Did you miss me???

Hello! Hello! Hello!



Sorry it has taken some time to get back into chatting with you but...



Thanksgiving was glorious! And, yes, I had help! Do you really think I would invite 12 people for a huge dinner without having help? I may be a little demented at times but I am NOT crazy! My DH and kids are wonderful helpers and we really did have so much fun cooking and preparing together! Everything was delicious except for the green bean casserole which ended up on the floor!



We bought my new frig! It is one of those French Door models which I have been drooling over since they came out! It will be delivered tomorrow....I can't wait! So, for the first time in my life, I actually went shopping on Black Friday...I usually avoid the stores because I don't like crowds but this was a Sears Appliance Store and by the time we got there, there were hardly any people there.



Then, we headed north to the cabin. We have this cabin with our best friends and it is a "little slice of Heaven". Didn't do much, just some antiquing and outlet shopping, but mostly just relaxing! The town it is in is located in the foothills of the Berkshires and it is gorgeous up there. We usually try to get up there at least every 2 weeks but it has been about 7 months with all that has been going on! Here are some pics! It is 5 rooms, sleeps 13-14, 2 baths, whirlpool tub, washer/dryer, dishwasher...oh, it is tough roughing it in the mountains, let me tell ya! Our hubbies were originally going to build a little hunting cabin...then the ladies got involved and said, if you want us to come up...there had better be some upgrades! We have been going up there for about 15 years now.

and another...a view from the front deck...

We got home late Sunday night, exhausted and to a messy house, and a ton of emails! When I started downloading some of the shares my computer started acting a little strange! I had no space left! So yesterday was spent burning off files and trying to open up some space. I ran into the kid next door who is a computer geek and he came in and is going to get me another hard drive so hopefully that will take care of the problem. Give me a program and I can figure it out but DO NOT ask me how or why a computer works!

I have been working on a little project for you all...it is still in the process but it is something that I can share as it is done. It is a Christmas Album. don't know how many pages it will be or just what will be in it but it will all be based on 3-4 patterns so it will all coordinate so you can mix, match, add, subtract...whatever your little hearts desire! But here is the catch! Since it is Christmas and it is traditionally a time for presents and surprises, you will not get to see the entire download each day. You may see the background or you may see the elements or the word art or maybe nothing at all! After you download, when you click on "extract the file" I want you to picture yourself unwrapping a present! Isn't that fun? A prezzie from me to you!

Here is the first:

OH, I hope it fits! I hope you like it! Don't have the receipt can't return it! LOL!

Sorry! This download has been removed!

Don't know if I will get a new page up for you everyday but by Christmas you should have a bunch of them. Most of the pages can be mirrored so you can do 2 page layouts. It is for an 8x8 album. Please enjoy and fa-la-la-la-la!

Huggers!!!

I really missed you but am real glad you had a good holiday! We had a good holiday too. Had all the grandkids-it was so pretty and warm that they played outside-they were tired campers that night. No trouble getting them to go to bed! My daughter and family came Wednesday night and stayed till Sunday night. I love to see the headlights coming and the taillights going. Anyway, thank you so much for the lovely gift. You will never know how much I appreciate it-you are so kind!!!! P.S. We're going to have a fire this week-end so if you get cold-come on down.

Hi Jan,
Welcome back. I had to unwrap my christmas present before I commented you, so I could tell you how pretty it is and to thank you so much for it. I just love your cabin. I had an easy thanksgiving day, I went to my sons and I ate and played with the grandkids. Oh and took lots of pictures. Well, glad your back and can't wait for my next present. Thanks

I'm so glad you're getting your refrigerator, I'm drooling just thinking about all the space you'll have in it.

TYS your awesome Christmas freebie!

Becky said...

Thank you so much. I have to tell you that due to your post I had to do some searching and find out exactly where the Bershires are. Loved the look of that cabin. My DH and I are retiring soon (well, I am already) and going to travel. We keep a list of places to visit and THIS is definitely going on it. Thanks you for your photos!
