The Simplicity of Christmas

A simple set of snow covered Christmas wreathes adorn my barn doors...............

..........a snow covered sheep named Abby that warms my heart on a winter day.

May the true meaning of Christmas find its way into you home this holiday season and remind us all that it is the simpliest things that make the greatest gifts of all!

Wishing Everyone a Very Merry Christmas!

Dixie & I Build a Tree

Nineteen years ago I planted this little 2 foot evergreen tree that I bought.  Nineteen years later it has grown into what I think is the perfect Christmas tree.  Unfortunately, due to my lack of height, having not cleared five feet in 43 years, and even with the help of a ladder, I can not successfully decorate the tree without breaking one of my limbs. 

However, with the help of Dixie and photoshop technology.....................

..............a little magic is always possible!  Now if I spend a little extra money a month, photoshop will let me put lights on my tree;)  

So with 3 days 'till Christmas Eve, I baked 2 big batches of cookies including a triple batch of chocolate thumb prints cuz my sister Jen over at My Brown Newfies always makes a mess of hers and mooches off of mine.  I am a bit behind in baking because I ended up with some nasty stomach virus that put me out of commision for 2 days. Tomorrow is some last night shopping and maybe 2 more batches of cookies.
I refuse to enter a panic mode.....if it doesn't get doesn't get done:)
