Love is...Give and Take/Pink Saturday Snowmen/Blues

Due to the craziness of the holidays I am combining a few memes to post all together. Please visit Marydon and join our Love is...My Sweets had a late paycheck this time around! So when it hit the bank this morning we went out to breakfast. This was us as we split the cash we got at the grocery store!

A favorite Barbie ornament on my Christmas tree. Tell Beverly I shared my pink with my Snowmen too!
My friendly snowman is thinking about his New Year resolution! Maybe he wants to lose a few pounds too!. He is trying to hide the Special K cereal behind him!
My tree! We never put ribbon or garland around it but it looks so pretty with the lights, especially early in the morning when it is still dark outside. We have had a real cold spell and more to come! No pretty tree skirt with the silly dogs! Too much shiny stuff to get them into trouble!
My Red Riding Hood ornament looks sweet but my Rudolph is hard to see. My I Believe in Jesus is made in the USA and features a pretty blue ribbon for Blue Monday too!
If you look closely you will see Rudolph with his shiny red nose! My late friend Patty K. made him for me and I tenderly care for him each year. She lost her battle with breast cancer many years ago and Rudolph takes center stage with all my favorite ornaments. A pretty blue felt skate hangs next to my metal ornie that says "I believe in Santa"!
Linda made this sweet Snowman ornament. He sits way up high with our phamily ornament that shows all of our names on Santa's list for 2012! He smells really nice!
A blue star for Jeremy!

Nick has a blue snowflake and he is next to a gingerbread boy!
A snowman who is crocheted and starched very regally stands with his blue and white scarf and a little bell that jingles!
A little blue bird adds a delightful whimsy to  my tree. His feathers are so soft! My mother always said your tree is not complete without a bird in it!

A metal snowman appears to be juggling his lights!

New Year's is just a  blink away. I hope 2013 is good to you and you are blessed with good health, much wisdom and lots of happiness.

Remember to share all your blues with Sally and share the snowmen with Beverly too. A little pink never hurts either!

Love seeing all of your Christmas pretties. Since we're here in California we don't have any snowmen (accept the ones that didn't make it out of the decoration box this year) so I went with the pink theme as well this week.
Have a happy 2013!

Hi Anne,

I think your tree might be more special without the skirt and bling; it focuses on the memorable ornaments--especially the blue ones! Thanks for sharing.

Happy New Year and Happy Blue Monday!

I'm lovin that sweet blue birdie--every Christmas tree needs at least one. Glad Nick was there for Christmas, Kansas is getting about 3" today, its not bad though--melting as soon as it hits the pavement. Have a safe and fun New Years Eve.

Hello Anne, I can't go to bed without wishing you a wonderful 2013. Your post is so sweet and it is no surprise that your are so loved by so many. I am very happy that the holidays were so special. That is because you are special.

We arrived home after Christmas from our trip to Europe. We had a wonderful time. The sights were amazing and we would love to go again. A different place though. It is good to be home though.

We quietly celebrated the New Year but tomorrow my sisters and NC family will be here for dinner. A small crowd of 15. Fun times.

Blessings and love,

Dear Anne,
Your Christmas tree is beautiful. I love that each ornament has a story or brings a time, place or person to mind. I wish you a year blessed with health, happiness and lots of love.
Your Friend,
