My world goes from August to August - meaning the school calendar. It has been that way for about 35 years and still more to come!
So I have been on Christmas break more or less....
No we have not had snow yet - maybe 5 snowflakes - but we are out of school today - it is going to be 7 degrees for the high and we don't want our kidlets to freeze!!!
Actually that is a record cold for here.
The grandson made it to blue uniform which is instructor. He is second degree black belt working on his 3rd degree in 2 1/2 years about - from now.
Susan from Writing Straight from the Heart last week asked what our favorite Christmas gift was.
Do you see the necklace around Chatty's neck?
This was my favorite gift this Christmas from my grandson.
(Darla it is a little bit of a bay window now that I look at it.)
Anyway he took one of his medal necklaces and found a little silver medallion that said
H O P E ! This is what he gave me for Christmas.
He told me that when he thinks of hope he thinks of me as his hope person.
Now is he smooth or what?
Hope is going to be my word this year.
No make up!
For Christmas break we went to Calloway Gardens in Pine Mt. GA.
This was the first guy that greeted us! Good thing he was on the wall.
Calloway Festival of Lights
Cheri - Calloway for you.
And we brought Disco too!
Disco had a rough time poor baby.
My daughter and I.
Renea at Simply Sequins - I told you I had a lot of black clothes.
We didn't even plan this, but we all wore black.
Butterfly Garden's Gift Shop
See Chatty hiding??
The actual butterfly gardens........
There you can see a butterfly!
I hate having my picture taken!
I love lights and they had quite a few.
The only problem was that my hubs did not check the car before our trip and the antifreeze was low. So for the whole hour of lights - we were worried about the car overheating!!!!!!
But they were beautiful.
We got home and just when it was time for school to start - we got this cold wave - and the kids are still home! lol Hope you enjoyed the tour.
We also took some time to look at houses - we want to downsize - that is going to be so hard.
And today we are having a real estate lady come to give us an evaluation.
I have been busy!
