Hi Everyone,

I am sure you are all very busy running around trying to get last minute gifts.  My tablet bit the dust, so I guess I will be getting myself a Christmas present. Any suggestions????????? I would appreciate any thoughts recommendations, or what to stay away from.
Before that happened, Hope and I had been very busy, but the last couple of days she has been staying home while I have been out doing shopping.  Sweet as she is, she holds me back from getting things done.  Hopefully she is at home wrapping gifts or doing the card list.

A couple of weeks ago a quite as few of us ladies helped decorate for the Women's Christmas tea .
Hope found a little animal friend and she was quite content just to sit and be still for awhile

Then she decided to help decorate the trees. Can you see her there on the ladder with my friend Kathleen?

She found some pinecone friends also.

Looks like she thinks she is an ornament. I think she had a pretty good day.

All you have to do is leave a comment on this post. I will announce the winner on the 21st

Have a blessed day, Diana


  1. Hope looks beautiful sitting in the tree! Thanks for a chance at a prize!

  2. I think Hope had a lovely time and I am thinking the tea is lovely as well - always a nice thing to attend - the tree will turn out beautiful - I have the Ipad - husband is thinking of getting his own tablet - the one with the Microsoft software - I do not recall the name right now - I am happy with my Ipad - so far it has worked out great - I purchased the heavy duty cover and it has been dropped but still works - Hope you and Hope find what you are looking for! Have a blessed week! Gail

  3. My hubby has a tablet. Not sure of tablet brand. He got it free when he bought my daughter a new laptop. I'll ask him what kind it is later today. We added pinecones to our new pre-lit tree. We had added pinecones to our former tree but hubby had attached them so well to the former tree we could not remove them so we bought new. Michaels had small pinecone clusters of 3 pinecones reg 99 cents on sale for 39 cents. Over a couple different shopping trips to Michales we found & bought some. I just laid them on the branches and will remove them when tree gets taken down and pack in a box for next yr. I have to start wrapping Christmas presents for daughter & hubby and birthday presents for daughter.

  5. Sorry to hear about your tablet!! Loving those cute photos of Hope!!!!!

  6. I think Hope is a perfect friend. Always there when you need her. Merry Christmas Hope and Diana.

  7. Hi Diana,

    I have the Toshiba thrive.I love mine but if I had to choose to get a new tablet I would choose the iPad air because of the new feature offered from cricut that will let you design from the tablet and then cut from the cricut explore. Good luck with your purchase.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year


  8. Hope is beautiful! She makes me smile! I enjoy seeing her antics! She looks so cute on the tree! Thank you for another generous giveaway! Merry Christmas to you and Hope!

  9. My teenagers use chromebook at the high school. They really like it. The elementary school that I work at has chromebooks in the library. They are always in use. I have checked online and you can get one for a reasonable price. Good luck with your search!

  10. how cute I might need a helper like that. lol. hugs

  11. I think you and your elf are having too much fun! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

  12. Hope looks like a great help! You should send her to Arizona to decorate my tree!

  13. Oh my goodness but Hope looks so adorable sitting there with her little snow bunny friend! What fun posts of Hope's antics this holiday season. I'm madly trying to finish up cards and gift tags...but at least all of my shopping is done (thankful for online shopping!). You and Hope have a wonderful christmas and enjoy the festivities!

  14. Hope looks a lot more social than my elf, Loopy! Of course, because my elf is an Elf on A shelf, he is not supposed to ever leave the house except at night when he flies off to Santa to report on my girl's behavior, lol, so he remains tucked away at home. However, we recently moved and he traveled with us in a pink Hello Kitty shoebox in the front seat of my car...complete with packing peanuts to keep him safe (since elfs don't have seat belts!). Hope looks like the perfect little party guest and decorator and I hope you all have a Merry Christmas!

  15. Looks like Hope had a great time and found some good friends to hang with. Thanks for sharing.
    Crafty hugs,

  16. Looks like Hope has been a very busy little girl! Have a super Christmas & a blessed New Year. I do enjoy your blog!

  17. How sweet Hope is to help decorate the tree!! She's so adorable!! I love my's an older one, 2nd generation I think, but it still works perfectly and I'm pretty much addicted to it!! Have a great day :)
