Mr. Badger, Advent, and HELLO!

 Thank you for all the kind and connecting comments on my table post.  I love reading about your remembering and your sweet philosophies.  The sheep above is a photo Badger's current hostess shared with me.  I had it made big and it came out with a lavender shade.  I still haven't hung it in the sheep room (our family room!)  BUT . . . Mr. Badger is enjoying his time at Blackberry Rambles!  He even had his portrait painted by Heather's mom!  Click over and share the journey!
 It's Advent and Appetizers again tomorrow, but this time we are eating pizza and chicken wings because the three princesses will be spending the night and the day with us tomorrow.  It's their parents' anniversary so Mommy and Daddy will have a nice dinner out, a movie, and a quiet (except for the herd of pets) evening at home.  I won't have as much time to prepare appetizers, you see.
 Tonight we'll watch a Christmas movie (Miracle on 34th Street?) and fall asleep listening to Julie Harris read Stuart Little.  Wahoo! I thought I'd read this and another Christmas book to the girls.

 This morning I had my usual phone conversation with our Brad.  We talked for an hour and a half about tea, books, writing, writers, Christmas, cars, and other good things.  We're good talkers.  Ha!

 My mama organized a bus trip to Seattle today.  They went to the theater to see "The Sound of Music".  She lined everything all up and when they return my brothers will have pizza ready at her house.  She's so wonderful, don't you agree?
This granny took a nap today and now I need a snack.  Tacos for dinner.  All is very red and Christmasy.  All is well.  I am thankful to pause for a moment and say hello to YOU.  YOU are very good.

You sure do know how to make time with your grandchildren memorable and special. I am taking notes.
The fruit and vegetables look very colorful and appealing as I think I've already overindulged on the cookies.

What a lovely and festive post, dear Pom. That photo of the sheep is a keeper.

I like the old fashioned cover of Christmas Tapestry. Love old children's books. I like living for a while in those simpler times as I immerse myself in the story.

It is always so nice to read about what is going on at your house and all of the wonderful ways you share you life with others.
I hope you have a lovely day.
