I am so fortunate to know THE RIGHT PEOPLE here in blogland!! Just take a good look at my beautiful header!! I am so thrilled. This came from Hootin' Anni!! She saw that i was having trouble getting some things to work on my template and wrote me and OFFERED to fix this for me!! WOW!! I am just a very very thrilled blogger lady today!! PLUS she had no idea that i LOVE SNOWMEN!! How great is that? I just want to thank you Miss Anni for this great design. You are one talented lady in my book!!

We got our home decorated today!! Since it is just US now we don't do as much as we used too when the kids were home. Seems like it is not as much fun!! We opted for a 4' tree a couple of years ago. We have a gorgeous BIG TREE in the garage but it needs put together and well we just aren't up for that!! I wish that someone had our beautiful BIG TREE though!! This little one is fine for us. Hubby decorated our front porch too. I think that everything looks nice!!

We practically RAN INTO a good deal yesterday!! Hubby was at Lowe's and found a big capacity washer that was $500.00 marked way way down. It has a stainless steel tub!! Never had anything like that before!! My washer has not been spinning very well. It takes a long time to dry our clothes. We decided this was too good a deal to pass up!! Today with our daughter's help we got the new washer upstairs and the old washer down stairs!! Boy hubby and Becky struggled so much!! I hated to watch. I could not do anything with this bum knee!! We now have it all in!! Great deal!! I love it when you can get something for the price that it should have been in the beginning!!

Garrett and Maddie came over and decorated our little tree!! It has all snowmen mostly on it now. Their mommy went shopping for Christmas so the kids are here with us playing outside with the neighbor kids!! It is simply beautiful here today! The sun is shining brightly and you can sit outside on the porch without a coat or a sweater!! How wonderful for December!! The temperature says 85!!

Hope your day was a great as mine. I am off to the orthopedist tomorrow afternoon. I hope that there is nothing very bad wrong with my knee!! It sure hurts!!

Have a great rest of the day my friends!!

Good afternoon Sandy, I still have no Christmas decorates inside or outside..I don't think I will do any this year...My soul is not into it..Your tree looks very good and I love the new header...Enjoy your grands. Love ya, Baba

trying to leave you a comment. Go to my blog. I changed the background. Hope you like it.:)

I'm so glad you like it Sandy!!

Ya, I know just how those washing machines can be getting them installed, and how heavy they are and awkward to manipulate around the house! Home no one hurt their backs with the moving....like you state here tho, a good deal is worth the extra huffing and puffing! [I love LOWES]

I wish I could take your huge tree for you...ours is 6.5' and artificial but the high ceilings in this house makes it look teeny-tiny. Oh well, it's really not the tree that Christmas is about.

Again, you being happy with the new template, makes me very happy!!!!

Now, I'm back to crocheting my santa claus and more football.

I typed "Home no one got hurt" which really means HOPE no one got hurt. Too much salsa during the game....mind is burned. LOL

I love your new header! Did you know when I read your blog, the middle section is down below everything else and on the left. I have to scroll way down to see it....

Don't know why.

I cannot imagine getting a washer UP those steps!! Wow. Hope they are both OK.

Take care of yourself.

Hugs,

Susan

I Love your new header!! That Anni is so good to everyone!!!
I was just over to Julie's and I did the meme she did on "what holiday are you" ... I was Easter!!
I am so happy you got a new washer that will spin things out so they dry faster in the dryer!!
Let us know what the Doctors says tomorrow! I sure hope your knee is not hurt bad..... Blessings. Carolyn

I have to scroll down to the bottom to read your post, too

Congratulations on that great buy of a washer...I love getting bargains!

My little Christmas tree is up and decorated too, I'll post a photo when I get the chance.

I hope the orthopaedic surgeon can fix your knee. I used to work for some wonderful orthopods, young guys they were and really up to date on all the latest minimally invasive procedures.

Anyway, your guy will fix you up and you'll be right after that.

Take care and go easy on that knee.

Congrats on the new washer...I'm groaning just thinking about the steps. Gotcha all prayed up for your doctor's appointment. Let me know how it turns out.

Hello dear Sandy:-) I so love your new header, that Anni is such a whiz at decorating blogs, isn't she, I just love her to bits!! Your tree looks beautiful and look at the wonderful little helpers you had:-) I miss having my boys home to help me decorate...doing it alone just isn't as much fun. About 3 years ago I bought a HUGE tree...now I wonder why I did that, it's a chore to get it decorated, I should have gone smaller. lol Good for you on finding such a great deal on the washer!!! xox

Love your new header!! I've been out in California for a month helping out my mom. She was in a car accident. She's better, but still has a way to go. While I was there we started talking about Savannah and I told my husband we need to plan a weekend there! Hopefully in spring time we'll get to visit! I came home to the Christmas lights up outside and the decoration boxes lined up in the garage ready for me and Mary to start in the house! Hope you are well! Hope to be updating my blog soon!
