What should we do on a snowy Saturday??

...we should have the newlyweds over and make Christmas cards... After the morning walk.....


So that's what we did after a fun morning of shopping and having breakfast at Cracker Barrel. Love that place. The "General Store" is all Christmasy and pretty. And the biscuits- the lightest and the best around. Mmmmm - my face was all sorts of happy!
Found this cute little tin and K-mart and know I had to have it...one of my decorating philosophies is that every room needs a little splash of red...and this cutie-patootie is just what I needed...


The pups couldn't believe that after Randy had shoveled for them yesterday, it snowed all over again on their green grass. However, we are on a "schedule" which includes our morning walks...


PS - Lulu, the fashionista, refuses to wear any kind of sweater, or coat, or hoodie..she thinks she look silly in them...Braxton loves his sweater. He's not sooo vain...

So after the walk they just sat in the window and watched it come down in big-ole flakes..and tried to console each other..



The card-making was a great success- even the groom got in to the action....



He's pretty good I think....and he just came up with those ..I kinda need an idea..or a photo..or a kit...so I made these...

These are some little library card holder-thingys with pull-out invitations to our neighborhood gathering...inside, on the pull out, is all the stuff about the invite..


The bride's cards were lovely - she'll always make certain things are perfect - and they were!

And what's a card-making party without munchies?? I don't know...I've never been to one..

Grandma's homemade fudge....and the usual..cheese & crackers, chips & dips..a really good hard salami that Randy gets cut really thin.....I can almost hear my arteries slamming shut....


It was a really, really, really good day. The kind we need on a snowy Saturday in December....

Hope your day was great too.

What fun you are! Are you the mother of the bride or mother of the groom? They are both lucky to have you as their own!
