Good evening to all my dear friends. Today was a very pretty day the sun was out and the wind was not too bad and the temp. was in the high 30s.  So my  Sweet Sister and my Baby Girl Heather, and her son and I went to the Mall to just walk and browse. So many sales going on.  We had a very enjoyable time together.   I should have remembered to take my camera with me. darn it.....  oh well I will try to remember next time.  Tomorrow I am going to take down my Christmas tree,  some times I feel sad to take it down. but I do need to start painting again, and the tree is in my way.  I have found a different Sage Green that I  am painting on my upper walls. My sister is painting her bedroom that color, and I just fell in love with it. So I am going to use it for my family room. Now hubby does not know about the color change, I have two walls to repaint so that is not too bad. I will take before and after photos so you can see the difference.  So please don't tell hubby ok it will be our little secret ok... shhhhh   lol    So now I will show you some Christmas photos just a few...
