Pictures of our Christmas Tree!!

I wanted to share the pictures Kelly took of our 3 foot live Christmas tree!! Kelly bought it for me! She has only had 3 live trees since she was born.
Yes, Kelly does have a laptop but we can't shut the lid or move it one drop or it doesn't work!! So we are just happy at this time to be able to have a working computer!! The tree now has pretty decorations under it!
This is my new, well new to me love seat that Kelly got me for Christmas. If I had known that our coffee table looked so lived in I would have picked up a little!! The Kitty Cat is Myrtle . She is Karen's cat but she lives with us! We have one more cat who is huge, Zeke . He has long brown hair and very gentle.
Have I shared that Karen has lost 115 pounds!! She is looking so nice! Kelly has lost 60 pounds! She looks great, too!!
Well, Boy Oh Boy, is this fun being able to post about something beside my health!!! I am losing weight too but that is because of the medicine I am taking for my kidneys.
I have been working on getting out Christmas cards and my special needs daughter, Nancy loves to send and get cards. All through the year when we are at Doctor's offices she asked for every one she meets and talks to for their address and tells them she will send them a Christmas card!! So,I have addressed 30 Christmas cards just for her!! She wanted to send more, but I had to cut the list down because of my health this year. It gives her so much joy to send these out that I can't bear to not do this!!

Hi Grams, your tree is pretty, and I really love that love seat. So glad you are doing better. Congrats to the girls for their weight loss. I sure wish I could do it.

God bless!

Hope said...

Hi Grams! It's really me! I've missed so much and I'm trying to catch up tonight. I'm so sorry you haven't been doing well. I feel so bad for not checking up on you. I sure hope you're doing better. I'm going to read a while and find out all about you! :)

I love your tree and your new love seat. I also like that lived-in look too! We have a lot of that going on at our house!! LOL

Come visit me when you can.

Love and Hugs,

I love the tree and I was going to ask you about the loveseat before you said it was a Christmas gift. I love the print and it would look so good in my living room. I was going to ask what brand it was and where you bought it.
I'm happy to hear from you about the weight loss of the three of you and that you feel like posting.

Your tree is beautiful!!! Love it!!! And the loveseat is also beautiful, as is Myrtle!!! You know me....I love cats!!! And you coffee table looks lovely...I don't see one thing wrong with it! Glad you are feeling better and losing weight. A low-salt diet will help rid you of some fluid. I take lasix myself until I get this one leg stripped...the veins are terrible and so painful.

Congrats to the girls for their weight losses!!! WOW!!!

Wishing you a wonderful Christmas!

I love your tree. It's perfect and very pretty. It sure makes me miss you all! I won't be there to do our "girls Christmas gift exchange" and eat yummy treats night! That's sad...

I love that you posted the scriptures on your blog! I am getting ready to print out a new set of "confession verses" for myself! I am so ready for God to open up the next door for me! He's been so faithful this year - I am just eager for more!

I love and miss you heeps! Tell Nancy "Hello" for me. (Oh - Karen and Kelly too I suppose...) HA!

Love ya,
Linda A. (Your favorite!)

Beautiful tree and I love love love your couch! It is really beautiful and your tree is so pretty...... I love real trees and maybe next year I will do that ! AND .... my schnauzers' name is ZEKE....... how fun is that...... It is short for Ezekiel from the bible..... but we just call him Zeke....... We think he is part cat as he is always licking his fur and leaves little fur balls all over the house! How strange is that !!!!!!!!!!!! hahahahhh

I am so glad you are better......God is good huh girl?

Glad to hear that someone else has a small tree!! It is very pretty and it is fun to see parts of your home.
Yes, I know it is great to post about something OTHER than your health..Know how you feel.
You guys have a Merry Christmas...

What a lovely little tree. It's absolutely gorgeous. The sofa looks great. It's always nice to receive some new furnishing.

Congratulations to the girls for their weight loss. They're both doing great. In January, I'm going to Weight Watch*ers. I have to lose some weight. When I went on diuretics, I lost 20 lbs in a very short time. Unfortunately since that time I've gained it all back plus a few pounds extra. So it's time to slim down a little.

I finally got both mine and hubby's cards done. His is a chore but they're done for another year.

Glad to hear you are feeling better, my friend. Come on over to my place and pick up a couple of awards.

Dearest Carolyn,

I just love your little tree, isn't it wonderful having a live tree:-) I bought a live one this year and so love the smell!!

How wonderful to get that sofa as a Christmas present, it's beautiful!

Wow, that's a lot of weight the girls have lost, they sure have more willpower than I do:-) They truly must feel so much better!!

My prayers are still with you, dear friend. xoxo
