  1. Love your pics Carla!! I'm with you on NOT shopping on black Friday! I much prefer to put up the tree and get some decorating done! YES on A Charlie Brown Christmas...I don't like the Rudolph show...blasphemy, I know! :-) Love and hugs!!

  2. Yes, Charlie Brown all the way! I love the little glass birds on your tree! What a wonderful Christmas you will have with your son home!

  3. You're getting into the holiday spirit! Love it.

  4. Glad Sam will be home for Christmas. That will be a great gift for you. Love you and Mr. Snowman.

  5. Sounds like you're really getting into the spirit of Christmas. You must be so looking forward to the 21st!

  6. What a cute photo of you kissing snowman...will he pass the kiss on to Santa? Enjoy your day sweet friend. And thanks for the fun comment on my alligators. I knew you would love those babies! Holiday hugs!

  7. I with you, Carla, on everything except fruitcake! I want chocolate cake! I know you are thrilled that you son will be home and you will all be together.

  8. What a great photo of you kissing the snowman. I love fruitcake too. I used to make one every year but haven't made any in the last 5 years I think. Cutting back on sweet. I'm not ready for Christmas and my house is not decorated yet.
    Stay safe, Hugs, Julia

  9. A fun post!! LOVE the snowman photo!!

  10. That was neat! I would answer very similarly, except there is no snow, unless something freaky happens. That's is usually in March, because cold air comes down from Alaska for some weird reason. It has happened at least twice since my daughter was 2, and they say every 10 years, so that's more like every 8.

    He looks so grownup in his uniform! It is so sweet that you are all waiting for him. xoxo Su

  11. Cute! I like your kind of glam! Happy Holidays!

  12. I love following along and answering in my head! Fun! Merry Christmas!

  13. Loved seeing all of your photographs.

    All the best Jan
