Merry Christmas!

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU!


Thanks to all of you who stopped by my site this year. It made it extra special for me. It's been an up and down year, with winning and being nominated for awards and losing a dear uncle, with working hard and keeping to my deadlines. With trying to share my time equally with family and friends. With always keeping my mother and father, near to my heart.


I thought I'd post some pictures to highlight my favorite things from 2007. Hope you enjoy!

The Family - My Dear Husband Don, My daughter Nikki and son Jason.

My closest friends from elementary school. I won't say how
many years we've known each other!

The Newly Engaged
Zac and Nikki












Being a part of Petticoats and Pistols has been a blast. Let me say I don't know a better group of authors headed up by Pam Crooks with Cheryl St. John, Geralyn Dawson, Stacey Kayne, Linda Broday, Mary Connealy, Patricia Potter, Karen Kay and Elizabeth Lane. I hope you get a chance to stop by in 2008! The fillies are cooking up lots of fun blogs and contests!


















I was thrilled to win the 2006 National Reader's Choice Award this year!














And lastly, working this year with Operation Gratitude to send care packages to American soldiers around the globe. It was a truly rewarding experience.










THANKS FOR SHARING YOUR TIME WITH ME
HAVE A HAPPY, HEALTHY AND PROPEROUS NEW YEAR.
SEE YOU SOON!!

Is this an actual ornament on your tree?

Yes, that's a real ornament. I think it's a Hallmark picture ornament that my hubby made for me after my mother passed away.
I love it.
