Pink Saturday/ Favorite Thing




Beverly at How Sweet the Sound is again hosting Pink Saturday with a new twist… over there and see the looooong list of Pinkies.

Very shortly after Roy and I married the first Christmas thing we bought was a Nativity and it has a special place in our hearts.






Happy Pink Saturday to all!

That is one of the most beautiful Nativities I've seen. Love the colors and poses of each of the pieces. Thanks for visiting Mr. and Mrs. Claus this morning at CollectInTexas Gal. I noticed a few cherries are missing! Merry Christmas....Sue

Barbara, that is one of the prettiest nativity sets I've ever seen! I love it. And I love the sentiment attached to it.

As to the SA, they are truly wonderful, and they stayed at 911 when everyone else was gone. They are the first to respond and the last to leave. They were the first group on the scene at 911, and someone took a banner from another group (that shall remain nameless) and put it in FRONT of theirs. I have that on eye witness authority.

Glad the SA's could help Roy and give him encouragement when his mom's house flooded. They truly are a great group. They have much treasure stored in Heaven!

You Nativity scene is just beautiful, so full of detail and love.
I can't have my Christmas until my Nativity is set up.
Merry Christmas to you

We don't need elaborate decorations or a big tree or numerous gifts under a tree. All any of us needs is to carry the spirit of Christmas in our hearts and to share it all year long with everyone we meet.

Thank you so much for sharing your blog with me today. Yes, I'm crazy about ♥PINK♥ but I'm also devoted to visiting some of the nicest blogs in cyberspace.

Hoping your weekend is filled with peace.
