It's Christmas Time!!!

Well, I haven't posted an entry in a very long time... and now that I've changed my playlist, the only way to get anyone to listen is to post something, right?!? LOL!!

I just added a few of my very favorite Christmas songs... hope you enjoy them!! Can you tell which one is my absolute fave?? OK, so I have to make a choice... oh wait, no, I don't... It's MY playlist!!! LOL!!!

The last post I did was in early October, when my nephew was leaving to Australia. Well, an update is that he's made alot of new friends there, and is having a good time. He's DRIVING there now... which is a feat, because they drive on the WRONG side of the road, there... (OK, maybe it's US who drive on the wrong side of the road, but it's become the CORRECT side for us... LOL!!) He has a job, and seems to be doing ok. Just remember to keep him in your prayers, kind of sad to be away from family over the holidays.

I'm writing out my Christmas cards already.... so if anyone would like one, just e-mail me your address and I'll send you one.

Some pics of our Thanksgiving......

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving.... Mine was wonderful!! We went to my cousin's where there were about 18 people, so we potlucked it, and there was ALOT of delicious food!! My mom took a ham and I made an apple pie (my first ever), and two pumpkin pies with the little crust maple leaves and pumpkins on them!! I didn't get a pic of those!

Well, I hope you are all doing well, if I missed anything important in your life, please e-mail me... because I'm here now. Meanwhile, I'll try to get to all the blogs this week, because I've really missed you guys!!

Take Care,


  1. looks like a great thanksgiving you had

  2. good to see you! hope you have a wonderful Christmas. drop by my blog (either or both) & say hi...i decorated my main one for Christmas last wkend.

  3. It's good to see your happy face and I love those palm trees and the apple pie too! Your scenery is so different from ours for sure. Glad you had a great Thanksgiving.

  4. Sounds like you did the same thing we did for THanksgiving. We potlucked it too. My brother, his wife, and their 5 kids....along with my hubs, me and our daughter all went to our sister's house. (It's just her and her hubs...and Toby--the dog!) The kids played outside until it started raining and hailing! lol HAIL...on Tgiving?!?!?!?!?

    I'm glad you're back! Don't "leave" again! lol :)

  5. Welcome back ... looks like you had a great Thanksgiving!

  6. good for you on making that pie, Joann! it looked like it came out great! lots of good looking food there too for Thanksgiving; glad you had a nice one!

    my favorite Christmas carol is the second one on your playlist (O Holy Night :)

    can't believe it is December already!


  7. Hey, you did good on that pie. I can't make good crust~I just can't. My mom made wonderful pies, my daughter's were even better (before she had the stroke) and my brother makes good pie crust. Fo one thing I don't have enough room in my little kitchen to roll one out. So I have to resort to store bought crust. I always sprinkle sugar over the top, before baking, because then it looks home made. Looks like your cousin has a big house for a big crowd. Glad you had a good day. Linda up here in the sun but it's only 44*
