A Simple New Year’s Eve at Home

Lady Bug and I are going to stay up late tonight to watch the ball drop. We did a fun craft and made glasses to wear that have the number 2015 in gold and silver. This is the first year that I’ve let her stay up late to celebrate with me. I got us noise makers and of course we’ll bang on pots and pans. It wouldn’t be New Years without champagne, but I got us some kid sparkling cider instead. Lady Bug will love the bubbles and toasting with her mommy.

Hope everyone has a wonderful New Year’s Eve!

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone!!! I wanted to add a little Christmas cheer to my blog quickly since I’m still awake. Santa just left our house and left a bunch of gifts under the tree for Lady Bug. I know she’ll be really excited to see what she gets when she wakes up. I saw him fill her stocking too! He placed and orange at the bottom of the stocking to fill the toe just like he did in my stocking when I was a little girl. I hope she appreciate this tradition as much as I did growing up. I loved getting goodies but always liked to have a piece of fresh fruit in my stocking.

Santa gobbled up the cookies Lady Bug made for him and he took the carrots with him for the reindeer. Lady Bug will be excited to see everything has been eaten off of her special Santa plate. I better get some sleep before she wakes up and I get no sleep at all. Merry Christmas everyone!

Nice little stocking stuffer for the bass player

When I was going crazy, trying to think of stocking stuffer gift ideas for the adults in the extended family, I remembered that Cousin Steve plays the bass. So I think that the next time I’m at the mall, I’m going to make a point to buy some Bass Strings to put into his stocking! Won’t he be surprised to see something like that instead of a candy bar or an orange!

Hope you have a blessed Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is when we’re suppose to give thanks for the blessings of the year. Well that’s something we all need to do every day.  I sure do.  I’m so thankful for my daughter and my wonderful family.  I just don’t know what I would do without them and don’t want to find out either any time soon.

As I’m sure you have figured out, my grandmother is my most special person in the world (after my daughter.) She’s my rock and life just wouldn’t be the same without her so I am so thankful she’s still in my life and hope and pray she will be for many, many more years.

Here’s hoping you have a wonder Thanksgiving.  Just a little humor to help make your day better a little better.
