I got an email last week telling me I was going to be featured on FRIENDLY  FRIDAY! Since this will be the first time visit for some of you, I thought I better give you a quick look…I am a Wife of 38 years to the same MAN, a Mom to Greg and Amanda, Mother-in-Law to Dana and Micah and GRAMMY to  Parker, Jack, Grayson and Austin…I am also a Christmas Decorator of twenty years, a lover of football, a lover of Disney. This blog began as a way to  document our lives..and it has turned into one of the most fun things I have ever done.  I have met the nicest people, and I even met one recently…I  look forward to reading their stories everyday.  The fact is EVERYONE HAS A STORY. 
Then on a whim I decided that people were so intrigued by my occupation that this might be a great venue to PAY IT FORWARD. holiday tree
I started the holiday blog, and there is certainly a story that goes along with the BLOG NAME.  You can read that story here and here..I am in  the process of getting a new design on the holiday blog…so be watching for that soon. This blog is really to give you tips, share pictures of the trees and homes we decorate and I give lots of prizes.  I am always willing to answer any questions you have or help you solve tree decorating problems. 
If you read this blog, you will know my passion in life is “the little's”!   I do not take for granted that all four of my grandchildren live within 30 minutes of me and two live 5 minutes away.  Some of my most read posts are here, here and here. Once I started looking back at the posts, there were many sweet memories that even I enjoyed reading again.  I am so glad that I documented them. 
If you are new you are always welcome here.  One day you may get football, one day you may get traveling, and one day may be loaded with prayer requests. I am so glad that you stopped by.   I AM SO THANKFUL for ALL MY BLOG BUDDIES.  You ENRICH my LIFE.
