The tree is all up and waiting for winter to arrive.Even the girls are watching and waiting.
The decorations are up and taunting everyone.

The fireplace is ready to go.And the wanna be real snowmen are waiting.
The room is all cozy and waiting for hot chocolate.
And santa is on board also.

Itis great to see you post your Christmas decor! It looks glad to see you get back in the swing of things! I will email you so you can save my email address from there. G Mail is strange sometimes, isn't it? I actually like the way hotmail is posting uploads lately, better than yahoo. I havent
't tried posting any photos from gmaill yet. Have a fabulous day! Jan

I love all your decorations and your tree is beautiful! You can have some of my snow, right now we are under a winter storm warning and it is that sleet/snow stuff. I like the big fluffy flakes! We will see what it looks like tomorrow.

Hey looking at all that pretty eye candy! Girl you can have my share of any snow! lol lol That stuff is beautiful but down South it has a weird effect on folks...we have a strange compulsion to run to the store and by every loaf of bread and gallon of milk we can find...then our cars start sliping & sliding all over the place and end up in the ditch! So just let me bless you with my share! lol lol Thanks for coming by and seeing the Burlys do Disco!

I just recently found your blog. Love the Christmas pictures of your home.
I also wanted to tell you that I know what you are going oldest daughter, now about to turn 28, got pregnant when she was 18...just a few months into starting college. It was very hard for me at first, but we got through it together. My granddaughter is the joy of my life and I now couldn't picture my life without her in it. I'm keeping you in my prayers.
I live in Ohio and winter has come early here. We've had snow and are expecting more this weekend.
Take care,

I know what you mean about us as mothers having high hopes for our children and wanting to spare them the tears. We cried many tears during those nine months.
My daughter was so sick that she couldn't keep up with her classes and had to drop out of college. Which meant that we then had no insurance on her. Luckily she was able to become full-time at her work place. Then she found out after the baby was born that the baby's father was seeing someone else and didn't want anything to with her or the baby. More heartache and tears, which was actually a blessing in the end.
I am very proud of her...she did go back to college and worked full-time while being a single mother. I'm happy to say that she now has been married to a wonderful young man for 4 1/2years.
It was a very hard time for us at first, but we became stonger as a family bacause of it. I know without a doubt that there will be alot of belssings and joy in your life from this.
I hope you have a wonderful Holiday Season.

Everything looks so pretty - love your decorations. The girls are a hoot and Ms Cami wears a pink collar as well. We have a little bit of snow - but not much.
