Don’t forget to sign up so we can all visit and comment on each others pics/blogs! IT’S GREAT FUN! You’ll love walking down memory lane – just as I do! The above picture is me, and my very first grandson Ryan. We were living in an apartment in Oaklawn, IL They lived upstairs from me. Now mind you this was Christmas 1989, and I was 39 here, and he was a year old. Yes, my darling daughter made me a grandmother at the ripe old age of “38” YRS. OLD! But isn’t he cute! He’s 21 today & a graduate of ITT Tech. So proud of him. Oh, the young lady is my brother’s oldest child, Marie. Yes, she was named after me. By the way, the baby’s mama is NightOwlMama, my first baby, and Ryan is her first born.


Note from Java’s husband says she’s not feeling well, and in the hospital.  I wish her well and a speedy recovery.  Please go to her blog & leave her a get well note for when she comes back.  I’m sure it’ll warm her heart with all the well wishes!  Never Growing Old!!

My question is: Who decorates your home?

ME!!!! But the hubby does put the outside lights on the house and he does help with the ornaments. I do the rest.

Wasn’t that fun?  ~hehe~  Have a Great Weekend Everyone, and THANKS for stopping by, and following me.   Oh!  Don’t forget about this Monday – “MONDAY’S MUSIC MOVES ME”.  This week’s theme, and the whole month of December is Christmas music.  I truly hope you ALL can make it.

    We all pitch in after Thanksgiving dinner.


    All our family helps decorate the inside. My husband and son take care of the outside lights.


    My youngest son, Mark, every year would decorate both inside and out, includng setting up his collectible Snow Village (just that took a day and I lost a room in my house). He now lives 5 hrs away so this year, either he drives home to decorate lol or it will be hubby and I trying to decorate.


    My daughter, Dani usually helps me decorate the tree, but she doesn’t get out of school until Dec 23, so it looks like I’m on my own this year.


    Oh I do the decorating. May some day the family will enjoy joining in.


    I do, my husband helps with the tree


    Love the pictures.


    I guess it all depends upon who wants the house decorated more 🙂

    Have a great Friday!


    Your grandson is adorable!!! I am the house decorator over here!


    I think I end up doing most of it, but hubby will help if I ask. Most of our decorating this year will be kids crafts though.


    I agree. Definitely cute!

    And I am the one who decorate the home.

    Dh makes sure cracks are sealed and gutters cleaned etc.


    I do! 😀


    Oh, sweetie, you know how much I love the photos of you, your kids and grandkids… thanks again for sharing.
    I went over to offer prayers for Java, hope all works out well.
    As for decorating, you probably already know this about us, but, Bill & I do it together, just like everything else around here. 🙂
    We have done the outside already and now have to work on the inside. It takes us a while because I can only do a little each day and he has to do all the lifting and climbing.
    Can’t wait to see your photos. 🙂


    My son and I decorate our house.


    I think it’s great to be a young grandma! My friend became one when she was 34!!!


    Awwwww, that smiling face is pretty much plenty to make anyone’s heart just melt away xD

    You look so proud in that picture!! And I have no doubt you’re proud of him today-It sounds like he’s doing a lot to be proud of 🙂

    Decorating-THE FEMALES! I don’t even think my dad knows what decorating IS anymore. LOL

    Happy Friday Dolly ^.^


    Those are really cute photos of you and your 1st Grandchild! Very nice memories.


    The kids and I do the decorating.


    I LOVE that smile!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    as for decorating….
