Oh Boy!!!! Full Speed Ahead!

The PreParty Party!
Friday night was the Festival of Trees in Baker City.
See the bid number? I wrote 'do not use' on it!
Just a reminder!!!

Grandma Pat and Me!
Why yes, I did get a new haircut!
Thanks for noticing!!!

Hello All!

Well, the holidays are rumored to be here in 18 days. Each morning the kids race to the advent calendar to move the star one day closer to Christmas. On school days they have to be fully dressed before getting this honor!

My lovely mother Pat was here for a few days and we had a blast! She was my date at a huge Gala in town on Friday night, and yesterday she helped us cut down our Christmas Tree.

Dick has been gone for a few days, and the kids and I are on a constant chore fest. We moved the sheep without incident on Friday - with the exception of the Llama throwing a fit! A certain someone forgot to tell us about 2 hot wires along the base of the fence and the Llama was having no part in touching them. Sissy La La..

Today, I spent hours dedicated to trimming the tree, and working on our 2009 Calendar. Thank goodness for our Mexican Hot Cocoa. This year we picked a fir, and boy, are my fingers sore! Ouchie!

And, a snow storm is (finally!) trying to grace us with it's presence... We haven't seen snow since October. Let's get this snow party started!

My December Daily project is just not turning out very daily! I'll share that later!

Take Care,
Andi

It is easy to see where your beauty comes from. Grandmas Pat is a very pretty lady.
What a great idea to auction off decorated trees. I'll bet it was a fun night.
Since the hub is away at one of the busiest times of year, I see why you need a back-up husband.
