It's here! Its the season! Get a moving, time is wasting. There are Christmas trees to decorate, presents to buy, cards to write, and the list goes on and on! 
The Thanksgiving decorations are stowed for another year and the boxes of Christmas decorations seem to come from every possible storage area just waiting 
                                      to be displayed.

As with so many holidays, Christmas at our house has its traditions too. One of the highlights seems to be decorating gingerbread houses. What began with two families had now grown to include our children's spouses and grandchildren. Everyone brings candy and their secret blueprints to decorate their special prefab house.  When they are finished they are dusted with powdered sugar snow and pictures are taken.

When the holidays gets you just a little too frazzled don't forget to take a step back and take  moments all in, the good ones and the not so good ones.  From the smiles on the littlest of faces, frosting all over the counters, too many parts leftover from assembling the bike, and who is coming to visit?

Trace Adkins song says it perfectly. "You're gonna miss this / you're gonna want this back / you're gonna wish these days hadn't gone by so fast."

Enjoy the new 'Gingerbread House' BerryWeather  and 'Home for the Holiday' which is still one of my favorite.  You will find new wallpapers to coordinate and a few new BatteryEx icons posted along with a special one you can have your name on the stocking.  Look at the new Custom tab for instructions.

We may not have the Christmas shopping done, the cards written, or the outfits purchased, but it's so easy to have your BlackBerry looking in the holiday spirit even if we aren't quite there yet.

I can almost smell the wonderful aroma of a turkey in the oven; hearing the laughter of little kids, the sound of the front door opening to the big kids coming home, and the hug from Grandpa that makes the world right again.

Thanksgiving is family, friends, football, turkey, smoke alarms, the guys standing outside watching the deep fryer, the pies-oh the pies, and last but not least the best turkey sandwiches ever.

Our families tried a few years ago to take turns going around the table to express what we are thankful for which had most of us trying to use our dinner napkins as tissues.  I want to try that again and I don't care if we all cry. They are all groaning now.

Let's take just a little time out of our overly committed days to be more thankful for our health, cherish our loved ones, celebrate new friends, and look to....     Oh no! How many days before Christmas???

Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving with family, friends, food and football.

Enjoy the new wallpapers and BatteryEx Icons to keep your BlackBerry looking perfect.

Veterans Day

November is a busy month! Halloween decorations have been put away, our political yard signs stowed, and preparations are underway for Thanksgiving. Let's all take a moment to pause and reflect on our Veterans.  November 11th is Veterans Day; a day intended to honor and give thanks to all Veterans of military service. Because of their service and sacrifice we feel safer and more secure in an unsafe world.  Our lives are so busy we sometimes overlook the things that we take for granted.
Thank you to all Veterans for your dedication and honorable service to our country.

Election Day

Tuesday November 6th is Election Day!

Phones are ringing with last minute efforts by candidates and proposition proponents. I have to agree with the little girl in the viral video…I’m tired of all of this. But wait, our Blackberries need to be ready!
Two new wallpapers, my very first BerryWeather, and a nice new red check mark for your BatteryEx will brighten up your day and hopefully keep you smiling into the long night ahead.
