Christmas in July

Okay, Cheryl.  You asked for it.  I’ve had this bumping around my ever-muddled brain for a couple of weeks, and finally was able to put it all together.

I might even steal some of my own ideas for our summer activities.  (Mr. H. says I have to remove the snow from the windows, though.  It might have been too soon – we had snow last week)

I hope this helps and I hope you have a ball.  I expect pictures and updates…

If you want a better look at any of these suggestions, just click on the page you are interested in.  But..because I love you…I am also attaching a pdf file that you can download to your computer and print out if you want…

    Oh Jilly!
    I know how busy you are with work, your own projects for the family (ie: Grandmamma and Grampy Campy…what a concept!), and Mr. H, so I figured that my dilemma wasn’t high on your to-do list. But WOW!!! I never expected this! I am always amazed at your sense of style and unique creativity. I don’t know where you ever find the time to think up all this stuff, let alone do all of it. Do you ever sleep?? Thank you a million times over for taking the time and energy to help out this old (and I mean old) friend. I love you for it and I also love all of your posts on “What Will We Do Today”! You make me laugh a lot and sometimes cry, but always I’m astounded by your writing. I will be printing out all of your suggestions and incorporating as many of them as I can into my celebration. I’m not sure that it will happen this year as I will be in Illinois over 4th of July to see Jeff’s new baby (it’s so cute to see how excited he is). But I’m committed to make this celebration happen the following July (plus it will give me plenty of time to implement all of the plans and ideas). Your input will be a tremendous help in making this a grand success and hopefully a new family tradition.
    THANK YOU!!!

    Love you,
    Cheryl

      Oh, it was so fun to do. And I just kept thinking of you and your family celebrating, so it was almost like I was at your party…which is crazy since you haven’t actually had the party, but…that’s just how I roll..

      I don’t know why I didn’t do the math, but of course, you want to be up here for the new baby!!! How exciting for all of you. How many grand-kids do you have now??

      At any rate, I had a ball, I found some things I will absolutely steal (from myself, so not sure that’s stealing…I’ll have to ask Sybil)

      Love you guys…Keep Cool down there in sunny SC!!

      Love Jilly
