Dear Santa

Today is Saturday, December 11, 2010. Wow, has the cold weather set in here! We have had below freezing here at night for the last couple of weeks and suppose to continue through the next week too. Cloudy with a spray of rain, could we get snow? I can only dream.....

The last few weeks have been busy with getting things done, or trying to anyway. There just doesn't seem to be enough hours in a day. But then if we had more hours, we would probably just try to get more out of them.

Today I am going to get my Yule Log made, I know, I usually have mine made by the first of December. Then to finish up the candy that has to be sent out in the mail Monday or Tuesday. Tomorrow I will start on the photo album for the in laws. George was able to get a couple of their old black and white photos when they were first married. Those will be used for the cover, going to have to get the wood tomorrow and get moving on it. Shouldn't take about three days to get done. She complains that she never gets "real" pictures any more. So I thought I would get the kids to take pictures of them selves with wives and their kids, passing a disposable camera around. This started about three months ago and I have one that has gave me back the camera. UGH...

The girls are doing fine and still laying, this makes me so proud of them with all of this cold weather. I think they are starting to take to different boxes to lay in. The eggs are in four different boxes now instead of just two. The babies are getting bigger, but I do believe that they are all males. While clipping their wings last weekend I checked they legs and all of them have nubs. Not to mention they are doing the bowing up to each other. I am hoping that maybe next spring one of the girls will want to sit, I think they are still to young yet. That would be so cool.

I still haven't gotten my computer back up and running, not sure when I am going to have time to do it at this point. Maybe after the holidays are over and things are back to normal or at least my normal.

Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live today. ~Brightest Blessings~


  1. Real pictures, I get the same complaint. LOL
    Thank you for adding my beading kit to your treasury! Now head over to my blog and check out OWOH. It is the last year that Lisa will host this wonderful event.
    Have a Blessed weekend,

  2. Ooooooo thank ya hon for adding my little gloves!! What a sweet treasury!!
    Girl you are soooo far ahead of me..have gotten a little shopping done and a few things created..but wayyyyyyy behind.
    Your girls must love ya to lay all winter..I have my bunny in his winter digs with his heat lamp!!
    Hugs to you hon!!

  3. So much for co-operation, on a project... Perhaps you will have to keep calling and reminding them, about taking pics and returning the camera. -pout-

    Wondering if you ever get snow, in your neck of the woods...? It gets so hot there, in Summer, that you must be quite South. So... Maybe it's very unusual, to get snow.

    Before the Winter is out, I will have enough, to "send" to you! ,-)))))

    Gentle Winter hugs...

  4. You sound so busy, Dede! I am trying to make one little present for each of the kids, and you would think I am building one of the great pyramids! LOL! Good luck with the photos! Keep warm - xox! Pam

  5. Getting family pictures organized is tough! Sounds like you are super-busy. Make sure you take a moment to relax too!

    Glad the chicks are still laying - my friend's gals are pretty sparse now - but we've had snow and cold weather for a while.

    Hope your Yule log creating goes well!

  6. Hello Dede!! Remember me?? MIA way to long!! Love, love, love the Treasury and how did you add it to your blog?

    Wow girl you have been super busy like always, I want a little of your energy!! I didn't get to my handmade gifts this year and am I going to hear about it from everyone, I think I'll just hide somewhere, hehehehe.

    Ooooo babies, I missed all of that, how cool. All males would not be good though.

    It is awful cold here already and I'm not liking it a bit, I can't even get warm in the house, ewwwwwww, I don't like winter, lets go back to fall : )

    Happy Wednesday my friend!!


It was nice of you to take time out of your busy day to stop by. Blessings to you and your family! (((HUGS)))
