AWARD TIME AGAIN PLUS ANOTHER GIVEAWAY

I received a few more awards this past week...so wanted to get them posted and thank those who passed them along to me! Plus, there is another Giveaway going on!!!

Be sure to drop by and visit Hootin' Anni. She is having a great Blog Giveaway. If you haven't met Anni, you will love getting to know her. She is a wonderful lady with a heart of gold, and she's been blessed with many talents. The deadline for her giveaway is Dec. 31st, so hurry on over and get your name in just by posting a comment! To get to her Giveaway, just click on the button below!



The following is from Hootin' Anni' as her Holiday Gift! Thank you, Anni! I haven't known Anni all that long, but it doesn't take but one visit to her blog, and you'll also be hooked! She is one talented lady and is always coming up with a different new header on her blog!




My good friend Merle at Merle's Third Try gave me this lovely Butterfly award recently...and I am supposed to pass it on to 10 bloggers. I would like to pass it on to ALL of my regular readers since the last time I chose a certain few to receive an award, there were hurt feelings, and I am not out here in Blogland to hurt anyone's feelings. Eventually, everyone ends up receiving it, anyhow. Merle, I hope you understand why I am doing it this way, and I do hope it is okay to do it like this. Merle is from Australia and has the neatest blog. If you're having a bad day and could use a good laugh, you need to visit Merle's blog! You will fall in love with her just as I have! She is one grand lady from 'down under'! Thank you so much for this lovely award, Merle! Your friendship means the world to me, and I love ya!




This Christmas Spirit Award was kindly passed on to me by Mary at Mary's Writing Nook. Thank you, my dear friend.


Below are the rules of this award:


1. You must be a true Christmas lover to receive this award.
2. You must link back to who gave you the award.
3. You must list 5 things that you love about Christmas.
4. Pass it on to however many you like, but to at least one person to keep the Christmas cheer going.
5. Let the recipients know you have tagged them.

Five things I love about Christmas.

1. The spirit of love that surrounds us this time of year.
2. The joy of giving to others.
3. The quality time spent with my children.
4. The shopping, wrapping, and baking days my daughter and I share together.
5. The holiday dinner with both of my children at the dinner table at the same time, a rare occasion now that they are grown and one lives away!

I am passing this award on to ALL of my regular readers. I am tagging you all! Please take it, enjoy it, and pass it on!


This next one is also from Mary, given as her Christmas Gift to all of her readers. Thank you so much, Mary! It is just so touching!


And another Butterfly Award! This one is from Mary. Thank you so much, Mary! I value your friendship so much and love you for the fine lady that you are! Mary has a great blog and a great big Husky dog, too! Her photos will take you all over as she gets around to many interesting places! She is from Canada and I have seen places, through her blog pics, that I have never seen before.

And......two more from Mary! Thank you, again, Mary! You are so generous with your awards to everyone!

In a few days, I hope to post some pics of some Christmas decorations..... If I don't get to them, I will post them right after Christmas. These next few days are going to be kind of hectic for me! Just in case, I am.....

Wishing you all a verrrry Merry Christmas!!!


But let us not forget the real Reason for the Season!

Congrats on your awards, Nancy. I appreciate you passing them on, but I think I've already been given them so I'll leave them to your other readers who haven't already received them.

Hope you have a happy, blessed and joyous Christmas, my friend. :o)

Much love,

Diane

Congratulations on all the wonderful awards Nancy! Very well deserved indeed!

We got just hammered with snow last night! About two feet or close to it! I've got to bundle up and go feed barn kitty, glad the plow man has been here. After Christmas I am going to catch her again and take her in for the 'works'!

Merry Christmas Nancy, I am so glad I have gotten to know you. You are a kindred spirit! Merry Christmas to you and yours!! xoxo

Hi Nancy!
I'm so excited your gonna have a pizzelle day with your daughter!! And you have the Cadillac of pizzelle irons! They should be extra good!! Oh the aroma that hangs in your house is going to be awesome! Now here's a special health hint. I am prone to get bronchitis sometimes. If I'm having a problem like that occurring when it's pizzelle time, I open a window a little and point a fan out the window to draw some of the steam out of the kitchen. That way your not breathing in too much of it. Just an FYI that's helped me through the years.
Have fun!! And Merry Christmas!!
Hugs, Sherry

Dear Nancy ~~ Congratulations
on all your awards which are well deserved. Thank you so much for the kind words about my blog and me. Quite a few people pass on awards to all their readers, so that was OK. Thanks for your comments and Christmas wishes. I had a lovely one and hope yours was great as well. Thank you also for your sympathy for our friends. We never know what is ahead of any of us. Have a very Happy New Year dear Nancy with lots of happiness, peace and joy in 2009. Love and hugs, Merle.
