I was going to write a "deeper" post today.  But I don't argue politic, religion, or anything else on my blog.  That's my choice.  I won't even argue football! (Why argue about the best? ha ha).  So, what I want to say is:  Congratulations, Mr. Obama.  And even though you were not my choice,  I am not so old that I can't appreciate change...I like change...especially if  it's for the good.  It shakes us up, makes us think...keeps us young.

Now, for more change! more political ads!  On to the Thanksgiving and Christmas ads!  

And more change:  I'm thinking about having a "House Divided" Christmas tree!




I've had traditionally decorated trees, a red, white and blue tree (after 911), and a black and orange tree (Austin High School).  So, why not!  I have plenty of orange and red ornaments.  I'll just add AU and UA ornaments, blue ornaments (which I don't have!) and Valarie has some cute ornaments she's 'crafting' over on her blog.  I could make some of those...and not just the Auburn ones!  I also saw UA and AU stockings at Cracker Barrel yesterday!  So cute!  I could make some of those! 

But, before I do the tree, I need to talk to my children.  Especially Auburn Guy.  He's not happy.  I'm not sure he'll be staying at Auburn.  I'm not sure if he's just burnt out from school, if he's just homesick, or what the problem is.  He'll be home for a week during Thanksgiving.  So will David.  Maybe we can work things out then. 

'Bama Girl will be home on Tuesday before Thanksgiving and then has to leave Friday  for Saturday's game.  Roll Tide!  We'll be celebrating her birthday (Nov. 29th)...she'll be twenty!  Since she'll be in Tuscaloosa, we'll celebrate early.  And because  our anniversary is the same date...we'll be doing that, too!  (Yes...I was giving birth on our 10th!)

It will be nice to have everyone home (at the same time!).  I'll be able to feed them, spoil them....and then they'll leave...but not for long.  Christmas is creeping up on us!




  1. I think that's a very good idea. :)

  2. Debbie, something wrong. When I try to load your blog, I get grey type on red background--very difficult to read. Maybe it's something with my computer or with Blogger. Maybe it'll clear up.I'll be back.

  3. I think that would be a great tree. I'm to the point I don't want to fool with putting one up and then taking it down. Does that make me lazy?? LOL

    I found you through After The Dust Settles and thought I'd come check you out. I'm a crafter too but never have the time because now I'm addicted to blogs and that's all I get done. ugh...

    I'll be back!

  4. Hi princess! Hope you are well...Christmas is indeed creeping up on us and get tree will be hot pink and brown this year, lol! I know, it sounds gross, but it's going to be just fabulous in MY! I almost did it pink and green in honor of my grandbaby...but the brown is too cool!

    Have a great weekend sweetie! Love you!
