A Merry Little Christmas

We’ve had a beautiful White Christmas this year.
*“Peace” Scherenschnitte is my talented sister’s handiwork. She doesn’t need a Cricut like I do ;)
We have enjoyed a wonderful and very blessed Christmas, and hope you have as well. May we truly keep Christmas in our hearts all year long.
See you soon!

Merry Christmas from Gracie & Ruby

It’s a tradition. Friends now ask in advance  if we’re doing a Ruby-Gracie card each year. Monday was our chosen day for the photo shoot, and was only slightly warmer than the Arctic weekend we had just survived. Earlier that day I was very inspired when I saw Fergus of Morning Bray Farm peering up and over the gate, looking dapper and handsome in his reindeer antlers. (If you haven’t visited, please visit the darling donkey bros over at Morning Bray!). So, back to Fergus… I thought, hey… this pose could be doable on a cold day. After only a mild little rodeo session, and Santa hats thrown off once or twice, we ended up with this.


We didn’t quite accomplish Fergus’ adorable flaring nostril look… but it will work.

{The girls send hugs and kisses to Fergus and all of his darling burro bros}


Happy Hee Haw Christmas to all!

Send Some Love to our Troops

It takes five minutes or less. Head on over, right this moment, to Xerox’s Let's Say Thanks site to choose from several child-designed postcards to send to our troops. You can choose a message to go with, or customize your own message. Xerox will print them out and send them to our troops. I missed the snail mail call this year for sending Christmas cards to our troops, so I was delighted to find this way to send some thank-you sentiments to those who serve our country.

Take a moment to read some of the feedback from the troops as well. They really do appreciate it!

“Thank you so much for the post card. It is so nice to receive things in the mail here. Some would not believe it but the simple good feeling of going to the company mail room and the clerk saying "Yes, you have mail" is an uplifting experience.  Even if it’s just a letter saying "hi" makes our day! Thanks again for your thoughts and prayers.”

Thank you, Troops, for serving our country and keeping us free. And thank you Xerox for providing this service. Xerox says it will continue this “Let’s Say Thanks” program as long as there is a need.
