It's snowing I love it.Santa is looking out the window with a big smile on his face.This is his special time of the year.This is an old Santa my daddy bought for my mom at a flea market.He's about 5' tall.It was summer time then around 1990 not sure of exact date.Dad always goes one way and mom the other.He usually just skips through but mom she takes her good old time.Well dad saw this bought it and stuck it in the car in moms seat.Well when she was walking to the car she could'nt figure who was sitting in her seat.When she saw it was Santa she just busted out laughing.
I get my decorating from my mom.Every year she had poor dad up on a ladder putting lights all around the house outside while she did the inside.He did'nt mind cause he knew this was her thing.Mom and dad were the same age and she passed away when she was 75.So her last Christmas with us she was 74 and dad was 74 when he did all that climbing and outside decorating.They truly loved each other and cared about each others feelings.
This is just a few of the special memories I have about mom and dad.They are both gone now mom in 93 and dad in 98.
God truly blessed me with the most wonderful parents.I love and miss them so much but I know I will be seeing them again.
I also got a few pics of my kittens in their first snow.....

I had my birthday on the 25th.I have to take pics of my present from my son and hubby.Its one of the faux fireplaces.I love it.I wanted one for years but would'nt get one.With my hubbys health we can't have a real one any more so this works fine for us.It looks so real unbelieveable.The kids got me things for me and for my house.They know I love candles needless to say I got those a light up makeup mirror(eyes aren't what they use to be lol),and other things I was really surprised.I am so blessed to have such thoughtfull children and grands also a couple greats lol.
I got all my rooms cleaned and that was such a worry.It's something how things can work on your mind and you don't even realize it.Every time I thought of doing something I really wanted to do like dolls or crafts.First thing popped in my mind was these rooms I really needed to take care of.My bedroom, our sons ,and my doll room.I really did'nt finish them since we moved in 1 yr ago.Well they are done and what a relief feels like a ton off my shoulders.
I don't have pics this time but will post some in my next post.Have a great day and blessing to each of you...................((HUGS))

It is so cold and windy today a good day to stay in with a hot cup of coffee and work on dolls.This is the time of the year I love the most.The leaves are turning and starting to look so pretty.I'd like to start putting some decorations up by this weekend.Just seems like there's not enough time in a day to get everything done.
A cat thats been living under our house (she adopted us).Had 5 kittens and Ibrought them in and have been taking care of them.We are trying to find them a home.They are adorable and so playfull.I'd like to keep them but can't keep all.We are keeping the cream colored one.He's the odd ball of the bunch.
They are so comical and playfull.our little dog would chase them around playing with them.Now they turned it around and chase him they have a ball.We do too just watching them.I have a friend thats trying to help find homes for them.I sure hope she can cause they would be so much enjoyment for some one and deserve a good home.

The one on the left is after and the one on the right is before.....
I still have boxes I am unpacking 1 year after we moved.I came across a doll I had started long ago.I did'nt like how I had done it before so took all the stitches out and redid her face just to see if I could do it better.She turned out kinda cute.If you look close you can see where I moved her nose and mouth stitches,but thats ok shes my practice doll... I don't know if it's the heat or what but I just can't seem to settle down and just finish some of the things I have to finish up.I keep jumping from one thing to another which makes me feel like I am not getting anywhere.I don't know if anyone else gets like this or not but I don't like it.Hopefully next time I post things will be calmer here and I will find myself lol....
Have a great weekend.............................

........My thighs were stolen from me during the night a few years ago. I went to sleep and woke up with someone else's thighs. It was just that quick. The replacements had the texture of cooked oatmeal.Whose thighs were these and what happened to mine? I spent the entire summer looking for my thighs. Finally, hurt and angry, I resigned myself to living out my life in jeans. And then the thieves struck again.My butt was next. I knew it was the same gang, because they took pains to match my new rear-end to the thighs they had stuck me with earlier. But my new butt was attached at least three inches lower than my original! I realized I'd have to give up my jeans in favor of long skirts.Two years ago I realized my arms had been switched. One morning I was fixing my hair and was horrified to see the flesh of my upper arm swing to and fro with the motion of the hairbrush. This was really getting scary - my body was being replaced one section at a time.What could they do to me next?When my poor neck suddenly disappeared and was replaced with a turkey neck, I decided to tell my story. Women of the world, wake up and smell the coffee! Those 'plastic' surgeons are using REAL replacement body parts -stolen from you and me! The next time someone you know has something 'lifted', look again - was it lifted from you?THIS IS NOT A HOAX. This is happening to women everywhere every night.These same thieves come in my closet and shrink my clothes! How do they do it????
WARN YOUR FRIENDS! P.S. Last year I thought some one had stolen my boobs. I was lying inbed and they were gone! But when I jumped out of bed, I was relieved to see that they had just been hiding in my armpits as I slept. Now I keep them hidden in my waistband.
LOL have a great day !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We have the dirt around,but have to add the waterfall.We should have that done by the weekend.It has been rainning so much we can't finish it now.
In the mean time I have been practicing on some doll heads.Finally I think I have the eyes going the way I want them.I just cut out a new doll and got it sewed up this morning.So hope to have her together tonight.
Here's a couple heads I have practiced on.One has eyes to small to high other is to big...
Well have to go make some lunch.The kids only had a half a day,and same tomorrow with that being their last day in school.Hope you have a great day God bless...........
