Hello and Happy Monday everyone!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend...
I know I did! :o) I went to the In-laws...
We actually went to surprise them! And BOY
were they surprised! :o) My MIL is ill and
has been for awhile now.... I wanted them
to come for Thanksgiving because she
doesn't get out much anymore... She was happy
to be here and I was thrilled that she could come...
But after the Thanksgiving visit she got sick yet again...
And I wanted to do something nice for her and go see her
before Christmas... I planned everything with the hubby...
She had been wanting to try my Lasagna for awhile but
since she's been sick so long it just never worked out...
Soooo.... my plan involved making my Lasagna and my
homemade fudge (that she's never had either) and bring it
to them as my gift... Well besides the gift we already
had gotten them..... Any who... They were excited to
see us and they could not believe I did all of that for them....
Sooo we spent the afternoon down in CO. were they live and
enjoyed our time with them.... My MIL has to go in
on the 20th for Surgery..... So, it was the perfect time to
come and see them.... She tried my fudge and
LOVE it! and they were getting ready to cook the Lasagna
when Hubby and I had to leave to go get some shopping done
before our long drive back home... :o) I'm just glad to help
put a smile on her face when I can.... She is a wonderful
Person and I'm sooo lucky to be apart of their family!
OK... Enough with the mushy stuff! :o)
I have a simple yet elegant style card for you today!

Well.... I hope you like my card... I thought it was a
pretty holiday card and I already mailed it off to
