I finally got my ornaments out in the mail. I think most everyone who reads my blog, has received theirs, so here they are!
They might not look like much, but they were a lot of work! I had to make 12 of them, but made some extras just in case. They are on my little table that I set up in the living room. I sit cross legged at it and craft while watching TV.
I will show you the ones I received with I get them all!
Tuesday was our Red Hat party. We had a short meeting, had dinner and a fun gift exchange where you end up swapping gifts! I found a cute little elf hat that day at the thrift store so wanted to wear it.
After all, it has red in it..
|Think I will wear this when I help distribute the gifts for the Salvation Army!|
|My bff, Linda, got this picture! She didn't have a gift for the exchange, but the person who bought it insisted that she have it and gave her gift to a person who couldn't make it.|
|The decorations were festive|
Thursday was my morning at the Senior Center. There was a Christmas Cookie sale, so of course, I had to support the cause and bought two dozen frosted! They are hidden away in the coat closet. The director wanted me to do a commercial on the radio for them, but my voice is still all froggy from my cold.
Yesterday I finished up some Christmas shopping and then went by my sister who was taking care of her great grandson, Tommy! He had come over in his pj's so she kept them on him for a while.
He is a good natured little boy! About one and a half, he is at a fun age! All the toys to choose from, and he still likes the stack rings!
We finished the day with a visitation of a man who was a co-worker of my husband's. He had a large family and was such a nice guy. As we were almost out the door, we looked at many of the pictures of his life. There was a very touching poem in the center of it. It brought on my tears and I had to leave. I still miss my mom this time of year. I can't imagine losing my husband. As my hubby's uncle (the undertaker) always said, "life is sad."
