Merry Christmas to my family & friends—-

It is 8:45 pm Christmas evening, just remembering back on this wonderful day.

We started with a fantastic breakfast prepared by our daughter-in-law Jenny – she made unbelievable pancakes – A full batch of bacon pecan pancakes and a full batch of apple pecan – they were delicious 

Along with these amazing pancakes, was bacon then topped off with mimosas – 

After breakfast we played with Clark (Aly’s cat) he is so darn cute.

Sat around and listened to music and watched a few TV shows.

I began to prepare dinner around 4:00.  

We all sat down around 5:30 to Italian wedding soup. Then a pork roast with apple almond stuffing, wild rice and brussel sprouts. 

Followed by many cookies… 

Kristin & Jenny brought with them a huge container of homemade cookies and I also made 4 different types – so needless to say we had lots of sweets.  

Spending time with family is amazing,  We were so happy to be with each other.   We are so blessed to have the love we have for each other.

I made special gifts for the girls as well – they received them on Christmas Eve – 

All 3 girls received gold necklaces with stamped initials on them –

They loved them – it makes me so happy they really love my work.

God has been so good to me, I now have a new craft which I am using to make others smile.

I pray it will be successful.

Merry Christmas to you all.

Much love,


Love & Family

A Chair for each of us ~


Hi Again-

I had to post this picture because it reminds me of our Sister’s Weekend.

My sister Cathy usually has a sister’s weekend sometime in July – what fun we all have seeing each other – telling stories of our lives in the past year and drinking wine, yes we all love our wine.

Life with my sisters, is just wonderful.  I love them all so much and we can’t wait to be with each other time and time again.

We all have such an amazing relationship, and we all owe that to our parents.  They taught us the meaning of family – with 8 daughters my mom was always cooking, cleaning and doing wash. (God Bless her)

Just now I am on the phone with my sister Josie (for the 3rd x today) we talk about everything from decorating to “what are you making for dinner”  Sometimes we just laugh and laugh and laugh…..for no reason.

We all live in different parts of the U.S. but we are all connected by our hearts.

Much love


p.s. Cathy this is for you…Love you honey

Hi Everyone-

Hope you are all having a wonderful Christmas season.

 I baked some cookies today (chocolate chip & oatmeal raisin) had a few and Pete said they are great.

It is 10:50 on Friday night the 13th of December, I am waiting for our daughter Aly to arrive, with her little cat Clark. 

She left LA this morning so its been a long day for her.

She will be in NY for a few weeks so we will get to be with her for a while.

It’s always so good to have your family home for the holidays.

Kristin & Jenny should be arriving on the 23rd of December and stay a few days with us.  

I always love having my girls around – they always make me happy.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year.

God Bless

Much Love – Rose
