It’s Been A Party In My Mouth

Today was supposed to be the day cowboy and I were going to start eating healthy after all the” jillions” of calories we have had in the last few weeks. This morning we talked about it over Monkey Bread and Vanilla Wafer Cake and big cold glasses of milk. This is the way it goes every year for […]

Visiting London was such an adventure and the bonus is that London was already fully decorated for the Christmas holidays! The store displays were […]

We Had SNOW!

We had a White Christmas! It is the first Christmas snow in over 80 years in our area. What wonderful fun for everyone. In the past we have had a trace of snow on Christmas, but never the 3 inches we received on Christmas Eve Day. Now, I know many of you are laughing at the three inch part of this […]

Truck With Deer Antlers

You know you are in hunting country when you see this truck driving down the highway. Not sure if it is a Christmas decoration or just “the decorator’s touch”. We all decided the deer antlers were a nice addition! On the part of the deer… what a way to be immortalized. On my part… does this […]

 Decking the halls at our house! Decking the Halls and the excitement is building at our house. This Santa was a freebie the first year my husband were married.
