Beginning to Look Like Christmas

Happy Sunday to everyone!  Hope everyone is doing great!  We've been running way behind this year, but it's starting to finally look like Christmas here at our home.  We just mailed our Christmas cards Friday night, better late than never. :)
We've had a few cool days here in Orlando so, I've been  wearing sweaters and my boots!  Sandra, aka MadSnapper, knows how happy this makes me. LOL  

We will be having Christmas breakfast at home and  dinner at my parents home.  Today I will be baking a bunch of cookies!  My son's nickname is Cookie Monster and has been since he was about two.  He loves warm chocolate chip cookies and many others as well.  A few of my favorite are chocolate chip cookies, ginger bread cookies, blackberry cobbler and sweet potato pie...yummy!  What are some favorites in your home??

Rocket is worried because the tree is far from decorated and he doesn't smell any good gifts. :)
P.S.  I don't have make-up on or do any photo shop this is me, I keep it simple. :) LOL

Roxanne never worries because she knows mommy always comes through. :)

Afternoon at the Park with My Son Part 4

While my son and I were visiting the park his best friend called.  What happened next??  You guessed it, he came to join us. :)  They took off and quickly left me behind. LOL

Hope December is everything you want it to be.  I haven't caught up yet, but it's okay it will all work out. :)

There they go, straight to the water to look for alligators. LOL

Doesn't it look like summer?

Peek-a-boo, I've missed you!  
Here I go again, running behind in one of my favorite places...blog land!  
I hope everyone is enjoying their December!  I would enjoy it more if it would cool off and stay that way.  I have boots and sweaters that I would love to wear!  Our fireplace is just sitting there.  I think we've had two fires this season.  If you looked in my coat closet you would think I live in North Dakota. LOL  I'm ready for some winter weather!
This little girl below was begging to be on my blog.  Well, not really, she was begging for peanuts.  She got both! :)
Happy Friday my friends!

Afternoon at the Park with My Son Part 3

Hi friends!  I have been really busy with life. :)  I will be catching up with everyone's blog soon!  
We will be soon getting our Christmas decorations up.  We have neighbors that already have pretty lights on their houses.  I do love the lights and beautiful Christmas music.
I'm posting a few more pics from our visit to the park.  My son and I both enjoy the outdoors and animals, but I'm not into camping....go figure. :)

We got a great surprise when we looked up and her came three Sandhill Cranes!
I just caught them landing!

I wish I could have gotten better pics of these beautiful birds.  The camera I was using is 5 MP and 12 optical.
It was a cloudy day so, I was at the mercy of nature.  :)

I'm thankful for each one of you just as I am for
the butterfly and flowers outside my window.

Love & Blessings to you all,

Monday Before Thanksgiving

It's hard to believe that Thanksgiving is in three days!  I don't have anything for my dinner yet!  Hubby is working this week, son  is out of school all week and I have a lot to do. :) I think even the squirrels are ahead of me. LOL

I'm actually considering going out and about on Black Friday.  If you're in good company it can be so much fun! Of course I'll have my cell phone camera in hand, you never know what you may see on Black Fridays.  lol

I know our friends in Canada have already had their Thanksgiving, what about everyone else?  Are you cooking, will it be a big dinner or a quiet day?
How about Black Friday?  Will you be out in the madness?

Happy Monday!
This is "Front yard Mama Squirrel", she had part of her tail gone and a big cut
on her side,about 2 inches!  I started feeding her roasted, non-salted peanuts everyday with
liquid amoxicillan on them.  She ate them up!  Her cut healed and she has had babies since then.
She is very lucky to be up in this tree posing for me. :)
I also posted her way back when she was a youngster and she was sitting on my brick wall.
Some of you may remember her.  :)

Afternoon at the Park with My Son Part 2

My son and I really did enjoy our time at the park!  It's fun to just let your hair down and be silly and goofy.  I really believe laughter is the best medicine. :)

Where did the week go??  I can't believe it's already Friday!  I'm about to have a BIG cup of coffee and catch up in blog land. :)  Happy Friday friends!

on top of the world...

my son and I shared the camera. :)

Afternoon at the Park with My Son Part 1

Last week my Son and I spent the afternoon together.  We went to Wal-mart, then Subway for a late lunch and the gas station to fill up his tank...lol  Then on to the park for a walk and photo shoot. 
The sun was starting to set and there wasn't great light, but we still enjoyed ourselves. :)
It's Monday now and I hope everyone has a great week!

This is the path that we eventually follow.

Surprise, surprise my son felt the need to take yet another picture of  his car. LOL

This is Barber Park in Orlando

Happy Friday Friends

Hope everyone is having a good week.  I've been dragging since Tuesday night.  

I went outside this morning and enjoyed my large cup of coffee, visits from two butterflies, the gorgeous blue sky and the many flowers blooming.  Some birds and squirrels visited and even a hawk landed in my oak tree and left my little critters alone.   

I took a few moments to pray and thank him for all this beauty, it was just what I needed to lift my spirits.  Afterwards I went to get my camera because I wanted to share all this beauty with you. :)

Hope you are having a beautiful day...

Goodbye October and Hello November

Our Halloween evening was a lot of fun!  We had a lot of visitors seeking candy.  
If my son had been home for more than five minutes he would have known that his jack o' lantern was a HUGE success!  We received compliments all evening and everyone was taking pics of his jack o' lantern, not ours.  lol  
The pics of my son as a nerd are left overs.  He stopped home betweeen parties and he had already lost his pocket protector and pens!  I told him that he should have gone as Clark Kent and wear a Superman shirt under his button up.  I'm a fan of Superman and always watched Smallville with my son.  Any fans of Smallville out there?

Hope everyone enjoyed their evening and stayed safe!

Welcome November!

Where is your pocket protector and pens?!?!? LOL

Kyle's jack o" lantern.  He didn't use a kit, this was out of his head. :)

Our front walkway.
This is my jack o" lantern, friendly for the youngsters. :)

Kyle's not a ham! LOL

Ara, on the left, just rescued a baby squirrel two days ago and called us.
Kyle and I picked him up and dropped him at a ladies home that does
wildlife rescue, he's doing very well!

I see Clark Kent here,  maybe next year. :)

Happy Halloween

I can't believe it's Halloween already, which means it's the last day of October!  Where is the time going??  Does anyone else feel this way?
Kyle and I found pumpkins for $.50 each, so we bought 5!
We have 4 out of 5 carved and Kyle will carve the 5th one today.  
Hope everyone has a Happy Halloween!  What is everyone doing today?  Are you dressing up?  Passing out candy?  Eating candy?? LOL

Here's what we've got ready for tonight so far...

Love my son's imagination!
He's king of carving pumpkins in our home. :)

Taking a photo of his work.  :)

I was kinda hoping for an all brown bag,
so that we could afford the high cost of living. :)

A few of my cupcakes

Which bowl of candy do you think is for trick or treaters 
and which one is for me???
