Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Christmas Memories

I really hope that your Christmas was as fun as ours.  The house is too quiet now that all the sweetpeas have gone home.  But while they were here we had a wonderful time.

We filled a few of these...

                                                                 We wrapped a bunch of these...
 We baked some of these...
 We ate too many of these...
 We piled up lots of these...
 We ripped open some of these...
 We got to play with these...
 We threw some of these...
 We made one of these...   (meet Bob, the snowman)
 We bowled...
 We played...
 We even celebrated a 4th birthday...
I miss them all so much.

Looks like you had a whirlwind holiday! FUN! I have a pair of brothers in the "company" bed tonight having a sleepover. It's fun, and a ton more "happenin" than just the norm. LOL
Bob is a huge snow guy!
Enjoy

I feel like I was there. What a wonderful joy to look forward to, having grandchildren. Except for that whole incontinence thing. But whatever.
