Christmas Blues

I think I was going through the Christmas Blues.  Christmas was such a rush and it happened to fast. It was here and then it was gone.  For days after Christmas I was lazy and didn't want to do anything.  It had to be the Christmas Blues!   I didn't know what to do.
So yesterday I had my Grand daughter Keyarra come over to spend the night.   We had a ball!  We made cookies, baked a cake in her easy bake oven lol, made some more peanut butter balls (they are her favorite) played sorry and guess who, painted each other nails, watched movies and I taught her how to stitch.  She traced a picture from her coloring book and wrote her name under it, then she traced her design onto fabric and picked out her colors, I got her started and she did most of it on her own(I had to get the knots out) but she had fun and she learned something new.  As soon as I get the pictures down loaded from my camera I will show you all her finished product.
Now I feel better and full of energy I think that's what I needed, just some time to feel like a child again!
I've been reading every ones blog and it looks like most of you had a wonderful Christmas and I'm happy for you.  To the few that were sick or had lost a loved one, I pray for you and hope for a quick recovery.
I hope your New Year is better and brighter! Prim Blessings! Robin

Some Christmas Decorations

Good Morning Everyone!
It's snowing here in Wisconsin so I thought it would be a good time to post some of the Christmas pictures I have been promising.  These are some groupings I did in my kitchen.

These are some pictures in my dining room.  I love snowmen!

 These trees have my snowmen ornaments on them.
 This is looking into my dining room from my kitchen.

I wanted to put something in my bird bath that I have in the bathroom.  I thought this was perfect!
This is my tree in the living room, this tree has my prim ornies, ornaments that were giving to us, and the ornaments that my children have made through out the years. 
On top of my entertainment center I put my collection of Swarvoski snowflakes, I love the way they sparkle with the lights.
I put this grouping together outside by my kitchen door.  The red scooter I found when I went barn picking.

I hope you enjoyed some of the pictures,  there was a lot more but I didn't want to over whelm you all so I just picked out the highlights.

Will be listing on my website soon!

I'll be listing a few items on my website hopefully later tonight or tomorrow morning.  Take a look and let me know what you think.

I wrapped all the presents, I'm sooo glad that is done!  I wrote out the cards and shipped out the gifts that had to be mailed.  I'm slowly but surely getting there.

I know I have to post my Christmas decorating yet.  I'll try to do that this weekend!

I hope you are all staying warm and taking some time for yourself in the mad rush we are in.

Christmas Concert

Hi Everyone!  Its nice to see I have some new followers, Welcome and Thanks for joining in.
Today I went to my Grand Daughter Keyarra's Christmas concert.  Keyarra is a first grader at Readfield Elementary School.  What a joy! Yes I could feel the tears weld up, only because watching her up there singing brought back so many memories of going to my own children's  Christmas Concerts.  Oh my, how fast they grow.
The children did such a wonderful job.  Some of the kids were dressed in their Christmas finest and some looked like they just got out of bed.  Some of them sang from the heart and some you could tell didn't know the words or were to shy to sing.  Some rolled their eyes and some picked their noses.  It didn't matter though they all did great!
Just to see the sparkle in their eyes and the joy on their face, whether they were proud because they felt they did good or because they spotted someone there that came to see them perform.  That's what it is all about.  I am so glad that I was able to be there and watch all of them perform.
After the concert Grandpa and I took Keyarra to Perks for build your own taco's to celebrate her great performance.  While we were there she had to sing her songs for some of our friends, because she said they were unable to attend the concert.  I thought that was so sweet for her to do that, usually she is so shy around people she doesn't know.  What a Blessed day!
I hope you all have a Blessed Day and some of your own memories to bring a smile to your face or tear to your eye.
Prim Blessings!  Robin

