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!
