FUN Sharing of our Kitties Christmas Day

Hi Sweet Friends!
Hope you all had a Wonderful time with family
during Christmas.
I took a few days off of blogging and the computer just
to rest and be with family.  We have had a good time and
enjoyeded a few fun activities with some friends.

This was how our tree looked Christmas morning brimming
with love goodies for hubby, daughter and myself.
I must admit, I am spoiled! My hubby
loves giving...its a gift that he has and even
though times have been hard, he still wanted to give.
Makes me love him so...

I also could NOT resist showing you some fun pictures.
This year hubby made sure all 3 of our kitties got a gift
CATNIP toys!!! YUM
They go WILD over it. We took many pictures of there
FUN.  It is amazing what affect this herb has on cats.
We laughed quite a bit too.
It truely is a RARE moment to capture all 3 within such
close proximity.  They of course, were checking
out each other's CATNIP toy.

Chloe also fell in love with a PEACOCK feather.  She
would go sit by it, indicating she wanted us to play with her.

The 3 kitties, Tiger, Chloe and Punkin all got their toys before
we opened our gifts.  How much fun it is to see them
frolicking and so playful!

YUMMMY!!! lol

Hope you enjoyed your visit!
Wishing you all a HAPPY NEW Year!

PINK Saturday

Welcome to PINK Saturday!

Today we were asked to share a Christmas Tradition with you.
For our family Christmas is the CELEBRATION
of Jesus' birth.  HE is the Reason we celebrate because
he IS Gods gift to mankind.  Thus, the reason we give
gifts to each other.

When my daughter was quite tiny we wanted to make sure that
our time of opening presents began with the reading of the 1st

I found this darling POP out page book that was unique and
grabbed my little ones attention.  She is now 18 and
we will continue to read this before we open our gifts.
I hope this will be a tradition that she passes on
to her own family when she has them.

Be sure to stop by our hostess Beverly of How Sweet The Sound
and enjoy visiting the other PINK participants!

Sharing a FEW Christmas Memories

Hi Friends!

I'd like to share a couple of very special Christmas goodies I
have that have deep sentimental meaning to them.

First...this darling quad of ANGELS that spell out NOEL.
These sweet lil guys were found in a drawer 10 years ago
when we were cleaning out my hubby's family home.

We lost my dear MIL in 1994 and 2 years later my hubby's
dad.  They lived a very simple life without a lot
of things.  So when I found these and was told
to keep them...I didn't ask twice!

So true story...2 years ago I was cleaning and purging,
BIG time...and last year when I went to find these
sweet angel..I COULD NOT find them anywhere.
I feared that in my haste I had put them in a box
to be donated..but I knew they meant more to me and
I just COULDNT have done that, right?

FOUND...this year when I brought out my Creche from my
momma, wrapped up in a bag these all fell out!
I SHREAKED as these were LONG lost treasures and they
were FOUND.

I quickly took them upstairs to my studio and glued them to this sweet box.
I fixed them good and now will NEVER loose them again! lol

This sweet ornament was gifted me too many
years ago that I cannot remember.  But it came from my
now 95 year old grams.

She was so very GREEN before that term was even coined!
It was an old greeting card that she re-used.  She glued toothpicks
and glitter to create a sweet and charming
treasured ornament!

But...most important...she wrote...

From Grandpa and Grandma
This was from a card you sent us a couple of
years ago!

A treasure indeed!

Have a blessed week all!

PINK Saturday ~ My PINK Victorian Living Room Part 2

This is No 2 of my PINK Living Room
that I do up for Christmas.
I have also been busy at work this week in other rooms
of my home.  If you LOVE to decorate and enjoy
visiting others who sure to check out other
post from me this week...I have lotsa pictures of
how I have decorated my home for Christmas 2009!

I'll let the pictures speak for themselves...ENJOY!

And the MOST important reason I Celebrate Christmas...
The birth of JESUS! Beverly again challenged us to share with you
something that is special to us.  Below my creche or nativity
was given to me by my mother right after I was married.  It
is 23 years old and is the 1st one I had as a married women.

It means so much because it is the TRUE reminder of this season to me.
I pull it out EVERY year and place it somewhere in my decor.
Last year it was at the base of my PINK tree.  A few years ago
I had placed it actually on a braches, surrounded by angel
in my tree as you enter my home.
So you can see it has a special place in my heart.

Thanks again for visiting with me and allowing me to share my PINKNESS
with you.  Isn't PINK such a happy and bright color?
Be sure to visit Beverly of How Sweet the Sound, our hostest for
others who are participate in PINK Saturday!
