Wishing you a Very Merry Merry Christmas!!


I hope everyone is enjoying the wonder of the Christmas season!


2 days left for Christmas shopping!  Oh my!
I am actually finished with my shopping...I did a flurry of shopping the first week of December and got it out of the way before I started my week of classes last week for my insurance property and casualty license!
I became extremely sick at the beginning of the class last week and had the flu bug with an incredibly horrible migraine headache the whole week as I was trying to learn.
But miracle of all miracles....I passed the state exam yesterday!!!!  WhoooooooHooooo!!
If you know anything about state exams, they are not a breeze to pass.
Instructor said that our state is the third hardest in the country.  They make it difficult with trick questions so that you have to take the test again...making a big $75 profit on each test!  Grrrrr!

But that is behind me for now!  My boss let me have the rest of this week off and a sweet short week next week!  :D  I am so thankful for the break....a wonderful Christmas gift as I am tuckered with all the studying I have done over the past 3 months along with learning a new job!!!

I am sorry that I didn't even say boo for the past couple of weeks....too busy and then getting sick to squeeze in getting on my blog!
Thank you for all the ones who sent messages to me!  It was so sweet!
I have to tell you that it took me a few minutes to remember how to log back on to my blog and check in on it!! 


I look forward to spending Christmas day with my two beautiful granddaughters...



Little Miss C & Miss T...my granddaughters!


My beautiful daughter with her little girls! 

with their Mommy and Daddy along with....

my other beautiful daughter with her wonderful boyfriend/fiance!

Well, I have a lot to catch up on and to get ready for the big Christmas day so I will run for now....

but I sure hope everyone is enjoying this season and are taking a few minutes to stop
and remember...

The Reason of the Season
is
Jesus!

Merry Christmas!

Woohooo on passing the P&C test! I took that test in NJ about 10 yrs. ago and it was one of the hardest tests I have ever taken!

You enjoy your lovely holiday with your daughters and granddaughters! Merry Christmas to you!
