Merry Christmas!!!

Merry Christmas,

I thought it might be fun to share a few pictures of my favorite Christmas decorations. We have always decorated most every room in our house for the Holidays. Most important of all are our nativity scenes - the best gift of all Jesus. There is no present greater than everlasting life and the promise of an infinite future.

Our Christmas tree is a collection of ornaments that reflect our life involving family and friends. I have had a Christmas party every year for the past 33 years which include the same ladies. As their daughters have married they have been included in our party. We all share in the cooking, and we all bring an ornament. Then the ornament game begins and we squabble for the ornament of our dreams. It's a fun night and a great tradition. Some of us only see each other once a year but the love we share is always present. So when I sit and look at our Christmas Tree I am reminded of many of my friends, those still here and some who are now with the Lord. Friendship is one of the most important parts of my life. At this age I cherish my friends and know without a doubt that they are my support system and encouragement . I only hope that I am as good a friend to them. So my advice - love your friends deeply and hang on to the gift of friendship.

I would like to thank all of you who supported us this year! You are great customers and great friends. Times are hard but we can and will survive this economy. We have a great country and this will get turned around. Thanks for your support and love.

Merry Christmas and God Bless you all,


"Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; He is Christ the Lord" Luke 2:11

Congrats to Cat!

I know you all think we have probably forgotten our drawing, but have no fear we are here!

Thank you to all of you who entered! It is fun to hear what other people like. My personal favorite Bali Pop is always changing. Every time a new line of Pops come in it changes. This time my favorite pop is Mango Margarita. Last time Green Tea was my favorite.

I would also like to thank our "Wednesday Girls" for drawing our winner. Every Wednesday these lovely ladies comes to visit us and sew in the classroom. We love having them, and have really enjoyed getting to know each and every one of them.

So our lucky winner was Cat! Cat please send us an email with your address and choice of Bali Pop (mocha mint or berry bliss) and we will get it in the mail for you!

Thanks again and Happy Holidays!
