December

I can’t believe it is here already!  Seems like yesterday I was taking decorations down – now all this week I am putting them back up!  The first to go up was the tree, the lights and the advent calendar.  I put it together Sunday after J went to bed. He woke up to notice it and wanted to know “Mom, what are all the numbers on the door?”.  I had not put one up the last two or three years so he did not remember it.  I wanted to make one, but always have a really hard time deciding.  This one will do for this year.  I would like to make something a little more elaborate for next year.  I need to get through this  Christmas first.

Just a simple envelope out of felt hung on a button-lined piece of ribbon.  It was quite relaxing to sit and sew while Mister watched football.

I am getting into the full swing of Christmas this week.  Will make sure to put up all the decorations through out the week as well as a few other projects….Some are under wraps – so I won’t be able to spill the beans.  At least not yet….

Thanksgiving was great!  We had a really big crowd this year.  The biggest in a long time.  Didn’t get many pictures – too busy visiting….hope to receive a few via email from other family members.   This was the first year I didn’t stuff myself silly.  There is always too many dishes and deserts to choose from…..Ah the curse of the Thanksgiving table!
