 what better way to spend a dreary Sunday afternoon...
at a Christmas Dance Gala...
it is a good thing I don't have a grand daughter...
my pocket book would have been a lot lighter...
I did win a door prize....
a girly basket of goodies...
will be perfect gift for my great niece...

 the studio was a packed audience...
lucky for me I'm short...
I managed to wiggle my way to the front...
to sit on the floor...
so I could see these cuties dance...
or....
 cling to their teacher...(my daughter)...
the triplets started the crying....
 not at all impressed by an audience....

 this one didn't want to leave the stage...
once her dance was over....
so she stayed and danced with the next group...

 there were cameras...and phones...
snapping and recording...
lot's of laughing and clapping....

they also had a silent auction...
I was in a bidding war with a 8 year old boy...
at the last minute I won...
he was not real happy with me...
but I really wanted the basket...
and I wanted to donate to the dancers...
and no I don't feel guilty about it...
the basket will be split with Stringbean and my niece...
 I do not have my tree up yet....
we are getting a live one...
I want it to still be fresh on Christmas...
we will get it this weekend...

 Stringbean and I decorated his play room...
we have made Christmas ornaments...
a Christmas village...
made with frosting...ice cream cone turned into a tree...
sprinkles... Peep trees...chocolate santas...
he did a great job...
Today we baked Sugar cookies...
I cheated a bit...
bought the roll of sugar cookies...
then we rolled them out...
cut...and added sprinkles...
he was happy as a clam...
 after several snags...
my Christmas cards are ready to mail...
just have to add a stamp...and send...

looking forward to our Fun Girl Christmas party on Saturday...
with a Ugly Sweater contest...
I have mine already to go...
Keeping Stringbean Saturday night...
so my Son and DIL can celebrate...
my son's 31st birthday...
now just how did that happen????
Next week it Linda...from Linda's Life Journal...
annual Christmas Tea...
this will be my third year to go...
so excited to see her amazing Christmas house...
she decorates every room...including her Gazebo...
you could spend hours just wandering around....
enjoying all the beauty...
Lot's to look forward too...

That little girl crying may just be the cutest thing I've ever seen! She did not look happy, but so cute!

I'm not putting up a tree this year. Decorated a bit, but we will have no little kids here this year and I'm just not into it!

What a fun time at the Dance Gala!!! I have missed so many fun things lately!!

Looking forward to Saturday! The parties and celebrations start for me today!!! Amber and I are going to see Andrea Bocelli tonight!

I have my cookie dough ready to bake! I have my 'ugly' sweater ready to wear! Did you KNOW that is a whole thriving BUSINESS??? Still need to look around for a white elephant gift and I need to buy my food dish ingredients!

The house is just about ready! Only the gazebo to go! Thank goodness it will be dark because all the leaves and brown make the yard ugly in front and Sanford and Son continue to live in the back!!!
