Well....My last post was all about the beautiful golden yellow trees, and all about Fall.   I think there were a couple of pictures from the Christmas store in Branson, included in the post.  

Here I am today.....Posting a couple of Christmas pictures.  🎄👀

    As much as I love Christmas and I love decorating......I just simply have not been excited about it this year.   I honestly think I've been prolonging getting all the decorations out of storage, because my Christmas spirit has not arrived yet.  

I did decorate this tree yesterday, but I just wanted to be done with it before I even got started.

However...My sweet Sam, took the day off in order to help me get the trees set up.  He sent me a text on Monday, saying that he was going to take the day and spend it helping ME.

How could I not get this tree decorated??

This tree is not fully done, but maybe by tomorrow, my Vitamin B12 will kick in and I can focus on the completion.  

This is actually a wall hanging!  I'm looking up at it (backwards) while taking this picture.  


We haven't even had Thanksgiving yet!!
The ol' Turkey is getting left out this year.

Speaking of Turkey's....I'm sure most of you saw on TV that the Greenberg Turkey Company had an explosion at the TURKEY place this past weekend.  I ALWAYS buy a Greenberg Turkey, both for Thanksgiving and Christmas.   

This place is only about 15 miles from us, and I always try to go early to avoid having to stand in line.  The Greenberg Turkey was on Oprah Winfrey's "Favorite things" list.   Certainly NOT the reason why I buy them....!!!   THESE SMOKED TURKEYS ARE AWESOME!!!

But...NO Greenberg this year!!

I'll be sure to post Christmas decorating photos as soon as I can make myself gather a little 

Ho, Ho, Ho!

We truly serve a mighty God.  Just look at the beauty in my header picture.

This is just one of the trees that we saw on a quick trip to Missouri this past weekend.  

I haven't even taken the time to edit these pictures, but they are all so beautiful just as they are.

This was our morning view from the hotel room...absolutely stunning!

One of the trees as we drove up the drive to our hotel entrance.  We stayed at the Chateau on the Lake in Branson.  I enjoy staying at this hotel and this year, we had an extra surprise...The Christmas trees were all up and decorated.  

Another view outside our room...the fog was so heavy this day and you could barely see the lake.  

Sam and I at the Christmas Village.  Santa was there, but I thought it was kinda strange that Santa and his chair was completely roped off with a red tape.  No one could get near him, so I guess if kids wanted to talk to him, they would have to shout out their Christmas wishes...LOL.

Mylee Jo and Tori....they were so much fun on this trip and they both had a great time...

Our Crew....We left the rest of the family at home!!!  😂😂.   Since this was a spur of the moment get-away, some of the guys had to work and could not make this trip with us.  

The girls....Trista and Shanda...all decked out in their leopard mask...waiting for the show "NOAH" to start.

Me and Shan at the Christmas store..

These two are always so much fun....warming their hands by the FAKE heater..   LOL.

Branson is so much fun and there is so much to do in that area.  Even though it is a Seven and half hour drive from our house to Branson...we usually make this trip at least once a year...sometimes 2 times.  I'm not fond of the drive, especially the interstate part, but we always have such a great time.

It's those quick, unexpected short trips that make for tons of memories and FUN!!


A Day of Remembrance

  We have had a Beautiful Day here in East Texas....... Memorial Day:   A day of remembrance for those who died in service for our Country! ...
