Crafting Saturday




Saturday afternoon was family bonding - craft time. My sister Carol, niece Lorain, great-niece Aubree and sister-in-law, Priscilla joined me for some crafting at my home.  Loved the girl bonding time . We made cards, Carol sorted photos (we laughed at how young some of us looked... we may have laughed at how you looked too), Lorain worked on a cute month to month craft kit and Priscilla whips out the most adorable thank you cards I have ever seen. We diverted our attention by showing the video of Andrea's date on http://www.themormonbachelor.com/ (Please go to date #4 and "like" Andrea...if you agree with me that she's the most amazing person out there and how could you not agree with me)! We read the clever date review of Andrea on http://realitymormon.blogspot.com/  (seriously cleaver blog on these dates) had lunch ,  crafted some more and then enjoyed a little cup of frozen yogurt...oh so yummy and healthy too.  Thanks for coming and crafting with me!

A Tennessee Christmas

This is what we saw out Brittany's back window on Christmas day.


Christmas day....  Our favorite part of our trip was spending it with two of our daughters, son-in-law and adorable grandson plus being able to Skype the missing children and talk with them on our cell phones. I love modern technology!
When we came back to Utah, the best part was only having to put away under 10 Christmas items. That was the easiest after Christmas clean-up I've ever experienced since I was a child. Instead of cleaning up the house, I spent my day reading a really good novel..."Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet".  
 Next year, it sounds like we'll be enjoying a full all out Candrian Christmas at our house. I may have to put up a few more decorations!
Look at the beautiful Tennessee River which can be seen from a bedroom window. 
Christmas in Tennessee was cold!
