Merry Christmas

Sorry for my delay in posts. We had to make a trip to Kansas. My mother-in-law had a massive stroke. She is stable, and we are hopeful her recovery will be swift. Thanks to all of you who sent thoughts and prayers.

Upon returning home—and besides playing catch-up at work—I had the final preparations to complete for Breakfast with Clifford the Big Red Dog. The event was Saturday morning, and, OMG did we have a turnout! It was wonderfully successful! Sometime today I must get Clifford back into his large cardboard box and on his way to New York via UPS.

We also celebrated Isabelle’s third birthday on Saturday afternoon/evening. Her true birthday is Wednesday, the 23rd. She informed me she is going to Toys R Us on Wednesday to buy a Dora kitchen, so it’s a good thing we celebrated on Saturday. Don’t you wish you could see life through the eyes of a three year old some days?

Jess and I went shopping on Sunday—bless his heart for taking me. I needed the pick-up truck to haul the things I wanted to buy for the kids, but don’t like driving ‘his baby’ if I don’t have to. Tonight I need to buy more wrapping paper so I can wrap those big boxes. I also got my cards done last night and dropped off at the post office this morning. One more shopping trip, and one more trip to the grocery store, and I should be set and ready for Christmas!

On the writing side…I received a wonderful review for Badland Bride from Romance Junkies. Reviewer Audrey says, “BADLAND BRIDE is romance at its finest.”
I’m also very honored to say that I was invited to be the spotlight author at Love Western Romances for January. So please stop by their site and say hi after the New Year.

Company is expected to arrive today, so I’m sending you my Christmas wish now. I hope you get everything you asked for, and that your entire Holiday Season if filled with hope, love, and kindness.
