A little behind.

I'm A little behind

After two and half weeks in Houston- My Darling and I are back home and I am scrambling to take care of him.. see some family and of course DECORATE the house for Christmas. My Darling’s favorite season and he loves the entire house slathered in festive attire.

Yes, It's True. . . It still has it's prime coat. It will be an after Christmas project. I know,
another one. But decorated - so I get brownie points, don't  I  ? ?

Aubrie pushed me, and pushed me- but so glad she did. The house looks very pretty- and my Dad came out to “brighten up the place” with outdoor lights.

Very hard for My Darling to lay on the sofa and watch. . . but that’s the Doctors orders for the time being. We are trying to get his strength up so we can begin a new regimen of Chemo the 2nd week of December- we think.

Hated to cover my view out to the pasture, but Santa had to go somewhere.

Next weekend we will host the annual cookie-bake.
We visit, make tons & tons of cookies, and sample a few along the way  :)  

You know- just to let you know which ones were our favorites.

Right ?  

Just a few snippets today- next week I will show the entire
 kitchen- BEFORE everyone converges on us for the "cookie-bake" and then I'm sure it won't be 
quite as clean. . .  H-m-m-m-  

Till next time-

Diana & Aubrie

  3. Oh.. gosh, hope you have a lovely & restful day off ! We actually got the cold front here just after noonish, so a warm
    fire was enjoyed by all, but Alas- the football game was not as sweet sounding as the Christmas music - ha ha
