I would like to wish all of you a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy and Joyous New Year. I have a picture of the grandbabies with the man in the red suit and some pictures from my back yard with our 23" of snow that fell last weekend.

Sometimes it's just theraputic to put myself into my art. This is how my Angel of Peace came to be. My nephew and my youngest son's best friend are both serving in dangerous places abroad. I had the pleasure of having lunch with my nephew's wife and his two beautiful daughters today. He has been on my mind constantly since his deployment a little over a month ago. This is his second time serving in a war zone. My son's best friend is also in a dangerous area. His mother gave me a bracelet to wear every day to think about him. Boy does it ever serve as a reminder to pray for both of them daily! An Angel of Peace is being offered on Ebay starting tonight and ending Sunday evening. STAY SAFE GUYS!

Tonight when we walked our dogs it really felt like it could be Halloween. It was crisp and cool out there and it sure seems to be getting dark awefully early. Isabella and Boo are my latest EBay Auction and last little witchie pooh of the Halloween Season for me. I've sure enjoyed making them this year.

What a week! It started with a sister-in-law having a heart attack Tuesday but thank God she is doing great! My sister came over Thursday and we spent a day going through old family pictures and sorted them out for our siblings. We always have a great time together. I've been cleaning like a mad woman, too! I always do that before changing decorations, so I have officially started decorating for Halloween, but I'm not finished. I haven't even started on the outside. I finished up this Little Pumpkin Girl and tried to get her listed before my other auction ended, but I had to stop in the middle of uploading pictures and recharge my battery in my camera. I think it may be time for a new battery. She finally got listed though. Today, we left early and spent the day with our grandsons. What a great way to end an especially busy week!

I wanted to share this with you. I was so thrilled when a sweet customer took the time to take a picture of Ms Kitty at her new home. She arrived during a pool party. Doesn't she look sweet lounging around the pool? Many thanks to this sweet lady for sending a picture of Ms Kitty and giving her such a nice home.

Last night I listed Jack and Licorice on Ebay. I really enjoy making ride-on's and just couldn't resist making this one a pull toy for Halloween. I just might have to start my fall decorating this weekend. Making all of these Halloween creations and the little chill in the morning air has put me in the mood!

OH MY! It really has been a while since I listed on EBay! I was pleasantly surprised today when I scheduled my listing. I was frankly dreading the changes that could have been put into the process. You know Ebay changes things quite frequently, but it was a piece of cake! My first Halloween Treat for 2009 is officially listed!

Isn't he! Although he was scheduled to make his grand appearence on the 21st, our 2nd Grandson was born Friday night, the 14th! He is just beautiful from his 10 little bitty toes to his beautiful sticky-up brown hair! Our hearts are swelled with joy. Elliot Michael weighed 8 lbs 5 oz and measured 21 1/4" long. Mom and baby are doing great!

On the day that we celebrate our Independence, I want to thank all of our Hero's that have served our Country and those who are presently serving. My family and I are sending out a special greeting to those we know personally serving right now--both at home and abroad. We love you and pray for your safety.
Happy 4th of July!

This is our oldest son and his son. This picture brings back memories of when we used to take the boys fishing. On any given night, we would just throw a few fishing rods in the car and fish at one of the local ponds. I enjoy seeing our Son carry on the tradition with his son.
Happy Fathers Day to all you Dads out there!

This was the first Mother's Day without my Dear Mom and I sorely missed her. But I know I'm not alone in feeling like there's an emptiness in my heart. I was reminded by our Pastor that for many-- Mother's Day can be a sad day. I know there are many others who have felt a similar burden today. There are many Mother's that have lost their children. I am fortunate to still have my two sons, a wonderful daughter-in-law and an awesome grandson. There are Mothers who are worried every day about their children that are actively serving in our Military in harms way and cannot see them today or tomorrow (I know some them). There are many who want to be Mothers and cannot. There are some children who are sad because their Mom's just weren't good Moms. My Mom was a great Mom. I still don't know how she raised the 5 of us and kept such vigor! Yes, I truly miss my Dear Mom but I know some day I will see her again and that I am blessed every day because of her.
My husband took this picture outside the front of our house tonight. What a beautiful sunset!
