Simple Saturday

Glass Jars are simple and I Love them. One day I hope to replace all my plastic with Glass. Today I went into the Container Store! Big mistake! That place makes you want to reorganize your entire House! I just hung out with the glass jars. One day all my spices will be in matching glass jars and my pantry will be full of glass jars of all sizes with flour and sugar and chocolate chips, everything! For now, I'm just looking. Oh and I did find some Christmas wrapping paper for 50% off! 

I have a friend who also has a "thing" for jars and I found some on clearance for her! 
I love that you can text people pictures of things and they can decide right then if they want you to pick up a few jars for them! It's the simple things!

Wednesday's Wisdom

Wow! Today has me thinking about Christmas Memories. Every time you open up your boxes of ornaments, the Memories Flood Back! Everything that happens each year plays through your mind.  When I was just a week away from Having my oldest son, I decorated an entire tree by myself! They call that nesting! I hate those wire ornament hangars so I decided to tie on the clear and Red Ornaments with Lace. I was really into lace back then - can you tell!? I still have some of those ornaments 22 years later. Happy Happy Memory!
This year is ending and Christmas will never be the same but just as in years passed, when Memories were made, I am certain our new Memories will be just as Special. #mynewlife

The tree in 1991-La Crosse, WI

And here is the Sweet Little Christmas Gift from that Special Year! 

Here is one of the Surviving Ornaments from 1991. I just love putting them up year after year! 

That same year, my Uncle John started a Lenox Ornament Collection for us. He sent us Beautiful Ornaments For many years. It's a Joy to open these up each Christmas. It's about the Love of Family.


And of course the Pure Joy of Reliving each Child's Handmade Ornaments. Lucas made this one!

Max chose this ornament for himself this year...

And this one for his Brother! We started a New Tradition this year!! 

And Here is A New Memory - the Tree - Christmas 2013 - Alabaster, AL
