Friday Five

1 December Birthdays

This is a week of birthdays in the Grimm Family. Margaret turned 9 on Dec 2nd, Elliott turned five on December 5th and as you know, Ben turned 40 yesterday.

2.Honoring 41

What a week of pageantry in Washington as we honor a former president who was such a man of character.  I was privileged to be able to be at home on Wednesday morning in order to watch the funeral at the National Cathedral.  Truly a life well lived.

3. Ginger Minis

I found these small Pepperidge Farm Gingerman Minis at Publix this week. They are so yummy and only 190 calories for a package.

4.  A New Look at Grimmwood

We had some trees cut at Grimmwood and Bruce sent us this picture of the house from across the pond.

5. What Christmas is All About

Just a reminder for all of us in this busy season!

You home looks so inviting nestled in the trees near the pond! I would want to walk all through those woods! Holiday hugs!

Happy birthday to Margaret and Elliot! I love seeing Grimmwood. Bad bad Arlene; off to look for those gingerbread man minis! Thank you for the Charlie Brown graphic; so true about the reminder. Enjoy your Friday!

Happy Birthday to Margaret and Elliot. I love the new look of Grimwood.
I wish I could have watched the funeral. I told my administrator that I needed a tv in my office to watch it, but for some reason they wanted me to work. :)

Happy birthday to all the December babies!! I am also included!! Your Grimmwood looks great with the retaining wall and stairs in place. Nice finish to your get-away home. Such a peaceful setting. I will be looking for those little gingerbread men at Publix! Yum! Yes - that is indeed what Christmas is all about!
