Even Though

Hello and come on in. It is cold this morning and going to get colder, so the coffee is on. Jackie brought me over more Kona so we are good to Even Though cold weather is coming, I am going to start my Christmas decorating. Most  of you know I love Christmas and all the stuff that goes with it. I no longer do a cookie swap, but am going to bake cookies next week. I will let the little ones help one day too. Mollie and Andrew love to come and make cookies and Even Though it is sooooo messy, I love having them come. I did this with my grands when they were growing up too. Last time we made cookies I found flour on my couch! Go  I have the makings for fudge bought already, so one evening that will be on my list. Even Though it isn't healthy, my family loves it, so I will make it. Doug usually buys black walnuts to put in a batch. This is all looming ahead in the weeks to come. I get excited just thinking about it. I love the sappy,(as my friend Dottie calls them) Hallmark movies on TV. I love to drink eggnog(non alcoholic) but sprinkled with nutmeg, eat cookies and cry with Not all of them are teary, so I laugh with Even Though it is a lot of work, that we make for ourselves, and some people think it is silly, I don't mind anything to do with Christmas. I have been listening to the music already. Silver Bells is one of my favorites, right along with I'll Be Home for Christmas. I adore the old carols. Curtis' favorite was O Holy Night, now it is one of mine too. I get a bit nostalgic at Christmas. Ok I get a lot nostalgic at Christmas. I miss my Mom and Dad so much. I miss Curtis, and I miss my grandparents. I have said before my Dad was the Christmas lover at our house growing up. He loved it. So Even Though it isn't Thanksgiving yet, I am putting up Christmas. Stay tuned for Christmas Through My Back Door. I will leave you with a few pictures of Christmas past.
Even Though I have said it before, I love having you come Through My Back Door where life is good.

  2. Good morning Betty
    Oh I can't wait to get started on my Christmas decorating but it will have to wait until the week following Thanksgiving because I am doing a show on the 29th - normally on that Saturday my house looks like a cyclone hit it with all the Christmas totes sitting in each room lol.

    Oh - and I really don't care at all during Christmas time if my treats aren't's time for fun and food!
