Whew...what a time!!!

Hello all,
So sorry for the long blogging post delay. I am back home in NC at my sister's place. My family went home to NC for Christmas the Saturday before Christmas and we had plans for staying the whole week and leaving the next Sunday. Well other plans decided to happen. We did get to stay all week! Dad went home on Sunday to get back to work. Me though? Well out of all times early this past Saturday morning I got a really bad cough and it would not stop. I thought it was allergies and went to walmart and got some meds. Well as the day went on I kept getting worse and more sick. I decided their was no way I could make the long ride home to TN the next day. So me and Mom stayed here. I decided to go to the doctor on Sunday. My fever spiked as high as 103!! They did chest x-rays and a flu test and yeap I tested postive for the flu :( So I am being treated for the flu plus meds for pneumonia so if I did have that it would treat it. What a long weekend it has been. My mom now has a fever and feeling sick. Please be in prayer for us? Thank you so much!!

Thrifty Finds...

I just found this in my draft folder from a long time back..lol..I don't know why I never posted the post!!
The first Saturday of the month in my area means 50% off day at Goodwill :) I am a thrift and yard sale shopper lover. I love the deals I get at them!! I have 2 in my area I can go to :)

 A bag of Vintage looking Christmas ornaments $1.50!! Basket of Christmas Ornaments $ 2.00!!
2 small ornaments .50 cents each!! I think I need to stop myself because I only buy them at thrift, yard sales or clearance. I hope my tree holds my ornament collection this year..lol. 
 I love cards and stationery. Got all these cute little cards for .50 cents for the whole bundle!!!
 I love time life old pictures. I found this box of Christmas cards and got them for $1.00. They were marked on them at Target for 6.99!!
This was cute. It's a tissue holder,but the lid is on top so you could use it a box storage type decor. Price tag on it from Bed,Bath and Beyond for 19.99. I got it for $1.50!!!!!!

Love making other people's junk my treasures!!!  Love the prices as well!!

Silent Night...

One of my favorite Christmas songs. So peaceful to listen too or read the words!! Such a touching and moving song. Can you just imagine what that time would have been like? A new babe in a manager. I believe it was a silent and holy night. I believe everything was peaceful and calm!!

Silent night, holy night!
All is calm, all is bright.
Round yon Virgin, Mother and Child.
Holy infant so tender and mild,
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace

Silent night, holy night!
Shepherds quake at the sight.
Glories stream from heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia,
Christ the Savior is born!
Christ the Savior is born

Silent night, holy night!
Son of God love's pure light.
Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth

Duck Dynasty&Phil Thoughts...

Big story breaking tonight with Duck Dynasty. Just Google it and you will find out why. I have watched the show a couple times and had a few good laughs. What I admire most is the Christian beliefs they hold and ending each show with a prayer. So tonight they have took Phil off the show due to his beliefs he spoke in a magazine. One question I always have? Why is it that everybody else in the world can voice their opinions but when Christians voice theirs we all get bashed,name called,haters,bigots and other words thrown at us. Why can't we Christians never voice anything? Why can everybody else always voice and not get nothing said? I just don't understand it!! It upsets me so much. Just because I don't believe in Gay lifestyles that does not make me a bigot or I'm Judging others. I am simply stating what I believe to be God's words. If God wanted 2 of the same sex together he would have made it so they could come together as 1. No he made it to where only Man and Woman can come together. Only Man and Woman can produce children. Those things along should tell you that it is against nature and God for two of the same sex to be together. So I commend people like Phil who stand for their convictions!!

A little Hello...

I put a little Christmas background on the blog. I was feeling in the mood :) I have been blogging since 2007 and I use to really decorate it all up. I had music and everything. I enjoy blogging so much more then Facebook. A lot of bloggers have switched to just keeping up on facebook. I wish some would come back to blogging. I enjoyed so many blogs. Blogging you can find such interesting things and ideas. Facebook sometimes is just a brag book or drama book..lol :) By the way I also have it set up now on here to where I am replying to your comments under each comment you leave on here. I really enjoy hearing from you all. I promise I am going to start posting more. I hope everyone is having a blessed week!!

Favorite Christmas Movies...

I love when my favorite Christmas movies roll out for the season!! I admit though I can watch these anytime of the year. These are my favorite Christmas movies.

"The Best Christmas Pageant Ever"
 I have watched this movie since I was a child. It is so sweet and shows the true meaning of Christmas!! It's such a special Christmas movie to me. 
I found the whole movie on youtube. It's broken into parts. Click here to watch it.

"National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation"
Ok seriously who has not seen this one? It never gets old. Here is one of my favorite clips from the movie.

"A Christmas Story"
Where have you been if you have never seen this one? It's a must watch every year at least one time!! I have always watched this one. I think it ranks as one of the top in my book. Below is one of my favorite clips.

This movie makes me laugh every time. Such a great comedy during the Christmas season. I love Buddy the Elf!!

"The Homecoming"
I love "The Waltons" and this is the first movie that started the series. Most of the cast from this one star in the series. I found the movie on youtube in full version. Click here to watch.

Thanksgiving back home...

Hello all,
So sorry for not waiting lately. I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!! Right before we were suppose to go home to NC,a winter storm was blowing through. It was also going to be right in the path of the road we took through the mountains to get home. So after watching all the weather we decided we didn't want to risk going down the mountains in snowy and icy weather. So we thought we were not going. The day we are suppose to leave though all the reports were saying the roads were pretty clear and it would be ok. So we took the chance and left Wednesday around lunch and we made it home for Thanksgiving!!! We ran into some snow and slick roads around the mountains in some parts. Other than that we made it just fine. We were able to spend Thanksgiving with my sister and meet up with a bunch of family at different times. My sister lives in the same complex and Grandpa and Uncle live in. So we were all in the same area..lol :) It was so good to see everybody and home!! We made it home last night after all day on the road. It took us longer than usual because of so much holiday traffic and traffic Jams due to road constructions. We were at the last exit before our exit on the hwy and we hit another Jam and were stuck for awhile. We were like 2 minutes away and were like we were almost there..lol..finally we hit out exit and I said Amen!!! I don't like traveling in a car so long.

Clear one minute and the next light snow to slick roads.

The roads going down on some parts.

 Quick stop by Maggie Valley on the way home

Love how the water freezes off the mountains.
She loves doing this!!!
