Someone once said -

"There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for the people who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living." Amen

 Good Morning Bloggers...it is December and the busiest time of the year for me! I had a loooooong weekend with back to back gatherings and parties with friends and clubs....what fun....Thursday was my "Stitch n; Chicks" party, and although it was a smaller group this year, due to illness and such, we still had our usual terrific evening! Patricia won the door prize Angel, Debb [me] won the "Christmas" colors contest. We exchanged gifts and of course sang our Christmas song[with changed wording to match our group] and ate a yummy meal!!!

 Next Friday was my Red Hats party with the Social Butterflies.... :) It was at the Vice Queen's house and she put on a fabulous affair...we entered to her player piano playing Christmas songs, all indulged in song yummy food and then drew tickets to choose our gifts that were under the tree, I got a beautiful cashmere scarf and gold pin, then the VQ continued to serenade us with Christmas songs that we all joined in on singing...a fantastic evening...I even won the cutest toy soldier ornament as one of the door prizes....thank you ....

Saturday a few of my stitching gals and I went off to our usual Christmas craft fair in Norco....it is always a favorite as they make and sell the best Gingerbread cookies ever....mmmmmm just smelling them makes your mouth water.... and my BFF stopped by to join us for lunch. :)

 Sunday DH and I went to our car club's party...it was a dress up affair and they had rented the whole restaurant...wow....it was an Italian restaurant....yummy!!!! There was a lot of chatting and munching on scrumptious hors d' oeuvres and they had an excellent band where DH and I got to put on our dancing shoes and swirl around the floor several times.... ate a grand dinner and played a fun Bingo game....
