Traditions....


Well ,Merry Christmas my pink girlfriends!!!
I am feeling the crunch as I am sure most of you are....
The picture above is one of my new sheets..they make me smile every time I hop into bed..


This is a little house that I made..it is so sweet and yummy...

This is one of my pretty pink ornaments adorning my tree....
I could have just kept putting up pictures of my house but thought it would be to boring...
I just wanted to share a tradition that we have had for many years...
on Christmas Eve my grown daughters and their families come and spend the night..Santa comes here for all the kids...we eat a breakfast casserole after everyone has opened gifts..then spend the day cooking and playing..then in the evening we all open our stockings and top it off reading the Christmas Story.

I pray that you all have a wonderful Christmas and a Bright New Year!!!!!

Special Ornament

Morning my friends....
here we are at another Pink Saturday...the Christmas ones are especially fun...aren't they?I have been thinking all week how blessed we are......
This little pink Santa is one of my favorite ornaments because my Aunt Patty gave it to me the Christmas before she passed away...it was really before I was so into pink but he was just so sweet ..he stood out on my tree....we should really treat all those around with much love and respect..we had no idea that it would be her last Christmas...I miss her so much...
I made the pink cottage last year....I had it for sale in my Lollishop but no one bought her so she graces my table this year..


I found this cute little girl friend ornament today and it looks really cute on my pink tree....
I just had to show off my early Christmas present from my daughter...a hot pink lamp....
the picture does not do it justice...


Well,happy trails to you as you travel the air ways today and tomorrow....
God Bless you....

A Christmas Memory....

The old picture in the burgundy frame is me about three years old..although I don't remember taking this picture...it is one of the few reminders of my life when all seemed rosy and bright...I can see my Mother in her starched dress reaching high above the kitchen cabinets to store Christmas goodies that we could not partake of till Christmas Eve....my Mother made Christmas so wonderful ,she kept us all excited...awaiting the arrival of Santa.....unfortunately these days were cut short as my parents divorced and things never were quite the same...but I have tried to instill this same excitement that Mother did for us ...with the addition of teaching my children about our Precious Savior ...whom without there would be no Christmas.....
......I do not look to happy......
Here are just a few of my Christmas pretties....
enjoy...and slow down and take time for your family in this busy season..it is something you will have to JUST do..it does not come easy...
till next time God Bless !!!!


I tried to change the C to a K in Kandy Kane Lane...since my name is Kandy.
