Friday Five

1. My new red purse....Amelia and Todd gifted me with this pretty bag and I love the cherry red color.

2. My kids and grand kids enjoying some time feeding the fish at Grimmwood. These will be the good old days for the grands, as they look back their childhood. Or at least I hope it will be!

3.One of our favorite snacks this Christmas season was Firecrackers made with this seasoning.

I used the small saltine crackers rather than the bigger saltines and everyone loved them.

4. We went out for a Christmas afternoon movie and we saw Mary Poppins Returns

Emily Blunt was practically perfect in every way as Mary Poppins. 

5. A good picture of my Sweetheart.

Sister Kristi, captured this picture of Marvin out with the kids at the pond. I am very thankful for a loving husband who has provided well for his family. He will be retiring completely on January 4th. He got lots of tee shirts for Christmas as he is trading in the business attire for the casual look.

Congrats to Marvin. I know Grimmwood is a special place for both of you and your family. Thanks for sharing about the firecracker seasoning.

I had so many comments going on in the head...until....I saw the tee shirts for Christmas. Jeff says the moment he retires he is hauling all but one dress shirt and tie to Goodwill. He will save one for weddings and funerals, but that I am to bury him in a Columbia shirt, not a suit:)
I love the purse and those firecrackers are kind of addictive. Kristen made them once here. They were gone in minutes. I will have to go see Mary Poppins on my own or get Lindsay to go...maybe Pa Pa can babysit:)

What a fabulous shot of Marvin and the one of the kids and grandkids! Best wishes to you both as Marvin retires! Your new bag is lovely.

So much fun to read, Arlene! I will have to look for that Party Cracker Seasoning. I have never seen it.

I especially love the photo of the kids and dads feeding the fish. It looks like it was an absolutely perfect day to be out by the pond.

Have been having a catch up of your Christmas posts, it looks like you have had a wonderful time with the grandkids. Aren't they such a blessing. I love how you get photos with the grandkids each year.
Blessings as you look toward 2019.
