  2. Wow..You have been busy..I will be busy tomorrow and Friday when Nellie is here...Is that a book you got from Amazon...or a movie?
    We have a NEW T V being delivered tomorrow and we might not be home...coming Fed X but I called them to tell them to put in garage. It is a gift from a friend for Christmas and Billy is going to be sooo happy ..I hope he doesn't wet his pants. I will be posting about it when it gets here and all the other wonderful gifts we got :)
    Take another break and watch some more movies :)

  3. Your gift bags look so pretty and you make a GREAT elf, LOL! I just finished dipping about 100 pretzel rods in white chocolate, putting into small baggies and tying them off with silver ties for the reception, I am pooped:( I think I have seen that movie on tv before, yrs. ago. I hope you take a well earned break and relax for a bit:)

  4. I have that movie and love it too! MERRY CHRISTMAS GINA!! Rest up before Valentines Day! lol

  6. Hi Gina

    Merry Merry Christmas !

    Wow.. you have been baking up a storm !

    And all ready for Christmas ! I still have some gifts to wrap and cookies to bake.

    A great book, Seasons. I bought that quite a while ago and I still enjoy looking through it.

    And that looks like a good movie !

    Christmas Blessings !


  7. Pretty penny rug !

    enjoy & relax!

  8. Gina,
    Not sure if I've seen that Christmas movie before.
    Your penny rug turned out great!!
    I have that book...had it for years and it is a good one. You'll love it!
    You goodies bags look so cute!!
    My package didn't come today...maybe it will come tomorrow while I'm at the grocery store. I hope, hope, hope!!
    Have a Merry Christmas!!

  9. Now you can relax and enjoy!

    Merry Merry Christmas! May your stocking be filled with blessings!

    Hugs, Carrie

  10. My goodness honey you have been busy! Love your rug!
    Just could not let Christmas come and go without catching up on you and wishing you a very Merry Christmas

  11. Found your blog throgh "Country Pleasures". I love it! I will be back. Blessings to you and yours!

  12. Gina I love your penny rug. Wow have you been baking, yummy. Wish I could stop by. He He
    I would love to see the movie you are talking about, I love movies like that!!! Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!!!

  13. I believe all the Christmas packages arrived! The funny thing is Michael has them locked up and won't pass any of them out until Christmas morning! LOL

    He says the men are all mad at him. I love that picture in my mind. These special ops tough guys whining that they can't open their presents until Christmas! It will be even more special when they do since they've been waiting! They have to work on Christmas, so it will be something to make it feel a little like Christmas. Thank you so much for doing stockings. Merry Christmas!

  14. Hi Gina! I am going to check that movie out. I'll look on Amazon! Did you ever see "The House Without A Christmas Tree". It's an old 1972 movie. Love all the pussycats dressed in their XMas finery!
