Tonight John and I decorated the Tree!
John and I decorated our tree tonight. We got all the ornaments on the tree and the stained glass angel I made for the top many years ago. I have yet to put all the icicles on-some people call it rain. I put one strand at a time on and John just doesn't have the patience for that. He lets me do that all by myself. I love it because the light catches every shimmer of silver and it looks like it is winking at everyone!!
I finally found the Santa my grandfather gave me when I was 1 yr. old. That would have been Christmas of 1960! There is a price written on the bottom of $.69. It would be more than that today! I treasure this piece and always put it on the mantel. Every time I look at it, which is every day a few times a day I think of Papa. Merry Christmas Papa!!
Well I am exhausted and will bidding everyone goodnight! Talk to y'all tomorrow!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
