Merry Christmas

I'll be taking a break from the blog 
until after the holidays
as we spend time
 with family and
friends.

But before I go,

I thought I would show you

a little of the 

Christmas decorations 

in our home.








I'll be back soon with 
lots of pictures
of 
Lorelai's
first
Christmas.
In the meantime,
my family 
wishes
your family
a very
MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!

What do you say?

I know that I have been very quiet here on the blog.
I've been trying to figure out what to say.
No words come to me.
All I can do is 
pray.


"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways submit to him and he will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5-6

Last week was Lorelai's six month birthday.
I admit that I didn't take a picture.
I know, I know -
bad Nana!
Well, her mom took a picture of her this
past weekend
sitting in front of the
Christmas tree
at their house.

Just thought you might
enjoy seeing
just
how big
she is getting.

A Revelation (at least to me)

Okay, how many of you have ever received a card from a business that said  "Happy Holidays"?
Everyone, right?
How did you feel about it? Did you just ignore it? Did it upset you? Or did you notice it at all?
Well,  I used to get upset -  that is until today.
You see, I was reading a letter to the editor of our "local" paper.   The writer of this letter was ranting about a car dealership that had sent him a card that said "Happy Holidays"  He stated that he threw it into the shredder  and then sent an angry email to the dealer  saying he would never do business with the firm again.  He was ranting, in his letter to the editor, that he wanted a card that said "Merry Christmas" and NOTHING else. 
This is when I had my revelation.
I am celebrating Christmas.
However,  my Jewish friends are celebrating  Hanukkah.
Both of these religious celebrations happen  during the same time frame every year.
(Now, my revelation)
How is a company suppose to know if you,  as a customer,  are Jew…

Just a quick line to say 
HAPPY 6 MONTH BIRTHDAY 
LORELAI ALEXIS!
YOUR NANA LOVES YOU SO VERY MUCH!


Busy Time

So, are you ready for Christmas?
What are you waiting for?
It's not going to wait on you, you know.
The last time I posted (about a week and a half ago) I had not even STARTED  buying Christmas presents. 
Well, I'm done!
Finished!
Even cancelled my Prime membership on Amazon.com.
(Oh, BTW, I didn't walk into a single store - everything was bought on line.  Thank you Amazon!)
Now, I still have to wrap (waiting for two more presents to be delivered) - but that is the fun part.
What else have I done?
Well, last weekend (actually Friday thru Sunday) we were up at Dowling Park. We left on Thursday evening after Melissa picked the baby up and were able to stay through Sunday morning.  We had to go up and get the camper and bring it home, so last weekend was the last time that we could before Christmas, plus the rent on the lot would be due the first of December.  So, it worked out to be perfect for us.  
It was nice to get away for a just little while. I was even able to take TWO naps. Can&#…
