Hello prim friends!!  Busy busy busy here!  Today I finished up all the wrapping and preparing for Christmas so now I will have a couple of days to set back and relax...yeah right I am a clean freak so there is always something that needs to be cleaned. There's  never any relaxing around here I'm always cleaning  We go to my parents house and my in laws for Christmas dinner so I dont have to worry about cooking I do get to enjoy a great meal without all the stress of preparing it.  Here are the last of my Christmas pictures.  Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas with their friends and family!!

I'm still here and Chrismas pics

Hello prim friends! Hope everyone is having a great weekend!  I am still here I just haven't  had time to post with all the craziness of the decorating, shopping, and also sick kids.  They are all better now thank goodness.  I have been reading everyones blogs and looking at all the great prim chrismas eye candy but havent had time to comment much.  Everyones decorations look great! After thanksgiving thinsg get really busy around here. Normally we have basketball practice and games for both boys, but i'm very sad this year because they didn't want to play. This is the first year that they have not played in 6 years so I am really missing it.  I have been doing alot of shopping for the kids and am almost finished.   Every night when Paige goes to bed I try to wrap a few presents because I am running out of hiding  Well enough rambling now for the fun stuff...  Christmas pics. Here are some pictures and I'll be posting more in a few days.

Here is the snowman ornament that I received from Marie at Primitives by Olde Lady Morgan

Halloween ~Simple Goods show~ and Swap Goodies

Hope everyone had a great Halloween! Sorry I've been busy and have not had time to post. Halloween here was very cold brrr!! We even had snow on the ground, not as much as some of my blog poor Amy at Bumble Bee Lane had 8 inches.   We only had about an inch left because most had melted. My daughter Paige was dressed as a witch ( a nice witch as she called My two boys Justin and Jordan don't really trick or treat anymore as they are 12 and 13 so they just dress up and give out candy and try to scare all the little goblins that are out.  We had a birthday party bonn fire for my Jordan's 12th birthday on Saturday. His birthday is on Halloween but we always have is party earlier.  Then on Sunday I worked on some projects that I am doing for a swap.  My hubby and I are making a buttery for my kitchen and so we finished one part of it this weekend too.  I'll post pics of the buttery later.

Here is the exciting part!  Tomorrow me and the hubby are leaving to go to Mt. Vernon, Ohio to the Simple Goods primitive antique show.  I am so EXCITED!!! This is the first BIG prim show that I have been to because we don't have any big shows in our area.  It is going to be so fun, for me of   Not sure how much fun the Mr. will be having but I am going to be having a blast.  He says he will just find the food and that's where he will stay so I guess he'll be having fun  We are not taking any of the kids with us or at least we are planning on having no kids. My mother in law is watching them but  Paige doesn't like being away from mommy so we will see. Jill Peterson is supposed to be there so I hope to get her new book and cookbook and have her sign them.  I will post pictures  of my prim finds when I get back.

I received a great surprise package in the mail today!  It was swap goodies from Eve at Lee Hill Primitives.  Eve and I are partners for the Christmas at the Cabin swap that Amy from Bumble Bee Lane is hosting.  Eve handmade everything for me.  She is so talented.  I love her prims! Thank you so much for everything Eve!!
