Christmas Is Coming People!

My Favorite Time Of The Year, Christmas!!

I love this time of the year.  Christmas is my favorite holiday.  I start my shopping list in September and through the months I pick up things and stash them like a squirrel.  I have great fun bringing everything out and laying it all over my bed and sorting to see where everything goes.

I have huge stocking’s for my grandkids and have a blast filling them. I get laughed at a lot, but that’s okay I don’t mind a bit.

Wrapping is the fun part I enjoy every part of it, and take pride in what it looks like.

 This weekend the house decorating is going to start.  My granddaughter is coming for the night and is going to help. She is so excited telling everyone. Lol!

Christmas decorating

Here are some of what I am getting them for Christmas, great idea’s for everyone!

They love to read so I got them books, Ripley’s Believe it or Not! 

They take lots of time to read it.  It is full of interesting tidbits.

Another great reading book I got for them was Guinness World Records 2017

I try to get useful and educational items for them, making sure they are fun and interactive.  Try to stay away from all electronics they get enough of that all year long.  Believe it or not they like the hands on games and books.

I also got them an old fashioned game for them to play when they are together.  We used to play pick up Jax’s when we were young so as a retro idea for Christmas Eve I got all the Grandkids sets of Jax’s.

Played Jax’s by the hour’s with my friends got pretty good at it. So I may even we playing with them brings back memories.

Don’t now anyone who wouldn’t like these things for Christmas, great fun both playing games and reading.  They read all these interesting facts out load for all of us to hear and it makes for a great together time.  Which seems to be in short supply with all the electronics today.

This is the View from our Patio .  It is incredibly beautiful in                the summer .

In my blogs I will be giving some real good recipes out for you to try and enjoy . I am working on them now and will shortly have enough to upload into my weekly blog.

In the coming months I am also going to be putting out a cook book on some of our family recipes that have come down through many generations.  I am in the process of putting it together .

Also you will get an insight into what Northern British Columbia can offer for outdoor camping, fishing and having a lot of fun .  We have four distinctive seasons all of which are beautiful and unique.

There will be a lot of information on natural health and the things you can do to help look after yourself .  I had been sick for over ten years and I finally took my own heath into my hands and through research and trying alternative  ideas I have helped myself .   Hopefully some of my information will help if you are looking for something different either to do with your physician or on your own. I worked and am still working with mine.  So these alternatives aren’t to replace your physician just to add to the options that natural products and ideas can give.

So keep posted for new and informing  ideas,recipes and tips

Have a great day !!
