Christmas Village.....

Hi everyone. Well the count-down begins....four more days to Christmas. Where in the world has this month gone. Used to be Christmas took forever to get here when I was it flies by. I think as of today I have everything checked off on the "to do" list, so now I can sit back and enjoy the season.

Cards made and mailed, the last of my cards with letters sent off today. My step-fathers gift was sent off to Las Vegas today. I was surprised that the lines were not long, maybe because of the weather??? Or maybe the bulk of everything was mailed earlier. Cookies and apple pie made, pumpkin pie next week. Decorations up. Presents bought for JP. I'm watching "It's a Wonderful Life" What's Christmas without that movie???? How many times have I seen that movie...and it still brings tears to my eyes.

I don't have any other gifts to's just JP and I, oh and my little dog, Kylie. JP's family is down in Chicago. We've not gone to Chicago for Christmas in a long time... As for my family it's just my step-father, Pops. He should get his present after Christmas...I couldn't see spending $16 for it to get to him sooner. As it was, his gift was $12 to send...the cookies and stuffed doggie didn't even cost that much. Oh well, it's the thought that counts.
So today I am showing you my christmas village....I love putting it up every year. And, every year when it comes down, I am sad to see it go.
Every year, I like to buy something new for the village, whether it be a building or people or whatever that might be. I am running out of space though, might have to extend the village for next year.
In this picture is the whole village. I guess I have some space yet to fill. Will have to check the stores for 50% to 75% off village accessories after Christmas sales.

Oh...I had some good news today. Went to the eye doctor. A different one from the last time. I had no faith in the last one and customer service was bad. So this eye doctor checked my eyes and said there was not much change from the last time and when he checked the eyes for diabetes, he said there was no sign of diabetes in my eyes...usually people who have diabetes the inside of their eyes have pools of blood. My eyes were clear. Thank you Jesus!!! My blood sugars have been normal pretty much. I told the Doctor that my average for 8 days was 115, he said that was a very good average. He even asked me, "how long have you been diabetic?" I wish I could say I am not diabetic anymore....that would be nice. Now if I could just get this weight controlled, I would be a happy camper.

Well, it is time to close for today. Tomorrow we are going to do some shopping and pay the electric bill. There is supposed to be a big storm coming our way, Weatherman is saying 4-8's going to be a WHITE CHRISTMAS!!!! You all have a great weekend and keep looking up for your redemption draws nigh. Cheers and Merry Christmas ~ Louise

Jesus is the Reason for the Season!!

Hi there. Congrats on your eye exam. Keep up the good work :)I wish I could say we were having a white Christmas this year, it was 70 degrees today! Usually it's in the 30't to 50's. Take care and Happy Holidays to you!

Rick set up our Christmas village this year. The kids love moving the trees around. We did have to go purchase two replacement bulbs and found the last package. I found the store (Michael's) to be mostly empty of holiday stuff and what was left was selling for 70% off. Not the bulbs though... ha.
