My way of keeping in touch with my "out of state family" with pictures, scrapbook pages, lots of genealogy information and LIFE in general.

A BIT GUILTY...
Guess I should feel a bit guilty but I don't! I am really looking forward to Monday, December 26, when all this Christmas stuff is over. Don't get me wrong, I'm not as bad as that old guy in the Christmas Story movie but I will sure be glad when this is all over. This little Santa is the only Christmas decoration I have in my house. We haven't put up a tree in the past five years. Unlike the rest of you my family is not the "Leave it to Beaver" type family or any of those other TV families you see all lovie-dovie. We all get together for Christmas Eve and have for years but it's a big unhappy chore for most of them. We have Christmas Dinner at my mom's on Christmas day and if her favorite child is not in attendance she is like an old wet hen. My husband and I are trying to change it this year and have the dinner at our house....wish me luck!
I love genealogy, painting and scrapbooking. I taught painting classes and did craft shows for more years than I can count. I have scraped for over 12 years. I started digital scrapping about five years ago and love it. We have a half-dozen grandkids and I am always snagging their pictures off their "FaceBook" to scrap. My daughter "Suzie" takes beautiful photo's that I try my best to snag for scrapping. I also love all things Americana, Shabby Chic, Vintage and Gently Worn. We both love to visit Thrift Stores and Flea Markets almost every week-end. The one thing I Hate to do is cook. But hubby spoils me by being a great cook and doing it all, even the grocery shopping. The kitchen is his and that is find with me. One of my favorite quotes is: "You can't get a cup of tea big enough or a book long enough to suite me. by ~ C.S. Lewis~
