For the letter X this week I'm featuring EXCLAIM. I know it's a stretch. But when you pronounce it do you hear the letter E?

My vintage Santa is perching on the globe--I think he's coming our way!!!!!!

But I heard him EXCLAIM, ere he drove out of sight. MERRY CHRISTMAS to all and to all a good night!!

Blue Window

My favorite watering hole is Sonic and I snapped a picture last week of their Christmas windows. This one is blue and fitting for today's post.

I am so pleased that they painted a picture of the manger with the baby Jesus along with their snowman scenes.

Driving through our neighborhood I saw this house decorated so brightly!!  There is a strand of blue-you have to look closely.

I have all my shopping complete but for one person. I hope to get this done tomorrow, I won't attempt going this afternoon--everyone is out on the weekends.

This morning was our Choir Concert at church--just beautiful. It's such a joy for me.

Winter White

We have had the first snow of the season here in Kansas City.  Our area received 3 inches and they are predicting a WHITE CHRISTMAS. That doesn't happen too often.

We have white inside and out.  Our tree is a winter wonderland with white woodland creatures!!

I'm working a little behind in the past month, my Mom has undergone a tremendous surgery for her age of 88 and is currently in rehab. I go to see her  every day so my blogging has become at the bottom of my list.

My niece and her family are coming for Christmas next week from Texas and they are so excited to see snow, will be such fun to see them playing in the fluffy WHITE stuff. Hoping we get more to go sledding.

I love to make ornaments and my granddaughters have taken after me.  I purchased some clear ornaments and off she went to find my paints.

After painting blue she painted two of her fingers with white and imprinted the snowmen.  I think they are adorable.

These are the kind of ornaments that mean so much from year to year.

Today for ABC Wednesday I am featuring the word vunerable for the letter v.  For the last few weeks we have been very busy with my Mom who fell and shattered her elbow, cracked her wrist and has three cracks in her pelvis.

My sweet mama is 88.

The definition of vulnerable is  a person in need of special care, support or protection because of age or disability.

Mom has been in three hospitals in the last week a half trying to find a specialist to insert an artificial elbow.  We have the surgeon and we are waiting in the hospital in Kansas City for all to be "A GO'.

We are hoping all is on the mend for the Christmas Holidays.

Blue glitter

Everyone knows I love anything with sparkles!! Our Christmas cards are addressed and ready to be mailed.

Our card this year centers on the true meaning of Christmas and has several shades of blue.

The blue glitter frames the scene of the wise men and lambs.

I have been a little lax in posting lately, my elderly Mom is have major medical problems. Yesterday she fell and cracked her pelvis and shattered her left arm. I will be traveling out of town to the hospital this week to see what plan the doctors can do for her. Keep Nellie in your thoughts and prayers.

Wishing everyone a good week. Thank you Sally for your hard work.
