Even Alabaster the Bird joined in on the Christmas spirit and got blue bells to wear around his neck......then he ripped them apart and bent them so bad they wouldn't ring anymore.... OK, it was really tempting to put blue bells on Charlie the Turtle's neck....but I didn't....For more Blue Monday posts, please click here and go visit Ms Sally at Smiling Sally's Blog!

After Christmas every year I search Walmart, Target, Lowes, Home Depot, etc. for these bulbs. All these stores discount these bulbs after Christmas to around $1.00 to $2.00 per bulb. This plant is one that was given to me last year from a friend. I grow them inside the house the first year then I plant them outside. In Southern California they can bloom any month inside or outside!
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and don't forget to click here and go visit Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for more Pink Saturday posts!

My Grandmother and Mother use to also cook along with their dinner fried shrimp. They use to serve it on a pretty platter with pink flowers around the edges. Here is that platter today, I display it on a shelf in my living room.
Christmas Eve was our family's favorite day of year until December 24th, 2004. That is the day my father passed away. We have just started our Christmas Eve Tradition dinner up again, this time it is at my house on Christmas Eve and there is only a few of us. I am looking forward to this Christmas Eve when my Mom and I will serve my Grandmother's delicious spaghetti recipe from that precious white bowl.
Merry Christmas to all my blogging friends!

My husband rented a beautiful Suite on the top floor overlooking all these beautiful lights!He told me we had 7:00 dinner reservations. The Hostess took us to a beautiful room in the back to be seated. There I was startled with a screaming of SURPRISE!
I was embarrassed so I covered my face.....
The Barbie on the Cake also had a Boa and a Crown!
Here is a picture of my friends. Isn't my husband the greatest?
