Congratulations to Mark Ingram for winning the first ever Heisman Trophy as a player from the University of Alabama. You are well deserving of this honor. ROLL TIDE!








Christmas Countdown - Christmas Layouts








HO! HO! HO!

It's that most wonderful time of year again when it seems that we never have enough time to think about all that needs to be done before Christmas arrives. Here are a few suggestions that I normally post each year. Unfortunately I am a little behind, so I hope that you have started without me!..lol

BTW, it is not too late to join in on the WU Christmas card exchange list - just let me know!

THE LIST (lol)

- purchase airline, train or bus tickets NOW!

- make hotel reservations if you are not staying with family or friends or if you are doing any overnight travel as well.

- if you are having an offsite holiday party, you need to look for a site NOW - it maybe too late (sorry I forgot to remind you).

- if you are needing a caterer, call one ASAP!..or if you are going to order food and then pick it up, the sooner you place your order the better.

- organize, organize, organize - and make lists!

- Holiday invitations need to be purchased, completed and mailed at least 3 weeks before your party - if at all possible.

- make your Christmas card list and go ahead and purchase your cards and Holiday stamps..also, addressing a few each day is most helpful and saves the hand too!

- prepare menus for your holiday meals and entertaining, and make your grocery lists as you go along.

- check holiday linens to see if they need cleaning or replacing...if you are going to need paper products, you might want to get then now to ensure that you have enough matching items.

- need I mention polishing silver?..lol..

- CHRISTMAS WISH LISTS! I ask my children and grandchildren to provide me with a list to avoid duplicates and to make sure that they get something that they really want. (You should see my 9-yr old granddaughters list! She made a top 20 list and divided it up between Santa, both sets of grandparents and her Aunt KayKay and THEN made a list exclusively for her Mom and Dad! ROFL)


I will be adding to this list as I think of other ideas. Please feel free to help!..lol




Here's a link to help you plan and organize for the Holidays.

lol...see, you have to buy
"The Elf on the Shelf" book and Elf kit.
The Elf is sent from Santa to watch to see who is being naughty and nice. You move the Elf around while the kids arn't watching. Nobody can touch or play with the Elf because he will loose his magical powers to communicate with Santa. Sometimes the Elk is mischivious and likes to play practical jokes. He also has the ability to "fly" from one house to the other. Heck, he even showed up here last night and stayed until the girls went home this afternoon!..lol

SSI - so glad to know that others appreciate Ingram's talent and recognize it. BTW, I didn't know that about John Heisman..interesting...thanks for dropping by - come back again!

Emmy!..thank you too!..so sorry that McCoy didn't win - I would have been happy for him had he won but he did win several other prestigious awards this week.
I am soooo NOT ready for Christmas - there are things that I need to be doing instead of playing here on the computer - that's for sure!
Yep, I survived the weekend..we had "The Elf on the Shelf" at our house to keep things under control!..ROFL

Code, OGal and Gator - thanks for dropping by with your congratulatory greetings! I am happy and proud of Ingram for winning this honor - he seems like a very humble young man who loves his sport and works hard FOR THE TEAM.
As always, there are lots of naysayers out there who disagree. All I can say is wait until next year and the year after. Ingram has two more chances to be a repeat recipient of the Heisman . Only time will tell.

What a great gift for a terrific player. If anyone deserved the Heisman it is Ingram. Bama's first but I am sure it won't be their last.

Awesome!! Truly thought they wouldn't give it to SEC this year after the domination. Really happy for him, and the Bama faithful. I'll be screaming Roll Tide along with you this year in the title game.

Hey Girl, its not that cold down there yet...you need to come up here or better still head out to Plapman's area. That poor fellow is going to have minus 40F windchills. Its sunny and not too bad here with temps above the freezing mark. Yup we are at a balmy 35F...

Have a safe and happy Saturday dear one. Keep warm. Just be glad you are not living in the Canadian Prairies...
