Getting Ready for Christmas

After a wonderful Thanksgiving and lots of yummy food, Avery and I have decided to start getting ready for Christmas. We are going to decorate the house and start making our Christmas cards. We purchased some last minute supplies yesterday evening and we hope to make cards that express how we feel about this blessed holiday.

It's a dreary Saturday and hubby has football roaring on the telly. I've been enjoying RedRose tea with Hazelnut Biscotti creamer and Splenda. Yummy for the tummy. The tea is from England and has the best flavor. They also give you a free little animal ornament. Avery thought it was so special and so do I. I'm just crazy about the tea. Very flavorful!

I've been getting lots of rest and I feel great. God has been so good to us! I look forward to this holiday season. It will be what we make it and I have all intentions of making it special. I have so many wonderful bloggy friends and I wish I could spend time with you all. That would be a wonderful present. Until then I will be content speaking with you in bloggyland. Later.

I love hot decaf tea with Splenda too. Especially on a cold or blustery day (like today) and a favorite Agatha Christie book.
We are decorating for christmas and the weather is not cooperating but that's OK. We need the rain. Blessings ♥ ∞

I love the new picture of Avery! Happy belated Thanksgiving. PS. I posted back on my blog about putting the webpages on here. Smiles and Blessings

PS. It has been raining here in western Alabama non stop. But, I am not complaining, we sure need it.

I've been using Red Rose tea for years! It's the best everyday tea and I've given hundreds of the little animals away. Glad to hear the Christmas spirit is with you! Enjoy the weeks leading up to Christmas!

You know, I dated a boy from England whose Mum brought him up on tea, and he tried so hard to win me over, but I never learned to like it. Then I married a guy who loves it! But to each his own. Sounds like fun with your granddaughter. Blessings!

It sounds like you and Avery are having a wonderful weekend. I think it is great that you get to spend so much time with her. I know she will remember these times with you all of her life.

So sorry to hear you hurt your foot--try to take it easy!

Thanks for your sweet comments on our Thanksgiving dinner and on the ornaments:) I hope you and Avery get to make some of those fun paint-swirled balls!

I love tea but I love coffee more! Coffee in the morning, tea in the afternoon~that's a perfect combination.

Hello Mary Lou said...

Good Morning, if you see anything on my blog that you like no problem, you can use it ( you can post the recipes too.) I get most everything off the internet.

Hidy!

Had a great time in Virginia, now I'm home and trying to get my bearings!! My lap-top is in the shop getting tuned up, hope it's ready today. Dick has been sweet to share his lap-top with me!

I'm trying to decide whether to send Christmas cards this year...may just make cookies and hand carry some cheer this year!

Blessings Trish!

Okay horns are honking, I'm jumping up and down waving.....(can you see me?) You are a delight and I am so happy to have found you.

Hugs,
