Gifts on the go

I made these little canvas bags for the girly girls. Actually the canvas bags I already had. I just painted faces to resemble (I am so not an artist) the girls. Then I put some candy canes, coloring books and crayons inside. I thought it would be a good bag to tote all their things back and forth. Then Mama said they needed new bags for dancing SO there you go. It is hard to find something for kids that you know have everything and also to not spend alot of money on. I also made bows and glued them on the hair I painted.



The third graders at our elementary school singing at the Christmas program. Although, it doesn't look like anyone is singing but they were. The cute one in the middle with the earring belongs to me. She's my oldest grandchild.


I am officially on a two week vacation. Non-paid but still a vacation. I ran errands today. Oh my, people are grumpy out there. I saw some finger gesturing going on and some horns a honking. Slow down people and cheer up. I had a rough time telling the girls from the boys......geez what is up with that.

Off to do Christmas with our Mamas tomorrow. We will be doing things a bit differently. Hubby with his mom and me with mine. Mine is sick. I need to help her do a couple of things.....like get her car from the repairman, etc.


The computer I am on is as slow as a sloth. It won't let me read some of your blogs. It also won't let me leave comments on some. I am asking (begging) for a new computer in the New Year.

Okay that's about it for now. Ho Ho Ho.

You are such a nice grandma. Your girly bags are sure to bring on the big smiles.
The school choir reminds me my kids and grandkids at the Christmas school Pageant. I just looked on anxiously until they did their little parts and breathed a sigh of relief.

I'm glad that you have a few weeks vacations. I sure could use even one week myself. I haven't had a day off in a very long time.

I'm sorry that your mom is sick. I hope that she get feeling better soon. Shopping with people who are impatient and arrogant is so awful. They need to lighten up.
Wishing you a safe and warm weekend. JB
