    Just look through the pages from last month's secret pal churcae and you'll get the idea of different items that were sent and then you'll have your list from your partner to go by also. I love picking and choosing for someone new each month and well....I really like receiving them too!!

    Well, it'd work better if I had my magnifying glass. Wish we could see the whole thing - post one picture and then my mind will do the rest. We loved your part of the country when we lived there (Idaho and Colorado), but it simply got tooooo cold for us old folks!!

Sewing needles, sewing machine needles, material, magazine, templet, converter chart, embordery floss, pen, marker, yo yo maker and pattern, hand made stick pin, tote bag, tassels, lotion and rotary blade. Thank you so much.

    Jaba, your decorations are great.

    I lived in Wyoming for almost a year from Aug. 1978 to June 1979. It was quite an experience. We lived in Gillette. It was just a little place back then. My ex BIL and his family lived in Wright, he worked for ARCO at the mine. Wow, thatwas a long time ago.

    Thanks all of you!! He loves decorating this house and I love him to do it. He's saying I shouldn't have posted it yet, he has more to go. Gotta' love that electric bill but it's only once a year. I truly am lucky, he never complains.

    Jaba - love the Christmas lights at your house; it's one of those places you just have to drive once in a while to get your light fix for the season. Your husband does a beautiful job.

    Sent my info into Lori this morning - nothing like waiting for the last minute.
    Be good to yourself - do one thing each day that makes you smile.

    Well, Jaba, we are a teeny bit older than you - we're pushing the big 70 number, but it started getting colder for me back in my 50's and just went 'south' from there. I think I would've stayed in Colorado, but being closer to the kids was a great thing to do, so we're here in sunnier, warmer Tennessee. Love the house decorations - my hubby is a 'bah humbug' person. We don't decorate at all outside and very little inside. I manage to get some of my things up, but it's been many years since we've had lots of decorations out. Have one ceramic Christmas tree that my mother made - and I think that's the only reason I get to put it up is because she made it. I've learned to cut back, no sweat any more - it used to bother me lots. Enjoy your holidays.

    LOL

    Ok ok ok

    I had just sent Lori my info then came back here to find
    this post.

    So yeah I requested to be added to the sign up list.

    Jaba - The house looks amazing!!! I was never one to fiddle
    with decorating the outside of the house and when my girls
    were little I would decorate inside, but now that it is just Tim,
    the 4 furkids and myself well I don't mess with decorating now.

    I DO put something on the front door, and in fact my husband
    informed me last night that it was time to change put up the Christmas
    and take down the fall (believe me this is a FIRST for him telling me
    this, as he HATES Christmas).
