Has it really been ten days since I last posted? Needless to say, life has been on a fast pace since then.
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving despite the fact that we were missing about five children who had strep throat. We don’t want all of that spread about with Christmas quickly approaching. This was a photo of our immediate family – kids and grandchildren.
We always celebrate our Thanksgiving on the Saturday following as it allows the children to have Thanksgiving with their own families or with their in-laws. So….I was NOT out with all of the shoppers!!
Our fourth son and his family were down for the weekend and will be back again this coming weekend. It is always fun for the cousins to get to know each other. I think they will be good friends down the road.
Sunday was cleaning, laundry and putting away the Autumn decorations and Monday was a day of decorating for Christmas. It seems to take longer each year, but at the end of the day this is what I had to show for it. I made good headway, but there is still lots to do.
There hasn’t been a lot of sewing going on here, but I have been working away at trying to get this stocking finished for THIS Christmas.
I am almost done. I just have a few more gingerbread men, candy canes and flowers to fill the basket and a large cupcake with the name on it.
There is much more to share with you, but I must get to finishing up the house, setting tables and starting to cook for our big Christmas dinner this Saturday night. It is our annual adult dinner party for twenty two people. I don't know why I planned it just one week after our big Thanksgiving. Guess I just wasn't thinking right.
I hope that everyone is staying restful and enjoying the advent season.
