Christmas Ramblings

My dd Pillar won this apron on a give~a~way that I posted about earlier! Doesn't she look cute?? We've never won anything like this before. We were all very excited. It came in the mail just in time to bake lots and lots of yummy cookies, candies and caramels! What fun!!! We had a fun pre-Christmas present exchange with our good friends, the Olson's. You would not believe how silly these girls get when they are together! Rosebud likes to remind me that SHE is the reason we are all friends. You see....Rosebud and "Molly" Olson (yellow shirt) met in Sunday School at church when they were about 2. They became bff's and we have been good family friends ever since. Their birthdays also happen to be about 10 days apart so we've celebrated many a birthday together! What fun!!
Remember our "adopted Grandparents?" Well, Mr. Rick has fought and won a recent battle with Cancer! You can imagine how thrilled the girls were when we entered their home, got BIG hugs.....and realized that he had HAIR!! These are the thank you cards that the girls made for them. I just love all the artwork. Notice the card in the middle? It's Rosebud's version of Proverbs 16:31 which says A gray head is a crown of Glory. She said when she saw his new gray hair.....that was the verse that "popped" into her head. How sweet is that?!?!?!?!
I hope you've had a very Merry Christmas!! I know we have!!
