Elfs...wish you a Merry Chistmas

I hope all of my friends out there are having a good holiday season! We only have a few days 'til Christmas! I was reading Polly's blog at 'Counting Your Blessings' and she has the cutest elf video with herself dancing as an elf. I thought it was so cute that I decided to make two videos. I have one on each of my blogs. This disco dance stars my sons Cole and Garrett and my daughter Christy and my friend Stevie's little girl, Hailey and of I think this is so funny! Every time that I watch it, I just laugh and laugh! Garrett laughs so much when he watches it! I love to hear him laugh! Cole got a big kick out of it too! All he could say was "that's crazy!" LOL
Christy and Hailey haven't seen it yet. I can't wait to show them!

Merry Christmas! Hope you get a laugh out of this! Before you watch it, go to my playlist and turn it off. I know you are gonna laugh! This is the closest that I will ever get to dancing!

Sassy in the snow

These pictures were taken the other day when it snowed. I never know what order my pictures will load. I wanted the one with my little deck before Sassy made footprints on it, to be first. I had to put her out for her morning pee-pee and she did not want to go! She said that she would like to pass on the pee -pee break! She would much rather be inside with her mama decorating the little pink Christmas tree in the dining room where it is warm and cozy!

My little pink Christmas tree in the dining room. I was just starting to decorate it. I still have to finish it...if I can locate the box that the ornaments are in. I only have a few teapots and teacups and a few glass balls on it right now. I will take more pictures when I finish it.

Making memories...

This my tree this year. I'm not finished with it yet. We haven't even started the white tree in the den yet. I love how the colors and the roses match my china.

Getting the tree ready. Christmas is almost here. I have never been this late on my decorating before. Oh long as it gets ready before Santa comes!

I decided to decorate one night before I went to bed. I couldn't sleep so I thought I would try and get a little decorating done.

That same day ( you can see that I only have one rose on the tree.) before Garrett went to school. He is my handsome little man. He doesn't want to help me do this tree. He says that it's too girly. He will help me decorate the white tree in the den, soon.

Me and Aunt Jenny

This is me and my Aunt Jenny a few years ago. She and my Uncle Jerry have an auction house in Gillsburg, Ms. This was at their auction Christmas party. Isn't if funny that we wore the same sweater? We are so much alike!

I love going to their auction. I haven't been able to go for a while. It is only about 25 miles from my house. They have auctions every Monday night. Most of the time when I go, I get myself into trouble.(LOL) I always see something that I have to have! I have gotten some really good things there! Maybe after the holidays are over I will be able to go again. Maybe I will have some Christmas money.

Memories of a past-pink Christmas

Christmas is almost here. I decided to post a few old pictures of my dining room tree decorated in pink. I wanted to put new pictures of my tree this year, however I have misplaced my cord that hooks my camera up to my computer. I haven't been able to download any new pictures for a while. I hope that I find it soon!

I think this tree was so pretty. I just love pink!! I decorated my tree in red, ivory, and gold this year. I used silk roses in red and ivory. It looks elegant to me. I just HAD to use roses this year because after all I am a southern rose.
I hope everyone is having fun decorating and getting ready for the celebration of our Savior's birth!

Cole and his cousins

I have always loved these pictures of Cole and his 2 cousins. We were at mom's cabin for Christmas in Kentwood,La. I will post a picture of them together when I see them at Christmas this year. This was before our last babies were born. (Garrett and Chase)

Michael Lane Spears, Whitney Lynn Spears, and Jonathan Coleman Noll (Cole).

Family Christmas party in Hattiesburg

This was in 2002. It was Garrett's 2nd Christmas. We were all dressed up to go to our family Christmas party at my Uncle Danny and Aunt Darriene's house in Hattiesburg. This is my brother's little girl "Vanessa" with Garrett and Cole. I bought her that Christmas dress to wear to the party Cole didn't want to wear the sweater I had bought for him. (but he did, for me) Don't they all look festive? We went and picked up my grandma (the one that is in the nursing home now) and took her with us. We had a wonderful time.

The World of Coke

These were taken in Atlanta, Ga. at The World of Coke. We had such a good time. It was Garrett's first Christmas. It was so cold there! Cole was so protective of his little brother. He watched over him so closely. We went to the underground mall and to The World of Coke. We also took them to The Rocket Diner and Hard Rock Cafe. I have photos of that somewhere too. In a box, somewhere. I still have so much to unpack.

Cole and the BIG tree

Cole in the 'Mall Of Baton Rouge' in Louisiana. I think that he was about 6 years old here. Wasn't that the biggest tree? I don't know what got on his face in this picture. It looks like snow! LOL

Christmas at mom's cabin in the woods...

These were taken one Christmas at my mom's little cabin. My brother Robbie, me and my sister Melinda. Mom is with us in the first picture. You can see that she likes Southwestern decor. Her cabin was so cozy that year. They were not even through with it and you can see she had already decorated for Christmas. Look behind the cow skull hanging on the wall and you an see the insulation that had not been covered yet. LOL

Christmas 1991

(Christmas-1991) Me and Cole. He was 4 months old and I was 26 yeas old. Christy and Cole. She was 8 years old. It was Christmas Eve and it was just us living in our little apartment. We had a real tree and Christy and I decorated it together. I made most of the ornaments. They were ready for bed and in their p.j.'s and nightgown. They were all excited about Santa! The next morning they were so excited to get all of their gifts. Cole didn't really know what was going on but he loved it. I didn't have a lot of extra money to buy gifts but I did what I could. I bought them a few dollar store toys and they were so happy!

This was some pictures of my little apartment about 14 years ago. It didn't have a fireplace but I wanted a mantle to decorate. I bought the old mantle at a little antique store in Vicksburg, Ms. It was covered in layers and layers of white paint. It took forever to get off. I wanted it stained dark cherry. I think it turned out pretty. You can see that I loved PINK back then, too. I still have the old mantle in storage. One day, I want to get it out of storage and guess what I want to do with it? Paint it back WHITE of course.

Old Fashioned Christmas Tree

This was one Christmas that we decorated the whole Christmas tree with glass ornaments and gold satin bows. It was so pretty and old fashioned. The tree was 8 or 9 feet tall. It was real and I ended up leaving it up til February. I tried to keep it watered because I was so busy with work that I didn't have time to take it down. My dad came over and helped me get it down. Needles went everywhere!

Can't wait to decorate!

Another tree that we decorated at The Mole Hole. I found this picture when I was digging through an old box of photos this morning. I can't wait to decorate my trees this year. As soon as my floor is finished in my den...the decorating will begin! A couple of days ago, I picked up a china hutch that I had purchased at the vendor shop where I have 2 booths. Seems like I always spend the money that I make on my booths on things from other vendor's booths. It is so pretty and I REALLY needed it. I got a great deal on it because the lady was closing her booth and she didn't want to take it with her. I was so lucky! I would much rather have and old hutch than a new one. Of course, I'm gonna paint it...creamy white. I will post befores and afters on my other blog.

I just wanted to show a couple of funny pictures taken during the holidays a few years ago. This was my puppy 'Chico'. I dressed him in a little Christmas sweater that I took off of a teddy bear that I bought at the Dollar Tree. It fit him perfectly. I wish that I could dress that cheap!! This is Cole and Chico in front of the Christmas tree. Cole always loved to make silly faces whenever I would take his picture! He doesn't do that anymore...he is too cool for that now! He probably won't like me putting this picture on my blog either! LOL

I think he was in the 5th grade. He has always been so handsome. I ended up giving Chico to my step-daughter Erin. She already had one like him and she needed a friend. Chico was a little handful.
