WE SURVIVED

Saturday, November 14, 2009

I have ZERO energy tonight to blog....
This is a week that I travel to do some trees, so have spent the day packing all that I will need for the entire week. I normally do that day to day, but this week I have to be SUPER ORGANIZED! We have a long day tomorrow and then do the largest house we do all season on Tuesday, but also one of the most special. I will do an entire post on it.
Here are just a few pictures from the week......This is the
fallen tree that is up AGAIN!
WE rarely put an angel on top, but are pretty sure this one kept us safe. We survived on a tight time schedule, but I would love to have a smoother week this week.



My elf that has helped me the longest...I could not make it without her.







Another tree, another day...they begin to run together..This was for a friend that has had an incredibly HARD year, so I left her house knowing that the beauty of the tree was going to make her smile. That's a good feeling.





A CUTE GINGERBREAD TREE


Love this snowman house





A TREE FULL OF SNOWMEN
This picture does not do this tree justice...



And this is what I have not seen nearly enough of the past few weeks...my youngest little grandson, any of the boys for that matter...Being Grammy is my passion, trees are just a job!

Grayson 5 months old!

If you have not checked out THIS post, be sure and read it. All comments will go into a drawing on Thanksgiving Day for one of these holiday CD's! PLUS, we are getting close to a special number in followers and I have a surprise for SEVERAL bloggers.
TIP FOR THE DAY....GREAT ORNAMENTS AT GREAT PRICES AT CRACKER BARREL!

Gorgeous as always!!

You've talked about having no drop when hanging ornaments on your trees. How do you go about doing that? I'd like to try it on my tree this year and I'm clueless! :o)

Love the different trees. I need to sort through all my numerous big plastic storage boxes to put in order for different trees. Especially like the snowman tree. I also like to use all the different things the kids have made throughout the years on our tree.

I just adore your trees! I am starting to collect more ornaments so I can try and do a tree a bit like yours! I dont' think I can do one as AMAZING as yours though!
Grayson is adorable!

Wow, you ARE one busy lady. As you push through your schedule of fallen and decorated trees and all the trimmin's I pray you are still having fun blessing others through your decorating talents.

Have a terrific time with your special elves celebrating the Baby who changed everything. May God bless you!!!
