No Williamsburg for us....

It looks as if our Ladies Only trip to Williamsburg is going to be cancelled due to weather. We were scheduled to leave after church on Sunday and come home on Wednesday. We were looking forward to it, especially my Chelsea. She cried after she went to bed last night because of her disappointment. I would not have known except that she came out for a drink of water and her eyes were all red and puffy. Poor girl! It was the first time she was going to get to go with the ladies.
I, will be fine to get the extra time to finish up the two fundraisers that are currently going strong and then get that Christmas shopping and decorating done.

Speaking of shopping and decorating. I have been just skimming some of your blogs lately because I am so buried in the candle projects, but the decorations are so pretty and I have been enjoying the pictures on all of your blogs. I will soon be sharing more, and better, pictures because Warren and I bought a new camera for our Christmas present. We have decided that we much prefer the years we purchase one thing we both want rather than trying to find a few little things to put under the tree. It is nicer on the budget, when we get something we can truly use and it is fun to shop together.

The decorating? No one would know it is the Christmas Season by looking at the outside of our home. I hope this weekend the Moravian Star will be hung and wreaths will go up. We will have to see about the weather.

I am not a big one for lots of lights and all of that. Simple is better when I have to do it. Blessings on all of you with the time and initiative to do it up right! WOW! Maybe one day I'll reach that point.

Hope your day is a good one and that you are getting your odds and ends done.

I'm sorry your trip was cancelled. I would have been crying too, being that Wmsburg is one of my favorite places on earth. Hugs to your daughter from Haus Frau.

Simple decorating. Yep. Less is more. Simple elegance. :o)

Becky - I'm so sorry you won't be able to go to Williamsburg. I would have cried as well. Dh and I went there for our college reunion in October. It was wonderful!!!

Sorry to hear that you're not able to go on your trip! Poor girl.

We will look forward to your pictures! Getting something nice like that for the two of you is such a good idea! I will have to think about this for next year.

Good luck on all your shopping...its getting busy out there!! I did the last of mine today and I needed patience with all those people on the road and no parking spots! ha ha
