I wish you all a Merry Christmas!

In a few short days we will all be celebrating Christmas according to the traditions we have formed over the years. Ours will be spent with some of our children on Christmas eve. Eating, talking, laughing, and eating! and eating! and eating!

Christmas eve day we will have sledding with the grandchildren
and baking with our daughters.

Christmas day will be just Dale and I and Landon home enjoying the day together.

So from my door to your door, I want to wish you all a blessed Christmas day.

I will be away from my blog starting tonight until about the first of the year.
Christmas hugs to you all!

~June~~I commented on your beautiful decorations of a few days ago, but wanted to wish you a most happy New Year and of course, Merry Christmas. Your friendship has meant so much to me. You are truly an angel that touches those around you. You have helped me through some ups and downs during this past year that have been rough for me. You ask me "how", well, just being you and being there as a friend...bless you and bless your beautiful family. Sounds like Christmas Eve & Christmas Day will be full of laugher and fun! We will be having our family over both days too and looking forward to that. Thank you, June for all your sweet comments...Christmas hugs back to you!!
I have put up some posts through Christmas Day (mainly because I lagged behind this month)which will post automatically. I will read from time to time between Christmas & New years as time permits, but will probably hear from you next year! Me too!! XXOO

I wanted to peek in today and wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Most of all, I wanted to thank you for sharing such a beautiful year with me. Of all of the wonderful blogs out there and of all of your many followers, you always managed to leave little ole me a comment and if I got really lucky, you'd send me a personal email. For that, I am very thankful and you are such a blessing to me will never know how much.
I'm sending blessings your way for a peaceful holiday and I'm looking forward to having more visits with you in 2010...

Just dropping by to say hello, the first I have been on blogger since before Christmas. I hope your holiday was wonderful, spent in the circle of your family and surrounded by love and the warmth that being together gives us. Ours was just so nice, and now we are looking forward to the new year celebration coming at us soon. Thinking of you, Debby

Halo Hill said...

Hi June, It sounds like you had a perfect Christmas! Sledding with the grandkids! What could be better? How beautiful your home and garden look! A small town in Idaho... sounds wonderful. I love our small town here too. After coming from a big city like Denver, it is such a welcoming change. (Of course I love Denver too, though).

June, Your blog is always such a delight to visit.. I love everything about it!
I'm crazy about the picture/print of the Modonna, holding the child and baby lamb.. would you mind sharing where you got it? Do happen to know it's name? I'd love to find it to add to my Madonna collection. Thanks for any help you can give me.
Hope you had a blessed Christmas & Happy 2010..
