These are a few of my favorite things...

Forgive me, but I watched The Sound of Music yet again last night. So here are a few of my favorite things this holiday season:
I love the fact that a seed catalog arrives two days after Christmas.
Annie has this new wonder brace to keep her from licking her elbows to the bone. We are told it is a side effect of her medications that causes this self-abusive behavior. It is not one of her favorite things.

Matt and I received many lottery tickets for Christmas and remain full of hope to someday win the big bucks.
I continue to love our new alternative source of heat. Fireplace, definately a favorite thing!

Matt loves his "Crown" from Butch and family. It appeared to be one of his favorite things this holiday season.

Matt also loved his new mat from Smitty and Carol.

Thanks Kim for the great placemats.

Mark gave me a food processor that eats whole veggies at a time.

Storm riders.

After a big breakfast at our one and only Carmel restaurant, the famous Seafood Galley, Matt and I took the big truck out four wheelin in the freezing rain.
We cruised by the deer farm near our house. These guys are just waiting to be on someones dinner plate in Europe.

We continued to East Corinth to check out the house Mark has put in an offer to purchase.
It has a mini barn which I consider a necessity.

A two car garage where we can store some of our toys.

And a day light basement for a mere $92,000. We hope he gets it!

Holiday Cheer!

Butch, Phyllis, and Mert came for Sunday dinner.

We gave Butch a remote control spider and after some assembly, it was fun for everyone.
We were festive!
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. It's going to anyways.

Crazy shots.

Matt, being disabled and all, has time to take shots of our tree from all different views.
I know the palm tree in the background needs water, but right now the 10 foot pine in our living room is suckin up all the watering energy I have.

Our recent ice storm was hard on our birches, but we never lost power.

I felt the need to decorate five wreathes for our fench because I have nothing else to do.

All dolled up this holiday season...

The tree is up and we got all dolled up for a Christmas PartyMom and Dad, the red cape you got me a few years ago looked really nice over my little black dress! Thanks again!

We danced and danced!

...and danced some more!

I got to see some friends I had not seen in some time.

Some more of my favorite people and co-workers!

What a smile!!!

We love the band "Midnight Rose." This is my friend Bob. I have known him for about ten years now. It's great that I get to see him when his band rocks and rolls at our parties!
Butch loves Bob and the band! What a great party!

It's all about the garland!

Matt and I take great pride in our fence decorating. We found this garland at Sam's Club for 14 bucks for 25 feet. It is North Carolina pine and cedar. We added white lights of course.

Johnny and Kim came to visit Annie and helped with decorations.

Kim and I had fun making this work of art from northern and southern pine products, and some new candle lights.
