Snow Fella's

I made these two snowmen today. I love how they turned out ! They'll be in my Etsy store later tonight. Now I need to make one for myself ! We had our first snow this morning. It was so pretty and stuck on the ground a little, but is gone now. I love the snow and can't wait for more ! We get plenty of it here in Nebraska. :-) Hope everyone had a great weekend !

Christmas Giveaway Winner !

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving ! Thank you all for entering my giveaway and for all the super nice comments on my Christmas pictures ! We had a nice Thanksgiving here. Brian worked all day, so it was just me, Gabriel, and Paige here at home cooking our Thanksgiving dinner and watching the Macy's parade. It was a nice, relaxing day. We ate around 3 and then Brian ate when he got home at 6. We were so full that we didn't even have our dessert until around 8 . We watched Christmas with the Kranks , one of my very favorite Christmas movies, while we ate our pumpkin pie and chocolate cheesecake . Yum ! So I guess you are wondering who the winner of the giveaway is ! The winner is Rambling Girl ! Here is her comment ~

Decorating by the Fire with Harry

We had a fun visit last week in Illinois and got home yesterday. My mom and I put her tree up while I was there. I think it looks so pretty . We decided to put it in an old box that she has. I think it looks so cozy ! I also had a fun day decorating with my friend Jamie at her house. Everything looks so pretty. Go check out her slideshow on her blog The Miller Homestead. My sister Kim's house is also all decorated for Christmas and looks beautiful ! I'm hoping she'll start blogging soon , so you all can see her pretty decorations ! When I got home I had a package waiting for me from Gina over at Cat Nap Inn Primitives . Gina and I did a swap and in the package was the wonderful primitive Santa that she made ! I love him~ thanks again Gina ! So this is what I'm doing today~ decorating with my fireplace DVD going, listening to my new Harry Connick Jr. cd. I lit my new Yankee Mistletoe candle and it smells so good and looks so pretty with the candle hugger I bought from KM Primitives !I wish I had a fireplace, but my DVD will have to do. It does create a cozy feel in the room and even has the crackling sounds ! :-) I love the new Harry Connick Jr. Christmas cd ! If you are looking for a new Christmas cd I would go buy this one or buy a couple of his songs on itunes! I've gotten pretty much all of my decorating done. I had to rearrange today because my dogs were bumping into my tree where I had it, causing ornaments to fall off . They ate a couple of my cinnamon applesauce ornaments that fell. I'm sure they enjoyed that treat. :-) I'll be making more anyway. I have a few small things to finish up before I take all my pictures, but here is a little preview. I included a picture of my mom's tree for you to see ! Hopefully by next Monday I'll have all my pictures done. I can't wait to see everyone's Christmas decor pictures ! Hope everyone has a great week !

Tagged, An Award, and a Last Minute Trip

Tammy from Country Girl at Home has given me this award and tagged me ~ Thanks Tammy! I am actually in Illinois right now visiting family for the week. We decided on this trip last minute and drove yesterday from Omaha to St. Louis. I think I will list the 6 things about myself when I get home on Sunday since I'll have to take some time to think of some more things to share about myself. For the award I am supposed to answer these questions~
1) Do you have the same friends since childhood?

not really~ I have kept in touch with some of them though.

2) What do you value most about your friends?
honesty and loyalty

3) Are your friends sounding boards?

4) What is your favorite activity to share with friends?
Shopping and decorating

Anyone that would like this award, go ahead and grab it ~ there are so many great blogging friends that I can't choose who to pass it on to !
I also had planned to post my Christmas giveaway today, but with our last minute trip I will have to do it next week instead. Hope you all have a great week!

Glad It's Over

Well I'm glad that the elections are over. I was getting tired of thinking and hearing about it all so much. The results were disappointing for me and many others, but my friend Jamie reminded me of this ~ God raises up kings and casts them down in His timing. That is where our peace can come from no matter what the result. We all just need to keep praying hard for America and our leaders.
