To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

HOLIDAY PARTIES, TAMALES AND WRAPPING IT UP!
The Divine Miss M and family
attended a holiday party last weekend.
It was a very cold and rainy evening,
but inside, the holiday festivities were alive and well
with a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus!
She always outdoes herself with festive wrapping paper!
Who wouldn't want to receive these gifts?
even leftovers are looking and smelling good
to Miss Piper!
Jenn's sweet parents are
teaching Greg the art of
I sure hope they bring me some....
this is their holiday tradition....
They also spent an afternoon
shopping the Antique stores!
That can be such a fun way to
shop for special treasures!
Do you have your new 2017 calender yet?
I adore Susan Branch calenders...
