Merry Christmas from my house to yours!

I wish everyone the Merriest of Christmas.  I hope that everyone enjoy their holiday and has a safe and happy time. 

 My hubby and I will celebrate a quiet day with just the two of us.  All our children live too far away to come to our house and they all will be enjoy time with their children and extended family and friends.  We chose to live in the part of the country that none of the kids liked and so there is never much chance to see them.  They also live from one end of the country to the other so they don't see each other either except for every two or three years.  We were lucky this summer and two of the kids and three of the grandchildren were here in July.  That was a fun week of lots of activities in very hot weather.  Living, as we do, in Arizona, most people can't take the heat we have and are glad they don't live here. 

 There are times when I do miss the snow my age, I sure don't want the cold or the snow and ice to drive in.  We both grew up in northern Illinois and as adults also lived in Michigan and Indiana the first 30+ years of our lives and that was enough, we moved to sunny Arizona.  So because of living here we don't have family close but we will make the most of our Christmas day.  There are 9 casinos just across the Colorado River from us in Laughlin, Nevada so there is always entertainment.  We just might avail ourselves to some on Christmas day.

 I wish to thank everyone who bought bears and dolls from me this past year.  You have all made me very happy with sales higher than I have had in the past few years.

 Merry Christmas

Big Sale on my website

I have so many dolls right now that I have marked a lot of them down and I thought maybe some of you would like to see what is still available.  I really need to add more things to the site but that will wait until after Christmas and then I will know what I have left.  I also have two big shows to do the first part of the year.  One antique show in February and a art and craft show to do in March so I need to get busy with sewing on some of the dolls that, at this point are naked.  Poor babies are all in a container and I have just been to busy and then ill for the last couple of months.

 I never get sick but this year has not been good to me.  First a sinus infection in October which in a week turned into a lung infection and took lots of medicine to cure.  Then just as I was feeling better and thought good it is over, I got the flu which completely wiped me out for a week.  Fingers crossed, I am doing okay this week other than the arthritis in the spine and that pain will never go away.

 I hope everyone has their Christmas decorations all up and everyone is excited about the holidays.  We have a quiet time here as none of our family lives close.

 So I hope you will take a look at my website and pick up those last minute gifts.  There is still time to get it in the mail if you do so in the next few days. 
 Thank you for taking a peek

 Bear hugs and Dolly kisses to everyone.
