Merry Christmas to all

I love it when my friends get you know what I mean?  I have a wonderful friend here in Fort Collins and her name is Barb, she has been my walking partner for the last 4 years and I absolutely adore her.  She is one of those people who really listen and doesn't judge, and I love that about her.  Yesterday, I went to her house, and she presented me with this beautiful gift, I love it!!  She knows how much we love her cooking and baking, and she made all of the yummy goodies in this gift, her granola is to die for!!  She knows how much I love those old Christmas ornaments, and she included those!  I know that I have been blessed to have Barb in my life...some days she has been my life saver just by listening to me!  This time of the year, I know we all reflect on our lives, and I know that I have much to be grateful for.  I am thankful for all that I have been blessed with, especially for my family and my wonderful friends.  Merry Christmas to all!!

Christmas Cheer

It's the most wonderful time of the year!!!  I finally got my Christmas decorations out and decorated the house.  This year I went very simple, I only used the traditional red, green and gold colors.  The first 2 years that we lived in Colorado we got real trees and they died within a week!  The trees get so dried, even though we watered daily.  This year, we put up the tree that we usually put in Brentons room up in the living room, it is a small tree...I don't even have a skirt on it yet!!!  I am almost done with my Christmas shopping, I am never done this early!
