We love to visit Mrs. Sally and see all her Christmas decorations.  Her walls are covered with these beautiful wall hangings she has made.

She also has so many nativity scenes.

This one came from Israel.  I think it is my favorite.

She has lots of snowmen.

We had a really nice visit.  She cooked a beef roast with potatoes and carrots.  I took fresh made rolls and an oatmeal pie.

Not much going on here.  Just normal stuff.  Hubby is gone to work and I am letting the girls sleep in a little bit.  Clothes are in the machine washing and dishes are waiting.

I hope you all have a great day and God bless.

Mrs. Sally’s Home

Thursday evening we went to our pastor’s home for a visit.    We ate supper with them and had a wonderful visit.  Mrs. Sally, pastor’s wife, had lots of beautiful Christmas decorations up.  This nativity scene was purchased in Israel.  It is made of olive wood.  Very pretty.

This carousel came from Germany.  You can’t really see it but on top of the carousel are propellers.  The heat from the candles cause the carousel to go around.

This is Miss Izzy.  Pastor Tom tells her all the time she is the most beautiful cat God ever created.  I think she believes him.

Julie and Sadie had a great time together.

Mrs. Sally is a great seamstress.  I think I have mentioned before she is teaching my girls to sew.  This quilt was so bright and colorful.   I thought you all would enjoy seeing it too.

We have still been having vehicle troubles.  Today, we took the girls over to church for play practice.  Our youth christmas play is tomorrow.  Hubby thought the alternator was going bad on the van.  We were going over to C-burg to Auto Zone to have them check it.  We started having more serious trouble with it, so Hubby thought we should just try to make it home.  We didn’t make it.  About 4 miles from home, the van decided that was just all it could do.  It stopped right in the middle of the road.    I’m here to tell you all God is good!  Not more that 5 min. after the van quit a young man came by that we used to go to church with.  He went up to his Grandpaws and got a pickup truck and a chain.  He and Hubby hooked the van up to the truck and he pulled us all the way home.  No charge!    Anyway, it is the alternator.   So I guess the van will have to be parked for a few days until Hubby can get it fixed. 

Well, that’s been our day.  I hope you all have a great evening and God bless.
