This adorable Santa was made by a friend, Debbie Noell.  Isn’t he just adorable.  See that cute little mouse between his feet?  I just love all the details.

Super Simple Sundays

The countdown is on….only ten more shopping days until Christmas!  That may not be accurate, as some stores seem to ignore special holidays and stay open, anyway. 

Try to stay in the moment, enjoy these crazy busy days.

Throwback Thursday

My Grandma, Mary Maxwell (Mother’s side) at 14 in Edinburgh, Scotland, just before crossing the Atlantic to make a home in Canada.  My two year old grandson is named after her.

My Grandma Mary and Grandpa Charles Trites.  Grandma was under five feet and Grandpa was six-four.  Quite a pair.  They came to live with us when they were in their sixties, after retiring from running a mom and pop grocery store (the precursor of a 7/11) in Seattle.
