IT'S PINK SATURDAY! YEAH!
I have come to love "Pink Saturday". I even have my dear sweet sister-in-law, Maureen, wishing me a happy Pink Saturday and she does not even blog. I think a national holiday for the color pink is getting closer than you might think!
This week we are to share a special ornament or decoration. I just cannot think of one. I love all my Christmas ornaments, each one is so special, each with it's own special memories. Christmas is my favorite time because it is the celebration of the birth of our Savior. Everyone is kinder and gives you that extra attention you do not normally get. It's like the world even knows something special has happened.
I was a little under the weather these past few days. All my children came to the rescue. They do not like to see their Mother sick. Strict orders were given to the Mother, that's me, to rest and rest and to rest. When did they get old enough to give orders to their Mother?
I tried when they were all home to at least get my son, Kyle and the two Grandchildren together for pictures. I wanted to send them out in my Christmas cards, which I have not done yet. However, my little Noah, can not stay still for pictures. As you can see, we did attempt. These were the best out of 30 attempts. Princess Maya, however, always is ready and looks perfect!
My hope is that all is well with you. I still have not finished with the gift wrapping. Very frustrating. My PS pictures are of some treasures I found this week at the Thrift Store. The two dishes are Belleek. They are the palest pink, stunning and cost only $6.00. A treasure indeed.
Scoring on Thrift Store treasure always puts a smile on my face. I have been very tired today, maybe it was those last two real sick days. So I am going to behave my self, listen to my children and rest. Lots of love and blessings, Martha
