. . . February is coming people!

Since I dread February every year . .  . (see TGFIO) I decided to take some steps to occupy my mind with other things.

After talking to Tootsie Pop on the phone (some time back in the middle of January), I realized I too dreaded February for the same reasons she does and I choose to change my mind.

Filling up the blog-o-sphere with photos for February instead.

So hang on and be sure to come back and check out my entries for each day in February.  Join in yourself, if you want by doing your own photo challenge.  The best way to take better pictures, is to take MORE pictures.

what did Mrs. Claus get for Christmas?

The burning question of the year. . . am I right?

Well, Mrs. Claus is pretty hard to buy for . . .

and to be honest . . . . after years of Christmases together Santa has all but stopped trying to surprise me.  Mostly . . . because I am the biggest under the tree snoop EVER!!  In the history of present guessing . . . I'm ranked pretty high.  Not to brag or anything.  But I don't think I have been surprised except for one Christmas in 25 years.

oh what fun

It's Christmas Eve and I thought it would be fun to share one of the gifts I gave this year.  Since I already know they were received!

I had such fun with these gift cards for my nieces in Kentucky I just had to share the idea with all of you.

bww - Christmas Cookies for Santa

Every Christmas since I can remember I have made chocolate chip cookies.  I have burned up several electric mixers in the process of trying to mix the dough and have scorched lots of cookies because I forgot to set the timer.
