I have my dad's brown sweater and mama's jacket that I would like to make into teddy bears someday. I just can't get brave enough to try it. It's only been 29 yrs. that daddy has been gone!!LOL I keep his sweater in my hope chest.
Lony....be careful or you will put yourself under too much pressure by trying to do too much before Christmas!! Been there and done that a few times!!! Talk about a crazy woman when I used to do that! Wow I was for sure. LOL
Hubs never knew who he was coming home to.....Susie Homemaker OR the Witch on wheels!!!

That is one good thing about the hubs being gone for two weeks. I can be crazy and manic when he is not around.

Good Morning, All. BBBBrrrrrrrrr. Our coldest morning yet. Sposed to be -5 with wind chill. Yikes! At least Lony finally has company and can commiserate with someone about How Cold It Is! I have made lunch for youngest, prayed hard for ds, put away dishes from dish drainer and made coffee.

Eliza, hope today passes quickly for you and that you get some unexpected bright spots.

Sue, I am such a pushover for Hallmark movies. I even enjoy the commercials they show during the movie! Some are mini movies themselves.

Hope everyone is turning the corner from their illnesses. Linda, hope the Shingles are greatly improved today.

Good Monday morning!!!! Rise and shine everyone. It's a cold one here. That's ok. It makes it seem more like Christmas.
I have to go with hubs this morning. He has to have his eyes dilated.
Catch you all later!

Sometimes we would take baskets of goodies to give them. Those were the good old days. No one in their right mind would ever let kids go out on their own now.

Eliza....PLANES, TRAINS, and AUTOMOBILES is one of my all time favorite movies. Steve Martin and John Candy just went together like hot cocoa and marshmallows!
kcmama....I LOVE the Hallmark movies. I watched 2 of them today!!!

Good night all. Sweet dreams!!!
That is SO weird...I saw the picture and just sent it to my daughter saying in the subject.."I used to go carolling with a bunch of kids from my church when I was a kid"...than I came back to read what you said......our choir director did go along....that was a looooooooooong time ago...thanks for the picture Sue!..

Lony, I was thinking. Isn't there some other material you could use in place of the fur? What kind of bear does he want? Brown, black,-- polar----panda? There is that mink stuff now, velour, fleece, jersey knit,heavier double knit, terry cloth..... then line it with something soft and with a hood that has ears it would still look like a bear without the furry mess. The cleaning/laundry/upkeep of the fur would be difficult wouldn't it?

Good morning sunshines!

Kcmama thanks for the suggestions, I will try to find a fabric store and see what kind of options I have. I think he wants to look like a big brown bear or grizzled. We will have to see.

They may be coming home anyway. Looks like Shell only has ammonia wells left up there and they don't want to start them yet. Mike said they may only keep one crew up there till Christmas. Luckily they like Mike and his crew the best so they would be the ones that stayed, if they keep one.

Ohh Kcmama put on your winter woolies and join the club. Maybe we should go caroling in the frigid tundra!

Those to me aren't right.. Christmas is Christmas and Chanukah is Chanukah...I am not one of those who says Happy Holidays.. I say Merry Christmas.. I love the decorations of Christmas...it's way better than Stars and Driedels....I want snowmen and reindeer and christmas globes with Tommy and Jane inside, raining down with snow.. and I want icicles and all that stuff...

Chanukah never was a holiday that was like Christmas.. someone commercialized it...My sister in law in Vegas, hangs blue lights around her house and then inside she has big star of David, with lights around that..

I want to put lights around my house.. and BIG GIGANTIC HUGE sleigh with Garfield in it and presents in the back.. and then a Giant Mr and Mrs Santa...and big fake Fire things and all that...LOL!!

Well no not a tree for me...but I want to throw a pair of lights around my coffee table.. just cause I love lights and sparkle....but I don't want a 50 foot pair of lights...and maybe a around my Tiffany Style lamp LOL!. I am going to look at the after Christmas sale and see if they sell them in short lengths.....There is a house decorated up the block from me.. and they have blue, purple, and red.. it repeats like that.. no other colors and is just gorgeous...

Lony.. I bet it would fall off...but heck I would crystal it all up LOL!!

Really?? if they burn out Deb.. do you throw them away or change the battery??? or can you buy some that plug in and will never burn out???

I know these are dumb stupid questions.. but I have heard during the years that when people go thru their Christmas decorations.. they throw lights away cause it's no good...

My sister in law had star fish lights that she draped around her table behind her dining room table.. but she said those aren't Christmas lights..

And how how come those Icicle lights??? why do they only come in white???
