7 days...

in the next 7 days, this community will have this all filled up...

in 7 days, we start distributing toys to area families...

every child gets a coloring book and crayons...

every family gets a movie and a game for family nights...

we need so much more...

but we're getting there...
;0)
if I am scarce around here for the next week to 10 days...
just know I am trying out all the cool toys!
and mega shopping with the monetary donations...
;o)
pray that we are a blessing to those who come...

our little downtown!

it is so Christmassy...

I will  have to count the trees around the square the next time we are up there...
they surround the whole thing...

and some of the store fronts are awesome...

so just sit back and enjoy...








hope you enjoyed the trip around the square!

Christmas time in a little shop downtown...

this little shop isn't open yet...

but I cannot wait until it does...

the owners are busy working full time and they have other properties here that they are trying to get going...

they have a small cottage with 2 bedrooms that they rent out for folks needing a place to stay when they come to town...

and now they are working on what will be a bed and breakfast...
each place is on each side of their home...
so it will be easy for them to manage...
and since they live on Main Street, just a block or so away from this wonderful little shop...
it will be an easy walk to work...
for  when they retire from their real jobs...

don't you just love this silver and bright green color scheme?
with a touch of black...
awesome display and it just pops in this little bitty town!

and just a heads up out there!
I saw the four letter word in the forecast yesterday...
its a week or so away...
but its coming...
I don't think its flip flop weather anymore, Toto!

its been a whole week!

first off, last Tuesday, Craig was hurt at work...
and needed 3 staples...
he is fine and those are coming out today!

we started setting up for the toy drive...

so thankful for this community...

and the donations haven't even gotten started yet...

the downtown is so pretty!
I have more photos of that for later this week...

its so much fun to see everyone getting their Santa on!

I have but a few things out...
no time and we still have babies...
and in between all of this...
we had Thanksgiving...
adopted out a baby or 3...
down to 4 that are ready to go...
and one that needs to be checked by the vet...
might be cross eyed or have vision problems...

I think 99% of the leftovers are gone...
so I have to cook today...
been cleaning and getting ready for the tree to go up...
when the rest of the babies leave here...
my rescue contact has been with family in California for the last week..
the one left in charge has been no help at all...

and I have come to a decision...
a hard one at that...
this is the last litter...
I am not able to do it on my own...
and with both guys working days...
only off on the weekends...
its just not possible for me to keep doing this...
because I do have down days...
I haven't told the rescue yet...
its not going to go over well at all...
;(
but I have to do what's best for me...
and keep me going or I am no help to anyone at all...

hope your last week was a good one...
and you were stuffed with good food...
surrounded by good people...
and blessed with all you have...
we sure were...
;)

our town...

Christmas is starting to show around here...

its a start...

busy weekend here and 2 babies went to their forever home...

it looks more like Fallmas here...
still have the fall leaves that are almost all down...

the yard was mowed for the last time yesterday...
and the leaves mulched and thrown in the flower beds...
didn't get half the things done outside that I wanted to, but did get so much done inside...
and the summer clothes, 98% of them...
are put away and winter stuff pulled out...
drug out the mittens, hats and earmuffs...
cleaned and ate chili from the fire station...
fundraiser for the 4th fireworks...
just a good weekend to be home...
DH did the grocery run and brought me home a whopper...
Craig and I hung out here and worked from one project to the next...
getting ready for this next week...
got a turkey breast thawing in the fridge...
all the trimmings are bought...
gearing up for the toy drive set up and official kick off!

have good days...
I am napping today, that's for sure!
