Wishing You a Happy New Years!

Christmas is over and we made it through another year. We went to my borther's house this year. It was great, the weather was good just a little cold. In 2009 we will remember that we lost a few close friends this year and Scruffy was diagnosed with Diabetes. But we have to give thanks for being healthy and having such great friends and family that have shared special moments with us this year.

Here are a few more pictures to finish out the year. These are for a challenge at My Sketch World.

Celebrating the Holidays!

This weekend we were able to visiting some favorite spots that decorate for the holidays. Mom and me went to the Bellagio to check out the xmas decor in their Atrium. Beautiful as usual! This is a great way to document all those thing you do through the holiday season. I am using these photos as part of the December Challenge at MSW. Click to visit My Sketch World.

Tom and I went to the Ethyl Ms Chocolate Factory where they decorate the desert garden with thousands of xmas lights.

MSW December Challenge

Here are more photos for the MSW December Challenge. This is a photo of our finished Christmas Tree. We have a small tree since its just the 3 of us, no kids and Tom and I will visit grandchildren so we go out and about for Christmas. This year we are planning to go to Lake Havasu to spent with family.

Here is a photo of our snowman decor we have outside.

Here are two photos of me making a Christmas card.

These are 3 cards I received in the mail yesterday.

More to come as I am finding this is a wonderful way of documenting all those little things we do around the holidays!

MSW (My Sketch World) December Challenge

The challenge this month from My Sketch World is to post photos of various Christmas activities. Here is the first of my photos! This first photo is me and Santa, who showed up this morning in the office. Here is a link to My Sketch World blog, check it out!

Here is my office door decoration, Happy Holidays from a holiday banner swap on CMB. I love the way this banner came out.

I wasn't going to put out little tree as its just the 3 of us (Mom, Me and Tom) and we had decided to go out of town for Christmas to visit family and then just at the last minute started to put it up.

Here I am putting up the navity scene.

Here is our outdoor decorations and our little tree we have out front. Below is Tom and Scruffy standing behind the tree.
