Christmas with the Simmons clan

Well....we had a nice one and a half week visit to Connecticut. I went to a Kenny Rogers Christmas concert with mom.....and did allot of shopping and preparing for Christmas Day.
Christmas was fun and crazy as was great to be with the family.
Jeff and I are now in North Carolina. We will spend New Years with some friends in Boone, NC. then head back to Carthage where we will stay for a little longer before we head south to Texas for most of the winter.
Below are some pics and two videos of our crazy Christmas day....these are long and probably will only be of interest to the family...but you are all welcome to watch.

I hope to post some pictures soon of our trip to Steve and Anitas.

World Famous Carthage Christmas Parade

Another fun event.
I don't know about the World Famous part...but that is how they advertise this parade. It seemed much smaller than the last time we saw it. Jeff and Adele both got lots of candy that were thrown from the floats.
It was a chilly night. Unlike the past two nights here. They are having record warm temps here. It was high seventies today, and will be in the seventies the next few days.
The fur boys want to be outside all the time now that it is warm.
So do we. We will enjoy it while we can, we leave on Monday for the cold northeast for Christmas....burrrr.

I love my new pjs

Ok...I am not normally a animal print lover....and i wouldn't have chosen these if they weren't sooooo soft....but they are sooooo soft and comfortable that i bought two pair and thinking i should run out and get a third. They are micro fleece. There were different colors and patterns..but this was the only one in brown.
I bought these at Walmart for 12.86 a pair...and are made in china...oh well....
I would wear these all day if I could.

Homey sweet Homey

Howdy all,

I was just hanging around the other day and thought I would take a few updated indoor pictures of our Homey.
You can view the slide show below or click on the link here to see the full size pictures and album in webshots. As you can see I love anything pinks and sagey greens and blues....and roses roses roses...shabby chic..kinda... Luckily Jeff doesn't object to my style.

I left the sofa bed open in the living room...because it seems like whenever i want to sit in it I have one or two fluffy fur balls that want to sit with i need all the room i can get....

The views out the window are what we are seeing of Adele and Craig's yard.
Nice gardens and sculptures.

We love our Homey and it has given us 6 plus years so far of travel, We haven't yet found any need to get a new one..

So here's a big thanks to our Homey for running well and keeping us comfortable for so may hoping it has many more years left in it.
