Santa's Goose...er....CHICKEN!

 A beautiful, dreary, drizzling Saturday, in the NOT so sunny Sunshine State! 
Last night we talked and talked about what a GREAT excursion we had planned for today. Grammy, Mommy & Goose had PLANS  on this wonderful last Saturday before Christmas.

So what happens???

We get RAIN, that's what!!! NO playing in the snow(fake:), NO Bouncehouse, NO arts and crafts......


We DID have Breakfast with Santa!! And, a Photo Shoot(as in 1 photo--HA) And it went WELL...ahhh... NOT so WELL! She is still  scared of Santa:(

  We have been doing a little decorating, during the last few days.  I AM aware that Christmas is only a week away....Thank You:)   I found this little treasure out 'Salen,  recently.  

Beautiful isn't it?  I got this little {{{grin}}} baby for $1. Yep, ONE DOLLAR!!! Can U Believe it?? 

 it looks like this......

She has my musicial abilities:) HA

 SO what do ya think? Everything on the table AND the chair "covers" was thrifted/ gifted/UpLifted:) from various sources!  The little "dessert bowl" candleholders were my gramma's. The candles were a gift from LAST Christmas. The dessert tray/plate centerpiece, the pinecones, and the crochet doily were all thrifted. All the "linens" were gifted(except for the gold material I inserted in the frame--thrifted), as was the gold ribbon and the greenery. 

That WAS fun!!  

 I'm linkin up today:
