Every Friday write a short story or poem or even a limerick will do, i think you could put a recipe in if the numbers were right, then report back to the g-man and play with everyone!!!
"Listen up readers we
can play a game
I've played this before
and it's still the same
If you decide to
give this a try
You don't have to wait
for a year to go by
The season of giving
is great for the heart
and 'Paying it Forward'
is a great way to start!"
Here you go G-man, and if you want to play here are the rules. I played "Pay it Forward" last year and Syd sent me some wonderful gifts. What we do is this, you leave me a comment that you want to play. Of the readers that want to play, I will pick 3 people to give my gifts to. I will get your contact information and I will have 365 days to send you your package. when i post the names of those i choose, then they will have to post a "Pay it Forward" on their blog and do the same. You don't have to limit it to 3, that is just my limit. So if you want to play all you need to do is be willing to give to receive. I hope you all are in the giving spirit I know part of my gift will include some home roasted coffee along with a couple of other things.
OK so here is tonight's pictures from Century II. They had a free evening with Santa, we waited in line for 30 minutes!! Here is the view from topside of the convention center.
Here they had a place where the kids could write letters to Santa. You put the kids name and address on the letter and I guess Santa will answer them. So they each sent one in!!
Here is the 40 foot tree outside, I was a little disappointed with the lights on it, but it is still a big tree!!
And the creme de la creme
The picture with the big man!!! My sisters little ones were with us and we all got to cram in. I was so proud of my girls the bean went right up to him and bopped him in the head with her balloon!! Then she said I love you Santa and gave him a big hug!! This guy was great I told the older boy to give his beard a tug to see if he was the real deal!! He said no way, Santa won't bring me anything if I did that!!!
We have little icicles and wooden snowflakes covered in glitter. The red sled is from Wes's mom, she gave it to Haley to put on her tree. I couldn't say no, but it really doesn't match my theme. I really am OK with it.
I have 2 of these guys, i thought they were so pretty i can't find any more though. got them on clearance. Haley said the nutcracker talked to her!!
Here is one of 2 swirly snowflakes i got, they were very pretty i thought but the store only had 2 white ones left, undamaged that is so i got them both.
I think my tree looks very pretty this year, not sure what my color theme will be next year, but i really like how it turned out this time.
I hope this post finds you all well and in the holiday spirit, i am anxious to see who will want to play this time. i will be stopping by in the morning to check out all the flash Friday players!! my "A" leaves tomorrow and i won't see her again until Sunday, the girls will be gone Saturday morning through Sunday so my honey and i can have some alone time this weekend. so here is today's thought; "Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend."- Melody Beattie
