Busy Week

Got a lot done but still more to do. Today was spent with the Princess. We saw Santa, Mommy and Tapa, then we went to lunch.
She was funny seeing Santa for the first time. Dropped off picture to Mommy then off to see Tapa for a visit at his work. She wasn't into having another picture taken.
I have to scan Santa pic then will post.
 
The couch was approved by Jack so I guess it is staying.
I am enjoying it and the Christmas d├ęcor more this year.
Will be glad though to get it all packed up and put away.
Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!!!!!

Santa's On His Way

I think his sleigh will arrive next Friday with my gift.
I ordered the fountain.
Can't wait to see how it looks. If it looks as good as everyone says it does or not.
 
Feeling Ho Hum this season since my parents are both gone. It is a difficult time for me. I do have the Princess though, and she keeps me on my toes. It has been fun having her here this year for sure. She is much more into the whole thing. She still does not want to go see Santa though. )-:
Hopefully she changes her mind. I really want her to go. It is a tradition. Oh well if not there is always next year right?
 
Tomorrow we are getting a new couch and chair. I am wondering how it will fit through the door. It could be quite the operation. We have been waiting for it to arrive for months now. Had to order it from Lazy Boy. I shopped and shopped and didn't find anything else I liked better. That was a fiasco in itself. We were able to see the chair in the store but the couch was only viewable online. The store gave us the run around, because they said we could not order it. Finally they found someone who worked there that said we could order it. I swear the people they hire now days! Ugh! No one wants to work it seems. They just want a paycheck. Anything extra required and they just say they can't do it.
So we have not seen the couch in person only the chair. We ordered both so they would match. Can't wait to see them!
This couch is leather and so is the chair. It will be much easier to care for. Our old couch/chair was over twenty years old. Still in great shape, but it was time for a change. Kinda sad to see it go, but it is going to a new home, so it will be used by someone else. Like I say it is in great shape. The chair was never sat in except when company came over. The couch is so big and it also is a sleeper. Never used that. So it will be good for someone else. I like recycling.(-:
 
I hope you enjoy your weekend. We have a full weekend planned.  Tonight is a sleepover with the Princess. Then tomorrow a couch/chair delivery followed up with a trip to see Dancing With The Stars Live on Sunday!  It will be a very busy next couple of days!

Happy Third Birthday To The Princess

Just three years ago this beautiful girl was born.
 
Where have those years gone? It has flown by so fast. I am so blessed to be able to spend so much time with my granddaughter. So many grand parents do not live close enough to see their grand children very often. I am so lucky. I enjoy everyday we are together.


She had a "Peaceman Party" as she called it, complete with a visit from a very nice officer who let the kids explore his SUV. What a fun day. She had a blast.(-: 
I told her sitting in the front seat is where you want to sit...not the back...LOL(-: The kids dressed up too as you  can see.

Cow Pie Faces

It has been a while since I did a cow pie face post.
Yesterday the Princess and I took a walk around to check them out. Here is what we found.
 
Now you must use your imagination when viewing these works of art that the cows have created for our enjoyment...

Little Feet Snowmen

Made with little Princess feet.
It was a fun project we did together.
They are on their way to their new homes.
Old jeans for their bodies. Old jean scarves. Little twig arms.
Fimo clay hats and noses. I hand stitched their bodies together with a warm and natural backs. Stuffed with real cotton. Hand stitched faces.

This Is A Cool Log Waterfall

 
 
 
 
faux log water feature
It would be perfect in my garden(-:
Oh Santaaaaaaaaaaa....(-:
