Tearing down a deck, family Christmas, and dirty santa!

      That's what we've been doing these last few days! We've been in a whirlwind of activities, but I love it! We also went to an estate sale and a thrift store. I purchased some goodies I'll share later. The deck was attached to an above ground pool and we finally got the rest of it down! Now, all we lack is getting the pool down. I wonder if this project will be done in time for summer?
      If anyone has any advice for migraine sufferers, please leave me a comment. I had one all of Thanksgiving week and again this past weekend. They stop me in my tracks! I did have an ease during the day long enough to attend the family Christmas, thank the Lord! I totally sympathize with those who suffer from these terrors!
      We attended a fun gathering last night where we played dirty santa. I really liked the gift I took. It contained a nice metal, holiday basket with a bow that I purchased at the thrift store for a dollar! I put in it a pizza cutter, measuring spoons, and tongs, all purchased new at WM. I really could use these items, so when my time came to choose the gift, I chose my own. I was the first to go and I was so afraid someone was going to take it away from me but they didn't. I was so happy to bring it home! Is that selfish of me? The other gifts were nice too, but I liked mine the best! Blessings from Bama!

The dirty santa gift.

Do you like his doll? (This is not my house. Wished I had that picture!)

He loves playing with the children.

Oh it's not a sunk pump, it's a clock!

Get me off of this thing, it's alive!


  1. Thanks for your kind comment on my post about not being able to respond to all comments! :) We just tore our old deck down and had a paver patio put in its place...so much better!

  2. Why, you've been busy working, and having fun. Oh no, migraines. I get the painless ones where you get flashes of light and weirdness. Sometimes your diet can trigger them. Too much caffeine and such. Hope you have a Merry Christmas.


I love reading your comments! Leave one, if you wish.