Blizzard Adin

Well we had a blizzard alright!  It started early Sat. morning  then it quit for awhile and started snowing again around 5:00 pm.  Our grand daughter Keyarra was over to spend the night.  At 8:00 p.m. is when it really started, my husband and Keyarra went to go brush their teeth for bed and my husband told her to turn the light back on that she just turned off.(he didn't realize mother nature was in control) the lights flickered for a while and then poof out went the lights again. The wind was blowing and howling releasing its flurry.  I lit some candles and continued cross stitching by candle light (I felt like a pioneer woman of days gone by) The lights would come back on and go off for the next couple of hours.  I had enough, time to turn in.  We woke the next morning to 11 inches of snow and the wind was still blowing, and the lights still flickered.  Keyarra was so excited to see all the snow she had to go outside with the dogs and make snow angels they had a blast, I looked at it as a back ache.  After breakfast it was time for Keyarra to go  home.  I crossed her across the street to watch her walk home(she just lives down the street from our house), I had to laugh, she would be walking across the drifts of snow on the side walks and then all of a sudden all you would see was the top of her pink hat.  Then she would reappear, I could see she was getting tired,so she then decided it was easier to crawl across the snow drifts the rest of the way home.

When I went out to shovel I looked around and a lot of the neighbor men were out snow blowing their driveways. They all looked like snowmen all covered in snow. I'm glad I don't know how to work the snow blower, I would rather shovel then to have all that snow blow in my face.  Then some nice man in a red pickup truck  plowed out our driveway, after he was done I saw he went down the street and anybody that didn't have their driveways cleared he plowed it out for them.  (Thank-You nice man in the red pickup truck) That is why I like to live in a small town everyone seems to look out for each other.

The storm has tamed down now, Hopefully!  I would have posted earlier but I couldn't connect to the internet  until now and I had to read two days worth of posts.

I hope you all stay warm!  Prim Blessings! Robin

The 1840 House Blog

Good Morning to everyone.
I just got in from shoveling that pretty white snow I talked about last night.  I changed my mind for now, I don't like that pretty white stuff. ( Just kidding.)  I did get my exercise though, I thought I would help the neighbors out and shovel they sidewalks too!  Sometimes it makes you feel good when you do a nice gesture for someone else.  And according to the weather guys were suppose to get another 8 to 10 inches tomorrow.  YIPPEE!
I have to mention that if you haven't been to The 1840 House Blog you need to stop on over.  Not only is she doing a giveaway her house is beautiful!  If any of you love primitives you will just love her house, it is very primitive.  Here is her link  http://b-r-child.blogspot.com/2010/12/pictures.html

Now that half of my morning is gone I need to get going.  I want to finish the Santa's I'm been working on before I have to go to the restaurant this afternoon. 
Have a great day and Prim Blessings!  Robin

I love it! We finally got some snow here in Wisconsin.  Now maybe it will feel  more like Christmas time.  Nothing like a little snow to get you in the mood.   I just got home from helping out at the restaurant and I can say I don't like driving in the snow though.  But it is beautiful, I love the way it sparkles when the lights reflect off of it, and it just puts you in the mood when people have their Christmas lights on.

I have a question and maybe someone can help me out. I've been trying to fix it but I just can't seem to get it to work.  Why doesn't my profile image(picture) show up any more when I post a comment on someone's blog.  It used to when I first started blogging now it doesn't.  Does anybody have any suggestions?   Thanks!

Martha Stewart Giveaway!

Have you all heard about the Martha Stewart Giveaway?  I've been watching her show the last couple of days and saw she is having a giveaway.  You all need to go to her website and sign up I know your chance of winning is like winning the lottery but if you don't you won't win.  Her giveaway is a sleigh full of presents that she gives away to her audience every day on her show(sleigh not included)  Oh it would be fabulous to win that!  Go to her website and click on sweepstakes  it's called the Martha's Merry Gifts Sweepstakes.  Kitchen Aid is also doing giveaways on her website too.  Good Luck to all that sign up!

All your blogs that I have been reading look so festive and cheery and it looks like everyone is so busy.  I've been trying, I did get my Christmas decorations done.  I will post pictures as soon as my husband takes them for me.  My camera doesn't work and God forbid you touch his.  (I asked for a new camera for Christmas) It is also deer hunting season here in Wisconsin and he has been hunting after work so that doesn't help to get the pictures taken either!  As far as the shopping and baking don't even ask!

Don't forget to check out my side bar there are a lot of giveaways I listed there. (some are ending soon)

Prim Blessings!  Robin
