My sister and I got a Lite Brite for Christmas the year I was 7. I was over the moon for this toy. We played with that thing all day Christmas Day. I think my Mama got tired of vacuuming up lite brite pegs though.
I think back and remember some other of my favorite Christmas gifts.
What are some of your favorite toys you received for Christmas?Hears hopeing you have a wonderful Christmas Season. Remember Jesus Is The Reason for The Season.

I was playing with it on photobucket.
So it's a little blurred. It's still a work in progress. How do you think it turned out?
And of course we can't forget "Handy" and his cute little Christmas pic. He was the easiest to work with I think. Lol! We couldn't get the cats to settle down for a picture. But I'll keep trying.

We got a table from my MIL's church and also some chairs. We set everything up buffet style. I tripled all the recipes I made and we had a ton of food. My Hubby's mom always tells me she's concerned we are going to run out. I didn't want to hear it this time. So I made plenty. Guess what? She is now telling me we had way to much. Sometimes there is no satisfying.
My Mama, made some cute little party favor/napkin holders. She placed 5 kernels of dried corn in each little cloth sack and before we all ate, Hubby told the story of the Pilgrims and the Indians and the 5 kernels of corn. We all ate until we couldn't eat anymore. I was exhausted and then of course we had to get up bright and early on Friday to hit those sales.
Now I am getting my house back to normal, and ready for Christmas. I personally think that we should carry the season of Thanksgiving over into our Christmas season. I'm thankful for the manager that held my savior as an infant and Thankful for the cross that held Him as He died for you and for me.

So let's see, what else.....Well, we had to purchase not one, but TWO new cords for the laptop which ran about $100 a piece. Then we finally ended up purchasing a new desktop computer. So that was well...NOT Cheap.
Next we have a chewed up cord that we haven't figured out what it goes to yet. It could be interesting when we finally do figure it out. We just have a piece of cord, chewed in half. Soooo I'm thinking this................
One Chewed up computer cord $100.00
Another Chewed up computer cord $100.00
One new desktop computer approx $400.00
But the love of Unconditional love of Puppy......PRICELESS
So in closing I would say, that while it maybe somewhat aggravating to deal with these puppy behaviors, YES it is worth it. But we are going to be attending puppy behavior classes. Of course that is another cost. lol!

But I love it when, the Holy Spirit prompts my mind with scripture. I was feeling lousy and all of the sudden the Steve Green song "He who began a good work in you" started pouring out of my mouth. Do you ever have that sort of thing happen to you? I went over to www.youtube.com and found this clip. I thought I would share it with you.
The book of Philippians is one of my favorite books too. The Apostle Paul is amazing. No matter what, he knows that Jesus is always there! And I am so thankful that God lead Paul to write this wonderful letter to the ancient church of Phillipi, and also it speaks right to my heart today in 2009! Amen!!
So I hope you enjoy this music and that it speaks to you like it did me. God's not finished with me or you yet!

I was in the garage earlier and I found this old album KC & The Sunshine Band. I was instantly brought back to another time. I could smell the warm summer air and feel the warm sunshine on my face. My friends and I used to go crusin' around in my 1978 Chevette (now there's a car) lOl! We had a blast. The radio was blaring and we were footloose and care free. I was the only one with a car, so everyone chipped in and gave a dollar for the gas fund and we took on the open road...Good Times:-)
I hope you enjoy this music......Happy Thursday......
