Merry Christmas Everyone


Lil Miss Angel loves to snuggle by the Christmas tree, although, right now she is sleeping there.

Are you ready? or are you one of those last minute shoppers?  I usually have everything done shortly after Thanksgiving.  The tree goes up that first weekend after and doesn’t come down until January 6th, which is the 12th day of Christmas, Epiphany.  Even in “My Spot” I decorate inside and outside similar to what I used to do in my “other life”, although it is scaled down considerably.   One thing that I never had in any other place that I have lived was a fireplace.  It’s ironic, that now that I am in an RV, I have one where I can hang our stockings. 


I used to have 5, that’s right 5, of the largest plastic containers filled with Christmas STUFF.  Now I have one small cabinet in my bedroom where I store what I have kept.  If it doesn’t fit, I can’t keep it.  Those Christmas Boxes in the picture are all empty because that’s where I keep all the ornaments. 


The kids got all of their ornaments and anything else that they wanted.  The rest was given away.  How about you?  What happened to all of those “precious” memories of your’ s?  These last few days I have been making cookies, brownies, cake pops and a peppermint cake.  Most of it is going to be given away.  That’s fortunate as I would eventually eat it all.  It is all so yummy.

Last Friday all of the available Workampers met at Frank’s Place (a restaurant near the CG) for dinner.  I had the pork chops and onion rings.  I’m not sure what the others had.  Mine was okay and as usual I brought most of it home to have later.  The brownie cake pops were a big hit at the dinner.  That’s what is in the little bags on the table

It was fun to get together socially.  Most of us will have short or no hours for the next few days.  Next weekend is the Chili Cook Off and the CG will be quite full, so we will all be busy. 

Tomorrow I will be going to Church for the Christmas Eve Candlelight Service.  I will be bringing some of the cookies there for before the service.  Then on Christmas Day I have been invited to share Christmas Dinner with Colleen and her family. 

I hope that you all have a wonderful and Blessed Christmas.

Thank you for visiting

Susan and Angel


  1. Merry Christmas. Your 5er looks so festive and cozy.

    Enjoy your holiday.

  2. Merry Christmas, Susan! I saved a few Christmas decs for the fifth wheel. I had so many decorations! A lot I gave away, and I sent my boys each some of their special ones.

  3. Merry Christmas to you and Angel. I asked my son if he wanted any of the Christmas ornaments that I had bought for him each year and he told me no - that he wanted to buy his own. So it all went to Goodwill.

  4. Your Spot looks very festive,for sure!

    Merry Christmas to you and Angel from me and Katie!

  5. I am always amazed by how cleverly you decorate and this Christmas is no exception.

    Hope you've had a lovely day and are ready to celebrate new Year.

    Wishing you a Prosperous and Happy 2013.
