It’s been several posts since I posted any pictures, and I do have a few to share. :) Yay me.
My birthday was the 4th. Happy Birthday to me.:) I thought this year would bug me more than previous years, I mean 32! When did I turn into the approaching middle age mom? I certainly don’t feel like it!
And these candy canes? Well they just looked super pretty in one of the classic ball jars I got from the farm when we were there on the 4th of July.:)
It SNOWED! If you know me at all, you know I prayed for snow for my birthday just like every year…. I only got a bit of snow, but it was snow! It did end up snowing more this last weekend. AMAZING. It was super pretty! We played in it for awhile & took family pictures in it.
This is her: for crying out loud mom, are you really in my face with the camera again? look. Isn’t she precious?
Then she got a snowball in the face. Thanks to her dad. Excelling at parenting we are. ;P
This was after she chased him down and covered in him snow. She looks so happy.:) Ornery little cuss.
the the snow kicking fight began.
then I said enough. What are you, children? Let’s go sit in front of the cardboard fireplace and drink hot chocolate. So we did.
I don’t know about you but I need new things to hang on my walls for Christmas. ;) Well I don’t really, but I do. So I am. If that makes any sense at all.
We couldn’t drag all the Christmas stuff out until after the house had been cleaned including wiping down walls. Every year after my birthday, we would get to put on the Jim Reeves Christmas record and start on the tree.
Have you ever heard of Tri-Chem Paints? They were HUGE in our family and extended family in the 80′s. I thought they were the most amazing things I had ever seen. My mom made my a quilt with all kinds of animals on it, and we had ornaments, and decor items that had all been painted with them. The plastic 2 piece candle is one of my most prominent memories of the decorations we had each year. I still actually have a couple of the ornaments that mom had painted. It still hangs on my tree every year. Charlie Brown. ;)
What is your favorite memory of Christmas when you were growing up?
