Busy days.......

Thankfully, I did my decorating "early." Because I work retail and as you can imagine.....
This is my busiest work time of the entire year, and for the most part....
But it is hard to keep up with life and "event's" during the month of December for me. SO I "try" to stay highly organized.
This years Christmas mantel is being guarded by the very fierce "Nutcrackers"....the middle one is a Fitz and Floyd and the other two are Steinbachs.
These decorative "antique replica" postcards were went to me by my sister Jenny recently. She knows how much I love things like these.Cookies have been made....and some have been eaten and some have been "saved up" for our family Christmas Party this coming Thursday night.I don't do alot of baking any more..because I would be the only one eating it. But when there is a special "occasion"...I do a a little bit of it.

The "Stockings" are hung and they are full of......well, "Kittens."Just "one kitten" to be exact.
Meet my "Grandkitten"...... "Tom Kitten." Mrs Priss's new "baby"...she's a Beatrix Potter fan can you tell??

We babysat him while Mrs. Priss and Mr. Joshua were in Gatlinburg with his family for a week at Thanksgiving.

It's dreary, dark and absolutely pouring outside here...our version of "Cajun Sneaux" (snow).....and I think I am going BACK TO BED.Then later I'm off to work for the afternoon and evening.

Hope your all faring well in your worlds!
Be blessed today.....

Hi Joyce,
As an old ex-retailer, I know how hard these last few weeks can be! Hang in there it will come faster than you can blink!
Those cookies look absolutely "out of this world goodness!" I can almost reach out and grab one! HA!
Merry Christmas to you and your growing family!
