Of my gosh, I just cannot get over how much the time has flown by since 1992 when my son was born. Here I am watching him as I type this with him swinging in his old baby swing at 4 months old. I would give anything to go back in time with the knowlege I have today! Awww man, I'm getting old, I sometimes can't get over that I will turn 50 this year....

With as many tapes that I have, this project will last for at least a month, but, It's a good winter time project!

Awww...50 isn't old....It's a breeze. Time does pass entirely too fast, that's for sure ! xo

Phew! I was "running" through all the post trying to read what I could. I think I read most of them but kind of hurried through them, running out of time.

It will be sunny and in the 60's today so we might head to the lake for a walk.


Gabulldawg, sorry for your loss and I hope Snowball gets well!

Xmas365, Thanks for sharing the clip of Elf. One of my favorite scenes and that is exactly how I feel when I see Santa. I think of that scene when I see Santa and imitate it! SANTA!!!!!!!!!!!
Seawaters, thanks for the other reminder!!!



Thinking and praying for all those who are ill or having troubles.

Have a Merry Day my friends!

We were heading to Friendly's but the line was out the door, so we ended up at GC.
