Christmas can be the Most Wonderful Time of the Year, but it can also be the Most Stressful Time of the Year. All that shopping, planning, decorating, baking and traveling can turn a lovely holiday season into an anxiety-filled nightmare.
I'm as guilty as the next perfectionist. I want everything to look, smell, and feel just as it did when I was growing up. And when it doesn't, it means I am a failure. I have failed to "do" Christmas well.
I can't tell you how many times I…

I should be finishing Christmas cards...the Channel 2 Newsman warned me if I don't get them out this week they won't arrive before Christmas! But what do they know?
I need a moment to relax, this month has been crazy visiting people and eating mass amounts of food. It's hard work shoving your face with every delightful goody put before you while carrying on intriguing conversations. Well ok, so not all of them are super intriguing, for which I have only myself to blame.

The diner was well lit and cheery. The orange tiles reminded me of my own childhood days and delighted the babies as they scampered about. The outside wall was lined with windows at baby height, so that as we struggled to get from the parking lot inside, the babies falsely thought we'd made it before we reached the door.
"Uh, oh!" they said, tapping on the windows. "Locked, locked. Key! Ope! Ope door!"
We hurried along to get out of the wind. Once inside, we had to wait for…

God has our hearts, but the enemy whispers lies in our minds. A battle can ensue there if we aren't diligent & active in our Christian walk. It goes…Continue

There are those in life that we tend to admire from afar. For us, it’s the women who possess an inner beauty and strength that give them the courage to fight for a cause. It is the mothers, specifically, who find courage from within to protect their children while reaching out in the hopes of protecting your children as well.
Celebrity mom, Jenny McCarthy, is one such woman who Terry and I felt a deep…Continue

"Mom! Um, my brother just said a bad word. He was trying to tell me a joke, then he said the 'F' word," is what my daughter came hauling into the living room to tell us yesterday. Hubby immediately called my son into the room, and his interrogation began. My son, of course, said that his sister was lying, and that she just wanted him to get into trouble. Thus the problem any parent eventually faces- catching the real liar.
My husband's method is simple.…

I was looking at my tree the other night and my eyes landed on the eight stockings I have rigged up to a string hanging from an old curtain rod I have been remiss in removing. With no fireplace in this house- yet - I have no mantle and no place to put my beautiful stocking holders. So, I made do and, though pathetic, they are hanging.
There was a time when I had no stockings, no tree, no Christmas spirit. A time when I thought Christmas had lost its meaning and joy. When I…Continue

All I have to say is click on my blog link and check out the pic of my grandparents on top of their roof looking at the snow. This picture is from many years ago in Canada. It made me shut my mouth and quit complaining about our little 3-4 m inches today.

For the past couple of years I have been looking for a personalized name plaque for my daughter's bedroom. However, nothing quite fit with her room decor. I wanted something cute, original and big enough to fill a large empty wall in her bedroom. I decided that the only way I could get what I wanted was to make one of my own.…Continue
