I Know I Said I Wouldn't, But....

What can I say?  I've got pictures and I like to share them!

We had Christmas early at our son and daughter in law's house.  What a beautiful tree!

And isn't that fireplace pretty?  It was a good day to have a fire - rainy and cold (well, cold for us anyway).

I finished their quilt very early this morning (though I did manage to sew through my finger in the process - no major damage, thank God!).  They liked the fleece on the back.  This one gave me a bit more trouble.  My friend Wanda says that's because fleece is a knit.  Makes sense.

Yes, he is a silly one, but we love him!  (There was a bit of fighting over whose the quilt was.)

We all had lots of fun and lots of good food, too.  Sorry, no pictures of that.


 I was pleased to see Larry and Ruthie acting like a normal brother and sister,

but that didn't last long!

Nikki was very pleased with her Fat Kitty, especially knowing that G'ma had made it just for her.

Going back in the den now to open our "at home" presents and have a little late supper.

Hope your Christmas is everything you want it to be.  We have church in the morning and will be there celebrating the true meaning of Christmas - the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ!

Hugs and kisses,
