(From Butterbean) This might be the SWEETEST stories I've read lately.
(From Butterbean) The Archway Bakery in Ashland, OH closed this fall and 300 workers lost their jobs. Lance (cracker co) bought Archway. They immediately gave 60 people their jobs back, seniority & benefits...and hope to give the rest theirs as well. In addition, the company gave all 300 employees $1500 gift cards! I wrote them an email and said that although we haven't bought Lance before, we will now b/c of their actions. What a cool way to share the Christmas spirit!!!
Hubby saw a story about this church and we found this site about it. BEAUTIFUL!
My grandsons introduced this YouTube video today and we've laughed over and over!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XdOiF_qdQLI
From my friend Jenn at Delightfully Cliche. She introduced me to this group ~ Straight No Chaser. It's an a cappella group and they are GREAT. Check them out at http://www.sncmusic.com/. I downloaded their new Christmas CD, Holiday Spirits, and have listened to it quite a bit.
Last but not least from my sister ~

Now I'll being wrapping packages and get some more Christmas spirit going! Our poor doggie got sick last night (all over the house actually, and I won't share the details since I love ya'll). Apparently dogs decide they need to "hide" the results of their sickness and she'd rubbed her nose on the carpet (and in other things) so much that the top of her nose was red raw. Suffice it to say, hubby would rather have taken the dog to the vet than stay and clean up. She is now in the doggie hospital with an IV and will have to stay until at least Monday. Yippee, a vet bill ~ Merry Christmas to us!!!!!!
Happy Ho-Ho to Ya'll

UPDATE ~ Stockings are completed now and hanging from the mantle. Check them out here!
The mantle looks rather sparse and boring, any suggestions in the pic, but it's beside the tree and there is a book case full of stuff to the left of it. The other pic is my kitchen window!!
Stocking layouts! They will have a little more top detail, etc.

You may not remember me. I am your blog. Maybe you'd like to visit me again before Christmas. Of course, if your goal is to blog twice a month, you have 20 days left. I know you're busy, but you're wasting my super cute background. Step away from the Christmas cookies and log on.
Okay... so the things I love about Christmas:
