Blog Candy Reminder

Coffee of the Day - Maple Pecan

Happy 12-12-12 to all of you! :)

Just wanted to remind all of you that the current blog candies close on Sunday. A Valentine themed one will start up on Monday. As for craft supplies, I am still boxing up things to give away as I am able. crossing fingers I will still be able to meet my own goal of being back to crafting at the start of 2013.......

Thank you so much for the kind comments all of you have left for me, as well as the many wonderful, supportive emails. You lift my heart more than you can know! :)

I'm still resting quite a bit and not quite feeling human yet. I swear I'm becoming a zombie, but my family is too kind to tell me. wait a second. I live in a house full of men. too kind? yeah right! they gave me grief last night because I was talking skateboard, and had to text Mick to get him to prove that I knew what I was talking about. turns out they knew all along that I had a clue, but just wanted to mess with me! ;) those rascals! so yep, zombiefied I am!

Dave and I are supposed to attend a Christmas party next week, and I think this is the first year I won't have enough handmade cards to give to everyone. it's pretty traumatic, actually. but I can only do what I can do. and right now just doing for my family is top of my priority list. not sure I'll be feeling up to even attending, much less the worry over what to put on this zombie body. some things just don't seem to really matter that much right now. and then it makes me think why I should stress so much about them in the first place.

anyhow, enjoy this 12th day. it's a special day, but then every day is! :) and so are YOU!

these are pix of us getting our tree last year. thought I would share with all of you. we'll hopefully go this coming weekend to get ours for this year. we have to wait until Mick comes home from school, as it is part of the tradition that EVERYONE picks out the tree before we cut it down. in the top photo, yes that IS a mini snowball coming at me!!!!
oh my guys are all soooooo handsome! :)

Hope you feel well enough to enjoy the choosing of the tree.(I do think that is such a lovely idea) I also have only men in the family, but they are now ruling their own homes..LOL, still give me a hard time every so often, but I do miss the times of long ago when they were all at home. You take care Jennifer, and even though I don't comment often, you are in my prayers and thoughts.

Jen, you certainly don't sound like a zombie! :^) You sound like a loving wife & proud mom! Love the photo of last year's tree search. Hope you feel well enough to go get the tree for this year. But don't stress about the party--and no one is going to feel badly about not getting a card this year--they'll just be so happy to see you if you go! :^)
I wish for you and your family a Christmas full of love and laughter.
Biggest hugs, Penny

I pray for you daily -- and I will increase my efforts so that you may enjoy choosing a Christmas tree with those handsome sons. I am blessed with a son and a daughter - and each relationship is different. But the relationship with my son is SO special... I know from your blog that you treasure the time with your boys. Merry Christmas -- and prayers for your good health.
