Hi, I'm still around!  For some reason I haven't been able to get onto my blog to post anything.  I've tried to contact someone but haven't gotten any responses.  I'll try a quick post today and see if it will work this time. 

I can't believe it is December 16th!  Shoot, I can't believe it is December!  I've been super busy and time is just flying by.  I don't have pictures of any of the Christmas cards or projects I've been doing but I'll take some and post them if my blog will cooperate for a few days.

I bought these little white pumpkins before Halloween and had fun with the grandchildren coloring them.  Mine would be the kind of plain one on the right.  I was thinking about fixing supper and didn't do as good a job as the kids did.  We had fun though.

I participated in Project Rudolph this year.  Their goal is to get Christmas goodie bags to as many of the soldiers serving in the Middle East as they can, I think their goal for this year was 30,000.  We decorated brown lunch bags and made ornaments to put in them.  They also put candy in them along with letters, one from an adult, one from a teenager and 2 from children.  I got my friends to write letters, something that seems to be a dying art these days!  The ornaments pictures above are from the cub scout troop at my church.  They made 73 ornaments in all! 

These are some of the ornaments I made.  I didn't make 73 but I think it was somewhere around 30.  I need to start earlier in 2015 so I can help out more.
Well, I reckon I need to run to the post office to mail a package to my daughter in Colorado.  Hopefully I'll be posting again very soon!
