Hello and welcome December! I love the last month of the year. It is filled with busy days, joy, music, church, birthdays, shopping, friends and lots of family fun!  I spent the days after Thanksgiving decorating our home. I have the house all decorated and today I will go over to my dad's to decorate his apartment. Once that is done, it's on to St Nicholas Day and my birthday celebration this weekend.

My daughter Angie always gives me tiny gifts wrapped up like an advent calendar for each day of the month of December. It is my birthday gift every year. I really don't know when she started this, but she has never missed for years and years. It is so much fun and I just look so forward to it and love it. Even the years when she was really broke, she gave me the same gift. Yesterday was December 1st, so I opened my first treat! How cute is this! It's a Cinderella slipper filled with Jelly Belly candies.

Thank you my sweet Angie.

Time for one more cup of coffee and then I need to get ready to go over to dad's. Let the decorating continue!
