Christmas

We, along with grandchildren, had hoped for white Christmas--but not 12" of "white"! Anyway, it is beautiful and it is IOWA.

Being snowbound for day or so has afforded time to reflect on past Christmas's with children, grandchildren, parents and grandparents. While reminiscing I recalled a letter from my mother to Santa written 92 Christmas's ago. I found the letter and wanted to share with you.

Special time of year

Thank you, my blogging pals,
 for your friendship and kind words.
 When I started blogging
I had no idea how many treasured friends I would
have the privilege of adding to my life.
 I am grateful for each one of you! 
 
I haven't been posting because.......
 
I was a vendor last weekend at the Central Presbyterian Church in conjuction with the Holly and Ivy tour of homes. Carol, pictured on the left is dear friend of 56 years and was a great helper!
 
 
Below are a few more Christmas treasures  I made to sell. 

 
Sunday we woke up to this beautiful view!

 
Our dear friend "Donna" from Omaha water colored
 this adorable Mr. and Mrs. Snow couple for us. Note the monogrammed letters of "G" on his scarf and  the "C" on her jacket--how clever you are "Donna"!
 
 
Hope you are all having a wonderful week!
 
Hugs,
 
Carolyn
