Seasons Greetings!


Mornin' Scamps and Vamps... this is a momentous occasion. :) My last blog of 2006. When I write this next time it will be January 1, 2007. Hard to believe!

We have a houseful of company right now... I've included a photo of our immediate clan at the top of this blog. We were going to open presents tomorrow morning, but there was a mass revolt... I was outvoted, and now we're opening all the loot in just a little while.

But first we have to eat the coffee cake that's getting ready to come out of the oven. Yum!

This blog goes out with a special wish to all my online and "in the flesh" friends for a very Merry Christmas...

And to my Jewish friends - a Happy Hanukkah...

Part 2: Well, I didn't get finished... had to stop for opening presents. Now the livingroom floor is buried under paper.

It is beautiful here today... blue skies and very warm. Doesn't feel like a white Christmas, but it's great for "playing" outside.

Hope everyone gets lots of good books for Christmas, and more importantly - lots of time to read them!

Happy Holidays to one and all!

Merry Christmas to everyone. It is hard to believe that we are only a week today. I will be having the Christmas dinner at my house again this year, for my parents and sister.

Hope that everyone has a safe and happy Christmas

Tons of hugs to you all

Happy Holidays everyone! This year has flown by fast.

I did some more shopping today and still have a few more things to get.

Hope everyone has a great holiday!

Merry Christmas! Great pic! We will open our presents on Christmas Eve. Then the kids open Santa's gifts on Christmas Day.

I know what you mean about the weather. I got home from work and picking up the kids and had to start baking for teacher gifts. It's 77 outside and sunny! And I think I'm going to have to turn on the AC.

Merry Christmas, Janice.

Merry Christmas everyone....

I wish it would get just a bit colder, it doesn't feel like christmas, heck I wore a 3/4 sleeve shirt to work today. strange weather.

Going over my sisters for christmas this year. Just came from the store buying my items to make something.

Blessings to all.

Janice, Oh I so know about wanting to open early! I remember when we were first married and taking a trip to see my family a week before Christmas because i'd be spending Christmas with his family. So my family is so stuck on opening only Christmas morning so that when I visited, no one would open the gifts, LOL. When we had the kids it was hard to travel but now they are older so they more patient with opening them, but us adults aren't LOL.
Merry Christmas Janice and all!

Happy holidays! I hit 7 stores in 3 hours last night, and I think I'm just about done! Yay! Now is the fun part...giving out the gifts. It's so much fun, isn't it?

Diana said...

Happy holidays!

Janice, that is a great photo. Your youngest granddaughter looks absolutely adorable with her head half hidden by the Santa hat. Too cute. I hope you had a lovely time with your family.

Thanks ladies, for dropping by to comment. My houseful of company has cleared out, and it seems awfully quiet.

Before they left, I had my younger daughter pick a number... she picked 6. That's YOU, Judy! I'll pop your prize in the mail. It's a Let It Snow pin...

Merry Christmas to one and all!

Janice

The prevention of underage gambling and identifying and helping problem gamblers is a core objective in running an integrity driven online gambling operation. Gambling at blackjack, or any other Online Casinos Extreme game for that matter is a great form of leisure and entertainment, but for some it can potentially be dangerous
