What I Think Is Cute....

Me again. Yep, two postings in one day...must be a first...It's due to the inspiration of seeing all my blogger friends devote the time day-in and day-out to their posts.

Ok...so...here's WHAT I THINK IS REALLY CUTE...

Look at these boots....oh, how cute....the girls LOVE them....have worn them almost non-stop for almost a week now....(and Ed picked them out..not me!)

Happy 2008 Holidays to You!

Warm wishes that everyone is having a safe and happy holiday season. We are all doing quite fine in this busy season and have had the great fortune to celebrate many Thanksgiving and Christmas occasions and cheer with both dear old friends and new friends, too! And, of course, it’s been quite a blast watching Sammi and Nicki really get excited about Christmas, Santa, presents, Christmas decorations, etc. There’s nothing as magical as watching 3-year olds totally believe in the magic, is there..?

Here's Sammi....(yes, in pink...)


and Nicki....

J and me with the girls....

Ed opening-up a present as Sammi anxiously looks on...

Look at the background of this pic....oh my...so many presents...they had so.much.fun. opening-up the packages...

Horse-Farm...it's all about ponies and princesses these days...


Can you spot the half-eaten carrots on the plate...?

Girls making cookies...oh, my, we made a dozen-dozen (yes, 144!!) Mrs. Smith's cookies and walked around the neighborhood and handed out cookie tins to our friends...lots of fun although I think I won't be able to look at (or smell....) another cookie for..well..at least another year...

See this big "mixing" bowl I used...and see who got the "licks?" :) Oh, and to think that we used to lick spoons growing-up!! Ugh, uncooked eggs...YUCK...what were our mothers and grandmothers thinking...??!! Best left to the dogs, I say...


Here's my sweetheart Kelse...

And high-jinks from Jessie (left) and Maddie... :) It's become quite a ritual every TGiving with Col and John and Jess and Kelse....this "high-jinks" business with the ol' whipped cream. Who started that silly business, anyways...(oh, yeah, that's right....um, I did.....) !!!
TGiving with a crew of dear friends..


Ha...I remember when Amy (on left) and Karen were in elementary school...look at them NOW...


George and the girls....(psst...George is a big ol' softie AND the girls adore him...)
Here's Ed in his favorite holiday pose....
Hugs to All,
