It’s Christmas time

TreesStockings The trees are trimmed and the stockings are hung. There are treats to deliver and carols to be sung.

The wreaths are blowing out in the frigid wind, and the gingerbread men are toasty but where are their grins?

There are presents under the trees — though mostly for Raine — and our cupboards are overflowing with goodies aplenty.Wreaths

I’ve run out of clever sentences to rhyme, but all of these signs must mean it’s Christmas time!

Merry Christmas!!

Fabulous award

I usually never win anything, but recently I was awarded the Fabulous Blog award by my sister-in-law Sarah. There are certain obligations that go with acceptance of this award (see below) but before I get into that, I would like to share five reasons why I think Sarah is fabulous:

  1. Sarah is a social maven who effortlessly makes everyone in a room feel welcome and included;
  2. Sarah is ambitious, she sets goals and works hard in achieving them;
  3. Sarah is very compassionate and works to make other people’s lives better;
  4. Sarah loves to have fun; and
  5. Sarah always looks fabulous!

Now, my five fabulous addictions:

  1. fine chocolate – the darker the better
  2. dessert – almost anything with sugar, it is part of every well-balanced meal
  3. saving money – I love finding good deals
  4. reading the news – due to #5, I’m not as current on my current events as I should be
  5. snuggling with my baby!

I think that all the blogs I read are fabulous, so if you are reading this, and you have a blog, then you are tagged.

The rules of this award are:
1. You have to pass it on to 5 other fabulous blogs in a post.
2. You have to list 5 of your fabulous addictions in the post.
3. You must copy and paste the rules and the instructions below in the post.
