  1. This is a great idea Laura! Lots of wonderful things on your bucket list too! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I hope you know that I visit when I can but can't always comment. Love the new look you have here too.

  2. What a great list. You will have a wonderful holiday as you deliberately make the most of it and celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! Merry Christmas to you!

  3. Wonderful Christmas list.. I have got a few things done, but need to update my
    list.. Hope you have a wonderful week.

  4. Good morning dear Laura,

    That is a long list. I certainly hope you find time to do all the special things on your list. I really like your bread and soup party idea - mmmm sounds so good!


  5. Hi Judy,
    I'm not making much progress on anything right now. The family has too many needs currently. Seems everyone needs momma. Imagine that! I always wanted to be popular when I was young. If I'd only known how popular I'd be later in life. ~smile~
    Blessings for happy Christmassing.

  6. I don't think I'll make it, but it's worth trying Annie!

  7. Hi Deb,
    I don't expect, I'll do it all, but I'll enjoy doing some. I'll be writing about that in the December 5th edition of Harvest Lane Cottage. Stay tuned....
    Blessings to you,
    Laura Lane

  8. {{{big smiles}}}---love the list...which is pretty daunting, I might add {{more smiles}}...have a beautiful Friday, friend.

  9. I won't do it all, Linda. But a girl can dream.

  10. What a fun list, Laura. You are off to a great start on it :)

    I must say that I love the festive look of your blog. Wishing you a delightful weekend, dear one. Thanks for sharing with Roses of Inspiration. Hugs!

  11. Hello Stephanie,

    It's always a joy to hear from you. It's a super busy month at the restaurant and with other obligations. My husband and I just looked at the calendar together. We don't have a free night for all of us until the 14th. In fact, it's the only free night we have until the 20th! So we are going to decorate our tree, which has been up since the 1st, on the 14th. We're going to have all the kids home and make a party of it. I hope you're finding your Christmas season a bit less busy.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Laura Lane
