Snow on Christmas Day

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. I had a wonderful Christmas I had all my kids at home and Michael came home from Christmas. This time last year he was in Iraq, it was a hard time for me know he was over there, and  was not able to be home for Christmas. My heart was filled with Joy to have all  my kids home it was like they were little again. That was a wonderful gift that God gave me. I can say I had a wonderful Christmas.

We got snow for Christmas it started snowing Christmas Eve it was wonderful it was just enough, to add that special touch to Christmas.

I have added a few pictures to show you how pretty the snow was here in TN.

Christmas Cardinals

Good Day, I hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas, I love this time of the year the hustle and bustle. It can wear you out. I have been on the go since last Friday, with finishing up Christmas card, wrapping and shopping. 

I love Cardinals they are such pretty birds.  Red is my favorite color and the different color of red that are on the male Cardinals they are beautiful.  I am amazed when I see animals and how God has come up with colors and different types of animals, he is amazing.   I would love to get up real close and capture a picture of one.  I will need to get a good lens for that or be camoflauged so I can get close of enough to them.  I have some Cardinals I bought at Joanns a couple of Christmas ago that I leave out on my mantle at home I thought I would post a picture of them
Here is one picture I got up close to one only because the baby was trying to fly the coop  and his dad was close by see the dad below
and here is the baby he or she was so cute can you see the red in the feathers
Thank You for stopping by Have A Merry Christmas!!!

I thought I would share pictures of the snow that hit our area over the weekend it was so pretty and it was freezing the wind made it feel like you had needles poking on your skin if you were not bundled up.  We were outside for a very short period of time for me to take these pictures then hurry up and get back outside even my dogs would not stay out there very long they were ready to go back in the house. 

Thank You for stopping by and visiting,

Christmas Time

Hi everyone I am so bad I have not blogged in a while I have been busy with getting ready for the holidays, I had told myself I need to make time to blog.  So today I decided I would make time. This time last year I was sad because my son was not home for Christmas he was in Iraq.  That was really hard on me, especially when he first left I could not focus on work I cried sometimes on my way to work, I looked forward to getting emails or phone calls from him. it got a little better as time went on but I kept up with news in the middle east.  But knowing he was over there was hard I wanted him back in the USA.  Well this year he is coming home for Christmas and I am so looking forward to having all of my kids home for Christmas.

  Its been cold here in TN and have had snow flurries and it is really got me into the holiday shopping.  I thought I would share a few pictures of Christmas at my house. The picture below is our Christmas Tree in our family room along with my huge Santa I love him, he is so life like I did not go all out in decorating like I usually do. I thought I would put him in our family room so we can enjoy him more. Last year I had him in the foyer.  When I would get up early in the morning to wake my daughter for school I  had to remind myself Santa is in the corner its not a person. 
Below is are Cardinals I have on my mantel in my living room.  I love Cardinals I keep them out all year. I love beautiful red they have on them. 

This is our other Christmas Tree we have in our living room I love Vintage Christmas and went with that theme on this tree. 
Not sure if I am going to hang our stockings here on the mantel

Well Thank You for stopping by and visiting
Have a wonderful Day.
