LOOK WHAT THE MAIL-LADY LEFT ME!

 MELISA, MY FRIEND FROM OHIO SENT ME THIS BOX OF GOODIES.  I WAS SHOCKED BECAUSE I THOUGHT IT WAS STUFF FOR ME TO DONATE.
IS THIS A PAY IT FORWARD OR A PASS IT ON? BECAUSE I WILL PASS ON AS MUCH AS I CAN SO OTHERS CAN FEEL THE LOVE.
 MELISA MADE THE LITTLE BOXES AND EMBELLISHMENTS  I THINK. I'LL HAVE TO ASK HER FOR SURE. THE LITTLE BOXES WILL GO TO THE NURSING HOME FOR CHRISTMAS WHEN I FIND JUST THE RIGHT LITTLE THING TO GO INSIDE THEM. I JUST LOVE THEM.
 SHE COLORED THE LITTLE PICTURES ABOVE. I'LL PUT THEM TO USE WITH MY SCRAP BOOKING.
 11 LITTLE SANTA DOOR KNOB HANGERS FOR THE NURSING HOME.
LAST BUT NOT LEAST IS THIS BEAUTIFUL BLANKET FOR EGF. I'LL MAKE A LITTLE DRESS OUT OF ONE OF THE WEDDING GOWNS TO GO WITH IT. IT IS SO SOFT!
THANK YOU SO MUCH MELISA FOR YOUR KINDNESS AND YOUR FRIENDSHIP. WHAT WOULD MY LIFE BE WITHOUT YOU?  I AM SO BLESSED TO HAVE YOU FOR A FRIEND. LOVE YOU BUNCHES!

REMEMBERING

TODAY I FIND COMFORT IN YOUR LIFE NOT YOUR PASSING.
I FIND STRENGTH IN YOUR WILL TO SURVIVE.
YOUR LAUGHTER REMINDS ME TO ENJOY LIFE.
YOUR LOVING HEART REMINDS ME TO BE KIND TO OTHERS.
TODAY I SMILE AT YOUR MEMORY NOT MOURN FOR THE ONES NEVER KNOWN.
I THINK OF YOUR GIVING HEART AND REMEMBER TO SHARE.
YOUR LOVE FOR OTHERS REMINDS ME TO HOLD MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS CLOSE.
YOUR EYES REMIND ME TO LET OTHERS SEE MY LOVE FOR THEM.
 TODAY I REMEMBER TO FORGIVE OTHERS AND MYSELF SO I CAN SEE YOU IN HEAVEN.
YOUR TOUCH REMINDS ME TO BE GENTLE.
MY LONGING TO PLEASE YOU REMINDS ME TO BE THE BEST I CAN BE.
I AM WHO I AM BECAUSE OF YOU.
REMEMBERING!
FOREVER YOUR LOVING DAUGHTER, KATHY

SNOW

 SNOOPY DURING OUR EARLY MORNING WALK. HE LOVED IT. HIS NOSE HAD TO BE FROZEN BECAUSE HE WAS SMELLING DOWN IN THE SNOW. YOU CAN SEE THAT  THE SNOW HAS A CRUST ON TOP BECAUSE OF THE FREEZING RAIN.
 ON OUR NEXT WALK IT WAS FROZEN A LOT MORE. HE HAD A VERY HARD TIME WALKING. AS YOU CAN SEE HERE HE WAS ON TOP, TWO STEPS LATER AND HE FELL THROUGH. AT FIRST HE WAS A LITTLE WORRIED ABOUT IT BUT SOON SAW THAT HE WAS SAFE THEN TRIED TO RUN. THAT DIDN'T WORK OUT FOR HIM.
 THIS IS THE MAIN ROAD THAT RUNS IN FRONT OF OUR HOUSE. SOME TRUCKS AND 4-WHEELER'S WERE BRAVING THE SNOW.
 THIS IS AT THE CHURCH UP THE ROAD FROM US. I DON'T KNOW IF THE SNOW DID THIS OR NOT. WE WALK TO THE CROSSROAD THEN GO BACK THE WAY WE CAME. TODAY BECAUSE OF THE SNOW WE WENT DOWN THE MAIN ROAD AND SAW THIS. THEY HAVE MEETINGS HERE IN THE WARMER MONTHS.
WHEN I SAW THIS I JUST LOVED IT. SNOOPY AND I DID AS THE SIGN INSTRUCTS, WE STOPPED, ADMIRED THE VIEW THEN TOOK THIS PICTURE. THANK YOU LORD FOR ALL OUR BLESSING.
JUST FOR THE RECORD I'LL BE HAPPY IF THIS IS THE LAST SNOW WE HAVE THIS WINTER. WE DON'T GET SNOW THAT OFTEN AND THIS MAKES TWO TIMES THIS WINTER. I'M DONE WITH IT, BRING ON SPRING.

ALLIE AND BLAKE

 THIS IS ALLIE WITH THE HAT AND SCARF I MADE HER.
 THIS IS BLAKE WITH HIS HAT AND SCARF.
I FORGOT TO PIN THE FLOWER ON RIGHT. YOU CAN SEE THE PIN.
THEY ARE SO ENJOYING THE SNOW. LOOK AT THOSE CUTE LITTLE RED FACES.
