Presents

Everyone was having fun opening gifts!

Even Lucy was enjoying playing with her NEW TOY! It is a Lady Bug.

Scott got a Grumpy Party Pooper! It is a sheep that when you lift the tail drops little chocolate balls out. Very funny! He also got a Wiener Slinky dog!

Thanks Jeff and Bev for the great gifts! The Scarves are very warm, the bubble bath very cool, and the Star Trek Game looks fun too!

Dessert


Punkin Pie with Whip Cream & Martinelli Apple Cider.

Christmas Dinner


Honey Ham, Potatoes, Gravy, Orange-Cranberry Sauce, Green Beans, Rolls.
It was very nice.

Mom's Christmas Cottage


Her fire is lit and the stockings are hung. The tree is decked with glittering ornaments of all types.

Christmas Teapot!


We no longer have shelves that run along the top of the kitchen cabinets. The Carnation house was great for my white teapot collection. When we moved I scaled down the collection and sent alot to the goodwill.
This teapot, I could NOT resist it's cuteness. So it is on display in the kitchen window!

Homemade Retro Card!

This card makes me laugh really hard! This is a card for all of our family

The Final Product...


Handmade Gifts



Each year I try to make a Christmas Ornament as a gift for the wonderful people in Scott's Family. They are now my family, and even though I will not see them this year, I am thinking about them.
This year I found a cute frame for scrapbooking by MM Glitter Bling (Making memories @ Michael's $1.99ea.) that I thought would make a great photo border for an ornament. I then purchased 6 glitter snowflakes (Ben Franklin $6.99 6/box).
I was going for a vintage look so the photos were printed on HP Photo matte paper.
They are a little bigger, but I like them very much.

Mom!

Weedle on the Needle - Space Needle Visit

The Seattle Space Needle has changed over the years. At the observation deck level there are various fun facts all over the walls. Comparisons of the height of other land marks to the Needle.

Well folks, Missouri makes 'em taller! The Missouri Arch stands 630 feet, wheras the Seattle Space Needle stands at 605 feet.

What a bright sunny, though chily day to see all of the surrounding cityscape!

Science Fiction Museum

Seattle holds the actual full costume worn by Roddy McDowel in the Planet of the Apes films. I thought the exhibitions was pretty cool! The chair that was used by Capt. James Tiberius Kirk from the TV Series is also housed there.

We had a great time wandering around.

Wintery Weekend with the Wiener's

Scott's mom Karin, his sister Charlene, and her husband Ro were up here for a few days. We did a little shopping and sightseeing and eating out.
