Sharing the Season and Blessings from our family.

We have been Blessed in many ways. Times are tough with job lay offs and my illness being so severe this year. Still, I have nothing to complain about. We have a roof over our heads, food in our bellies, and a few gifts for family around the tree.

 We were able to enjoy a wonderful night with family and friends at the Zoo Lights. We also had a day at another friends with cookie exchanges and the grandson making his first ornament and reindeer food with other children. It's been a fun December. Weather has been wonderful enough for me to get out and do these things, that in it's self is a huge Blessing. 
I was able to get in my craft room earlier this week and do a little crafting for family and friends. Hope you enjoy the new cards and the Gift Card holders.  
Entered the cards into a few challenges. I have those listed below.
Can't share all my goodies I made... Some family and friends view my Blog...
They have to wait until later to see what is in store for them.
I haven't gone all out this year on decorating. I have chosen to be less stressed and take more time to enjoy my grandson and family. Time passes fast and you do not get those years back. I think my daughters have enjoyed the less stressed me as well. Enjoy the pics from our outings. Most of all, I wish each of you a wonderful and blessed Christmas. 

 A very happy Grandpa!

Our elf got a little mischievous this year and Trevor helped his 
Mom & Dad decorate their tree.

Make a few memories and then pass those memories on with a scrap page or two. The joy of being able to look back at Christmas pasts and share the good, funny, and sometimes sad has put goosebumps, smiles, and giggles in my heart this month. Pass on Love, Peace, and Happiness to all you come in contact with. Never know what your kind word or simple smile may bring to another persons soul.  
Merry Christmas to all.

Happy with Santa. (a first)
