The weather can sure put a damper on the holidays. It didn't stop our clan. The guys all got out there winter duds and dressed up the grandchildren to go out and play. It was beautiful outside.


We had our family Christmas yesterday. Each year we continue to grow and expand as the grandchildren grow up and marry. We added two new family members this past year. They're a great bunch of people!

Fun in the Sun?

Fun in the sun? Or not! But, lots of fun in the snow!! Grampa and daddy had fun playing with Emry out in the snow today! They tried out the new sled. They had a great time!

Dark Circles Under Eyes

Christmas time is such a busy time of year. The hustle and bustle of shopping, baking, wrapping and other things that need to be done. It can make a person tired, have dark circles under eyes and just be plan rung out at times. We all need to slow down and enjoy the season for what it is truly meant to be about. Spend time with your families and enjoy the church services that are provided.

Office Furniture

I have worked in an office atmosphere for many years now. Over that time I have found that it is very important to have the correct chair for comfort. With office furniture you can see a difference in the way you work and feel throughout the day. The height of a desk can also play into that. There are times that I wish my work station was just a little bit lower.

We have two new grandsons, one born on Nov. 23rd and the other born on Dec. 5th. It is so nice to hold a newborn again. It seems like they are so fragile, but the nurses and doctors handle them quite differently. I am sure they deal with so many newborns that they are used to holding them. I just love how babies can snuggle up on you and depend on you. We are very blessed.

Cancun All Inclusive

Who doesn't like to travel during the winter months? I know where we live, it is a blessing to go away, relax and feel the warmth somewhere down south. A Cancun All Inclusive is quite tempting for many. The Karisma Resorts in the Riviera Maya sound amazing! With there white-sand beaches and beautiful sunsets, a person is sure to enjoy the location as well as the accommodations. There are five different types of Karisma Resorts to chose from. The Azul Beach Hotel- Riviera Maya is on a beautiful stretch of the Bahia Pentempich beach in Puerto Moreles. It has been recently updated with it's 98 rooms and family friendly atmosphere. The service is excellent and everything is at your finger tips when it comes to sun bathing. What a great way to relax and forget about your cares. Re-energize with the Karisma Resorts.

Anilox Cleaning

There are so many different cleaners out there today. They even have canned air for cleaning out those tough to clean areas such as a keyboard. Who would have thought you could buy air? Anilox cleaning is used for degreasing in a variety of machines. It seems that what ever the need, there is a product out there to solve the problem.

Kaden Scott

We have been waiting for our new grand babies and this past week Kaden Scott arrived! Our daughter and her husband are now the proud parents of two children. Big sister Kaelyn is 2 yrs old and so in love with her little brother. Our son and his wife are due on Dec 5th with another precious grandson. We are anxiously awaiting his arrival! We feel very blessed!

Free Web Directory

Boy, it is really something how technology has changed our lives. Everything seems to be at our finger tips now. What every you are looking for, it is easier then ever. If you are searching, there is a free web directory. If you want to just browse, it is fun and quick. I sometimes wonder what we ever did before the internet. I know most things took a lot more time. The world is moving at a faster pace now.

Anti Wrinkle Treatment

I was having some problems with my eye glasses today. I decided to call up my optometrist and see if the gal there could adjust and tighten my frames. I've known this girl for many years. We got to discussing how we are aging and what we would like to do about it. I know a person can try an anti wrinkle treatment or something more invasive like surgery, but I have a feeling we will just grow older gracefully.

Personalized Jewelry

Anyone that knows me very well, knows how much I love jewelry of all kinds. I think that jewelry is a wonderful gift idea also. Personalized Jewelry is a special gift in my eyes. It is made personally for the special individual. It's also a great idea for gifts given at a wedding. I did that for those who I had asked to be in my wedding. It's something a person will always have to remember.

Myrtle Beach Condo Rentals

About four or five years ago we took a trip down to Myrtle Beach with our daughter and her then "new" husband. We had a wonderful time. I wouldn't mind looking into the myrtle beach condo rentals. It's a beautiful location with a lot to do. My husband and son-in-law sure enjoyed the golfing down there. My daughter and I enjoyed shopping and laying on the beach. It's a great place!

Christmas Time

Isn't it fun to watch children at Christmas time? They are in awe of most everything. Our grandson Emry was enjoying their tree and all of the lights!

Las Vegas Packages

It's getting to be that time of year when my husband and I start to think about traveling. We enjoy getting away some in the winter months. The cold and snow get old. You can find some great deals on line such as las vegas packages. We have visited there one time and would like to go back again. It sounds warm and inviting.


My daughter and daughter-in-law were both expecting babies this year. Our daughter recently had a baby boy and our daughter-in-law is due any day now. Our daughter-in-law Diana really wanted to have a baby shower for our daughter Jenna. She held it back in Sept and had a cute theme for it. Jenna is a teacher so Di thought it would be neat to ask guests to bring books of their choosing for the baby. It was a neat idea.


Well, it's nearing the Christmas season and the stores are busy. My son's through out the years, have enjoyed playing the XBox. The company continues to progress, make improvements and bring out new games to play. Every time that a new XBox machine is created, they think that they need to have it. Our youngest son has set outside of a store for hours, freezing I might add, to purchase the newest machine. It's just crazy.
