Tis' and Twil' be The Season!



Dont' you just love Christmas lights! No....this isn't my house, but it could be!
I drove through a neighborhood close to my house and coveted their decor' !
Bob and I use to do the Griswald Christmas house each year, we even had over 7000 lights once,
but since we will not be home this year for Christmas...

I will enjoy "others" hard work and display of "the nativity"
Don't get me wrong! I was so nice to donate my "old" tree to the office this year! (thinking we would buy another tree for our house......)
I can enjoy a little tree deco at the work place...

Now although my house isn't Griswald trimmed this year I did manage to place a little tree on a table....I didn't want the grandkids to think I was a Scrooge or anything!


I have improvised with decorating my office instead, because that is where I spend most of my precious time


I do "BELIEVE" in "CHRISTMAS"
Don't be fooled by the BAH-HUMBUG,

WE traveled to Erda to see the grandkids and give them their presents.
Ryan opened a guitar which Owen enjoyed.....

They played with the new farm animals and Laruen dressed like a princess and ....Owen loved his new "Spider man" outfit.

Lauren is obsessed with "Tinkerbell" and got sheet and a new "Tink" pillow

This year Papa won't be able to get away with being the fully dressed Santa....

The kids would know for certain this year it was Papa!

Let me tell you know, take all those expensive gifts back....and buy stuff that is 5 bucks or less because they love that more than the expensive gifts! Or even better yet, find some toys they have completely forgotten about and wrap them up again! hehehehe NO...Nataile, Mike, and Brad....I HAVEN'T DONE THAT ARE YOU KIDDING! just sounds like it would work though!


The Texas Long Horn Bull and the Ranch Horse ($5bucks) were a huge hit!


This trip for me was a 24 hour turn around and I didn't get to spend as much time as I would have liked to, but the kids were OHHHH so cute....including my big kid, thanks Mikie for posing with your mama! I love ya!

And I love this big guy to my "sparkie" (oh too much information here hehe)

YES, it SNOWS in St. George.....not like you can catch a snow flake on your tongue



but you can on your hair!

Until next post......LIGHTS OUT! (this pic was taken during the last full moon when the moon was at it's closest radius to the earth since 1993. It was huge and beautiful)

Hey, you did a great job at holiday decor! Loved it. Besides, the true meaning of CHRISTmas isn't the decorations, right? Where will you be for the holidays, since you said you won't be home? I'm longing to be 'home' but will settle for celebrating here.
Love you!
ERMA ;)

I wish you would have told me about the $5 gift thing back in July when I start my shopping for the kids. Every year I say I am not going to spend much money and every year, I find things the kids just "have" to have. Oh well, what are Oma and Papa's for anyway but to spoil the little ones?

Loves it!! The Griswald's live next to us too! One day we'll put lights all over but for now, our neighbors do enough for the both of us! I love your sparkie too! Give him loves for me!
XOXOXO
