One of the nice things about the holidays, is that lots of people come up here to see their kids and we get to visit them too! We went to lunch with the Paxmans this week and to breakfast with the Thompsons on Saturday. We also got to see lots of family over the weekend, as Uncle Bill passed away, and while it is always wonderful to see all of the cousins, he will be missed.
Doug came over on Friday and helped Stacy put up the Christmas Lights - all the way around the whole house. It is helpful that there is no snow yet, much less slippery on the ol' roof.
We've been eating lots of yummy leftovers - lunch is served...and served...and served...
The only thing that would make things even better is if it would snow already!! It is plenty cold, but no snow! Well, I guess I have to say goodbye to the "endless weekend" and get back to reality and work tomorrow...

2.) A Christmas Gift for "someone special":I also completed two quilt tops for additional gifts and worked on a "hard" quilt -a New York Beauty - argh! Maybe still too advanced for me!!! - Okay, so it IS too advanced for me - can you say tucks and puckers out the wazoo????
My friends and I had a wonderful time being pampered and spoiled, we were just so excited every morning when we woke up and all we had to do was go and quilt some more! No cooking, cleaning, etc. People made us wonderful food 5 times a day! (Yes, 5!!) I got to sleep in the top bunk, since I was the youngest (ha ha, I can't say too often that I am the "youngest" of any group!). It was fine sleeping up there, but making up the bed was a trick best left for much younger gals than me.
We were spoiled with chocolate truffles and the makings and directions for this cute pincushion:Today, as I was doing laundry, dishes and the usual chores, I longingly recalled last week, when I didn't have to worry about any of that - but - I am so happy to be home with my family and I appreciate them even more; which is part of the reason I go in the first place.
