Almost the big day!

Here it is the night before Christmas Eve. Hope you are ready for the big day! Today I spent the afternoon wrapping up everything that still needed to be wrapped. I have to work until Noon tomorrow and still need to pick up some gift cards, so as much as I hate to, I guess I am going to have to go do it.

The kids are visiting my DIL's parents in Leesburg,VA for Christmas and DD won't be home for Christmas this year either. On Christmas Eve we will be going to my MIL's and to my parents for Christmas Day with my brothers and their families. The kids should get back to our house sometime Wed. night and then we will have Christmas with them on Thursday. Hope we can hold the kids back that long.

I just want to wish all my friends a Merry Christmas and hope that all of you have a wonderful Christmas with family and friends.

Friday update

Here it is: Quaker Christmas. This is what I have been focusing on stitching wise. I finished up page one last night and have used 4 1/2 skeins of CC Balsam Fir floss.
I am really enjoying this piece.
This week has really been going fast. On Wednesday I went shopping all afternoon. I still haven't finished my Christmas shopping yet, but at least the grandkids are done and this morning I spent some time wrapping also. I really don't like to wrap. All that time spent wrapping it and in a few seconds it is all just trash! LOL
I finally found the laptop that I have been looking for and at the right price. So, I guess that is my Christmas present to me. I even picked up a wireless mouse for it this week while shopping. DH will take over the other one. DS really wanted me to sell it to him. He really needs a new one for work. He is saving up money and getting gift cards from Best Buy for Christmas and for his birthday in Jan. in hopes of purchasing a new one.
Have a great weekend!

Yeah, Vacation time again!

Yes, this week I am on vacation. The last one of the year. I hopefully will get some more of my Christmas shopping done, gifts wrapped, etc. That is if the weather cooperates. We are supposed to get freezing rain almost every day this week.

Oh well, I can always stay indoors and stitch or read a book! I can still get the gifts wrapped and I could always shop online if I have to.

Still need to get the tree up and the decorations out. Maybe that can get done this week also. I always have good intentions to get lots done, but it doesn't always get done.

Until next time, have a great day!
