Good Intentions...

Christmas has come and gone and no cards were made by these two hands - I can't believe it!!  I had all good intentions....but then, you know what they say about "the road to 'you know where' being paved with good intentions!!  Where did the time go?!! What have I been doing? I remember saying to my DH sometime before Halloween, "if we don't get cracking right now, the holidays will be here before we know it and we won't be ready!" Well...guess we didn't get crackin', did we?!! 

Our youngest grandchildren
We had a such a wonderful Christmas!! Our children and grandchildren all live within about 5 miles of us and our oldest granddaughter, who lives in Chicago, came home for a few days so we were super blessed to have everyone here with us!  Let's face it....our families and friends make the holidays!  Who needs presents! We love our grandchildren, and our grown children are such fun to be around and they're just nice people to spend time with! We're very lucky.

My oldest granddaughter & my daughter
A few short days and we will begin a new year - where did 2010 go?  I retired towards the end of 2009 and thought I'd spend lots of time stamping and scrapbooking all those photos I never had time to do. There was more stamping done when I worked full time!! I think I need to make a New Year's resolution to make better use of my time..... maybe finding a place to do some volunteer work. There are so many people in need these days, it would be nice to help out.

Anyway....just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas (late, I know!) and a Happy, healthy and peaceful New Year!!
