Pen and Ink...and maybe some paint

A wonderful Christmas was had by all...

I hope you all enjoyed your Christmas. Grandkids certainly add to the fun! I spent the day at my daughter and son-in-law's house. We ate breakfast together and then watched the girls open gifts. Lots of excitement! Then we played with many of their puzzles and board games.

It was a nice day of visiting and enjoying each other's company. One last gift was saved to unveil today. A new sled! Adam pulled the girls around the yard. They'll have to find a hill somewhere. Their property is pretty flat, but I think Grandpa, down the road has some hills.

My good kids gave me a couple of gift cards for Amazon. I had a fun evening yesterday spending them! I bought some art supplies. I'll try to remember to blog about my purchases when they come in the mail. Yippee!
I'm tired after a weekend of work. Tomorrow is a day off, so I think I'll turn in so I'm rested enough to enjoy it!

Praying you all have a blessed 2016! Shalom!

I said to the man who stood at the Gate of the Year,
"Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown."
And he replied,
"Go out into the darkness, and put your hand into the Hand of God.
That shall be better than light, and safer than a known way."

  1. The grandkids do make life exciting, don't they? A new sled! Wahoo! I remember when my sibs and I got a new sled for Xmas. It was a big deal.

    Hooray for you getting some new artsy supplies!

  2. What fun choosing your Amazon treasures! I hope you had a restful day off today. Looks like you have quite a bit of snow!

  3. Dear Lisa, you had a wonderful Christmas with your dears!

    Lovely tired Christmas-man with the sleeping cats in the chair!!

    Nice snow!!

    I love the sentence of Minnie Huskins very much - THANK YOU!

  4. Don't you love soft little gnomes tucked into lovely illustrations? I know! Me, too!
    I'm glad you had fun and I pray many "feet ups" for you, sweet friend.

  5. Sleds are such a good gift for kids in wintery parts of the world! Our Peter asked for a flexible flyer one year in Massachusetts, and that's what he got, and loved it. Sounds like a lovely Christmas day with the kids! Sorry you must still work -- I know it's really exhausting. I know you're a blessing to others! Happy New Year to you, Lisa!


Thanks for dropping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts! :)
