Where's the Grinch??? Not here......

Aren't these wonderful. A gift from one of the kids from the church. And she made them. Basic tumbled stone tiles from Home Depot. Stamps, black ink, glitter glue, and spray sealer. simple and effective and I love that Ms Ashlyn made them for me.

O Holy Night is my favorite Christmas song. Has been for years. So the words on the star are especially meaningful to me. I am not sure where to display these.

Last night I took care of me. I am still fighting the effects of the joint pain and I took time to just rest last night. My body was screaming for that after my weekend. I read and puttered around. And just laid around and rested. And I was in the bed reading by a little after 9pm. I feel a lot better today.

We have the plan for the last of the shopping. And Dad and I will finish that all up on Wednesday night. I do have a few gifts to come up with, but they are wants and not needs.

If you are looking for a quick and easy gift for a teacher or aquaintance - cruise over to my sidebar. Amy at Inspireco has posted a tutorial for a yo-yo tree that is sooooooo cute. I can see some of those happening for next Christmas.

Please remember our troops - many will be apart from their families this season. As I spend time with my family and friends - I will remember - I will pray. A huge thank you to our military men and women for the committment they have made.

Merry Christmas and blessings to all.

That tree is adorable. Thanks for directing us there. Definitely on the list for next year. At this rate I think I'll be starting Christmas projects in March!

I hope all of you and yours have a great holiday and stuff yourselves with southern delights and drink lots of southern cheer. I wish I could be there with you in Georgia.
