Hey, Sparkle. You're going to give Binger ideas for their next opera.
Hmmm...... How about a plaid sweater sewed with red and green Christmas threads?

Crown 84 -- the plaid sweater idea is classic and beautiful! How about matching ones for all the women of different ages in the family?

But what to design for the men?

Bow ties & matching suspenders? Matching sweater vests? I just don't know. What do you think?

Well I just put away one of my three nativities. I had to make a spot for the new photo frame that plays a bunch of pictures. Inlaws are coming for stakes and football so I wanted to get it up so we could all see our christmas pictures.

I have up the one I just got this Christmas.. I have wanted it for years.. the Willow Tree nativity.. My inlaws bought it for me so I am going to leave it up for a while since it is brand new!

You would hope that the level of fighting would become more refined over time. But.... no.
i am great thanks!

lol at your dumb fight, i'm always having dumb fights with my other half.

You just call out my name, and you know wherever I am, I'll come running...............!!!!

Okay, it's just a prototype and it's still a work in progress but this gives you a rough idea as to what I'm aiming for

First post of the New Year!!! Hello everyone!!! Can't believe I've been out of the loop for almost four days already...Spent yesterday in bed with an awful virus of some sort...Felt a million times better today but I guess about twenty hours of sleep oved the course of thrity-six will do that for you!

Our lights and tree are still up till next weekend! Might as well grab a little extra enjoyment!

Oh and by the way...For anyone needing a Christmas music boost anytime between now and Christmas 2009, we at www.MerryChristmasRadio.com will be spinning the classics and those destined to be! A few hours of tweaking and I'll have some big shows...An interview with Mary Crosby, daughter of the Grand-Daddy of all Christmas music makers, Bing Crosby, and interview with Bill Champlin, long-time member of the group "Chicago" and several special themed shows! By the way, if you have any ideas or comments, either PM me or send them to Jay@MerryChristmasRadio.com!

Jay
