Hi again BJ, I just read your post below! Great post! My grandmother was a Rosie Rivetor (sp?), too, traveling across the US, from NC. That is really neat that you still have your ration stamps! The stripes on your linen pieces are beautiful! Great little detail!

I really enjoyed the post! :) ~Rhonda

What wonderful memories, precious family and yummy cookies. Now that is what it is all about don't you think?

Oh BJ...
Hi sweetie. What fun pictures and smiles, and memories you have on this page. I just love to look at the faces. Faces can tell you so much about a person. I just love the smile on your little grand daughters face, both the one with the new hat and the one waiting to open presents. Excitement in both faces.

Thank you for sharing sweetie. You have such a big family room. Oh to have that much space. What a true blessing when family comes.

Please stop by soon. I so love it when you do. Country hugs sweetie...Sherry

Good morning my dear BJ, finally some time on my computer. I have missed visiting so much. My Christmas projects are done at last. Well, mostly done. I really loved the photos you shared today. It doesn't matter when we show these photos or how many times, they still bring the same JOY to us.

Christmas cookie day was a blast. I will post it on Friday.

Love to you my friend, Jeanne

It looks like it is always fun at your house! We are busy here too. We have our first Christmas here on Saturday and leave to head south on Tuesday, so I had to get ahead of the game.

Everything looks wonderful and I hope to see pictures of Christmas 'present' in the near future.

Quick note: I have never understood everyone's fascination with Guitar Hero. We even had to have it at a work Christmas Party last year. (?)

Bj~It doesn't get better than....family and homemade baked treats on Christmas. Do you have a favorite Christmas Breakfast goodie?
Mine are sweet rolls...cinnamon, caramel pecan, orange.
Don't you love the aroma that fills the air during this season?
My cat also appreciates the evergreens and an occasional ping pong toss of my (newly created and not yet dried) ornaments!

Sweet holiday wishes,
Sara
