Happy Monday friends! This will be short and sweet for ya today. Unfortunately my Open House did not happen due to a freakish snow storm on Satuday, hee hee-just my luck!! It almost NEVER snows in VA in December--so it was a little strange, but the kids loved it!! I did have 5 outta 55 rsvps brave the storm & we all had fun anyhow--not much gets me down, lol! I have a few more parties this month at the house, so all is good! I sent lots of sweets off with the kids Saturday night--they both had sleepovers & fun in the snow! I am super sick with a nasty head cold that I woke up with yesterday, and can barely move my head without pain so no projects today. Most of you know that I lost my grandfather 2 weeks ago--so now I have only 1 surviving grandparent (my grama in NY). I am very thankful that I got to know all of my grandparents in my lifetime & treasure those memories. Unfortunately my husband's grandmother went into the hospital this weekend & is not expected to make it. She has congestive heart failure, her kidneys are failing & she has requested all DNR procedures (do not resuscitate & no medical treatment), so we are sadly waiting for the end. My husband is extremely close to her, she was like a second mother to him (she lived with them growing up) so this is a very painful time for him. Especially since he still has never really reconciled his father's death 3 years ago. So any prayers would so be appreciated this week. My workload this week will be fairly light as well, as we take care of family matters.
So for you today, I have a slideshow of our house decorated for the holidays. The only trees not shown are the kid's because they have STILL NOT finished them yet, LOL--they're slower than me & I do 10 of them, hee hee! Also some fun pics of some of my cats as well that you might get a kick out of! (if you get this as a subscription email, you have to come to my blog to see the slideshow--my url is www.scrapbitz.blogspot.com )
I'll be back tomorrow with some fun & quick gift ideas for ya!
