Blog Hop Day!!! 

What a JOY to have you visit my blog today!!
Christmas is on it's way and there are so many things to day!!
I hope that you take time to find the
Joy in the Christmas Season
and share a little of it with those around you!! 

 Hey everyone.....I hope you're having a good time
so far with the Christmas Joy Blog Hop hosted by Buttermilk Basin
and finding JOY in visiting 
each designer's blog.

It's Day #3 of the hop and
that's day to share!! 
joy (joi)
the emotion of great delight or happiness caused by
 something exceptionally good or satisfying.

The are so much JOY in my Christmas
memories that I hold in my heart
"bringing home the tree"
is one of them!
We have driven up to the mountain and hiked forever through the snow
in the search of the perfect tree...

We've driven from lot to lot in the city hunting and hunting for the right one....

I remember a Christmas when all the pine needles fell off the tree
So my parents went and bought a little silver tree at the department store!

These days I send my kids out and they bring me home
The most wonderful trees!!
I think I enjoy these trees the most!
It's such s JOY to see the excitement in their faces
as they anticipate my reaction to their find!

I love going to see their trees as well
and have them show me
how they decorated their tree!

So this season when you are
"bringing home the tree"
I hope you are filled with JOY!!
Here is a little red trunk ornament
 for you to add to your Christmas decorations!!

Of course being a nana
I have to say my biggest JOY does come from my six grandchildren!

G'day mate! What a great little ornament. It will go nicely with a pillow kit I bought from Terri Staat's Sweet Treasures to make for my son-in-law. Looks like you are enjoying your sojourn in Oz.

When I tried to open the design it said page not found. Have you removed it? Please let me know -- thanks.

Unknown said...

Thank you. It's an adorable design, but I'm having trouble downloading too. Mine says there's an error from Google. Hope we can resolve it and get it. It's to cute to miss.

I am unable to get the pdf file to print. My printer just passes a blank page. I have never had this problem before. Is anyone else having problems? I have tried it numerous times...
