SOME NIGHTS ARE BETTER THAN OTHERS and THESE RANKED AS SOME OF THE BEST

Friday, December 25, 2009

I know you are probably getting tired of this song,tired of tree talk and tired of hearing how tired I am. I am going to keep this blog open,as from time to time I may have some decorating tips. But primarily I will be posting from my MAIN BLOG beginning in January...maybe with a NEW LOOK soon. There are so many great blog designers that I am doing lots of blog hopping trying to find my FAVORITE. PLUS,I splurged last week and bought a new computer to use just for blogging. I am DETERMINED to post better pictures in the new year.
This has been fun and I HOPE a help to you. AND YES,
I leave my trees up for another month or so. My trees literally stay up from September through the end of January. It is just not a big deal to me. We are taking a family vacation and heading to Vail in mid January for a week of family time,snow,fun,football and making memories. It will be the boys first real COLD vacation and the last week that Jack can fly free.
(Don't worry Mickey, we will see you later in the year) I am ready for some down time and so thankful we can make the trip.
As I think about the title I chose for this blog, I think it is only fitting to share with you some of the babies in my life and the fun we have had this past week. Austin was with his Dad, so he is missing from the pictures....but the others are snapshots of our week.
My birthday was this week and we had a wonderful night on the town...and then Christmas Eve is our SPECIAL TIME! We always start with the candlelight church service, THAT is a MUST...and then opening gifts at our house. There is nothing that compares to the eyes of a child at Christmas time. THIS year was especially sweet to see the eyes of MY BOY, as he looked into the eyes of HIS BOY! Dreams do come true.

AND THEN THERE IS JACK

Hey, Love that little boys eyes! Wow, beautiful kids! Happy belated birthday!

I traditionally take the Christmas decor down Jan. 2nd. I may have to reconsider! I remember my 5 year old's reaction when I started taking it down last year. He was NOT happy! ;00

I didn't get a Jesus tree done this year, shucks! 2010 is the year!!!!!! Wish me luck!

Hi Teresa, First Merry Christmas, Happy Birthday and Happy New Year! Beautiful pictures! The eyes on that first grandson picture are phenomenal! Thank you for being one of my new faithful blog followers. It means a lot to this new blogger (me). I don't know to much about blog design...even though I am an artist myself... (it's the computer stuff I am still learning). I hope I can be more creative with things on my blog as well. I just don't want it too busy...I hope you had a successful Season and many of God's blessings await you in 2010. Your friend, Coleene
