 Lots of plannning going on here. We are taking a trip to Florida in January!!! YAY! We finally will be able to spend time with my son Jeremy, daughter in law Sabrina and our two little grandsons! My parents are coming with us and Kelly is trying to get a couple days off work and fly down for a long weekend while we are there. We have rented a vacation house near Clearwater which will work out so much better (and cheaper) then a hotel.  We are also going to  Orlando to take the kids to Disney World~Magic Kingdom. We are just doing one day at Disney and boy am I having trouble finding inexpensive tickets. Oh well, it will still be so fun to take them there!

Thought I'd share these funny pics of Kelly & Patch on Christmas morning. She was trying to get him to pose in front of the Christmas tree. ha ha!
She calls him over there and he lays down..

She forces him to sit up and he is stiff as a board and won't look at me!!
We both got a good laugh out of it!

Took this pic the other day of the railing going upstairs.
I wish the lights in the garland would have showed up.

Dan has tonight off, so we are going out for the day with my parents and brother Tim and his wife Jen to check out some antiques stores.  I think I've mentioned it before, but Tim and Jen have a large, historical home that they are making into a Bed and Breakfast. They are always on the look out for things to put in their house.

Happy Friday!


  1. Hi Pam, Patch is too cute, and your daughter is so cute. Have a fun day, I'd love to go antique shopping but I don't even know where any is here !!!

  2. The picture of Kelly and Patch makes me laugh. My dogs do the same thing. It takes a lot of time to get a good picture with them.
    Have fun shopping!! Happy New Year!! ((BIG HUGS))!!

  3. Happy New Year Pam :)
    I love the pictures of Kelly and Patch so cute!
    Your trip sounds lovely. That will be so nice to spend time with your son and grandkids. Hope you have a happy healthy safe New Year.
    Hugs, Dru

  4. Patch is hilarious!

    how fantastic that you can go on hols with your family like that. Precious time indeed.

    Happy New Year, Pam. Here's to 2012 being a great one for us all xx

  5. just saw your comment. I think it's perfectly fine to keep lights on the jade plant. Keep them wherever you like them. One you start, you'll keep finding place to add them, and you know, you can get lots of indoor lights that clearly aren't for Christmas!

    lots of love to you xx

    p.s have posted on RDD now!

  6. Sounds like a great vakay you are planning in Florida! Clearwater is so pretty and if I am not mistaken, you will have to ask the locals... there is a place where the locals have different shells laid out on the dock that they pull up in the fishing nets and you can buy beautiful conch shells. You might ask around.

    Have lots of fun! Tickets to Disney are outrageous!
