Beginning to look like Christmas.....

Hello & Happy Monday Everyone!
I'm back! My son left yesterday - (inserting Sad face)
 We had a wonderful family 
weekend together and now I'm back to my normal
routine (Or at least I hope so) - :)
I tried to leave comments yesterday
for ALL of you... I couldn't leave a comment on each
post - but I did look through your amazing projects! :)
I probably won't leave a comment on FB for ya - as that's
a lot of backpeddling to do - So I will start fresh now! :)

Thought I would share a family photo we took on Friday -

My Marine is in the center - Oldest on one end, 
youngest on the other end - I'm so proud of my Handsome boys!
We did Thanksgiving on Thursday & Christmas on Friday
and I gotta say I'm pooped! :) But well worth all my efforts!

Now I should skate through the holiday season without worry
since I've gotten all my Christmas Cards done and mailed out!
Almost all gift are wrapped and under the tree - 
I don't think I've EVER been this organized for Christmas before!

Maybe he should visit every Thanksgiving to keep me in line! HAHA
Oh, How I wish that could happen! :)

Anyway - I thought I would share a Holiday card with you today
if your up to it! :)

I knew which one was the marine even before I read your post. Marines are take-charge kinds of people! I'm so glad you got to spend the time together.
That's an adorable image! I imagine that little mouse is looking all over for a scrap of cheese.
