Tick Tock Tick Tock

Time is fast approaching for my Christmas Bunco Party this Sunday and I should be busy with doing things around the house. Instead, I am here on my computer and downloading so many pics I took this week.  It is not very often that our state is covered in ICE and that made for great photo backdrops. 

Sooooo.......without further ado I want you to meet Timmie our Elf! He came into our home like two years ago I think.  Anyway, we love having him around and he is so much fun!  I just had a mini photoshoot with him and wanted to share one photo today. (I have more and some cute video too).  And, I have to share a photo collage of my dogs photoshoot we had (we had two this week).

Have a great day!

I just wanna play!

Wow! December, what a busy month and we have been iced in since Friday! North Texas got blanketed with a sheet of ice. I have enjoyed being indoors but have not got alot accomplished.  I have been doing little chores here and there but, mostly cooking and cleaning kitchen and having fun with Photography.  I got really sick all of a sudden on Friday night it scared me. I was feeling faint and so dizzy and had ringing in my ear and it would not stop and felt like it was stopped up.  I finally went to bed and prayed that I would not get the Flu or anything.  I woke up Saturday feeling much better. 

I hate to admit it but, I am still putting away Fall and Halloween and have been decorating for Christmas in the midst of it all. I am hosting Bunco next Sunday and I must have this house completely decorated and cleaned. I still have shopping to do for the party and for Christmas. I proscratinate so much it's not funny anymore.  Just because I have too much time on my hands I put it off until the last minute then I am stressing and driving my husband crazy!  All he cares about is me getting all my "sh**" off of his pool table so that he can play pool.  I was doing real good putting it all away until my Christmas Bunco got cancelled and rescheduled due to the inclement weather.  Oh well, I did work on cleaning the game room yesterday and some today!  It's hard enough keeping the downstairs clean and besides no one goes upstairs and you can bet that on Thanksgiving I did not let anyone go up there! LOL!

Speaking of Thanksgiving we had a nice one spent with my Family and a couple of close friends. My husband deep fried two turkeys and I roasted one.  My family can eat alot and my husband can live on Turkey sandwiches!

He has been hunting quite a bit since opening day. He is determined to get a Buck!! I have not been to the gym in over two weeks and when I go back next week I know it will be tough!!!! I have slacked off on exercise and eating right!!! I keep tellling myself it's the Holidays!!! Bad excuse.

Here are a few pics.  Have a wonderful week. The news just reported all major ISD's are closed tomorrow and a few business closed or delayed openings.  All of the roads are iced over again and the Fog is heavy.  I thank God I do not have to get up to go anywhere in it. 

As you can see from the pics below my dogs were not in the mood for their Christmas Photo shoot! It is getting harder and harder to photograph them together bc they attack each other.

Notice the Cinnamon Rolls I made from Scratch! They were yummy and soooo sweet!
PS-I laid on solid ice to take that pic!!! Well, my husband was the photographer! I will post pics of our Tree later this week. It is Big and Beautiful! And, pictured below is Timmie, our Elf on the shelf!

Hello November!!!

Well I had a busy month in October and a fun one! Halloween is my FAVORITE time of year!  I love decorating our home inside and out. I also put together a formal tablescape a Halloween "Skeleton" theme! We went to the State Fair of Texas and it was fun and the weather was perfect!   We passed as Senior Citizens and got in free! LOL!

Went to a pumpkin patch which had a huge corn maze and hay rides. We do not have kids so we did not partake in any of that!  I tried to plan a photo shoot with my nieces and nephews at the patch, but with their schedules of school and after school actiivites it was impossible!  Had to cancel the pumpkin carving party too! BLAH!!! oh well! With God's grace there is always next year!

Now time to take down all the Halloween decorations and get my house back in order for Thanksgiving!  So much to do!!!

I hope to post more than one pic of  Halloween at our home. BTW, our home was used as a backdrop for Channel 11 Weather report. Our weatherman lives on our street and for the last three years they have broadcast in our cul-de-sac. It is always a fun time and this year we had over 100 kiddos.   I have some video to share once I download it.

Here are a couple of pics I wanted to share with you all. I even baked cookies for my trick-or-treaters. Here is a pic of me and my husband. Me - The Queen Bee and Duck Dynasty!

May already???

Wow! Where does time go? We have been busy as usual. Gardening, Entertaining, Parties, Limo Rides, Out to Dinner with friends and family celebrating birthdays. A trip to Shreveport to Gamble.....on and on. Fun nonetheless. I have so many pictures to share but short on time today. I woke up late and had to do laundry and now head to the Gym!

Here is a picture of our Garden at night and the grill/bar area. We love to sit out here in the evenings and sip on a glass of wine or a ice cold beer.  We have gotten a few heavy rain showers and it has made our Garden bloom! I need to go and pick out the onions as they are now ready to eat. My lettuce is growing big and is so pretty. I have taken some of it and made a salad.  Yummy! Enjoy these pics for now. Make it a great day!
