Time to put the tree away

Another Christmas has come and gone, and is time to take the decorations off the tree, and put it all away for another year. I pray that 2012 will be a wonderful healthy and peaceful New year for us all. Happy New Year.

Christmas 2011

The Powell Kids Christmas 2011.

Keri, Dustin, Karla in Pink, Kenyon, Kenley,
Hunter in gray, and Amber

We had a fun Christmas Celebration, with lots of snow on the ground!
Kenley brought Pizzas, and Karla read the Christmas story, and Hunter
and Karla were Santa, giving out the gifts. It was a very special time.
We are very blessed to have been given the family that we have! and very
thankful that God gave his Son so we would have life ever lasting.
We could never thank Him enough.
John 3:16

T-Bone Blanket

Keri and T-Bone with their Christmas Blanket
Painting of T-Bone
Fabric made at with the image of my painting. I put a layer of batting and flannel, and quilted it with my sewing machine. They loved their little 'blankee'.

Christmas Memories

I found this old car in Lubbock, TX, and thought it would make a nice card.
This painting was poured, using red, blue and yellow. I used miskit on the tree limbs, and top of car and part of the snow on the ground. It was done a few years ago, but I always have fun dragging out some of my favorites. This is what it looked like here during Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. We don't normally have a white Christmas and it was beautiful.

When our kids were little they dressed up in towels, and played 'Christmas'. This is from a photo i found of them. They had a little wooden stool and Keri had her doll wrapped up and laying on it, and they were praying. It was so cute. I just made up the background. This was done 'several' years ago, but always brings back such sweet memories for me. They probably don't even remember it!
