Merry Christmas everyone!!!

Well, here I sit all alone; the kids went to dinner w/my SILs family; they invited me but I just don't feel like going. I feel kind of blue; I miss Kenny. It's so funny how people come into our lives and make a impact on you and your ways of life. I never went anywhere or did anything until he came in my life and now that he's gone; I feel myself slipping back into my little cocoon again. Once Ash & Miss Scarlett leave in March I will really become a hermit.

I'm a waitress and I wait on little older ladies who come in alone day after day and I look at them and wonder will I become like that? I wonder what their lives are like; does anyone call them or care about them or do they just "exist". Kind of like me right now. I haven't talked to Kenny in 3 days now and am sure it's pretty much "over"; I guess I"m just feeling sorry for myself tonight; being Christmas Eve and all.

I am blessed with 2 beautiful daughters and 2 wonderful grandkids; whom are all healthy and safe. I have a mother that loves me dearly and she is healthy; I can't wait to move back to Ohio and be with her for the rest of her life.

And I am blessed to have all my "blogger friends"; you have brought me more joy and laughs than you realize; Ashley calls it "my old lady stuff". LOL I hope all of you have a wonderful Christmas and are safe and able to be with the ones you love and that love you back. I guess I better go and wrap the kids stocking stuffers; I have been told I do make the "BEST STOCKINGS EVER!!" LOL God bless all of you. Hugs, Shar

Look what I got in the mail today!!!!

I won a give a way on "Olde Country Cupboard" blog and recieved my gifts today!!! :) Thank you so much hun, I LOVE the tree and the tarts have my home smell like I've been baking away; which anyone who knows me knows better. LOL

I was in 3 Christmas Ornament Exchanges this year and this is the 3 I sent out. I know I need to work on my finishing technique (sp?) I'm new at finishing; before I found "blogs" I only thought I could frame my stitching; little did I know what all you ladies do! I'm just learning. I'd love to learn how to sew my smaller pieces into little pillows; I just got my Aunt Lee's sewing machine and am dying to sew something. :) Any help is greatly appricated.

My SIL is home on 2 weeks leave from the Army; they are staying w/me and it's great having him home. Then he'll go back to Virginia for the rest of his training. We still don't know where they will be stationed. I haven't decided yet; but I might just follow them; especially if they go South. I don't have anything or anyone holding me here in Colorado. I was thinking of moving back to Ohio to be with my mom. Which is probabley what I will do. Also, of course here are some pics of my little angel. I had just given her a bath. I love those eyes. :)

Only 3 more followers and then I'm having a great give a way!!! You may want to pass the word. :) I have gone thru my stash and found several duplicate charts and a few surprises; I don't know if I'll list the "gifts" or let it be a surprise???
