Remembering Christmas Past and my 3 Angels

My grand babies stayed with us the other night and I did something that brought back memories of long ago. They had so much energy, (might have been the sweets Mimi made), we had to do something to get them tired. So remembering Christmas Eve long ago when I was young, it was always busy for Mom and Dad. They had all the family over to our house and the kitchen was like a restaurant with all the menu items being prepared at once. I have to say Mom had control on my brother and me, but on Christmas Eve we just couldn't hold it all in. My Mom started putting on our coats and not say a word of where we were going and back in those days to go anywhere was a treat. Well my brother and I were so excited and couldn't wait to be on our adventure. She opened the door and said, "OK, start running down to Grandma's and Grandpa's, turn around and come back home", which they lived at the end of our street. I just remember this was one Christmas in Texas it was really cold and we just didn't understand this task and said, "Why"? I don't think she ever gave us an answer, so we took off and laughed all the way. Mom stood at the door and she must of called Grandma, because she was at her front door and waved at us as we turned around and ran back home. Some good energy used and I guess we calmed down a little. Well my 3 angels was bouncing off the walls so we went outside and I showed them a running path around our oak trees and back to me. Needless to say they laughed all the way, even the little one. Miss and love you Mom and Dad, now I understand.
Santa is still hanging on this year. Wishing you all a Merry Christmas!

Calamity Jane's New Adventure!

We have Winnie Trade Days that is not for from my house and it is open the second Weekend or I should say the second Monday's weekend of every month. This little building became available and I decided to jump in and give it a whirl. Oh man, have I done the correct thing, I just keep asking God to guide me. These are some pictures of before and after and hope to feel it even fuller next month.
Now for a few after shots. This is my teacup tree that I add utensils, hankies and see the old hat at the top. Great conversation piece but I hope the customers know the the items are for sale.

The pictures above are of the front porch, fabric, little dresses I sale, towels and pillowcases. Sewing and getting ready for Christmas.
