The view out my PA window

Don't let the sunshine fool you, its freezing!!!!! I awoke to -2 this morning! Now it is 12:30 and only 13.
We had a great Christmas in our new home. The daughter and her hubby came down the day after Christmas and stayed till Sunday. Then The in-laws came New Years day and stayed for two days.
The Christmas tree looked so pretty in the livingroom and fit so nicely, now that its gone it looks bare and the room looks so big!

How was everyone's Christmas?


Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving from our very snowy new home!
Of course our first snowfall here at our new place would just happen to come the day before Thanksgiving when I am having family over that has to travel!
The daughter and hubby are coming tonight and the In-laws are coming tomorrow.
It is suppose to stop and actually be kinda nice tomorrow.

Here are some pics of my lovely snowy home!

I hope everyone has a great and safe Thanksgiving!


We've moved!

I am sure you have all head by now that we have moved to PA.
My  header picture is a small lake just north of us. It is a really beautiful lake and you can drive all the way around it and park and get out at several spots.

We had the closing on our NY house just last week, that is a huge load off our minds!
We have a beautiful new home in PA now and we are very happy here!

Here are a few pics, but will add more as we make it more a home.

So guess who got married over the summer???

Most of you know by now that my one and only favoritest daughter got married in Aug.!
This is how it all came about -

I knew that they were going to get engaged, I knew for a while. But the BF had actually called me and told me he was going to ask her and needed my help getting her to the place where it was suppose to happen - one of their fav. restaurants. I asked Ashley if she could meet me for dinner and if she beat me there to just go in and wait for me (knowing that I would never actually show up). So, she got there and walked up to the rest. in the rain and a man covered with an umbrella tapped her on the shoulder - it was Sean. He asked her to marry him right there in the rain, under an umbrella in front of their fav. restaurant.

About a year ago they had gone to NYC for vacation and had such a great time that they thought it would be great to get married in Central Park in NYC. So that's what they did!

On July 21st. I had a real nice shower for her at Americana Winery and had it catered. My friend April made beautiful cupcakes, I made all the decorations. It was perfect and beautiful and I couldn't have asked for it to be any better!

On Aug 1st. they went to New York City - and got married in Central Park on the evening of Aug 2nd. Then spent a couple days in the city.

Then on Aug. 18th we had a reception at Taughannock Park. I rented a small pavilion and a huge tent, lots of tables and chairs. It was a casual dish to pass event. Sean's mom decorated the tables and was my go-to person in time of need (she was also in charge of alcohol - very important job), his dad did an awesome sound system. My friend April make the cake and Glen, April, her husband and I did the lights. April and Dave own a Taxi co. in Ithaca and we decorated one of the taxis and he went to pick them up at their apt. I was very nervous how everything would go - but everything was perfect!

This is one of my favorite pictures! This was the father daughter dance - she looks so happy here!
