Looking forward...

Happy New Year everyone!
 We spent the weekend at our neighbor's RV pad at a motor coach resort in Indio, CA.
"Niiiiiiiiiice" doesn't quite describe it.
Joy and Dale got a spot across the golf course.
This was the view we woke up to every morning...
 Looking in from the street - it's a double wide spot.
It has a casita with a full kitchen and 3/4 bath,
 and then a full kitchen, 
living room and dining area
under the patio covers.

 Cooking in this kitchen was simply incredible.
 Made me want to come home and rip the 
one here at the house out and start afresh! 


From the golf cart path looking in.
I do believe this is the most beautiful 
spot we have ever stayed in.
Thank you Mike and Maureen.


Happy New Year Everyone...

I look forward to seeing what 2012 brings our way!

All is well...

So here it is the end of the story!
The package arrives! WHOO HOOO!!!!!!
 Zack and Chris...
 The most adorable, sweetest, most 
WONDERFUL SIL in the world!
I couldn't have hand picked any one girl for Chris whom I cherish more than I do Christie.
 These two guys are just the world to me.
Aunties have to get it right - ya know?
And I DID! EXACTLY!

Ordeal over. Whew!
Golly I miss these guys. 
Maybe next Christmas needs to be at their 
house in Colorado in the SNOW!!!!

Well, all the trimmings and treasures, paper and ribbons, china and silver is all packed away  until next year. My house is once again quiet and calm and CLEAN! Sigh. 

Happy New Year everyone! Be safe! I can't wait to see what 2012 has to hold for the DeCapite family!!!

HUGS!

THE SEASON OF MIRACLES!

You aren't going to believe this!

FED EX FOUND THE BOX!

My son got an Email from them last night at 10:30 that the 10# box that was checked in on 12-13 was located and delivery date is expected to be 12-29!

I wish that box could talk...

Enjoy your times with family and friends.
Big hugs and smiles
from me to you!

Merry Christmas!

I'M SAD...

So...to make a long story short...my Christmas box filled with the entire family's gifts, on it's way to Colorado, is missing. No - no insurance, it hadn't reached that part of it's destination. It was shipped out of my son's office, and somewhere along the way ... somewhere between the post office and Fed Ex (yes you heard right, that's the way his office ships) it has disappeared.


My heart is heavy - there is no way I can replace all that was in that box. I will for the kids...but I can't for my bestest sister-in-law in the world. 


Somewhere out there - someone has my gifts. And it makes me angry. I know, I know it's the season for forgiveness and compassion. But - when people steal...especially something like gifts...it isn't out of need it is out of sheer ugliness.


I called Christie in tears, knowing it is quite doubtful we will ever see that box... and of course she was the positive outlook girl that she is. Yesterday I got this Email...




Made me start bawling all over again!
I love these boys!!! (and the SNOW!).
