"IT'S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR!" ( sister judy's birthday trip)

Some of my fun treasures from the trip!

I'm going to plant some herbs in these pans out in the back garden next year.

Really like these earrings I got at "Ginsey Rose" in St Charles, Mo.

Aren't these a precious two?

I'm anxious to get these "Chandelier Lights" on the front porch this year!

My page in the Adult Coloring book for this trip. Sister Judy's is pictured in my 2nd
We found this very neat Antique Barn on the way home in Truesdale, Mo. (Warrenton Exit 193)

Such cute kitchen cupboards!

Really neat old church!

Old St. Charles by the Missouri River. Really a fun picturesque place to shop and eat! St. Charles was where the first Capital of Missouri was located until 1917 when the present build was erected in Jefferson City


Sister Judy and I had fun a couple of mornings trying to work on our crochet kits in the Lobby of Comfort Suites

This cute Cupboard was in a cafe we ate at on the way home.

We also colored in our Adult Coloring Books and played cards in the breakfast room at the Motel after hours.

There she is in all her GLORY!

I have out tree up and am working on the rest of the house inside and out. I like to have it pretty well done by Thanksgiving for the family. Then the first of the parties is Dec. 1 this year.

Wee still use some bubble lights on the tree too!

I was in charge of decorating the pulpit table at church for November. I used my recent God's Handiwork painting as the background.

Our Church had a service to honor the deacons who had become Deacon Emeritus this past year. Maurice is one after 30 years of service.

We also ordained 2 fine young men as deacons. They are pictured on the front role on each side of out pastor. Maurice is on the second role first on the left.

Our "G0-G0 GIRLS" celebrated the last quarter birthdays with an outing to Olathe, Kans to the Christmas Surplus Store and then fun lunch in Martin City at our favorite barbecue place "Jack Stack". Blessings on You thru this Holiday Season!  Hope you'll check out my other blog too at


  1. What a "colorful" life you lead! I loved seeing all the cupboards your stumbled on during your trip...and how you squeeze the life out of those hotel lobbies :) We do that, too. Congratulations to your husband on "retiring" from all those years of service to your church family.

    And now I'm off to visit your other blog. Have a full & fun day, Marlynne.

  2. Absolutely beautiful. I hope some day soon my sister Robin and I have more time to spend together. I would love to take a vacation with her. Happy Birthday Judy.
