The kids flew our earlier this week and we are on our way as you read this....on our way home to Arkansas to be with our families and friends for the holidays after 17 hrs on the road. As you make the last turn towards my parents home you can see the lights.....the big old fashion red and green lights outline the house and these red bag lights will lead us up and around the drive to their home on the hill....
In every room you will find a gorgeous Christmas tree covered in antique and vintage ornaments that have been collected over the years, as well as several new ones for us to find and discover. Each tree is different...Santa's in the family room, In the Play Room Hand Made Angels the 5 grandkids made when they were all under the age of 5, now they are 19 to 25. Yes they still have a play room at Granna and Papa's....it is filled with legos, dolls, books and games, a tv & DVR and big boy and girl toys! Cookie Cutters in the kitchen, Airplanes in one bedroom, Dolls in another....15 trees in all! As much as I love all the trees and Mom's 300+ Santa collection my favorite part is the Nativity scene my dad made.
And this is home.....atleast for the next 2+ weeks. Christmas and New Years with all the kids, parents, siblings and their families, girlfriends & boyfriends, and friends from our many years of living in Arkansas.
Thank you to those that visit here, leave comments, send emails, cards and little surprises through out the year....My wish for you is to have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
See you in 2009!!!!!
