Christmas Past!


My sincerest thanks to all my dear friends and relatives who prayed for my sweet daughter Kim. She did very well with the surgery. We are so pleased that they didn't find anything they didn't already know…a congenital condition that contributed to the loss of the first kidney. No "C" word or disease of the kidney, for that we are so thankful.
A stent is offering relief now and a reevaluation in a month will determine a more permanent solution. So glad this phase is over and she has relief. Please continue to remember her in your prayers.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
We will be decorating for Christmas the first week of December so I want to share some scenes from Christmas past. Some of you may have seen these pics and some were before bogging and the pictures are not so great. I hope you enjoy!

Welcome to our home
we're so glad to have you visit!























Remember, don't peek, keep your tinsel straight and dream of sugar plums…
SANTA CLAUSE IS COMING TO TOWN!

I truly hope you enjoyed reminiscing about Christmas Past!
I will be back soon with this year's decor.
This year will be our sweet A. J.'s first Christmas!
Halloween Outfit
Hamming it up for the camera! Aren't those two teeth cute, she now has four.
She loves her Mama!
Thanksgiving (Turkey) Day outfit! We changed her clothes in the car. Don't tell me you never did that!
PARTY TIME!!
May your holidays be filled with the spirit of 
"THE LITTLE CHILD".

Happy Thanksgiving!
Ginger

I am so glad your daughter has come through this illness so well and I will be praying for her when she goes for her re-evaluation. I do also want to say how beautiful your pictures from Christmas past are. The mercury glass and your mantle, and in fact everything is gorgeous. I can't wait to see this years holiday decor. God speed for your daughters recovery.

Thank goodness everything went well with your daughter, Ginger. I'm so happy to hear she is doing well. Your daughter and your family are in our prayers for a quick and healthy recovery.

Your decorations are spectacular! And that A.J. oh my word, such cuteness especially when "hamming" it up. How exciting for your family to be celebrating Christmas with A.J. for her very first time. There's nothing quite like it:)

Thank you so much for sharing, Ginger...We are remembering you and yours in our prayers...

So sorry to hear what your daughter has been dealing with, but glad there was no surprises!! I know us Moms are all the same, we just can't bear to have anything wrong with our kids! Wow, if you are going to put up the same amount of decorations as last year, you should have started in July!!

Your tree was gorgeous along with all your home decor and mantel. I am so happy to hear about Kim!!!!! Wonderful news. Happy Thanksgiving to you Bob and family! XO

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Ginger,
The best news is that about daughter Kim indeed. What a relief that is and a BIG reason to celebrate next week's Thanksgiving in a different way.
Your decorations are always very special but so is your cute little granddaughter. LOVE those two teeth, that makes them so unique for a short period of time. Changing in the car for such mini people is an easy thing to do and why not?!
Enjoy this precious little girl over the holidays and have a great ending of this week.
Hugs,
Mariette
