Oh, tis the season!

‘Tis the season! What a fun time it is. It seems as though I have already started the season off with real celebration!

I have had a plethora of fun with my girl friends! I had a very special evening with my long time friend Leanne. We went to dinner and then went to a ceramic shop and made a little something while we got all caught up and just hung out together. We painted, relaxed and just had fun! Thanks Leanne for such a memorable evening, loved every minute of it!

this is the plate I made while there…..isn’t it cute?

Also had my girl’s over that we have had coffee on a regular basis for years and on special occasions get together for dinner or something fun too. So this year we were here at the house. (I don’t have a picture darnit) They stayed until way late while eating and gabbing. I made two different kinds of homemade pizza. It was so much fun!

We got our tree up. We went to a tree farm to find ‘the perfect tree!’ Ok, so remember I have BOYS and that means the bigger the better, a challenge, YES we want a challenge. So, we found ‘the tree’ and as I looked around it was the biggest tree out there. I asked Brayden isn’t this going to be alot of work to try and saw down? They all chimed in, “OH NO, this is perfect!” So, with much muscle and using my whole body to push that tree as Brayden sawed his little heart out, we got it down, dragged it to the long bed big diesel truck that we have, in which the tree hung over the edge of the tail gate but we got it in there and home. The tree had to be cut almost in half to fit in the house but it’s up and beautiful. We also, on Jim’s behalf decorated his elk. I have to put a picture up of it for husband. Do you see? It has reigns, a beard? Nice, don’t you think?

Do you love my sign?
Jim is still in Palm Springs, we miss him, but again so grateful he is working.

I had my bible study girl’s over for dinner. We had a great time! We ate and ate, did a little gift exchange, we had a good time. I really love these girls.

Off today to watch Corvan wrestle in his varsity spot on our team.Jordan too will be wrestling! Last week he did win his matches, we went again today and had a bit of an off day. Tough matches and loses for both of his matches. Today, one of the few he has lost this season and he developed quite the little attitude/crying fit. So, today we chalk the day up to character building and attitude adjustment. Guess when you are little it’s important to learn it all, right?

 Oh, guess what? I am a crocheter now. I sit at these matches for hours and for years tried to read, there is no reading to be done with the noise level in that gym so I took up crocheting, it is so much fun, I LOVE IT. I’m not real good at it, my mother inlaw who taught me corrects me often but I need the correcting that is for sure~ha! (Lashae and Chars, stop laughing at me!)

Jordon got the pin goin’ on today!

Corv suffering from a loss and coach is consoling him.

Happiness at the tournament

See? I am a crocheter! People ask me if I am making a Christmas gift I say, “uh, no, I think I will keep this all to myself”….(maybe when I get a little better and it looks better, Chars and La, again, zip it)
And back to the ‘ole treadmill. Not for any other reason than I was ready to change it up a little. The weather is super cold but clear the past few days and I LOVE IT!

Far Above Rubies - Marlece, looks like you’re having such a blessed season. Love the tree; so big and pretty. I’ve been thinking of putting my boys in wrestling. Do your boys love it?

I took up sewing this year and love it. I think crochet is a great idea. I hear it’s easier than knitting.

Big hugs, sister.

Have a Merry Christmas!

Shauna - Table runner is lookin’ good. Remember – crochet hooks can be useful for those mockers [that will be asking in a few years how to crochet when they have bleacher butt or need to sit by the sand box for hours :)].

Casey Martinez - I love your tree cutting story and that sucker is huge but, SO my kinda tree! I told Joey it’s a good thing our roof is only 9 feet tall or else I’d be wanting a 13 footer every year! hahaha. So glad you are enjoying the business of this season and having fun with wrestling matches, knitting and meet ups with bible study gals! I wish you lived nearby and I would totally bug you:). Thanks for your super sweet comment on my post by the way. You are such a blessing Marlece! xo
