First Snow Fall and my Secret Santa Gifts!

When we returned home yesterday, I was surprised to see a package sitting on my doorsteps! The box contained my gifts from my Secret Santa! Last month I participated in a Secret Santa Swap and I didn't expect my gifts to come so early! Ilene Murphy had my name and she made me so happy! It's like she knew exactly what I liked. The papers,stamp and embellishments are so perfect. I love my gifts and thank you so very much Ilene and Happy Holiday Wishes to you.






Here are a couple pictures of our first snowfall. I took these before we left on our Thanksgiving holiday vacation. The highways were clear and in the town my son lived in there wasn't any snow at all!

Gorgeous snow photos. I love to see bare branched trees with a dusting of snow.
Fab Secret Santa gifts. My team mates & I do SS every year.

I have been poorly so long now I don't get round as many blogs as I used to. Started with a cold two months ago & I can't get rid of it. I haven't breathed through my nose more than two 4 hours a day or slept a full night in those 8 weeks. I have to go to work as my company will not pay me & being single I have the bills to pay. The doctor gives me stuff but I think I need rest more than anything!

Wow, you got some great goodies from your Secret Santa!!!!!! The pics of the snow are gorgeous but I do admit that I'm happy that I can look at and enjoy how gorgeous snow is and not have to live in it. The boys were in shorts over the Thanksgiving weekend :-) and I'm complaining since it's only 60 now so I'm getting cold.

Great looking Santa stuff!! I can't wait to see what you create with it!! Your snow photos are beautiful!! They make me home sick. We've lived in GA for the past 6 yrs and it has snowed once...sigh. I miss looking out the window at ice on the trees and snow covered grounds. Oh and the cold crisp air!!
