Not Over It Yet


I am SO enjoying the stockings this year! I hung them up in front of the window behind the tree, since we don’t have a fireplace. I just like to look at them. (I’m not finished decorating the tree yet. It’s a work in progress.)

And look at something else beautiful! Look who was here today!

She wanted some stuff so badly, she walked two miles over the snowy road to come home.

Then she left again, walked two more miles and went back to my cousin’s house. But things are supposed to clear up this weekend and everybody’s coming home–including ROSS! Very excited here.

    Did that stuff include Mom’s homebaked cookies? The power of a teenager in need of stuff!!!

    I’m excited for you for this holiday – I think Clover and Pokey and a few other critters should join you inside for the celebration of family! Maybe the rambunctious GB?

    2 miles uphill both ways. Bet she ate a ton of cookies!

    Got our tree and all other decorations up early this year, I love it. The grand-kids have really enjoyed them, the little one (3 yrs old) ask every time he comes over “do you have other decorations up”, he thinks I put out new decorations everyday. LOL
    Hope you have a Merry Christmas!
    I have a pic of my Christmas tree on my blog, anyone is welcome to post a pic of their Christmas tree on my blog, I would love to see them!!!!

    This is in regard to a comment above (#5 I believe)..copied from her comment …..

    “Glad you are cheerful for a change/the cooking stuff is getting tiresome

    linda ”

    I’m sorry, but if you don’t have something good to say, DON’T SAY IT! What’s up with her? I have an idea, don’t read the cooking stuff if you don’t like it! I LOVE EVERYTHING SUZANNE POSTS, regardless if I actually do any of it. I’m sorry for posting my frustration, but that hit a sore spot with me!!

    It’s great that you’ll soon have everyone home. I had never thought Morgan looks like Ross, but her expression in the bottom picture reminds me of pictures you’ve posted of Ross. Is it just me or is there really a resemblance?

  14. Liesl says:

    Morgan looks so much like you Suzanne. I think teenagers are quite cute…my two amuzes me no end! Love your stockings! Ah, the joys of a white Christmas!

    The tree is looking beautiful!

    Sounds like you are going to have a great Christmas with all the kiddies at home….that’s the best.

  16. Marlena says:

    Glad your son is coming home! How long will he get to visit? I like Morgan’s hair’s cute.

  17. Sonia says:

    Excited for you to have all of your children under one roof again. Happy Holidays to you all!

  18. Ramona says:

    hahaha, they can do what they want to is what I always say.

  19. Whaledancer says:

    The stockings found, and all the kids home! Wonderful! I’m so glad Ross got leave to come home; I was hoping he would. It sounds like you’ll have a very merry Christmas.

    Glad to see I’m not the only one who hangs her stockings over the window.
