway…
and guess what? I won! I don’t ever win anything.
I got my package yesterday and look what goodies Susie wrapped up all sweetly for me…
Thank you, Susie!! That was SOOOO much fun opening all those little gifts. If you haven’t visited Susie’s blog, she is one of those people who loves gardening and growing things. *I wish I could grow something.* She has a ton of energy and is always working on projects of some kind. Susie is also the sister of my very sweet friend, Becky (Looking Through the Eyes of Luv). Take a moment to visit their blogs. They’re fun people.
After I opened my goodie package, Kayla and I resumed our task of putting up our Christmas tree. Kayla LOVES Christmas and Christmas decorations… thank goodness, because she saved the day. I love having my tree up, but putting it up is not my favorite job in the world. She made it so much more enjoyable.
I was so happy when Kale and Kayla decided to come for the weekend after spending Thanksgiving with her family. They got here before lunch on Friday and left today. We had lots of fun… mostly just laying around the house watching Christmas movies – which the guys thoroughly enjoyed. We cooked big, instead of going out, and just enjoyed being indoors by the wood stove.
So, now it’s Sunday night and I sit in my living room with my tree glowing in the dimly lit room… all the presents are wrapped and under the tree (at least the ones I have so far)… there are not four, but FIVE Christmas stockings hanging by the fire (we’ve added one for Kayla)…and tomorrow begins the 25 days of Christmas.
I love this time of year!
