HMR Christmas concert with the fourth grade chorus...

This past week Julia participated in the winter concert at her school. Here are my favorite pictures.
Julia is standing on the left side of the stage, in the second row, she is the fourth person in the row.

I do not remember the name of the song but she was waving a red scarf in this one.
This is Jayne enjoying a very large cup of warm chocolate after meeting and greeting Santa will post more on that tomorrow along with her concert photos.

Have a good day.

More decorations.....

This is the big window in the living room. I decided to add the lights last night. it looks so pretty.
here is our upstairs tree. Jayne and I decorated it while the two big kids were doing homework. she is an expert at putting lights up. We have a new tree stand this year it is awesome. it is cast iron all one piece. I still have a littlt christmas village to put up. will post again friday.
Yeah my cards are going in the mail on friday or saturday. What a relief that will be.

Have a good one.

a busy weekend


Hi, I'm the angle like Julia. I knitted this "creation" that my friend in knitting class told me about. It's called a Chapstick cozy.

Instructions to make a chapstick cozy

1. cast on 40 stitches
2. knit/perl for 5 rows
3. bind/cast off all
4. plan what you want it to look like
5. sew around the chapstick cozy (the edges)
6. DECORATE !!!!

Thanks Julia for the craft editorial! That was wonderful.

Today we actually had 2 inches of snow. It was also the day we went to get the real tree.
This is the family room tree, it is artificial. Jayne is so excited this year. She has been involved in every step of the way.
this is the mantle so far. only one stocking is hanging so far.
Here we are at the tree farm, it really is a local nursery.

The tree will be strung with lights and decorated later to night when the old elf can do it by her self!!!

Have a good one.
