Hello my dear family and friends. Can you believe it's December already? We had such an enjoyable Thanksgiving holiday, a busy time it was, and here we are in December, and still busy busy. Happy Birthday!! to my oldest daughter, Jen, (today is her birthday. While my youngest daughter, Amy, was here from NY over Thanksgiving she ran a 50K race (32 miles) and we cheered her on to the finish line! Congratulations again, Amy!

Galen and I are getting quite a few orders for wooden toys for Christmas and I just finished two pet paintings and another one to be done. There is a cookie party at my sister's on Saturday, family coming to dinner on Sunday, and decorating for the holiday which might have to wait a bit longer.

I haven't had much time to spend on the computer but I am anxious to get around and visit each of you and see what you've been up to, and I can't wait to see all those wonderful Christmas decorations! Hope you are all doing well!

Oh, and by the way, my amaryllis is in full bloom! It's beautiful, and I am enjoying it! Will it make it to Christmas? not sure...
