Happy New Year's my friends! As the year comes to an end, I am trying to keep on a positive note. As difficult as it has been to see my dear, sweet Dad fail so much, there has also been many blessings - like our 7 grandchildren! In 2011 another sweet little baby boy will be arriving too - that makes 8!
This has been a CRAZY week! All of the kids have been on Christmas vacation, so all of the older ones wanted a turn at our house. I think I've had 6 sleepovers since last week. What the heck? They only have Christmas once a year.
The other day I had three (Abbey, Jack and Ellie) and they had a ball! They went sledding in the back yard,

came in to some warm cocoa and cookies,

did a little kareoke and played and played. They all wanted to stay all night, but this grandma needed a little rest at the end of the day!


Our Gannon has been with us a few nights and has helped me out at the shop some too. He loves to help my customers carry out their purchases, talk to people when they come in and spend a little time over at Zanie Janie's.

On Christmas evening we were blessed with 5 out of 7, then we had our celebration all over again on Monday. It was so much fun and there were so many twinkling eyes!
We were going to keep Abbey and Lucy tonight while Ashley and Tony helped do a wedding (she did the cakes and is officiating), but our girls got together and Amanda is keeping the girls. Dick and I are heading up to our cottage for a much needed rest. Can't wait to get there!
For you gals that are nearby, I just wanted to let you know that everything in the shop is 20% off and Christmas is 50% off through a week from Saturday. Then the rest of the Christmas will go bye-bye and new things will start pouring in. There will be new handmades, lots more furniture and then the markets are a little later in the month. Holly Hills Primitives and friends are all brainstorming for some fun changes this year. I'll let you know what they might be soon, so keep watching.
Well, time to go to the shop and sell, sell, sell!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!
Until next time...

  6. HAPPY NEW YEAR DAWN,
    I think your family loves coming there no matter if it's a holiday or not...how could those wonderful Grandchildren want to stay away.
    I think Grandpa and Grandma make it so special for them.
    I pray for a wonderful 2011 selling season for you Dawn.

    I must say it was our pleasure meeting you and your husband this year in Columbus.

    Have a wonderful New Year
    Praying for your father Dawn.

    Karen
