Merry Christmas!

We would like to extend a Merry Christmas to all! We are having a cool white Christmas here in Minnesota…we got some fresh snow and it is way below zero.

The Shiny Brite tree is complete.

Here is our Christmas Letter 2017.  I don’t have a photo of my finished Christmas card…I mailed them all off without a photo of the finished card… they were all pretty and glittery.

  5. Merry Christmas you 3! I love the Christmas letter....my sentiments exactly. Why I think I will somehow be less tired or get more energy is wishful thinking. I think it is pretty much downhill from here. I get my pajamas on and I'm in bed before my grandchildren who are still fairly young! LOL! Oh well, we're still in the game even if they changed the rules on us! Have a wonderful day and many blessings from my house to yours! Love, Sam, Nitty, Annie, Grace and Miss Peeps xxxooo

  7. Oboy! The Shiny Brite tree is finished, and I just love to look at it. The merriest of Christmases to you and your wonderful family, Connie. Thanks for the great Christmas letter. I laughed (ruefully) my way through it. Chance is still my favorite internet dog, always will be. :-)

  8. Best Christmas letter ever!!! Thanks for sharing it and thanks for sharing your life with us year round. It's a gift to us every day - - -which means you should have received a bunch of gifts from all your readers - - right? Check with your postal worker. He/she probably couldn't take the burden of delivering so much and kept them all.
    Merry Christmas! Stay safe in that weather.

  15. I really like the letter. It was fun to read and it did express what goes on in our lives these days. We still can't find things but we couldn't before we moved. Your shiny brite tree is so wonderful. It does show that you have added a few more to the collection. I have a batch in some canning jars somewhere but they didn't get put out this year. I have some old faded one on the Christmas room tree. I hope your family had a great time today. Our Chicago area people have backed out on plans. Being alone is what we are use to so that still works for us too. Have a day of rest tomorrow.

  17. The shiny brite tree is lovely and the Christmas letter so apt for many of us at that certain age! I hope your Christmas was a good one.

  18. Oh, wonderful! The Shiny Brite tree is done! Bet you are so glad to have finished that task. Hope you enjoyed a wonderful time with family, and that all were able to travel both to and from safely in the snow. White Christmases are pretty and nostalgic, but not so hot for driving long distances.

    And yes, your Christmas letter brought a smile. Merry Christmas to you and yours and best wishes for another year!

  19. Merry Christmas! Your tree is lovely and your letter made me chuckle :-) Thank you so much for the beaded glasses cords! Great idea to put the little latches at the end. That way the rubber glasses holders can be unsnapped and the 'cord' can be used as a necklace or bracelet. Multipurpose...I love it!

  22. Merry after Christmas to you Connie.
    I so enjoyed your holiday letter - yes it gave me a smile and several laughs as well.

    We were away tending to some things for nearly 3 weeks and just arrived back in NH barely a week before the 25th so lots of catching up to do. We also had a white Christmas and now very frigid temps are setting in. Hope you are keeping warm and cozy and sending best wishes for a Happy New Year to all!

  23. Tell Far Guy that his is my most favorite letter I receive! So glad you had family close for the holiday and I cannot believe how big those kids are! Now on to next year and we too are in the deep freeze. Not making the AZ and NV family very happy here I can tell you!
