100 Awesome Things!

Over at Jeanette's blog I found this video and the idea behind is simply awesome.

My friend Paula shared the link for this blog.  I LOVE this idea!  I am going to do a whole year of awesome.  That's just 2 things a week to help me focus on what is awesome in my life! I am making it my project for 2011.

I joined in this project for next year! Check it out and spread the word!

I was "reminded" last night by my daughter Katy that it has been a LONG time since I've done a new blog post.  This from the child that isn't even a "follower" of my blog.  LOL.  SO I thought I would post some pictures of what has been keeping me busy lately. 

  36 goodie bags ready to be handed out at the children's department Christmas party.

100 bags filled and ready to hand out to all the children at the Christmas Eve service at church.

60 Christmas cards.  Hand made.  Addressed.  Almost ready to mail.  I'm especially grateful for a husband that doesn't mind writing a fun family "letter".  From time to time that journalism degree he has comes in handy at home!
"Treats" to hand out at the family get together this weekend.  We don't really exchange gifts per se but I love to send a little something fun (and not too expensive) home with each family and each kiddo.  These are probably my favorite things to shop for.  I guess you could say they are a fancy party favor. 

So you see.....lots of detail work filling my time this month.  (And yes, I am occasionally bogged down by the quantities!)

Next event?  The senior adult luncheon this Thursday.  More pictures to come then!

Worth it All.....

Remember the Teddy Bears??? The party I made them for was last night.  I was at my sister in law's wedding last night but got the following Facebook message today:

"Ian liked the bear you made. He says it has a green ribbon bow on with a heart on its body. He named it Beary because it is a bear. He says it does not talk because it is not real. It is a toy. All your hard work made one very happy Ian. Thank you!"

Nothing better than making a child happy!  :-)
