AND NOW FOR THE WINNERS OF THE TREES THAT CAUGHT MY EYE ARE...........................................
LISA at MOORE'S MINUTES and TIDY MOM (don't know your name !please send me your names and addresses (annah99@aol.com) and a goodie will be on its way! Please visit their blogs. I spent some time on both and loved them. I am working on my post from our weekend trip to THE POLAR EXPRESS, which I am going to post on my MAIN BLOG! Look for it tomorrow...and then a special post from my birthday dinner this week. In between trying to post, I am wrapping, making sure I have mailed all my Christmas cards, still buying, hugging old friends (don't you just love running into old friends when out Christmas shopping), hugging my little men..Truly enjoying the season! Tomorrow night is my favorite service of the year. The Christmas Eve service is a MUST in our celebration at the Powell home.
*****Well it is 4 AM and tornadoes are spotted everywhere near us...so needless to say we are glued to the TV. One was just spotted near my son's house so they are in the hall closet with little Grayson and Austin. This will be a night of no sleep.

Be safe and Merry Merry Christmas to you and your family.

I love the way you put it with all the gifts you give...you want to show them you love them extravagantly. I am a big gift giver. Not because I want to spend lots of money or spoil or that I need to make up for something; I just love to give. It makes me happy. I love seeing people's faces when they open up something that I tried so thoughtfully to pick out. I just like the way you said it. Thanks.

God bless you abundantly.

Oh Teresa... As always your photos are so lovely! Your decorations mirror your love for the season.

I too am guilty of showering my family with loads of love! I love to give.. Makes me happy to provide for them.

I hope your family remained safe through the tornadoes!

Oh wow! You completely made my day and brought some Christmas excitement to me with this news! I'm so happy about it. Thank you so much.


You have such incredible talent with your trees and are a TRUE inspiration! And that kid's korner looks SUPER fun! Love the Disney gift wrap and big bows.

I think it's wonderful to give at Christmas. I always go overboard with my family, it's one of the best parts besides the birth of Jesus. I do every Christmas as if it's my last!!!
